The Oscar winning film “Call Me by Your Name” was filmed in this elegant historical villa for sale in Lombardy, Italy. The landmark 16th century property was once home to Italian aristocracy. It includes a five-acre park and two outbuildings.
The original square portion of the villa has a front portico with two towers at the corners. More recent improvements saw a service wing added. The main façade boasts a portico which provides a terrace on the second floor. A splendid antique entrance door is sculpted with roses in the Italian Renaissance style.
The large entry gallery crosses through the villa, offering a perspective of the park and gardens beyond. The ground floor includes a living room, a library, an office and a billiards room. There are frescoed ceilings, fireplaces, vaulted ceilings and mosaic flooring throughout. A fresco dating from the 1500s is from the school of Raphael.
The second floor has hand carved coffered ceilings. It houses four spacious bedrooms, each with an ensuite bath. There is an additional bathroom on this floor.
The service wing contains a number of rooms in addition to the large modern kitchen. A cellar located in the center of the villa can be accessed via the central stone staircase. An alarm system protects the property. The outbuildings are a farmhouse and a gatehouse.
The villa is in driving distance to Milan and its airport. It is 31 miles to the Milan-Linate International Airport, a 45-minute drive. Central Milan is 34 miles away, a one-hour drive.
This extraordinary property makes a unique vacation home, primary residence or rental investment.
