Would you love to have a family holiday home and olive grove on the beautiful Island of Sicily (Sicilia) or a part or full time lucrative business opportunity? Wow your family and friends.
Hello and thank you for taking a look at our property for sale. Which for some could be a great income for life or pension.
Of course we do not expect you to press buy it now. Talk to us about this property. Some kind of part payment could secure the property until you were ready to move forward.
We would be happy to meet you in Sicily (cheap ryanair flights) to show you around and discuss options with you.
Dont just dream. make it happen.
About the property:The business opportunity is explained later in this listing is for one totally independent floor of this Villa and we would be your neighbours.
The villa is at a more advanced stage than the main photo.
This advert is for the ground floor of the Villa. please read on and do not miss a great opportunity. you will love it.
The photos show the villa at various stages of the build and the nearby resort of Cefalu in Sicily.
The structure including roof. internal walls and 1st external base render has now been completed and is ready for windows. iles and electrics.
Winter in Sicily is often a comfortable short sleeves 19 degrees and sunshine. You can look forward to nice hot sunny summers that get into the high 30's c and early 40's c .
We started our search for the location of our " A place in the sun" and new Villa a few years ago and after looking at lots of property and locations. we finally found the perfect plot and location .
There was a large old derelict house on the existing plot so we had plans drawn up and submitted to demolish the old house and build a new 6 bed 4 bathroom Villa divided into 2 for two separate families built to the latest high building regulation standards.
The design is split into a first floor and a ground floor both with independent access and totally separate with an external staircase between the ground the first floor.
It has independent electrics and plumbing etc
Each floor has 3 double bedrooms. 2 bathrooms. a large kitchen and a huge lounge/living area with dual aspects to take in the wonderful views from every window.
This large villa is enclosed behind private gates and surrounded with its own metal railing fence. on a private road among another 10 villas/houses and the villa has just under an acre of olive grove with many trees. mainly olives but also lemons and sharon fruit.
There is plenty of room for a pool if required.
This property is a solid built new villa. unlike many properties offered for sale that have been neglected for many years and in some cases tarted up so you cant see the problems that often will show up later requiring repairs or rebuilding costing 2 or 3 or more times the initial purchase price. This villa is top quality in a fantastic location close to the prestigious resort of Cefalu.
The villa is in the province of Palermo and the views to the front of the villa are across the valley to a beautiful mountain and to the right a view of the sea just 3km away. It is a very good location with great neighbours including a retired high ranking policeman. a couple of university lecturers and other business people.
Although this villa is in a tranquil area. it is only 5 mins to two local towns for everyday shopping etc and only 20 mins from the beautiful and famous Northern Sicily resort town of Cefalu and the surrounding Madonie national park.

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and and is the furthest south you can go in Italy with glorious sunshine and has a unique food and culture and is steeped in beauty and history and it would take a lifetime to explore it all. nd of course there is the magnificent active volcano mount Etna on the far East of the Island.
As you can see in the pictures (they do not do the location justice) the outside areas. parking. lanting etc are currently unfinished but the structure of the Villa is built. the roof is finished. the upper floor is plumbed and only a very small amount of work left to complete the upper floor. and although we still live and work in England. we rent an apartment in the local town until the villa is finished.
The business opportunity:
We intended to use the upper floor for ourselves and rent the lower floor to tourists and holiday makers and the rental income for one floor would be between £800 per week (low season) and around £1400 per week in July and August as there is room for 6 in the three double bedrooms and if required another 2 on a double sofa bed in the lounge making it able to sleep 6 to 8 people.
Bearing in mind that the holiday season in Sicily is around 9 or 10 months a year thats a pretty good income or even a good pension.
There is also an opportunity to rent at the end of the season to the wealthy classic sports car owners that arrive from all over Europe and USA during October and throughout the year to take part in the classic Targa Florio and all the hotels and Villas get fully booked up. The targa Florio runs right past the villa.

For tv and film fans. The godfather films had scenes filmed here both in the countryside and in Palermo city on the steps of the theater (the final scene of The Godfather 3) and there are lots of places to visit including Corleone and nearby Lercara friddi which is the birthplace of the notorious mafia boss Lucky Luciano and also where Frank sinatras Father was born. Sicily is also the Island where the italian tv series Inspector Montalbano (shown on bbc 4) was based and filmed.
The island is also covered in old temples and Cathedrals and ancient ruins from greeks and romans and many more that have conquered the Island of Sicily over thousands of years.
At present we find ourselves in a position where can not complete the whole project as we originally wanted and so have decided to offer the lower part of the Villa for sale along with half of the land either as it currently stands or as a finished Apartment that we would project manage the build finishing for you if you wished.
We could even assist in future rentals if thats what you wanted to do. we plan to have a website for promotion of the villa rental.
Either way we have all the contacts and builders and many Sicilian friends that can assist us or you. that we have aquired over the last 3 or more years. We are an English couple but my Wife Maria . lthough born in England is of Sicilian origin and speaks fluent Italian and the local Sicilian dialect. and has relatives that live on the Island. this can be very useful.
The price shown in the listing is for the lower floor and half the land as is. ie the shell ready for electrics. plumbing . indows etc. It would cost approx £30k to £40k complete depending on the required finish or as a finished unit. making the finished cost for you around £140. 00
When finished the lower floor would be worth nearly £200k not taking into account the rental value as an investment value if used as a full or part time business. making this an excellent investment property.
You may even want to share the investment between family or friends or some other part ownership may be available. ask.
By negotiation we can sell it as a finished and ready to use or rental property. its up to you. Maybe you share in our dream of "a place in the sun" or maybe you are from UK. America. Canada etc and have rootes linked to Sicily.
We intend to use the upper floor for our own use throughout the year so you know who your neighbours are.
If you are interested or require further information. please contact us. We are happy to take enquiries from England. SA. Canada and Europe
We have put hard work and cash into this project and all the headaches are gone. so an easy road to the finish for any potential buyers or investors.
The buy it now price is subject to negotiation and contracts. Offers considered by viewers.
