Description of buildings
This villa was built in the early 1800s and was renovated and expanded in 1858. The noble part features a Venetian and Palladian façade, whereas the central body is embellished with two overlapping three-light windows and the majestic pediment.
This building has a net saleable area of about 825 sq.m developed over three floors, besides the veranda and the portico (125 sq.m).
The ground floor includes the living areas with a fireplace, a study, a bedroom, a wardrobe room and two bathrooms.
The right wing includes a portico and a veranda, which connect with an additional living room with a fireplace, two bathrooms and a technical room.
A stone and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor. Here, you’ll find a large living room with doors and windows overlooking the garden, in perfect Veneto noble residence style. There is also the master bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom, two double bedrooms, one of which with a walk-in wardrobe, a wardrobe room (which can be turned into a bedroom) that gives access to another bathroom, and an additional bathroom.
The second floor, which was the old attic, features a more rustic atmosphere with its terracotta floors and exposed beams. This floor can be turned into an independent apartment, as it includes a large living room, a kitchen with a fireplace, two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, and an additional bathroom/laundry room.
The indicated surface is the net saleable area.
The net saleable area is equal to the walkable area (including the internal partitions) increased by 10% due to the incidence of the load-bearing walls.
The surface occupied by the staircase is calculated once.
State and finishing
San Biagio Villa was built in the early 1800s. It has been renovated over the years, but it requires interior finishes.
The elegant terrazzo flooring, typical of this geographic area, has been laid after the installation of the underfloor heating and cooling system. It perfectly matches the coffered ceilings, which have also been renovated.
All the rooms are enriched with fine materials, such as local stone, handcrafted terracotta and wrought iron. However, they need to be refined with the final details, for which an analytical estimation is available.
The exteriors, including masonry and fixtures, are in perfect conditions. The façade with its pediment and coat of arm makes quite an impression.
The about 20,000 sq.m private park develops along the Po river and features a carefully tended lawn embellished with tall trees.
The whole property is fenced.
Use and potential uses
San Biagio Villa is a versatile and charming property that can be used as a prestigious residence or an accommodation facility. The latest renovation was made in view of establishing a country resort business. Still, it can be easily turned into a private residence with independent areas where you can host family and friends.
