LUXURY FORMER CONVENT WITH ORIGINAL ROMAN MOSAIC FOR SALE IN UMBRIA


In Umbria, in Città di Castello, luxury villa with guesthouse, annex and pool (16 × 9 m). The property, which is in excellent condition and stands out for its elegance and refinement, has ten bedrooms and nine bathrooms and features a 2nd-century Roman mosaic floor. The villa was originally a 17th-century convent and was restored in the 1980s by the Japanese architect Kazuhide Takahama. Roughly 2.0 ha of land hosts a wonderful park with prestigious plants.

The villa is only 2 km from the historic center of Città di Castello and within easy reach of wonderful towns of art such as Arezzo (42km), Gubbio (49km), Cortona (53km) and Perugia (54km).


DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS


The villa (960 sqm – 10,330 sqft) was originally a small convent, built in the 17th century over the ruins of a Roman villa. Inside the building, one can find a beautiful black-and-white mosaic that has been dated to the 1st and 2nd century AD (the surface is a trapezoid measuring 6 × 3.6 × 5.6 × 3.1 m). In ancient times, this mosaic probably paved a whole room inside the villa.

It is important to note that, not far from the property, roman ruins were uncovered in the late 18th century and several scholars (Authority for Conservation of the Archaeological Heritage) also suggested that Pliny’s villa was located around here.

However, in the 1980s the villa underwent a total renovation which was carried out under the supervision of the Japanese architect Kazuhide Takahama (1930 – 2010): the designer took care of reworking the garden, by adding his personal touch, and several of the elements visible in the house were specifically designed by Takahama.
