A RENOVATED NOBLE HUNTING HOUSE WITH ECLECTIC, LUXURIOUS STYLE IN ARGENTARIO, TUSCANY
Originally a farming house dating back to 1800, it has just undergone a major restoration and redecoration by its owner, and it has first been re-inhabited starting from 2012.
A manicured lawn and large garden declining towards the horizon introduce this two-story villa, located minutes from the sea on the South Tuscany coast of Italy. The home design, approached with research in the historical context, results in a new-classic, eclectic style with quality wooden boards and terracotta floors.
Textiles and wall colours lend an upscale, English feel to the interiors. Elements of classic Italian residential architecture, such as interconnecting multiple areas for entertainment on ground floor and bedrooms on first floor, are combined with contemporary elements, like a red-clay tennis court and air-conditioning.
A contemporary influence, however, was the decision to include Asian-sourced furnishing from the owner’s travels, including Chinese precious wardrobes in the master bedroom. Luxurious, yet very comfortable, this is an inspirational retreat full of colour and a welcoming vibe, blending traditional and modern European architecture.
There are 5 metres to reach the house from the parking spot, 2 stairs to enter the property. The house lays on one single level. The swimming pool is accessed through 2 stairs.
The serene surroundings of this property make it a particular fit for guests who love privacy, nature, relaxation, great seafood and a calmer, southern-style way of life. The modern décor is a perfect fit for travellers.
