Description of buildings
Villa Isolana is a historic residence with a total surface area of 889 sq.m, built in the 1920s and fully restored in the 1990s.
The building has three floors above ground and a basement floor which hosts a large cellar of around 94 sq.m complete with kitchen, bathroom, technical and utility areas and a pretty wine cellar. From this level there is access to the garage or outdoors to a beautiful, fully furnished barbecue area.
On the ground floor, there is the large living space, with typical venetian mosaic floors throughout, built using traditional methods by local artisans. From the entrance, a passageway leads to the dining room on one side and on the other to a large living room with a grand fireplace in red Verona marble.
Via another passage, this goes through to the period stone staircase that leads to the upper floors and the bright, spacious kitchen, with local marble fireplace.
The raised ground floor benefits both from the main entrance and also from a back door, from the barbecue area.
On the first floor, there is a large passage that leads to the sleeping area, with two master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom (one with a wardrobe), another bedroom with bathroom and with access (via a spiral staircase) to a studio on the upper floor and a room which is used as a walk-in wardrobe.
The bedrooms have solid wood parquet flooring and from the two master bedrooms there is access to two pretty balconies, each 6 sq.m.
On the second and top floor is an attic room with exposed beams which hosts a fully equipped gym and relaxation area/studio.
All the floors apart from the basement have ceilings higher than 4 m and can be reached by an internal lift.
State and finishing
The villa has been meticulously restored, with attention to detail and today it offers a standard of comfort which befits the luxury of the building: lift, insulated fixtures, electrical appliances and plumbing which have been installed with the greatest care.
The inside retains the original architectural features from the period in which the property was built, reinstated during the restoration: some of the frescoed walls and ceilings and luxury stone floors. The contemporary touch comes from the bathrooms, in mosaic and stone, with suspended sinks and, in the master bedroom, with a hydromassage tub.
The property benefits from high energy efficiency, indoor and outdoor alarms, and an irrigation system.
The villa is situated right in the middle of its own grounds, of 3.500 sq.m, with access to the driveway via a grand gate.
The tall trees that surround the house provide privacy and the opportunity to enjoy the grounds in the summer, with the barbecue area sure to be a key feature of al-fresco dinners with family and friends.
Finally, there is a small wooden building which is used for a storeroom and a large underground garage (around 217 sq.m) with space for 8-10 cars, which is accessed by a ramp at the back of the property and connects to the cellar by an internal corridor.
Use and potential uses
Villa Isolana is the perfect residence for those searching for a large, impressive home, which would also be an ideal location for events and special occasion in a secluded location within an urban setting.
