This wonderfully located property is one of the most important houses in the gated residence, Le Cannelle, in one of the most exclusive areas of the natural park on the coast of the Monte Argentario. This area has been protected from any form of further construction since 1980 and only a limited number of beachfront villas were built during the 1970s, including this one.
This is one of the largest villas in the area with land around it leading down to the sea. The property benefits from open sea views towards the small island of Giannutri and the larger island of Giglio to the north.
In the nearby surroundings, there are numerous fortresses and ancient towers and three historic fishing villages: Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano and Orbetello, while the marina, tennis and golf clubs are within easy reach. The nearby Maremma area offers excellent food and wines as well as several Etruscan sites. The international airport of Rome Fiumicino can be reached in less than two hours, while Siena and Florence are a 1.5 hr and 2.5 hr drive respectively. There is a railway station at Orbetello with good connections. Grosseto airport can accommodate private planes and is only 45 minutes away by car.
Facing south west, this panoramic villa is set over 5 levels and is currently divided into three independent units that can be joined together to become one main property if required. All the main rooms have a sea view.
Main apartment ( ca.300 sqm), consists of entrance hall, a large, light and airy living room with an arched window with a magnificent sea view, a lower dining area with door to a protected dining terrace, a study, a WC and a kitchen.
Stairs from the living room lead up to the second level where there is a further entrance door from the lift level, a master suite with bedroom and door to a wonderful terrace, dressing room and bathroom. Stairs down from the dining area, lead to six rooms and three bathrooms; some rooms used as bedrooms and others as studies/playrooms and a kitchen area. From this level, the bedrooms have access to a spectacular terrace (ca. 300 sqm) over-looking the sea with a covered pergola area.
The main house has a large, covered parking area for several cars and there is a lift built in the style of an ancient tower leading directly down to the entrance of the villa.
There are two adjacent apartments with independent driveway and entrances, on a lower ground floor, below the large terrace. These apartments of about 170 sqm, are arranged on two levels. Apt.1 (70 sqm) has a bathroom and 2 rooms, Apt.2 (100 sqm) has 2 bathrooms, 3 rooms, kitchen and living room and each has lower rooms which can be further accommodation.
An adjacent room with WC and shower is used as a changing room and for storing beach equipment.
Terraced space adjacent to the one of the apartments could accommodate a private pool for which preliminary plans have been drawn.
These apartments can be reached from a secondary access road with parking spaces nearby. The surrounding garden area is terraced and the property has private access to the sea and to two stony bays below. The property is supplied with fresh water from the Cannelle springs and the aqueduct is in a condominium arrangement. A large communal swimming pool is available for use with membership.
The house is built on rock at the base of the mountain and the entire seafront side has been consolidated. The property has good security and privacy provided by the electric gates. The adventurous, scenic roads winding through the natural park overlook the sea and follow the coastline from Porto Santo Stefano on the famous ‘panoramica’ road or alternatively cut through over the mountain and wind their way down to the property on the western-most side.
All systems require renovation (wiring, electricity and central heating) and the property requires modernisation
