Livorno, Toscana, Italia – 2016

The eighteenth-century property known as “Villa Sproni,” erected on the ruins of the Augustinian hermitage of Santa Maria Caprolecchio in the historic area known as La Leccia. The real estate complex spans approximately 2000 square meters distributed over three floors and is surrounded by a large park. It is connected to the public road by a monumental avenue of cypress trees leading to the main entrance of the villa. At the rear, there is a vast flat garden bordered by sharecropper houses and a perimeter wall with secondary access to fields. The restoration project of the entire real estate complex aimed to maintain the character of a noble country residence with functional annexes, transforming the villa into private residences with a Tuscan character. The spaces range from small lofts to apartments of approximately 220 square meters with private gardens, loggias, and living solutions spread over multiple levels. The use of high-quality natural materials and finishes gives the residential units an atmosphere of noble contemporaneity. The villa enjoys outdoor spaces befitting a prestigious residence, including a large park with numerous centuries-old trees that envelop the property in a natural, serene atmosphere. The historic Italian garden completes the setting.
