** A SUPERB RESTORATION AND DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY **
A partly restored traditional farmhouse occupying a wonderful elevated hilltop position and with commanding views over the Aso valley, glorious countryside, the mountains, towards the sea and surrounding medieval towns.
The property comes with nearly 7,000 sq m of land and potential to construct a second house of up to 230 sq m. Alternatively, it may be possible to create a single large house of around 400 sq m.
This two storey farmhouse, built in 1880, is immediately habitable for holiday use but its outstanding location makes this a really good restoration project to create a stunning holiday or permanent home.
The main accommodation is currently on the first floor, accessed by an external staircase. This leads through double entrance doors to the open plan living room with wood burning stove and fitted kitchen. Adjacent is the spacious dining room with glazed double doors opening onto a large west facing terrace with small portico over the dining area. Also on this floor are two double bedrooms and a modern bathroom with large shower. Features include underfloor heating, cotto tiled floors, high timber beam ceilings and good natural light throughout.
The ground floor offers a large studio bedroom with kitchenette. The remainder of this floor is unrestored and comprises the original stable with beam ceiling, four store rooms and a garage. All rooms are suitable for conversion to additional living accommodation.
Outside the house are various structures including the original pizza oven, piggery, workshop and two barns. All are registered as volume for building purposes.
The land extends to 6,700 square metres and is presently surrounded by various pine, fruit and other natural trees - the majority of which can be cut down to create truly magnificent panoramic views. There is an ideal space for a swimming pool.
This lovely property is located only 5 minutes from the popular historic town of Montefiore Dell'Aso with its excellent bars, restaurants and local facilities. The sandy beaches and seafood restaurants along the Riviera delle Palme are only 20 minutes away and the local airport one hour.
