Step inside this Italian property, nestled into the hills of the Piedmont region, and be transported back through time to the 1970s.
Villa Valmanera is a time capsule bolthole near Turin, complete with pea-green carpets, cork surfacing and a chrome-spindle spiral staircase that nods coolly to futurism.
While the decade might be known for its questionable colours and maximalist gusto, the three-bedroom Asti home is both elegant and restrained – and surprisingly modern. Crisp white walls are timeless, but its smoothly curving interior lines complement the earthy tones found in original tiling.
Valmanera is on the market via Fantastic Frank Italy for €390,000, and the villa’s setting is just as notable as is styling. It’s surrounded by tall trees on a hectare of parkland, a short drive from the centre of Turin.
