Built hundreds of years ago, of local stone and to house a wealthy family, Casa Nuccia retains a level of character and building quality that has been passed down through the generations. With a picture-postcard sea view from the top floor balcony, and plenty of space on four floors, this is a timeless gem with even more potential waiting to be unlocked.
Hillside Construction on Four Distinct Levels
The property is currently comprised of a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a living room and three bedrooms. A large space on the ground floor was once a stable and is currently in need of renovation. A smaller internal room might become a second bathroom.
Built on two floors and into a hillside, the unusual configuration means that there is an entrance from one street on the ground floor, and one directly onto a smaller street on the second floor of the property. The top pair of floors offer through light and air flow in the summer months. Four balconies are distributed to both sides of the property.
Green National Park and Blue Sea
The town of Gratteri is located just twenty minutes from the internationally-famous beach resort of Cefalù. While property in the Norman fishing town is often listed at painfully expensive places, the villages of the Madonie hills offer superb value, with the advantages of proximity to Cefalù (and several other excellent stretches of beach) but a fraction of the cost.
Peace, Quiet and Authentic Sicilian Life
Gratteri is a community of a few thousand residents, with everything you need for daily life. Standing a few hundred metres above sea level it catches a welcome breeze in summer, and offers peace and quiet, with a traditional way of life. In some ways it’s a portal that takes you back to a completely different moment in time, with the winding cobbled streets and leading to quaint piazzas and inspiring viewpoints.
