Private structure. Casale La Desdemona stands on Colle Diana, the residential district of Sutri which overlooks the valley of hazelnut groves that stretch as far as the eye can see to the villages of Capranica and Bassano Romano, lit up by the infinite summer sunsets. The house is part of a complex of villas built at the end of the '90s; its restoration, the creation of the stone garden and the construction of the pool were done in 2014. Tufo, bricks, local stone, terracotta floors, chestnut-wood frames and doorsteps and inserts in peperino are the materials that brought the villa to life. From the burgundy purple plaster of the exterior, you pass to the interior with the brilliant white of the colours and upholstery, broken up by the bright, vivid colours of the Venetian plaster that personalizes each room. A gaudy building that stands out against the infinite tones of white of the garden interrupted only by the deep blue of the pool. The villa has multiple entrances that allow a rapid, continuous inside/outside interaction. We are in the presence of a young, dynamic and attractive structure with clean lines in the interior and a minimalist, geometric and contemporary exterior, all very luminous. La Desdemona is separated from the owner's villa, with which it shares the bearing wall, by fencing made of an embankment in tuff with railings; the gates, the entrances, the pool and the outdoor areas are independent and for the exclusive use of the clients. It has to be mentioned that the “Rock Garden” is a peculiarity of this property and it is ideal for people who don’t love insects and suffer from grass allergies
La Desdemona has three floors. Two large main entrances enter directly into a single large area consisting of living room with fireplace and dining room. From the living room a French window leads directly out to the pool and a hallway leads, on the right, to a toilet and, on the left, to the kitchen which, in turn, leads directly out to the pool and to the barbecue. From the dining room (which is a continuum with the external one) a staircase leads down to the basement and up to the first floor. The basement consists of a bathroom with hydromassage shower, a double bedroom with joinable beds and a games room including, among other things, table football, an exercise bike, an aerobic stepper and a stereo. In the games room is a third separate entrance that makes the basement an independent unit. The first floor consists of three double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and a bathroom with tub; one of the rooms has a balcony overlooking the valley while from another room a stone staircase leads outside to the pergola and the pool area. The two main entrances are surmounted by a pergola in wood and fabric that houses the external dining room and the ping-pong table.
The villa stands in 12.000 square metres of land cultivated with hazelnut trees belonging to the family. The garden is made up of river pebbles, Tiber gravel and quarz arenite with newly planted olives, photinia, loropetalum and pyracantha; typical plants and shrubs for a rock garden. You accede to the villa through a pedestrian entrance and two vehicle entrances leading to the parking areas. The embankment fence on three sides gives way to a lighter mesh fence to the southwest, in the direction of the valley and the sunsets over the neighbouring villages of Tuscia, and where all the outside activities of the villa are concentrated. The villa itself and the large sail in the pool area guarantee visual privacy from the other neighbouring villas; we are in open countryside, on gently sloping ground, with no disturbing noise as there are no roads or livestock holdings.
The oval-shaped pool measures 8 m x 4,16 m with a constant depth of 1.2 m; a 70 cm high containment wall in stone and cement guarantees safe use. The inner lining is in blue PVC. The solarium area is provided with deckchairs and furniture and is made up of pebbles, terracotta paving and walkways in local stone in all tones of white and ocher, recalling the enclosure and the tufaceous and calcareous materials of this territory of Etruscan origin. A large white rhomboid sail provides shade and refreshment. The internal and external lighting, the minimal distance from the villa and the immediate access from the living room permit guests to use the pool area during the evening and at night as well. There is an outdoor, cold-water shower. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.
