This property is a 2 bedroom semi-detached house located in the commune of Villa Celiera, 1,000 metres above sea level, 4 km from a village with post office, bars and restaurants, this little country house has the most wonderful panoramic views.
The property was constructed around 130 years ago but was extensively modernized in the late nineties and the entire structure is completely sound, well maintained and requires only those cosmetic changes suggested by one’s personal taste.
The ground floor consists of one large open-plan living room with a kitchen area, with terracotta flooring, exposed stone and chestnut rafters; a beautiful, warm space with a working fireplace and ample light from south-facing windows. There is a small bathroom with shower.
The first floor has 2 bedrooms, one double and one single. (To access the main bedroom with its small balcony it is necessary to cross the single bedroom, which does limit the amount of privacy the occupant might expect).
The roof is of traditional Tuscan tile and there is an external storage area to the side and rear of the house. Gas, electricity, water and drainage are all linked to the mains system and there is a telephone line.
The situation is tranquil and private but not at all isolated, with other houses nearby. The garden of over 3,000 metres deserves a special mention. Set on a hillside in a lovely, sunny situation it does not lend itself to formal gardening. Instead, the current (and long-term) owner has planted a virtual arboretum; cedar of Lebanon, birch, oak, maple and many fruit trees are represented. There is a well in the garden and a level area for alfresco dining.
This house would suite an active couple who love mountain scenery and activities. Use of a car is essential. It is 9 km from the nearest large town (Penne) which has all the facilities and is a lively centre.
