New to the market is this beautifully restored early 20th Century Italian-style villa in Vermont, USA.

Built in 1916, this elegant property was designed by architects Wilder & White of New York for the opera singer Stella Brazzi and her husband Edmund Pratt, which explains the clear Italian influence.

Over the last three years both the five bedroom, four reception room house and the surrounding 15 acres of parkland and gardens have been carefully renovated, and the many original features, such as the carved fireplace in the living room, are now complemented by spectacular elements of modern interior design.

While remaining faithful to the original design, the renovation included various technological flourishes, such as high speed internet connection and a state-of-the-art security system.

As well as a sauna and a swimming pool, the villa boasts a splendid ?orangerie?, which overlooks the gardens and woods. The outbuildings include a heated green house, a carriage house and a five-car garage.

The villa is situated close to Northampton and Mount Snow, in an area that is home to various authors, musicians and artists. Manhattan is just over three hours away by car, or around 30 minutes by jet.
