Villa Venere is located in Mondello, the renowned seaside resort of the city of Palermo with its beautiful 4-km-long beach and the pristine Capo Gallo nature reserve.
It is at the bottom of Monte Pellegrino, the famous promontory from Goethe’s travels and a destination for Christian pilgrims and tourists who walk annually to the top of the mountain to visit the “Santuzza”: a sanctuary carved in the cave of Santa Rosalia. The patron saint of the Sicilian capital miraculously defeated the plague 400 years ago.
The villa is also located a short distance from “La Favorita” park, Palermo’s “Central Park”, where you can go mountain biking, running, and trekking or for a Sunday afternoon picnic.
Via Venere is a strategic area connected to Viale dell’Olimpo, from which the freeway can be easily accessed, and only 15-20 minutes by car or from the railway station of Tommaso Natale (about 3 km westward, reachable in 5 minutes by car) from where the Falcone-Borsellino international airport of Punta Raisi can be reached.
The villa has four entrances: two of them are within the private association of prestigious villas to which it belongs. Protected by a double automatic security gate, a 24-hour KSM surveillance personnel guarantees, via the remote control supplied to the owners, armed intervention in a few minutes in case of danger. The second and third entrances are independent, directly from Via Venere.
Further security is provided by a home automation system integrated with the alarm and video surveillance controlled via a touch screen unit.
A large and suggestive infinity pool (17.20 m by 7.80 m) can be admired among the lush greenery and the well-kept lawn. Adjacent to it a large porch covered by wooden trusses embraces it on two sides. Changing rooms and guest toilets, in a SPA-like setting, complete the pool area. A nearby room of about 30 square meters used as a tool shed, in perfect condition, would lend itself to becoming a large summer kitchen serving the outdoors.
The ground floor, with four entrances, is made up of a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet and a large window overlooking the splendid, spacious garden with a green lawn and trees of various species up to 20 meters in height.
A large living room on the ground floor with an adjoining guest toilet connects to the exteriors, the adjacent kitchen with a utility closet, the main bedroom, and, via a comfortable L-shaped staircase, leads downstairs.
The downstairs living space gets plenty of fresh air and light on two sides from a large external courtyard overlooked by the bedrooms. It consists of a large living room, two bedrooms, four toilets, a hallway, and a laundry room. From the external courtyard, the main garden can be reached via two flights of external stairs.
A double underground space that can be traveled on foot, about 70 meters long, detaches the whole villa from the embankment, thus avoiding the possibility of humidity on the floor below.
In conclusion, a unique advantage for investors is that the 2565 square meter lot could allow the construction of an additional building of 893 cubic meters.
