This classic brick-built Italian farmhouse has recently been totally remodelled and refurbished by the current owners to a very high standard. The remodelling has created a spacious home transfused with light. Every room enjoying superbly spacious proportions. The property is situated just 5km from Penne, one of Abruzzo’s most beautiful historic cities, with many shops and amenities. There are lovely views of the surrounding rolling hills and countryside.
You enter the property via electric gates with new commercial grade intercom and driveway leads to the house.
The main house is composed as follows:
GROUND FLOOR (116sqm) – Spacious marble entrance hall with storage cupboard under the stairs. Door to wc and shower room. Door opening on to very large lounge with 3.1m wide full height windows which flood the room with light and provide fantastic views over fields and hills. The lounge adjoins generously proportioned kitchen and dining room. A stunning contemporary kitchen with quartz worktops and high gloss units have been installed by the current owners. Door from kitchen leading to utility room housing new gas condensing boiler and large hot water tank together with separate washing machine and tumble drier. Leading off the lounge door to study/bedroom 4 with parquet timber flooring.
The house benefits from an internal staircase, with marble treads and new bespoke stainless steel balustrade leading to:
FIRST FLOOR (119sqm) – Spacious light infused landing with views over the swimming pool, garden and distant countryside towards the National Park. Door to a very useful, large store room. From an inner lobby area doors lead to three generously proportioned double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. The master bedroom has full height doors with Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobe and the en-suite has two basins, a walk-in shower and separate bath.
The restoration of the main house carried out by the current owners includes the following improvements:
New aluminium double-glazed windows with insect nets and shutters throughout,
New internal and external doors,
New plumbing, including Ideal Standard sanitary ware.
New heating system including a gas-fired condensing boiler, new thermostatically controlled radiators throughout zoned separately upstairs and downstairs via digital controllers,
New electrical system, including LED lighting,
The kitchen and dining areas are separately zoned for light and ambience,
Contemporary kitchen with quartz worktop, built-in appliances,
Large format floor tiling in all but study/bedroom 4,
Bespoke stainless steel balustrade for internal staircase.
The main house benefits from photovoltaic solar panels providing a regular income which is sufficient to reduce the electric bills of the current full-time occupants to zero.
A large covered area joins the main house to another spacious building of approximately 100sqm. This building has plans and consents to convert to a separate two bedroom annex with bathroom and lounge/dining/kitchen area. This building would make ideal guest accommodation with a moderate amount of work necessary.
A key feature of the outside is the brand new 10m x 5m swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by stone paving and on two sides has extensive decking providing sufficient space for lounging and enabling al fresco dining.
Beyond the surrounding garden the land includes 60 olive trees and a selection of fruit trees and other mature trees and plants.
