Variety is reporting that the ultra-lush, groan-worthy Italian villa from the Oscar-nominated Call Me by Your Name is up for sale – and for just $2.7 million it’s a STEAL!
A listing on Home & Loft dates the construction of the villa around the 16th century. According to Elle Decor, the building, which has 14 bedrooms and seven bathrooms, was originally a fortress before it was converted into a home.
The Italian mansion is nestled in the country’s Lombardy region, on the border of Switzerland, and is surrounded by fruit trees, with 15,000 square feet, open fire places, balconies, terraces and even has a pool. A pool!
Director Luca Guadagnino told the New York Times that he briefly considered buying the villa before he came across the Call Me by Your Name script.
“I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house,” Guadagnino toldArchitectural Digest. “Once I realized that I couldn’t afford it and didn’t really want it for my life. I knew where I was going to set the action of the film — this place with faded, aristocratic charm, that a professor and his wife might have inherited but can’t quite keep up.”
Let’s all pool our money and put in a bid!
