This attractive stone farmhouse is a real Italian retreat, surrounded by olive trees, fruit orchards and a nice garden hosting two patio areas for alfresco dining and sun bathing in the spring and summer time.
The house is composed of two self-contained apartments for a total floor area of 200 square metres divided as follows:
The downstairs apartment has been painstakingly renovated and has a floor space of 125 square metres hosting a hallway/entrance hall, a luxuriously renovated bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, a large double bedroom with french doors opening onto the garden, bedroom (enough space for two twin beds), kitchen with traditional wooden beams, a massive open-plan lounge/living room with incredible vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework and a brick archway between the dining room and the sitting room boasting a log fire and french doors.
The upstairs apartment needs some modernization works although habitable and has a floor space of about 77 square metres comprising a kitchen/diner, living room/studio with french doors opening onto a massive 50 square metres terrace overlooking the quaint village of Bisenti, a storage space (which could be a further double bedroom), bathroom, and 2 bedrooms.
The house has got mains gas central heating downstairs whereas upstairs there is only a wood fired stove but radiators just need to be put back without the necessity of new plumbing.
The downstairs apartment has got wood double glazing windows whereas the upstairs apartment has aluminium double glazing ones.
The property is reached by a private access road and has got Internet with both ADSL and WiFi as well as satellite TV.
It includes about one hectare of land, all in one nice plot surrounding the house. The olive grove in particular is extremely enjoyable for walks in the shade during the warm and sunny spring weather. The land hosts a spring water well which is useful for the irrigation of the orchard as well as an outbuilding with a pig sty and pizza oven.
This property enjoys amazing views of the Gran Sasso mountain range, the nearby hills and the picturesque village of Bisenti, which is within a very short driving distance and offers basic amenities like bank, post office, supermarkets, chemist, bakers, butcher etc.
There are numerous restaurants and agriturismos (one is within walking distance from the house and has got an outdoor pool) in the area offering authentic local cuisine, as well as fabulous opportunities for hiking, skiiing, swimming and other outdoor activities. Bisenti also boasts an indoor swimming pool and is the hometown of the Montonico wine which is celebrated every first Sunday of October with picturesque parades and food stands.
The local street market on Tuesday is also a big deal in the town!
