    Description

    Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Italian history. Commissioned in 1885 by Count Ceconi and built by noted architect Ruggero Berlam, Villa Ceconi was expanded in 1923 by world-renowned architect Max Fabiani. The founder of the Vienna Secession style of architecture transformed this 36-bedroom palace into a prime example of Art Nouveau. Through its illustrious history, this property was at one time the residence of Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria counting among its many notable guests Empress Elisabeth before it was acquired by the nuns of the Order of Saint Ursula and turned into a monastery. During WWII, the Monastero di S. Orsola played yet another prominent role first as a hospital for the German troops and later as a communication hub for the U.S. Army before returning to its original use as a private residence. Surrounded by a five-acre private park, the property also includes a detached 2,600 sf. guest house consisting of three separate apartments. The property is in serious disrepair and appears to have a lot of deferred maintenance.
