Italian house in lovely village near Berceto, Parma, Emilia Romagna for sale
The property is situated directly on the Franciscan Way (Via Francigena) within a lovely ancient village with fabulous restaurant in a tranquil setting and surrounded by fields and woods. with amazing views of the Apennines. The weather is continental. with hot dry summers and snow in winter. It is not a humid climate unlike the city of Parma on the plain.
It lies 4 km from Berceto and 7km from the A15 motorway Parma – La Spezia and less than one hour from the famous Cinque Terre on the Ligurian coast.
It's the ideal area for mushroom hunters. for high altitude treks(above 1800 meters). for excursions through the “Cento Laghi” (one hundred lakes) regional park. for horse riding tours in the Apennine mountains and valleys.
The old stone house. which dates back to the 1600's. needs to be restored both internally and externally; it is arranged over three floors and covers a total surface of 200 m2.
The building has a strong structure entirely built in local stone; inside some rooms have exposed stone walls and exposed wood beamed ceilings in respect of original style and materials; the renovation could expose the stone walls in the remaining rooms. The roof will require complete replacement with original style stone tiles which are still in place. many can be re-used. some need to be sourced new from the local quarries.
It consists of seven spacious rooms which can be used as bedrooms or other uses. two rooms for the living area. one bathroom and an external large terrace.
The floors communicate via 2 sets of internal stairs. one of which is stone steps. one is terrazzo.
The house can be restored creating two autonomous apartments with independent entrances. or up to five one-room apartments.
A few metres from the building is an independent partly stone built former barn of 90 square metres which reaches a maximum height of 5 meters; the roof has been completely redone and it can be converted into a single dwelling. attached to the barn is an annex of 32 sqm. roof redone. with an average height of 3 metres. this is currently used as a garage but can be incorporated into the dwelling. both subject to planning approvals which are normally straightforward.
In the courtyard there is also a stone external oven building of 50 sqm arranged on two levels and an adjacent small stone derelict building used as wood shed/tool shed.
All the buildings need renovation. All materials have been kept onsite for restoration.
The property has a courtyard of about 150 sqm which surrounds the barn and the stable and an adjacent plot of land of about 1200 sqm. just below the barn.
Water. gas and electricity are present. nbsp;wood burning stove present but not fitted. it will require a new flue.
It's a perfect holiday home for its convenient peaceful setting. friendly village with some english speakers ( that helps me!). 55 minutes from Parma airport. 1 hr 20 minutes from Pisa airport. This is on the market with a local very good. knowledgable and reliable professional estate agent and due to the Italian regulations. I would involve them with the sale but personally accept all this agent's fees as part of the sale since I am based in the UK and not able to go out for viewings. I was going to restore this but my plans changed for personal reasons.
