ITALIAN house FOR SALE. Abruzzo. REFURBISHED. for holiday or life change. for sale
this is a beautiful little house in Castel-di-Ieri. Abruzzo. which is in the middle of Italy. on the spine. in the mountains but surrounded by lovely towns and very good wide roads. Sulmona. Chieti. L'aquila. Avezzano. Raiano. Pescara (nearest airport and beach is at Pescara. which is three quarters of an hour away). Rome is one and half hours away. All of these towns are easy to get to. Castel-di-ieri is one of 6 little villages nestled in the mountains. but the village has a restaurant. two bars. church. school. pharmacy. wonderful grocery shops that sell absolutely everything. post office. bus service etc. etc. There are quite a few english speaking people who have bought houses in the village and area. and a lot of the italians speak english and are very pro english. It is a friendly little community. surrounded by stunning countryside in their equiva;ent of National Parks. The sunflower picture is a photo of the village from a slight distance.
The house overlooks the gorge so has a wonderful view. and comprises the following. it is a very early house. circa 1700. built in the historic part of the town. parking is around the corner. and it is in a very very quiet spot. it is attached to another little house of the same ilk. that is owned by an italian who holidays there. but does not live there full time. A lot of people from Rome own houses in the area and use them as holiday homes in August.
lst floor (entered by a few steps). you go through the front door. into a hallway which also serves as a little dining room. on the left is a kitchen. with a woodburner. and is very well equipped and fitted. and a window.
Back into the hall and on the left is a bedroom. also with a pretty window. overlooking a garden. window seat. a door leading into a fabulous shower/toilet. good size room and extremely well equipped. Back into the bedroom and hallway and at the end of the hallway there is a pretty sitting room. with two windows overlooking the gorge and mountains. The house has been very well refurbished but without losing any of the character.
Outside and down the steps. there is a lower floor which has two rooms. one with water. these have not been refurbished but are in very good condition and could be used to do absolutely anything. it could have another bedroom. a laundry room. or a study etc. etc. it has a lot of scope. There is no garden. although the house is surrounded by a garden that belongs to a neighbour. but there is a good sized sitting area. large enough for table and chairs and a seat etc. The house is in a sunny position and is light and airy. The view from the sitting room is looking across the gorge.
This is not my house. but I know it well. owning other property in the village. and this would be a very good purchase at this price. The person owning it has had to make a decision to stay in the u. k. due to committments here. although his plan was to move out to Italy.
You can telephone me on 07900375410 and I can answer questions for you. Viewing can be arranged with a housekeeper in the village. and Steve will actually be at the house for the week beginning 8th september. If you would like advice on how to purchase a house in Italy. I would be happy to explain it all to you. and give you the expenses involved. My home number is 01982 551972 if you want to telephone me in the evenings. Phone the owner. Steve. on 07760234443 for all other information or to arrange a viewing.
I don't think you would easily find another little house in this area at this price. most of them are not refurbished . this house would be sold with most of the furnishings. so would be ready to move into straight away after the purchase. This is an ideal house for a complete life change or simply as a holiday home.
There is a lady in the village who would love to carry on looking after the property in anyone's absence.
£35. 00. would secure this house. There are more photos available if you would like to see them. I will put another of the view as soon as I have them to hand.
