A truly charming and beautifully restored three bedroom stone built farmhouse with lovely rural views and within walking distance of a small medieval town.
This property was meticulously restored ten years ago by the current owners using many of the original materials including lovely old oak beams and lintels. It now offers a perfect balance of traditional character and modern living convenience.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors with the ground floor comprising a spacious living room with high beamed ceiling, part exposed stone walls and wide part glazed doors opening onto the south facing terrace and garden; open plan fully fitted modern kitchen with adjoining dining area; utility room and bathroom with shower.
A wide central cotto staircase leads to the first floor offering a cosy second living room with wood burning stove, two double bedrooms with outstanding views from each, and a spacious bathroom with bath tub and shower. On the second floor is the third double bedroom (with reduced height) and another room suitable for a studio or occasional guest bedroom.
Outside the kitchen is a vine covered pergola producing gentle shade in the summer months and the house is set within an easily maintained enclosed mature garden with lawn and a variety of fig, olive, fruit and ornamental trees, shrubs and flowers. There is a perfect tree shaded area for outside dining and entertaining next to the pizza oven! There is also a small area of decking for a spa pool.
The property is conveniently situated just off a quiet local road and has private parking for two cars. Whilst it is attached to an adjoining property the design and orientation ensure that privacy and enjoyment of use are not affected.
The location of Casa Bella make it an ideal "lock and leave" holiday home from which to explore the region. It also has excellent proven rental history.
The nearby town of Gualdo offers good local facilities and there are a number of larger towns within 15 minutes drive. The sandy beaches of the Adriatic can be reached in 45 minutes and the two local airports in one hour.
The house already has telephone points, though the current owners chose not to have a landline connected.
