A cool white modern villa with private descent to the sea and a large terrace with fantastic sea views.
Tucked away in a residential area near Augusta you will find this modern, spacious and white villa. From its vast terrace facing the Santa Croce lighthouse you are treated to an unforgettable sunset. A narrow but lyrical footpath from here will lead you down to the villa’s very own private bay.
Just a couple of minutes drive away, a small cluster of bars and cafés lead to the lighthouse of Capo Santa Croce. Further on, a short drive will take you to the city of Augusta. This is another typical Sicilian town where the old town densely occupies an island accessible by a bridge to a Swabian Castle, forts, a Baroque church surrounded by many excellent restaurants. The modern part is less picturesque. But from here, a mere 10-minute drive will take you to the charming fishing village of Brucoli and you are only 30 minutes away from Siracusa. The inviting Nature Reserve of Vendicari is also a an hour drive way.
Within the villa’s spacious interiors set on two floors, the main color is a crisp cool white defined by the clean lines of its structure. The entrance opens onto a large open-space inundated with natural day light as it is surrounded by large glass doors looking onto to a vista of some lush garden green.
The area is divided into an informal eating section by the open-plan sleek kitchen. The dining table looks straight out towards the terrace and the sea. The two living areas both boast large comfortable sofas. One part of it is designated for a general convivial get together, while and the other has a television for a relaxed viewing. From here you can go on to a large terrace with comfortable furnishings of more sofas, sunbeds et all, making the area ideal both for soaking up the sun and enjoying an aperitif at sunset.
You’ll really enjoy standing by the railing as if on a boat, gazing wondrously at the sea being mesmerized by the lighthouse and the lulling sound of the sea. By the terrace is an inconspicuous gate that leads down to the sea from where you may jump or crawl into from the rocks.
On the same floor of the villa as the living are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom complete with a good proper bath. The second double bedroom shares a bathroom with the third bedroom on this floor. The latter has a smaller double bed.
Downstairs, there is another large space used as a games room with a table football, a ping-pong table and a television set. On this floor is the fourth double bedroom with a bathroom with a shower. This floor also has direct access to the outdoors.
There is ample parking space within the gates of the Villa Faro.
