'Art-nouveau' mansion with breathtaking sea view
Historic Art Nouveau villa located on the first hills of Cecina with spectacular sea views of the Etruscan Coast overlooking the islands of Elba, Giglio and Capraia.
The Villa, dating back to the 19th century, measures approx. 513 sq. m. over three full floors. The entrance into the villa is through a 20-foot tall roofed terrace with stately columns. Off the spacious hallway there are doorways to four rooms: a sitting room with a frescoed ceiling and a fireplace, a large studio (also frescoed), an entertainment room with en-suite bathroom (easily convertible into an additional bedroom), and a dining room with a vaulted ceiling that can seat up to 20 guests. Also on the ground floor is a fully equipped eat-in kitchen complete with fireplace and bespoke travertine counters, another guest bathroom, laundry room and a very bright covered veranda.
A wide Carrara marble staircase leads to the First Floor, which features a large hallway with access to four double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and frescoed ceilings. On this floor there is a large rear terrace for sunbathing and entertainment and a smaller sitting terrace with sea view, ideal for an evening aperitivo watching the sunset.
The Top Floor has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
All floors are connected by a glassed elevator.
Next to the villa there is a 86 sq. m. dépendance with kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The property comes with electronic entrance gate, a tree lined driveway with lampposts, a 100 sq. meter in-ground swimming pool overlooking the town of Cecina and the Etruscan Coast, and 18.000 sq. meters of land, including about one hectare of olive grove. The villa is located 800 meters from the village of Riparbella, 10 km from the beaches of Cecina and 40 km from the Pisa airport.
