This splendid villa situated in the countryside outside Rome takes its name (pozzo antico = old well) from an old well still present in the property and visible in the veranda on the ground floor. The villa, which was completely renovated around 2005, alternates characteristics typical of country farmhouses such as terracotta floors, open-face beams and parquet in the sleeping area, with more modern structural features such as resin floors in the living area. Its position allows guests to relax completely in the beautiful garden or under the large portico overlooking the surrounding countryside. Pozzo Antico, furthermore, is a property suitable for those wishing to visit the major cultural cities of central Italy, above all Rome, the Eternal City, which is easily reached with public transport.
The villa has two floors connected by an internal staircase. The main entrance, under the portico on the side of the parking space, leads directly to the large living area on the ground floor. This room is subdivided in four areas: study, relaxation corner with fireplace, TV area and dining room. From the living area you can go directly to the portico through two French windows. Down two steps from the dining area you come to the kitchen and the veranda with large windows where the well is situated and with a table ideal for meals. The veranda, too, has access to the outside. To the right of the living area are two double bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom with shower. A corridor adjacent to these two rooms leads to a twin bedroom with access to the garden and a further bathroom with shower. In front of the dining area is a terracotta staircase which goes up to the first floor. This floor is composed of two double bedrooms (one with a 1,40 m width bed), a bathroom with tub and a panoramic terrace furnished with deckchair and table. Air conditioning in the bedrooms and living area.
The property extends for four hectares. The garden surrounding the house is 3000 square metres. The main part is covered by lawn with olive trees, palms, aromatic plants, fruit trees, limes, medlars, eucalyptus and paulownia. The rest of the property is woodland with oaks and holm oaks. In the garden is a gazebo furnished with table and chairs and next to the kitchen is a brickwork barbecue and a wood fired oven. The large portico which extends around two sides of the house is furnished with tables, chairs and divans.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
The pool, on the same level as the house, is situated about 15 metres from it. The shape is two rectangles connected to each other for a total dimension of 15 x 6 m. The maximum depth is 2.50 m while the minimum is on the same level as the ground as a sloping ramp leads down into the water. The inner lining is in white PVC and it has chlorine purification. The solarium area is paved in sand coloured cement and is provided with sun umbrellas and sunbeds. The pool has an outdoor hot-water shower and is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October. Near the solarium area is a characteristic gazebo provided with divans, smoking table and ceiling fan.
