Have you ever read “the secret garden”?
I love the moment when Mary discovers the wooden door and the wonderful place that hides behind it. Today we will give you a similar experience. In Scicli, the most beautiful and photographed building is
the Benevento palace. In one side of this splendid building, a door leads us into our secret garden and just as in the story time and nature have tried to recover their space. Within this courtyard, we imagine around the fifties, a small independent house was built and could now become your splendid home.
Stand in front of the front door and close your eyes, because this property should be seen with heart and good taste.
On the ground floor you can imagine how your spacious living area will transform. The ideal would be to find an antique door, in raw wood simply cleaned and cared for, where you can access a large kitchen with rope shades typical of the buildings of the center of Scicli, the living area furnished in Boho chic style with a large white corner sofa. In this floor we find the first of the two bathrooms of the house with small ancient Sicilian tiles. An important role should be reserved for the redevelopment of the square that can maintain part of the old cobblestones and the remaining a beautiful garden with lamps in the driveway and spotlights that highlight the ancient door and the stone wall. I would highlight the internal staircase that leads to the upper floor with a stone wall exposed by making vertical openings to let the natural light pass through them.
The sleeping area should be reviewed so that the master bedroom has an exit to the small terrace between the roof tiles. Here we will be able to place a whirlpool where you can spend intimate moments protected by a wisteria pergola, while the bed takes the coolness from the balcony to which we will have recaptured the ancient splendor. The second bathroom and a second bedroom or study will complete the floor.
But this is what I “saw” closing my eyes, and you? How fantastic have you decided to transform this pearl? I can’t wait to go back and see what you’ve accomplished.
