The Location

Nestled in the unspoiled countryside, Yes Luxury Homes proudly presents this exclusive sale of a patrician villa, commissioned in the early 19th century by a renowned aristocratic family in Ferrara. Conveniently positioned between Bologna, Ferrara, and Ravenna, the estate is an oasis of tranquility, surrounded by a sprawling five-hectare park adorned with magnificent oak, pine, elm, and maple trees, adding a vibrant green touch to the city’s backdrop.

The Property

This stately mansion, boasting 2000 sqm of grandeur, stands as a singular central structure. The ground floor (500 sqm) hosts opulent reception halls, leading to the first floor (500 sqm) with elegantly appointed rooms and amenities. Ascend to the second floor, where a vast attic space (500 sqm) awaits, and discover a basement (500 sqm) housing essential service areas. All levels are seamlessly connected by a grand staircase. Outside, approximately 50 meters from the main structure, lies an icehouse, a relic from the 1800s, perfect for conversion into a charming lounge bar.

Patrician villa built in the early nineteenth century, commissioned by a well-known aristocratic family from the Ferrara area.
The villa is located in the uncontaminated countryside, well connected to the main road arteries between Bologna, Ferrara and Ravenna.
The residence is surrounded by a centuries-old park of FIVE hectares within which you can admire its magnificent plants of oaks, pines, elms, maples, which constitute a characteristic green note within the city”.

Outside the villa, about 50 meters from the central body, there is an icebox used (in 1800) to store food and which could be used as a splendid lounge bar.
The Villa estate is accessed via a large driveway, with an iron gate, set back from the provincial road.

In 2007, building renovation works were carried out with total reconstruction of the roof and restoration of facades and fixtures WHILE the property will have to undergo a total internal renovation; renovation simplified by the fact that the villa is NOT bound by the superintendence of fine arts.

Alternative uses of the villa also by virtue of its proximity to various cities of art and various seaside locations: – Boutique Hotel (the construction of approximately 30 rooms). – Spa and wellness centre. – Creation of catering for events. – Representative residence – RSA.
