A Dream Home On Gianicolo Hill In Rome, Italy
The famous Seven Hills of Rome helped to create the marvelous Italian city. As the story goes, each of the hills that surrounded the area we now call Rome had its own settlement of people. As time went on, the people began to interact between the hills. And Rome was born. But to the west of these hills lies Gianicolo Hill, informally known as the 8th Hill of Rome. West of the Tiber River, Gianicolo Hill offers awe-inspiring panoramic views of the ancient city. At its apex, visitors find parks, monuments, historic buildings as well as some of the most expensive real estate in Rome. And it is in this prestigious area that we find this exquisite dream home.
This stately, four story dream home has a place of privilege atop Gianicolo Hill. Carefully designed gardens and spacious terraces create a private oasis surrounding the mansion. Small fruit trees and manicured hedges encircle elegant sitting areas. Meanwhile, mature trees soar above the pristine landscape.
And ensconced within this magnificent luxury villa, homeowners will find a grand staircase that serves as a focal point of the dream home and connects the four levels. The first floor common areas include spacious living and sitting rooms, a modern kitchen, and a dining room that connects to one of the many terraces providing an invitation for outdoor dining.
The upper floors of this 20,900 square foot mansion house eight bedrooms and fourteen bathrooms as well as studies, a private spa and salon, a gym, and service areas. Intricate wood and tile mosaic floors combine with high, ornate ceilings and built-in bookshelves for a dramatic effect. And in addition to the multitude of oversized windows, stained glass windows add a period touch to some rooms.
But perhaps the most impressive feature of this luxury villa is the rooftop terrace. This spacious, private area has a shaded garden, an elegant pergola, and a jacuzzi. Also, it offers a spectacular and unsurpassed view of the ancient city of Rome.
Additionally, this beautiful dream home sits on Via Calandrelli which runs along the picturesque Villa Sciarra Park. An often visited site for travelers, Villa Sciarra Park has myriad fountains and statues, lush vegetation, and delightful peaceful nooks perfect for relaxing.
This luxury real estate is part of the Trastevere neighborhood on the Tiber River. Nestled west of Rome and south of Vatican City, Trastevere has an authentic Italian feel that seamlessly fuses with a youthful and vibrant energy. While the area is part of Rome, the geographic boundary of the river removes Trastevere from the busyness of the city. Instead of battling the hustle and bustle found in other areas of Rome, meander through the cobblestone streets filled with charming boutiques and delectable trattorias. Visit one of Trastevere’s exquisite museums. Or gather with the other locals in the large piazzas.
And while this exclusive neighborhood is off the beaten path, residents can be in the city within a matter of minutes. EUR (Esposizione Universale Roma), Rome’s financial district, is just a 10 minute drive from Trastevere. Many of Rome’s most significant tourist attractions are only 15 minutes away. Or if you’d rather relax seaside, Trastevere is only 30 minutes from the spectacular beaches on the Mediterranean Sea.
Whether you are looking to Italy to relocate or just seeking the perfect luxury vacation property, look no further than this exquisite Italian dream home in the hills of Rome.
