Mussolente, Vicenza, Veneto, Italy
A unique Venetian villa situated on a raised embankment with impressive 360-degree views over the surrounding countryside and Alps is on the market in Northern Italy for an undisclosed amount. The villa was built for the Bassano’s nobleman Antonio Negri Miazzi who commissioned Architect Antonio Gaidon (1738-1829). The villa was completed in 1763. The facade, crowned by a triangular pediment surmounted by statues, enhances the iconographic aspect of the property. The villa faces southwards and has a strikingly lavish entrance. The 18,836 square foot villa consists of a main building that spreads over three floors and has two lower wings, plus two towers on each side. It features a large and elegant reception hall, a library and other reception and entertaining areas which are all beautifully decorated with stucco.
The 42 acre park that surrounds the villa is outstanding for its one of a kind elegant outside stairs that give the entire property a stately and majestic feeling. The two outbuildings on each side of the main villa create the perception of 2 adjacent “towers” while two independent guesthouses at the back of the grounds serve as a caretaker’s house and a laundry facility. The property also includes a small unconsecrated chapel, which could easily be transformed into a media room. All amenities such as supermarkets, pharmacies and small local stores are at walking distance. This is the ideal venue to discover some of Italy’s most beautiful cities. The villa is on the market with Diletta Giorgolo S. of Italy Sotheby’s International Realty.
