Italy / Tuscany / Arezzo / Anghiari
Anghiari: this small medieval village dating back to before 1000 is set in Valtiberina, west side. This marvellous place is home of an interesting property made up of two buildings (an historic villa dating back to early 900 and another villa built in the 60’s) set in an area of approx. sqm13000. The property is located in the highest part of the village of Anghiari, which makes it the perfect place to stay. Building: The historic villa was built in the early 1900 by Federico Verrell, a British-born citizen who was fascinated by the place. The architecture is refined with “liberty” elements, stonework alternating plastered parts. The main body, which is based upon 4 floors, is wisely lightened by two smaller bodies set on the sides. The openings are well balanced in their size and in their position, in particular the main facade, with its staircase conveys an austere and appealing appearance. Very interesting is the insertion of some brick parts that go well with stone elements. The interior of the villa is very simple and the original setting was not distorted. Two Majestic stairs, one made of wood which connects the first and the mezzanine floor, the other is a spiral stairs made of stone and goes from the entrance to the attic floor. The condition is good, the restoration done in the years was of maintenance and did not make changes or distorted the salient features of the building. This property conveys a sense of preservation, the fireplaces, the original cotto floors, the wood stairs, the spiral stone stairs, the small walls, the parkland…everything seems to be protected by a sheen of age. The surrounding parkland is up to the context with its plants, cleaning and tidiness. The second building was built in the mid-60 as private residence. It is made up of two units connected by a staircase. The finishes on the ground floor are of medium-high level with ceramic floors and parquet, big windows overlooking the terraces with their wrought iron railings. The first floor maintained its residential use. Everything is in good condition and well maintained tank to the conservative works done. All this adds up to a tennis court and related services which need deep maintenance works.
