Free-standing building, former kindergarten, located in a non-urban area of Verona, in the hamlet of Magrano, in the north-east quadrant of the metropolitan area. The building, unused for some time, as it is no longer instrumental to the exercise of institutional functions, can be redeveloped with residential functions, for which a request for an urban planning variation has been lodged with the competent authorities. The building is surrounded by an open area extending over 1,300 sqm.
The free-standing building, originally used as kindergarten, has been the subject of an urban planning variation aimed at allowing its transformation into homes, as the current intended use is no longer instrumental to the exercise of institutional functions. The building is divided into a mezzanine floor partly used as a kindergarten and partly as a teacher’s accommodation and a basement which houses the central heating room; the property includes also an appurtenant area and grounds of approximately 1,362 sqm. The planimetric layout is regular, as is the architectural layout of the elevation, which presents regular openings and an external two-coat plaster finish. The floors are in reinforced concrete and the two-pitched roof boasts a traditional tiled covering. The systems and finishes, both of the building and of the courtyard area, need to be refurbished. The external area, almost triangular in shape, is fenced off to the south with retaining walls and an overhanging metal railing, along the northern border with retaining walls, while on the western border only with a metal mesh. The ground elevation is almost flat, with the exception of the green portion located to the south-west, which tends to slope towards the road.
The property is located in a suburban area of the municipality of Verona (population 258,765) capital of the province of the same name (population 922,383) in the Veneto region, in the hamlet of Magrano, in green surroundings. The area is located on the north-eastern border of the Municipality of Verona to which it belongs, and is about 20 km from the city centre (Piazza Brà), a Venetian city rich in history and monuments, including the Arena di Verona in the centre of Piazza Brà, Via Mazzini (historic shopping street), the famous Juliet’s balcony a few meters from Piazza Erbe, the Torre dei Lamberti and the Scaliger Tombs. The hamlet can be reached by taking the Provincial Road SP-35, which allows for an easy access to the urban area. The bus stop for line 119 managed by the local public transport company is in the immediate vicinity of the property. The “Verona Porta Nuova” railway station, which guarantees regional and high-speed connections with the cities of Rome, Milan, Bologna, Venice, Bolzano and Munich, is about 22 km from the property (35 minutes by car), while the “Valerio Catullo” international airport of Verona-Villafranca is 38 km from the hamlet (40 minutes by car). The “Verona Nord” motorway exit of the “A-22” (Brennero) motorway is 28 km from the area, while the access to the southern ring road, which connects to the “A-4” (Turin-Trieste) motorway, is 21 km away from the property (25 minutes by car).
