The Venetian Villas represent a unique historical, artistic and cultural heritage, such as this property listed among the most important Venetian villas and characterized by so much elegance, sober and refined, in the external elements and in the evocative interiors well distributed and in perfect conditions of use due to the excellent state of preservation of the entire complex thanks to a always complete and constant maintenance. Built in the early nineteenth century, the villa, with its large barchessa and adjoining cedar house and adjacencies, stands in a vast romantic park in the heart of the town of Vicenza and has facades with classical lines with string-course cornices and architraved windows surmounted by cymatiums on the main floor and curved and triangular pediments on the mezzanine floor with short external staircase. Internally, a large vestibule introduces the large central hall with a circular perimeter onto which open axial corridors connecting the various rooms, all of which are well maintained and bright, while on the main floor, dominated by the high central hall illuminated by the domed lantern on the top of the vaulted ceiling, a great wealth of rooms, studies and service compartments underscore the design attention to the living comfort of the villa embellished with important frescoes and decorations of the period magnificently preserved and valuable sculptural groups. Adding to the splendor of the refined rooms are original Venetian-style floors extraordinarily preserved and also made with fragments of precious marble from the Baths of Caracalla. In the basement with striking cross-vaulted ceiling, a wonderful tavern with fireplace, services, the well, accessory rooms and authentic stone flooring. From the plant engineering point of view, the villa and its adjacencies are complete with fully functioning and constantly maintained technological equipment. The large barchessa, in similar excellent condition, with the large tuscan portico preserved from a pre-existing dominical complex, offers very well-kept and habitable rooms such as the spacious party hall with the ancient fireplace and bright glass windows, the accommodation for the janitor and numerous rooms with studio and guest services. Completing the complex is a delightful greenhouse with cedar house and adjoining shed as well as a capacious porticoed warehouse developed on two levels with a farmyard in front. Another outstanding element is the large romantic park of 10 hectares with fountain and centuries-old plants of valuable tree essences concentrated in the area around the complex. Good level of privacy guaranteed by the ancient walls and dense green screening toward the built-up area. Pleasant open and boundless views toward the park and some glimpses of the western hills. With the nearby city of Vicenza, and Venice with its airport 50 minutes away, the property is also well connected to Verona, Lake Garda, and, to the north, the Dolomites.
