The 16th century Italian villa from the Academy Award nominated Call Me By Your Name is for sale. Almost a character unto itself, the sprawling and beautifully preserved home provided the perfect background for the coming of age story.
“I had known that house for many years; I even dreamed of buying that house,” Director Luca Guadagnino told Architectural Digest. “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.”
The asking price for the home is €1.7 million ($2.12 million) and includes 20,000 square meters of private land. The home dates back to 1500 is a protected historic property. It comes with a frescoed ceiling in the main hall, painted by Aurelio Busso. The property has 14 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, including the blue tiled one featured heavily in the movie.
The home is located in the town of Cremona in northern Italy. With fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, you will have plenty of time to lounge languidly around the property reading, eating fresh fruit and falling in love. You can see more photos over at House and Loft.
