The "Solitary House" for sale in the island of Capri
For Sale

The villa, called "Solitary House", is one of the most ancient and charming houses of one of the most exclusive and famous locations of the Mediterranean sea, the island of Capri. The "Solitary House" is situated 100 metres circa above sea level nestled among the rocks in front of Capri's Faraglioni with a breath-taking view that you cannot enjoy from any other villa on the island. The villa is mentioned as point of reference in nautical maps given that it can be easily seen and recognize from the sea thanks to its unique terrace with columns. On the West side the residence is surrounded by a well-maintained garden that creates a big natural amphitheatre delimited by the Cliff of Pizzolungo from which the surroundings take their name.

The property was build and finished in 1914 by the engineer and well-known writer Edwin Cerio for living there with his first wife. He designed some of the most famous villas on the islands, among which Villa Il Rosaio in Anacapri. Then he rented the villa to the English writers Compton and Faith Mackenzie who lived there for eleven years circa describing the villa many times in their novels and diaries. During their stay, they host famous personalities of the artistic and contemporary world. They are not the only ones to quote the villa, in fact thanks to its unique location all over the world and its remarkable architectonic value, many publications quote it and show its photos.

Then the actual owner bought the Solitary House and he is the fourth generation of the family who let the villa become their suggestive and unique residence in Capri.

The villa equipped with terraces with breath-taking views spans 480 sq m circa developed on three levels and is surrounded by a well-finished garden of 7,000 sq m circa.

It is an unique opportunity to own an unrepeatable villa from which you can enjoy a breath-taking view of the Capri's Faraglioni.
