Villa in Modena – rif. 249

Prestigious and characteristic classic villa, located in Ganaceto di Modena.

This magnificent historic villa of 550 square meters, dating back to 1697, was born as a “country delight” of the Molza counts of Modena, internally characterized by a deco imprint with partial recovery of the existing underlying frescoes.

It is arranged on three levels and is made up of 18 large rooms, 2 bathrooms and balconies from which you can appreciate the 8000 square metres English park with centuries-old plants and essences (acacias, horse chestnuts, oaks, red ash trees, plane trees, lime trees, maples, giant bamboo, fir trees, etc.) and the Italian garden protected by the Superintendency of Fine Arts of Modena with flower beds, parterres, symmetrical geometries and gravel paths, box trees and centuries-old yews.

The villa is in excellent condition, having undergone an almost total renovation in 2013, but the original style of three centuries ago has been preserved, starting with the Venetian wrought and terracotta floors, the columns with Doric style capitals and every other “golden” connotation of the house.

The villa is equipped with mosquito nets on all windows, TV antennas, satellite dish, wi-fi. The larch windows and shutters were handcrafted from scratch between 2018 and 2020, stuccos, friezes, external facades, balconies reinstated in 2018, and the internal painting updated in 2022.

It also features biomass heating (pellets) with cast iron radiators, replacing the historic fireplaces (although present in some rooms), internal thermal insulation on the ground floor, osmotic dehumidification system at the base of the building, energy efficiency A3.

Finally, automatic gate, historic ice house (among the most important in the region), near which there is an archaeological easement relating to some remains of a 14th century castle, historic brick well inside the house with submersible pump, hydraulic system and external fountain useful especially for watering greenery, external iron pergola and cover for 2/3 cars garage.

Emilia Romagna

Emilia Romagna is Italy’s beating heart as well as its geographical centre, surrounded by the Apennines and the placid waters of the river Po.

Land of Medieval castles and amazing hilly countryside. Land of engines and birthplace of historical automotive brands like Ferrari, Maserati and Lamorghini which are born and still thrive here. Land of culinary excellences and DOP/IGP food products: just think about the worldwide famous cheese “Parmigiano Reggiano” or “Parma’s ham” and more generally the typical cured meats, the unique “tortelli” “tortellini” and “cappelletti” (every city has its specific recipe) … ultimately one of the best cuisines in Italy and in the world, rich of genuine flavors and artisanal products still produced with methods unchanged for generations.

Located in the north of our country, from here you can easily reach the most beautiful natural landscapes of Italy: sea, mountains, lake and renowned cities. So, once you have finished to explore this characteristic territory and taken a gastronomic journey, you could decide to go in just one-hour-and-half drive to the Tirreno seaside (maybe shopping in Forte dei Marmi) or to the Adriatico seaside (eating a “piadina romagnola” in the lively Rimini and Riccione). You could also decide to go to Garda’s lake with its beautiful small villages overlooking the peaceful lake or to extend the journey a little driving to Trentino to enjoy the wonder of the Dolomites. Eventually if you are passionate about cities, you are just two hours drive far from the famous Milan, Florence and Venice.

Every place is so close: that’s why Emilia Romagna is considered the centre of Italy.
