Head villa with arcs
It is one of the most prestigious and characteristic villas of the Borgo, with characteristics that make them unique both from an aesthetic and historical / architectural point of view. The conformation of the turret with the wide arched openings recalls the shape of the Church of San Bernardo and blends harmoniously with the twin villa to represent the entrance into the central avenue of the Borgo. The particular square shape with round arches, the position along the avenue and the distance from the other buildings, make this villa identifiable from afar and unique. Internally, the wide openings, the double-height ceiling of the room and the exposure on all 4 sides convey a special atmosphere.
Traveling along the road between the rice fields from Pieve Emanuele towards Basiglio, Il Borgo Vione appears from afar offering the view of an ancient medieval entrance door (door Alba – where the sun rises) surrounded by two characteristic towers that rise above two historical buildings. The two towers, which historically represented protective and guard fortifications along the historic passing road, are a unique architectural feature in the entire village, rising above all the buildings.
Combined with the two towers, entering the village in Viale Alba Tramonto, there are then two characteristic arched turrets. An ancient gate that joined the two turrets in fact delimited the space of the two outermost courtyards from the internal space.
The villa occupies the south turret and retains the characteristics of uniqueness and historicity. From a typological point of view, it should be compared, as mentioned, with the twin (first house sold in the renovated village), of which it represents the historical architectural complement to outline a passage / entrance between one courtyard and another along the central sunrise / sunset avenue.
The large arched windows of the full-height room recall the architecture of the past and allow a particular exposure on all 4 sides.
It is therefore an element of absolute value for its uniqueness, position and historical significance.
The villa is spread over two floors, and is surrounded on three sides by a private garden of about 166 square meters which allows full use during the day because there is always a part of it in the sun.
On the ground floor there are 4 different environments. The kitchen with the French window overlooking the garden to the south-west, the double-height living room and living room, a large bathroom in Carrara marble, and a first bedroom with independent entrance.
Upstairs there are two large double bedrooms, one with a walk-in closet and a marble bathroom. In the room above the hall, characterized by the window with a view towards the Church of San Bernardo, it is possible to open an opening onto the hall space below.The villa is offered for direct sale by the property.
