Plunged in an idyllic atmosphere, surrounded by gently rolling hills and naturally bordered by the Swamp river, the Casale Valle Rosa del Cigno, more than typical country residence is a truly beautiful place.
A tree-lined path gives access to the entrance of this oasis of privacy and tranquillity where the structures of the property are located in a typical harmonious rural plan with a common gravel courtyard and flower-beds.
The Casale is composed of a large villa on 2 levels, covering approximately 250 sq.mt ; a few steps next to the main villa there is a one storey outbuilding for further 100 sq.mt, a restored silos (wheat storage) and an old stone water-mill dating back to the 19th C.
Moreover a newly built and well refined warehouse of 150 sq.mt surface with two large covered porches.
The buildings are embraced by 2 hectares private land of flat areas surrounded by lush river vegetation.
The ground floor hosts the day area and is composed of a large living-room with fire place overlooking the portico and the garden, a dining area connected to the kitchen, a pantry room and a toilet. The staircase that leads us to the night area is a really masterpiece of craftsmanship. Upstairs we have 5 large bedrooms 4 of which with en-suite bathrooms and a storage room.
The Guests house:
This nice one storey dependance, equipped with all comforts, includes a living room with kitchen, a lovely veranda, 3 bedrooms (2 double and 1 single) and 2 bathrooms.
This property is the result of a diligent and meticulous work of reconstruction to regain the lost character of this home in a unique labour of true love.
A sympathetically attention for every single details in recovering this unique traditional dwelling is really what impressed us more when we first got to this place.
The mill sets on two levels, each one with an independent access. On the ground-floor, we find a big open space with a nice country kitchen, dining room and wine cellar, two doors links this space to the large patio/barbecue area.
While, on the first floor, we have a second smallest kitchen, a living room with open fireplace, 2 bedrooms (sleeping up to 6 people) and 2 bathrooms.
The owner?s passion in the wise conversion of this rural building into a lovely petit library and a workshop, shows clearly the attention and care that these people have for the conduction of their home. A gem!
The beauty of this property seems perfectly tuned with the surrounding vegetation and the outdoor area that is equipped also with a medium size above-ground pool.
Casale Valle Rosa del Cigno is a charming dwelling and a perfect setting for those wishing to lead a country lifestyle, without being too isolated or having to relinquish the comforts and the services offered by a nearby town.
The spacious living accommodation allows for greater flexibility of use. The villa or the dependance would be an ideal main residence with the possibility to use the extra rooms for guests, or for short lets.
Despite we are in open country side the property is easy to reach and just 5 kilometres away form the closest town of Alanno. Moreover main communication roads, such as motorway, are just 10/15 minutes by car
