Property of extraordinary historical value with its first stones dating back to the 1st Century B.C. during the Roman Republican period, whose tradition refers to as the Mausoleum of Lucullus. In the following centuries was transformed into a monastery ,fortified between the XII and XIII centuries, and in the subsequent epochs became the mansion of the most important noble families ruling in the region. Since 19th century it has been owned by the same noble family as a private mansion. Located in the Castelli Romani area 20 km from the center of Rome, the complex of about 900 square meters is set in an estate of over 2 hectares and is defined by a high stone drum structure that surrounds the main residence and the 12th century Benedictine bell tower. The main building, of about 600 covered sqm, is a semi-circular plan palace on three levels, with large rooms and large hallways and consists of: 4 living rooms and a dining room; 5 large bedrooms and 5 bathrooms; a kitchen with fireplace and a large service area with bedroom, bathroom, laundry room and another bedroom with independent access; two stairways, one of which carved into the bell tower and two spectacular terraces on the upper floors, adjacent to the battlements of the tower and with spectacular views over Rome.
