The property, set on three levels, is about 350 mq: the secluded garden (wih fruit trees, paved court and terrace) sizes about 175 mq and the residence is composed of 110 mq of interior living area and 65 mq of a splendid grotto, where we plan to create an exclusive private spa. The access to the property was kept from the garden, where the terraced levels were preserved by restoring the original limestone tiles and the pitch-stone stairs for the walkways and the foor. In the same place where once upon a time, as we then discovered, there had been the same use, was created a dining outdoor area with a large lava-stone tiled decor table designed by Made a Mano, Caltagirone. Both the Ivy outdoor chairs by Emu and the lamps of the dining area by OFF Roma, with their white metal net structure, aims at a sort of transparency so to blend with the garden. The further turquoise Afra relax chairs and Float pouf by Paola Lenti evoke a deep mediterranean feel. In a corner of the garden marked by a beautiful pomegranate tree, the symbol of Modica, an ancient circular stone basin was converted into a heated plunge-pool, where one can relax while gazing at the contour of the Cathedral of S. Giorgio. From the garden an existing staircase leads to the panoramic terrace facing the Cathedral, marked by a limestone foor and an outdoor lounge divan by Paola Lenti. The interiors respects the original plan: the ground foor features two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen with a large stone arch, leading downstairs to an underground wine cellar and upstairs to the third bedroom with ensuite bathroom, which is connected with the terrace representing its ideal extension outside. The linking element between the three levels of the house is a scenographic elycoid iron stair, about 7 mt high, at the top of which an original closure manhole replaces the door and allows to preserve the privacy of the upper room while saving the space inside.
