Once a vineyard with a farmhouse, before being transformed by architect Carlo Busiri Vici into luxurious Villa Dufour around 1900, the property now goes by the name Villa Whitaker, after the English family who previously owned it.

Fast forward to the present day, and the exceptional residence has been totally renovated. Enviably located in Parioli, the sprawling parkland enclosing the estate extends to Via Antonio Gramsci.

Coldwell Banker Commercial, handling the sale of this upscale dwelling, cites Villa Whitaker as one the “most prestigious and well-known properties in the district”.

Luxury Living in the Heart of Parioli

Situated in a sought-after postcode in the north of the city, the eye-catching mustard-hued exterior gives way to over 2,500 square meters of internal space, including capacious lounges and charming bedrooms. Contemporary décor and statement lighting blend effortlessly with characterful features like cornicing, herringbone flooring, and painted ceilings, and a grandiose spiral staircase connects the four levels.

The pièce de résistance? A large indoor pool, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the glorious grounds. When you’re not taking a dip, relax on one of the loungers while admiring the view. And let’s not forget the tower, complete with an intimate sitting room and access to the rooftop terrace, where more of those exceptional vistas can be appreciated.

Away from the bustle of the center (but well-connected), Parioli is relatively quiet yet still has things to do – points of interest include Parco della Musica for concerts and events, and there are plenty of artisanal shops, high-end retailers, and inviting restaurants to explore. Meanwhile, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, MAXXI – National Museum of 21st Century Art, and Villa Borghese, the largest park in Rome, are nearby.

Parioli’s Property Renaissance

Parioli’s local residential market is thriving, having grown impressively over the last five years. Why? The renovation of several buildings that sold on the private market, obtaining a substantial €30,000 per square meter.

For example, historic Largo Monti Parioli was recently refurbished and transformed into a collection of exclusive apartments. Sitting at the peak of a hill, residents enjoy wonderful outlooks across Rome and the lush surrounding grounds.

Additional upmarket projects in Via Sassoferato and Via Carlo Dolci have contributed to the rising quality of the micro-location. The sale and ongoing modernization of the famous Villa Balestra, just a 10-minute walk from Villa Whitaker, also plays a role.
