Dubbed The Artisan, this Italian-inspired villa is situated on a 4.59 acres lot in La Morelja, Northern Madrid, the Spanish version of Beverly Hills, with affluent neighborhoods and high-profile residents. It features a breathtaking lush mature garden designed by the noted landscape architect, Fernando Caruncho – they brought in the magnolias from the famous Italian nursery, suppliers of the Medici in Pistoia, Florence.
The 3-sory villa was built in 1996 in the 16th century style of Italian palaces, with elegant classic interior details yet enjoying all the comfort of modern homes. The paving tiles at the entrance were recovered from the Catalonia Monastery of Monserrat. There are square esplanades with majestic walls and stalls which provide colorful sights.
