Fortress de­signed by Leonardo to sell for € 5-10 mln

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

A seafront fortress with im­pos­ing walls de­signed by Leonardo Da Vinci is up for sale for about 5-10 mln eu­ros by pre­mium real­tors Lionard Lux­ury Real Es­tate of Florence. The fortress, lo­cated in Livorno, Tus­cany, was briefly used as a dwelling by Da Vinci him­self in 1502 and was later owned by Napoleon’s sis­ter, Princess Elisa Bon­a­parte, in the 19th cen­tury.

The fortress is just one of over 100 seafront prop­er­ties in Lionard’s port­fo­lio, which in­cludes vil­las and cas­tles for sale in Ital­ian re­sorts, with prices rang­ing from 2 to 45 mln eu­ros.

No­table high­lights in the port­fo­lio in­clude a tower home on the Amalfi Coast orig­i­nally built to with­stand pi­rate at­tacks and now trans­formed into a villa over three lev­els with pri­vate sea ac­cess, and a Coppede-style castle on the Lig­urian Riviera.

The prop­erty, built in the early twen­ti­eth cen­tury and sur­rounded by a his­toric park, mea­sures 800sq.m., with in­te­rior space dis­trib­uted over six lev­els.

Ac­cord­ing to Lionard, Tus­cany is the most re­quested re­gion for prop­erty, with Forte dei Marmi lead­ing. The other sea­side re­sorts which are highly re­quested are Capri and the Amalfi Coast, Portofino and the Lig­urian Riviera, and Sar­dinia.

Among the 140 sea­side prop­er­ties fea­tured on is a Portofino-based villa over­look­ing the Lig­urian sea which once housed Robert Kennedy dur­ing a visit, lib­erty-style vil­las along the Forte dei Marmi prom­e­nade and many more.
