A Country House, 20 Minutes by Train from Rome


Home Description

A charming country house set in a garden bursting with floral life and away from the hustle and bustle of the capital. Peonies, camellia, rhododendrons, hibiscus and narcissus cluster around a house-surrounding Mediterranean garden whose highlight is a fine collection of roses lovingly collected by the owner from across Europe. A rose-smothered pergola and furnished patio are just some of the outside possibilities for dining, relaxation and quiet reflection. There�s a large built wood oven for that perfect pizza and built-in barbeque fit for entertaining on a small or large scale.

The house is a tall fifties build with warm pastel-hued decorative finishes and an eclectic and interesting collection of antique furniture, bric-a-brac and objet trouvez from around the world which fill the comfortable interiors. Indeed, Indian garden furniture are at home with Italian period furniture. A fitted kitchen gives onto the garden, there is an open living/dining room with fireplace whilst upstairs the two double French double bedrooms both have access to a panoramic terrace partially shaded by a rare fir tree but offering views east over the rolling countryside to the Colli Prenestini and the ancient and historic town of Palestrina.

In a rural setting just outside of San Cesareo, the pretty village is a very short drive away with all essential facilities including restaurants, bars, banks, chemists and supermarkets. San Cesareo is also renowned for its varieties of bread and salted pork! A 10 minute walk brings you to Zagarolo railway station providing direct local rail connections to Rome in under half-an-hour making a fine day out to Rome easy and convenient.
