Full Description

During the first half of the 20th century, wealthy Catanians would build their villas on the hills north of town, enjoying cooler temperatures and a greener landscape on the hilly outskirts of the city. This property is a glorious, unscathed example of those times.
This property is an elegant four bedrooms villa on two floors plus basement, with a garden space at the front and another one in the rear. The villa is set back from the street and the front garden is embellished with lavish Mediterranean vegetation, resulting in a theatrical effect and conferring majesty and prestige to the building. The rear garden instead has a more intimate quality.
The MAIN FLOOR hosts a large living-room and parlour, a study, a bedroom, a second mezzanine bedroom, a dining-room, a kitchen with a pantry room, and an elegant full bathroom with shower. A wide and very spacious terrace occupies the entire front space at this level, giving access to the front garden. In the rear of the building, another enclosed and intimate garden space is invisible from the street: on one side of this garden, a roofed rustic style external dining area is endowed with a wood fire oven and linked directly to the kitchen. Paths in both garden spaces are paved in cobblestone and inlaid with lava stones.
The UPPER floor hosts a larger living-room, a smaller living-room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a small second kitchen and a terrace overlooking the front garden. Both the apartments on the main and upper floor are in good state of repair and endowed with a central heating system.
The BASEMENT is in a shell form state. Presently, a part of it is used as a garage; a third apartment may be created in the rest of it, with its own separate access from the street. It may also be used as a separate space for working.
This area is inhabited by locals and features food shops and a few cafes. The city centre and the seaside areas of Catania can be reached by underground. A few other period properties nearby have been transformed into small hotel structures, to cater for travellers by car. This location allows to move fast in and out of Catania by car, to park it securely, and to reach the city centre in a few minutes by public transportation.
