If you are looking for breath-taking sea views in a wonderful climate in one of Italy’s most beautiful locations, look no further.
This extraordinary home, skilfully renovated under designs drawn up by renowned architect Tiziano Lera, is situated in Borgo di Tellara, a picturesque village on the Ligurian Riviera which enjoys mild temperatures even during the coldest months of the year and which comes with its very own special story. Legend has it that an enormous octopus made its way to the port and sounded the bell to warn the locals that the Saracens were preparing to invade.
Many of the original features which give it so much soul and character have been retained or reworked in its makeover, such as gables, columns and cornices. Painstaking work has gone into ensuring the property respects its origins and history, with skilled local artisans providing their know-how and craftsmanship and materials of the highest quality such as natural stone, bronze and embellished glass. A lovely courtyard with two parking spots (a rarity and privilege in Liguria) leads to the property. Entering you find yourself in an entrance decorated with frescoes, with a hallway and marble staircase leading to the four floors above. At the top of the first flight is an incredible living room with five-metre high vaulted ceilings and a stunning fireplace created by the sculptress Sophia Varia, wife of the acclaimed Fernando Botero. Truly a space made for welcoming and entertaining guests, it looks out onto the sea and is adjoined to an elegant dining room with frescoed ceilings, also found in the connecting kitchen. The next floor contains a second living room with a brick vaulted ceiling, and a day zone, second dining room and divine master bedroom and ensuite, with direct access to the picture-perfect tiny port area of Tellaro. Ascending the stairs again you find three master bedrooms, of which two have ensuites, two single bedrooms and a bathroom.
Why this house:
Elegant, welcoming and full of history and charm, this property is a truly rare piece of real estate on the Ligurian Coast. Are you ready to fall asleep with views of the sea? There is also scope for you to put your own mark on the property, with designs for a roof terrace already approved and the potential to create an independent apartment on the lower floor.
