Brownfield Villa Costa Carmagnola

Short Overview

The villa, built in the early nineteenth century and owned by the Costa Carmagnola family, was one of the first residential buildings built in Santa Margherita Ligure, located in the city centre near the local train station is easy to access and with sufficient provision of services.

The stately home, with adjoining tree-lined garden, is on four floors above ground as well as an attic floor and was designed according to a classical plan, that is, with a square facade with two lower side wings covered with large terraces, whilst the main floor has a large central hall with side sitting rooms from which you can access the terraces.

The interiors are refined by the pictorial decorations of Giovanni Franceschetti, an artist active in the early twentieth century in Santa Margherita Ligure, whilst part of the original furnishings have been lost except for some fine examples of applied arts such as putty, fireplaces and other decorations.

The structure is made of mixed masonry stone / brick and, in its smaller elements, brick; as well as the vaulted horizons of the first floors, whilst those of the upper floors are in wood with false ceilings in reed, sometimes shaped like a false vault (main hall on the second floor).

The roof of the main body is a pavilion with a wooden load-bearing structure and slate covering, whilst the side bodies have flat terrace coverage practicable. The exterior has a plaster finish on the facades, with large stringcourse mouldings and faux ashlars around the holes, in the ground floor band and at the edges. The large wooden shutters are those typical of the Ligurian building tradition.

The building underwent extensive renovation in the mid-'80s, which involved external plastering, the complete renovation of the interior, the total renovation of the roof and systems, with the installation of a thermal power plant and a lift.
