The Property, perfectly placed within the archaeological park of Ancient Appia, about 300 meters from the tomb of Cecilia Metella and only 10 minutes from the Colosseum, articulated in two distinct bodies. Both mansions are set within a beautiful park with centuries-old plants equipped with a swimming pool, garage and service apartments. The main dwelling and part of the park rest on an ancient basalt quarry, used in Roman times to obtain the material for the road pavement, this quarry has created a striking difference in altitude that consists of a valley along with the lower portion of the garden, of more than one hectare, which has the entrance to The Way of the Metelli. The main villa is spread over about 680 square meters arranged on two levels.
At the level of the garden there is an entrance consisting of a Roman concrete vault and a very impressive mosaic floor made with original ancient Roman tiles on classic floral design. From another entrance to the oval room you pass into the main hall, consisting of three rooms of different sizes, which ends in an ancient Roman vaulted tuff room with the mosaic floor: the room, which today constitutes the dining room equipped with a mosaic of the Roman era depicting the great Macedonian leader, whose intense gaze refers to the strong personality and strong vitality of Alexander the Great handed down to us by Lisippo (official court portraitist) to whom the mosaic is freely inspired.
From this room, which also communicates with the kitchen, starts a staircase that walks in an ancient form of Roman concrete and leads to the balconies of the first floor, paved with black and white mosaics. Through the main staircase or a comfortable elevator you get to the upper floor where there is a library and the sleeping area of the house, consisting of 4 bedrooms with relative bathrooms and dressing area.
The master bedroom has direct access to the terrace overlooking the garden. The first floor is completed by a beautiful 1950s winter garden. Two pedestrian entrances and two large driveway entrances are inserted into the wall of the villa.
