This stunning Italian property sits perched on a cliff on Capri, and boasts spectacular terraces overlooking the sea and Punta Massullo. Inside the interiors reflect the architect’s experience as a ship designer, with a highly rational use of space and proportion, masterfully combined with a keen eye for exploiting the views commanded from this exceptional vantage point.

Accommodation comprises a sitting room, kitchen and two bedrooms.

The garden has also been particularly designed around the house, and it makes the most of the extraordinary views through a succession of terraces.

Overlooking the entire island on the one side and the Italian mainland on the other, La Falconetta and its grounds are astonishingly private and secluded, making this truly one of the remnants of a bygone era of Italian glamour.

The guide price is £2,352,480. For further information please contact Savills on 020 7016 3740 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
