Spacious, elegant villa surrounded by olive trees, with fantastic views of the Gran Sasso mountains and the rolling hills towards the sea. The property is situated along a quiet road, but only a 5 minute drive to the bustling town of Penne, where you will find all the shops, restaurants and amenities that you need.
As you arrive at the property, the automatic electric gates open to reveal a long, sweeping driveway to the villa.
It is composed as follows:
GROUND FLOOR – kitchen, dining room, spacious sitting room with patio doors onto a large covered terrace (also reached by the kitchen), bathroom/laundry room and hallway.
External stairs lead to:
FIRST FLOOR – 5 bedrooms, 2 of which have en-suite bathrooms with showers, family bathroom with shower and bath tub. Entrance hall and hallway. Fireplace in one of the bedrooms. There are terraces and/or balconies from 4 of the bedrooms and a long, covered terrace at the top of the stairs. Beautiful mountain views from 2 of the bedrooms. Air conditioning in 2 of the bedrooms, including the master bedroom.
This beautiful villa is in excellent condition and is well looked-after by its current owners. All the rooms are large and full of natural light. The house has been decorated with neutral colours throughout. The flooring on the ground floor is made of terracotta tiles, with wood-effect tiles in the sitting room. There are marble tiles on the stairs and upstairs.
The kitchen was installed in 2016. It has solid oak worktops, a dishwasher, lots of storage space and a large oven.
The door and windows downstairs were fitted in 2016. The windows are double glazed and all have mosquito nets.
The ground floor covered terrace is an ideal spot for barbecues and parties. It easily accommodates 20 people.
In the last couple of years more work has been carried out at the property:
1) 225sqm of tiled patio around the property, plus a small wall leading from the entrance gate to the property.
3) Photovoltaic 6kW solar system.
4) An electric car charging point.
5) A hybrid heat pump heating system, working with solar panels or gas.
There is a fireplace in the kitchen which has a back-burner and heats the radiators.
Large outbuilding, which is very useful for storage and for animal housing. It could be converted in a games room, or an outdoor kitchen, or showering facilities for the pool.
The above-ground pool has wide views of the rolling hills, towards the sea, which can be seen on a clear day.
The grounds are mostly covered by olive trees, plus many fruit trees, including cherry, pomegranate, figs. Much of the area is fenced. The land is gently sloping. Ideal for vegetable plots and keeping horses.
An ideal property for permanent living, but also well suited as a Bed and Breakfast or rental property.
