The Monte Argentario is one of Italy’s most unspoiled, beautiful and exclusive residential areas.
It forms a peninsula rich in History, Flora and Fauna and it is since the early 1980th fully protected against any kind of further construction.
Only a limited number of large seaside Villas exist. They were built in the early seventies, most of them surrounded with land, exceeding two and a half Acres. (9.000 sqm/ 9 dunam)
The owner of the property has built the Villa 32 years ago and maintained it in excellent condition. The Villa is located at “Le Cannelle” and is most likely the largest home in the area.
It is facing South with a direct waterfront and sea access. The Area is gated, and the immediate access roads are private, some are unpaved due to the area having been declared a Nature Reserve.
A permit has now been granted to pave the direct access road. There are numerous castles and watch towers seaming the Peninsula dating back to the 14th century.
There are three historic small towns Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano and Orbetello, all reachable within 15 and 20 minutes respectively, with excellent shopping and Restaurants.
There are several Yacht harbours within easy reach. The countryside nearby is called “La Maremma” and offers not only excellent food and wine, but historic sites too.
A professional Golf Course and the adjoining international Polo Club ground are reachable within 20 minutes.
There are excellent train connections from Orbetello. The private local airport in Grosseto , the provincial capital, is 45 minutes away.
The Villa, and the other few Villas in the area called “Le Cannelle” are supplied with fresh water from various springs and form a condominium for general maintenance.
The immediate neighbour of the Villa is a beautiful 16th century tower/fort containing a small residence.
The static of the Villa was done by one of Italy’s most prominent building engineers, Professor Meardi of the Milan University. The House is built on base rock and the entire sea front side has been secured with 56 reinforced concrete pilings reaching 30 meters down to sea level. The Tuscan style architecture was conceived by the Florentine Architect Canepari and its finishes reflect the stone, the tiles, the wood and colours of the region.
The main house exceeds 315 square meters in living space. Its construction, and partially covered terraces, exceed 300 sqm. The house consists of one master bedroom suite, and three guest room suites all with private bathroom. The house has an excellent central oil heating system and the master bedroom has air-conditioning.
There is an extra guest bathroom and a service bathroom. Below the main terrace of the house are two additional apartments totalling about 170 square meters, all with sea view.
Apartment A: features a Pirate Bar in the basement. These apartments are fully equipped with kitchens and bathrooms and have stone covered terraces in front. All rooms are facing the sea. The master bedroom is air-conditioned.
The technical installation for additional air-condition/heating and telephone connections are in place.
The comfortable beach shower room has a washing machine for guest use and space for beach equipment storage.
The main house has a 220 sqm parking area with sun-shading. An elevator leads from the parking area 13 meter down to the Villa followed by some steps to the apartments below.
The two separate apartments can also be reached by a descending paved road with parking in front of the apartments.
There is a large condominium pool within walking distance, for which membership can be purchased.
An attractive restaurant overlooking the pool is open between June 15th and September 15th. As the owner prefers the sea for swimming, he has not built a swimming pool, swimming pool permits are extremely difficult to obtain.
There are stairs down to the sea. An area in front of the Guests apartment terrace has been statically prepared for a pool in case of requirement and a permit. This is a unique landmark property which can never be matched. The house and the apartments are furnished and equipped with the basics.( antiques, works of art and movable inventory are excluded in case of sale).
Over five hundred trees and thousands of Mediterranean plants cover the property
The basic installations of the Villa and apartments include: 6 bedrooms, 3 kitchens, 9 bathrooms, cupboards, other miscellaneous spaces, washing machines and refrigerators area.
