Country villa of Italy’s rally driving legend Miki Biasion is up for sale

Friday, October 10th, 2014 at 4:09pm Engel Völkers

• Asking price is set at 2.2 million euros

Hamburg/ Venice. The former Italian rally driver and two-time world champion Massimo “Miki” Biasion is selling his 490 square metre villa in the hills of Asolo in Veneto. The exclusive country house is built in a Provençal style on an estate spanning some 30,000 square metres, just a few kilometres away from Biasion’s birthplace of Bassano del Grappa. The asking price is 2.2 million euros.

The southern elevation of the property affords panoramic views over the valley as far as Venice and the Adriatic coast. Surrounded by the lush green countryside and vineyards of the Asolo Hills, the villa enjoys absolute peace and serenity. Miki Biasion acquired the estate as a home for himself and his family in the year 2000. Having decided to move into a more central urban apartment, he has commissioned the Engel & Völkers Shop in Venice with the sale of the property.

The villa comprises nine rooms in total, including four bedrooms and a dining room with a fireplace. A living room presides over all the necessary pre-instalments to transform it into a private spa oasis. The sprawling garden plot features an outdoor pool that has also been designed in a Provençal style.

The Veneto region in the northeast of Italy impresses with its varied natural scenery stretching from the Dolomites to the undulating foothills, and the Po Delta to the Adriatic coast in northeast Italy. The summers here are warm and dry. The main industries in the region include winegrowing and tourism.
