“Besides, I would listen to the sea endlessly. Full blast.”
We are in San Vincenzo in the heart of the Etruscan Coast. The golden beaches, a cobalt sea a stone’s throw away a property large enough to allow two families to live close together, but thanks to the layout and subdivision of the spaces it allows you to do so completely independently.
It allows you to enjoy all together the large garden with the lawn, the swimming pool, the French-style gazebo or all the exceptional features of this villa, ideal for spending wonderful moments between a pool party and a grill under the stars. But, thanks to the spaces designed personally by the landlord, it allows privacy, freedom and separate management of the two units to be maintained, so much so that the second home, if not occupied by one’s family, could also be used as income.
The main villa
The independent entrance (pedestrian and car) on the road leads to a large external courtyard, where you can leave your car, and to the driveway which, with a few steps, leads to the front door. You enter the open space living area, divided into two areas: on the right, the equipped and custom-built kitchen in stone and wood, with a travertine sink and a wood-burning ceramic stove that recreates the atmosphere of typical Tuscan farmhouses.
Immediately next to it is a dining room where even 6 people can have lunch in peace, enjoying the light that comes from the large porch overlooking the coast, which is also equipped for outdoor dining, to be exploited from spring to late autumn.
Next to the kitchen, a large living room with parquet floor, with relaxation area with sofas and TV.
Here there is also a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower and window.
Going up to the first floor via the internal staircase, there is a bedroom with a balcony from which you can enjoy a suggestive sea view and a bathroom with blue mosaic flooring, a second double bedroom with walk-in closet, private bathroom and balcony pocket.
Going down the stairs to the basement you reach the tavern: a party room with a billiard table and a lounge area with armchairs and sofas where you can spend time listening to music or tasting a wine, a bathroom with stone-walled shower, a fully equipped gym, a laundry room and a double garage.
A house with the possibility of these spaces inside is really rare in San Vincenzo, but the strong point of the villa is what is outside: the stone swimming pool with undulating profiles, at the edge of which there is a small lounge where you can spend fantastic afternoons summer, the glass and wrought iron gazebo, perfect in summer for an aperitif or dinner and, out of season, as a winter garden for reading or having lunch on sunny January days and the porch where you can spend many moments in the fresh air.
The second home
With independent access, for people and cars, the house reproduces the structure of the manor house on a smaller scale: the small door leads to the living area consisting of a dining room, a small separate kitchenette, and a living room which overlooks the porch opening onto the private garden. The internal staircase leads both to the upper floor where there is a bedroom and a bathroom, and to the basement which houses a small tavern with a lounge area and a double garage.
From the garden, fenced for maximum privacy and the safety of puppies or small children, you can access the swimming pool and the garden of the villa through a small gate.
