Property description
Historic Villa in Appia Antica in Rome - Lazio
We are pleased to present this property, unique for the natural beauty and archaeological importance of its location, the history of those who lived and who has been in it.Belonging in the past to the famous cinema producer Carlo Ponti, married to Sophia Loren, the property has also hosted numerous Hollywood stars such as Kirk and Michael Douglas, Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier, during the filming of some American colossal. Situated on the Via Appia Antica (Ancient Appian Way), the famous Roman era archaeological park, about 300 meters from the Tomb of Cecilia Metella, and only 10 minutes from the Colosseum, this property collects and preserves some archaeological findings, unique and now impossible to find.The property is harmoniously inserted inside the Appia Antica Park with its private garden planted with trees and flowers that make it shine in all seasons, enriched by the heated pool. The manor house measures 580 square meters.LOCATION & LIFESTYLEThe Appia Antica Park is like a wedge that, starting from the Castelli Romani creeps into town and brings its bucolic atmosphere almost in the center of Rome, stopping at the ancient Aurelian walls which surrounded Ancient Rome. Without any doubt it is a privileged location, chosen even by the emperors and the Roman aristocracy who built here their villas and palaces. In the 50s and 60s of the twentieth century along the initial stretch of the "regina viarum" there were realized exclusive villas which became the residence of the high society of the capital. The possibility of reaching on one hand the Colosseum and the historical center and Ciampino airport in literally 10 minutes on the other make the location very convenient for any need.Moreover, with due permission a private helicopter can land on the big lawn located within the walls of the property itself. Three entrances on three streets (even from the Appian Way that is the residence address) make it extremely advantaged roads, the same viability that sometimes instead penalizes villas located here.The Appia Antica Park is also protected from the point of view of landscape and urban planning that allows him to preserve the beauty and the unique atmosphere that will never change over time. Roman Empire, so famous for his streets, knew no one more important than the Via Appia Antica. Along its initial stretch that starts from the Porta Capena and the Terme of Caracalla it is dotted by mausoleums, tombs, churches, such as the famous Quo Vadis, remnants of the old villas, impressive mausoleums, towers and tombs, including the famous Christian catacombs. The archaeological and historical wealth gives the important cultural life to its present occupant enriched by natural importance of the place full of courses of all kinds: by bike, on horse, on foot, guided or not.Only five minutes from the property is the Circolo del Golf di Roma Aquasanta and the Capannelle racecourse is only 14 min. away. Castel Gandolfo, famous for the Pope's summer residence, astronomical observatory and the crater lake of rare beauty where you can practice many water sports is only 18 km away, as well as other towns in the beautiful Castelli Romani (Roman Castles).DESCRIPTIONThis villa is on two floors connected by a beautiful staircase and a lift. The main entrance is represented by an atrium with an ancient vault ceiling made of famous Roman concrete with an impressive mosaic on the floor made with genuine cards from Roman times, judging from the classic floral design. An additional entrance on the ground floor is located in an oval room leading to great representative area formed by the sequence of three living rooms of different sizes and an ancient roman room in tuff with vaulted ceilings and mosaic floor, still with the roman original tiles that form a beautiful and sensational depiction of Medusa's head. No doubt, it is a spa
