We are pleased to offer for sale a stone townhouse in the historical centre of Castiglione Messer Raimondo, a medieval hill-top village in the wonderful Fino Valley, between the Adriatic Coast and the Gran Sasso mountain chain. This house is located in one of the most picturesque parts of the town, the so-called “borgo”, whose name could not better describe its intrinsic factor: gathering its inhabitants and their homes.
The dwelling is on two floors plus a basement which comprises a cellar with independent access from the back of the house and two further storage rooms (one of which is a cave, dug in the turf) which offers incredible shelter in the hottest days of the summer. On the first floor we find the apartment which includes a dining room, a double bedroom, a single bedroom and a kitchen with fireplace.
A staircase takes you to the second floor which hosts a bathroom with bathtub and shower and to the terrace, the greatest feature of the house, that offers a breath taking view towards the valley and the towns of Castilenti and Montefino as well as the fascinating “calanchi” in the territory of Atri. Amongst the roof-tops of the houses on the other side of the “borgo” the Corno Grande sticks out.
The house has a floor area of about 40 square metres and is ready to move into but does require some modernization (such as th leaking bathroom roof). Other renovation works which would bring the house back to its original character are the removal of the external plastering/tiling with the exposition of the stone and the removal of the internal plaster in the cellars which could be turned into a tavern.
The plumbing is insitu for central heating – radiators just need to be installed.
Castiglione Messer Raimondo enjoys great views of the Gran Sasso and hosts all the amenities like bank, schools, post office, petrol station, mini-market/bakery, butcher's, tobacconist's, chemist's and so on. It is ideally located at the reasonable distance of 30 kilometers to the Adriatic Coast and 50 kilometers to the ski resort of Prati di Tivo. Within the radius of 20 kilometers there are other medium-size towns like the gorgeous art cities of Atri and Penne which also offer amazing views towards mountains and sea as well as historical and architectural interest.
