Villa ‘Il Gelso’
Located at the top of the hill and surrounded by green land, on the foundations of an old farmhouse; the building, a regular rectangular block in shape, is built on two floors with a portico area on the smaller side, which is accessed from the adjacent parking lot belonging to the property. A stunning sea view can be enjoyed from the portico area, the space in front of the villa and all the openings on the front of the house, while the other side of the house looks over Monte Serra.
The ground floor includes a large living room - dining room - kitchenette, staircase and a bedroom which can also be used as a study or play area. A metallic-painted architectural feature creates a double-volume space where the staircase has been inserted. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The wide open spaces are a nice extension of the living room and are floored to match the portico area, “landscaped in green“ with lawns, aromatic shrubs and flowering vines.
The finishing of the exterior walls is in lime plaster; the window frames, complete with doors, are made of painted aluminium to ensure durability and reduced maintenance. The columns of the porch are clad in local stone. The living area, the rooms and the bathrooms are paved with porcelain tiles; the staircase is marble-floored. The colours and materials aim at creating a relaxing and translucent environment, which communicates with nature’s light and with the sea behind the villa.
