This villa, the result of a total renovation of an ancient farmhouse, is well situated near the popular town of Santa Margherita Ligure (Fraz. San Lorenzo della Costa) with a spectacular view of the Ligurian sea in an extremely peaceful and natural context.
The project was for the creation of three villas, two of which have already been completed and sold.
The property is spread over three floors and has been divided into two units, each with its own private entrance. The composition is as follows: a large living area and a bathroom on the ground floor, two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor.
Landscaped gardens of approximately 3.000 sq m surround the villa and there is a 5×10 m swimming pool with a splendid panoramic view.
Included is a garage for two cars and four parking spaces.
At present the property is divided into two separate units but could easily be converted into a single large dwelling if desired providing a spacious living area, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and of course the garden with swimming pool.
Completion work will be carried out to the specifications and requirements of the buyer with customisation of the internal features and finishes (floors, walls, windows, etc.) and of the thermical, hydraulic, electrical (domotic) systems and more.
Along with Portofino, Santa Margherita is the crown jewel of Italian Riviera.
It has always been the destination of Italian and international celebrities: Rod Steward, Penny Lancaster, Wayne Rooney, Sabrina Ferilli, Enrico Montesano and many others have picked it as vacation spot.
By the sea, it has an efficient touristic port, with a valuable and dynamic waterfront, enhanced by palm trees.
The residential area is surrounded by the sea and hills covered in Mediterranean vegetation (maritime pines, chestnut trees, olive groves) where it is easy to find gardens and villas with the sea view over the so-called “Dolphin Gulf”, that connects Santa Margherita Ligure with Portofino.
Its crystal-clear waters, awarded with the European Blue Flag, attract tourists not just for sea bathing, but also for its particular seabed habitat composed by Posidonia Oceanica meadows, coral reefs and sea caves, which are homes of several fish species.
The historical center is full of history and art, appreciated for evening walks, and hosts the finest restaurants and the most exclusive boutiques.
Along the coast it is easy to run into spectacular villas, here from the ancient times: “Convento della Cervara” from 1300, “Villa Durazzo” from 1600 and many other private exclusive houses, built centuries ago (many of them are liberty) or in the present days.
Their formal gardens benefit from a unique micro-climate and host pines, holm oak, arbutus, wildflowers and several other plant species.
The typical cuisine is renowned for prawns and white wine, both delicious. Thanks to its lucky position, as the one of all Riviera, it is possible to reach Montecarlo in just two hours and half, or the renowned ski resorts Courmayeur and Chamonix in three hours, and the Versilia coast with its famous clubs in just one hour. Chiavari is just half an hour far from Genoa Airport.
