In the lush, exclusive enclaves of Rome comes a rare opportunity to own a piece of luxury fashion lineage—the Gucci family’s magnificent villa is now on the market. Nestled within a serene, park-like setting just a 10-minute drive from Rome’s historical heart, this opulent property is listed at USD $16.5 million, offering both grandeur and tranquility.
Upon entering the sprawling 10,000-square-meter estate, visitors are immediately transported into a realm of refined elegance. The main villa boasts an impressive 1,200 square meters of meticulously restored living space, replete with fine finishes dating back to renovations in the 1990s. It is accompanied by a stately park extending over approximately 7,000 square meters.
The villa, ensconced in a gorgeous, tree-lined avenue and framed by a well-manicured lawn, radiates an architectural charm that is a confluence of English design and Tuscan flair—as a nod to Aldo Gucci’s UK-born wife, with distinctive bow windows and classic decorations adorning the façade.
Constructed in the late 1940s by Aldo Gucci for his family, and completed in 1951, the villa was more than just a residence; it was a nexus of family tradition and celebration. “He went to live there with his children and their respective spouses, then when the family continued to grow the children went to live in other houses, but they used to gather all together for holidays or other important events in the ‘Family House,'” shares the history attached to this grand abode.
In addition to the main villa, the estate houses a second villa constructed in the early 1960s by Aldo Gucci for one of his sons. This second structure offers potential as a guest house or office space, adding further flexibility to the impressive grounds that also feature a magnificent swimming pool with all the necessary amenities.
The primary villa unfurls over four levels with an array of luxurious spaces—including a palatial entrance, multiple stately living areas, a grand piano-ready secondary living room, and a dining room. Private quarters on the second level offer a master bedroom with breathtaking views of the garden and pool, complemented by two ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets.
The villa’s pinnacle is perhaps its third level, where sweeping views of Rome’s skyline can be admired, “and the priceless value is given by the view, you can see in the distance the Altare della Patria rising from the center of Rome.”
Even with such opulence, practicality is not overlooked, as the property also includes a convenient elevator connecting all floors, an expansive kitchen, and additional staff accommodations.
With the current Gucci heirs eager to pass on this treasure to someone who will “breathe new life into the property, enhancing its value,” this sale presents a unique opportunity. This is more than mere real estate—it’s a chance to be entwined with the legacy of one of fashion’s most illustrious names, all within the embrace of one of the world’s most storied cities.
