Description

Immersed in greenery, not far from the Baroque town of Scicli, is a villa with the charm of the medieval era, a time when it was a Saracen fortified tower. The memory of these origins is still preserved in its name, Antica Torre (meaning ancient tower), a charming residence in which rustic style is combined with modern design elements, surrounded by a beautiful garden with a private pool. Stone, the dominant material on the outside, is also present in the interior, together with other materials such as wood and ceramics, skilfully used to create a cosy ambience. A plunge into an atmosphere of yesteryear without forgoing the comfort of modernity.

Inside

Accommodation is spread over three floors, two of which offer both a living area and a sleeping area with modernly furnished rooms.
On the ground floor, a cosy open space with a dining table and living area overlooks the outside of the house through two French windows that give access to the characteristic stone courtyard. The dining area is directly connected to the kitchen, which has a modern design and is fully equipped, illuminated by large windows overlooking the courtyard that can be accessed through a convenient French door. The bathroom serving this area has been created with great attention to detail, as denoted by the choice of a beautiful stone wall that recalls the exterior of the house, in which the tile detail with the washbasin and mirror is inserted.
On the same floor is a modern double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and another double bedroom in a loft area with a glass parapet and exposed wooden beams, also with an en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor, the spacious living area has French windows facing two sides of the house and is furnished with a dining table and a comfortable living area with a fireplace served by a separate bathroom. The dining area also leads to the well-equipped kitchen. On this floor, the sleeping area offers a double bedroom with a small balcony and en-suite bathroom, while on the second floor there are two further double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and exposed wooden beams, one of which is very spacious with access to a beautiful terrace and the other with a small balcony overlooking the pool.

Outside

The visually striking exterior of the villa is characterised by the use of stone on the façade, in the paving of the spacious courtyard and in the fence wall. On the ground floor, the two large windows of the kitchen overlook a side of the courtyard where the stone paving ends where a beautiful green lawn begins. The two French windows of the living area, on the other hand, give access to two typically arched loggias corresponding to two outdoor conversation areas, sheltered from the hot Sicilian sun and overlooking the large stone courtyard. A fine wall delimits this area and through a passageway connects it to the pool area overlooking the garden, a true oasis of tranquillity with a solarium, an outdoor shower and a large patio with tables and chairs for relaxing in the shade. The pool is surrounded almost entirely by a comfortable wooden floor that gives way to a beautiful lawn and plants in the well-kept garden.
On the first floor is a beautiful terrace overlooking the courtyard and partly sheltered by a canopy, ideal for al fresco dining or relaxing in the conversation corner.
On the second floor, a further very spacious terrace offers a magnificent view of the surrounding area that reaches as far as the sea. The ideal place to be enchanted by unforgettable sunsets!
