VERY AFFORDABLE HOME IN SICILY’S LOVELIEST HILLTOP VILLAGE
Offering outstanding value for money, Casa San Gaetano demonstrates just how much depth there is to the Sicilian real estate market when the buyer is prepared to look outside the usual hotspots.
This recently renovated, two-bedroom home is available for the kind of sums usually discussed for restoration projects. A really great opportunity for the first time buyer in Sicily.
PRACTICAL AND COMFORTABLE
Casa San Gaetano is found in a small cobbled street not far from the edge of Pollina. On two storeys, it consists of a kitchen, a bathroom and then a pair of large rooms which would both serve well as bedrooms, or could be split into a bedroom and a living room.
Thanks to its scenic location, the house has obvious value as a holiday home, and for this we imagine it as a two bedroom property. The master bedroom upstairs is especially bright and airy, with a dual aspect and full length windows overlooking the surrounding streets and rooftops on two sides.
A TRADITIONAL COMMUNITY WITH A MODERN OUTLOOK
The stunning hilltop town of Pollina is surrounded on all sides by breathtaking panoramas of the Madonie Natural Park and the Tyrrhenian Sea. With a population of around three thousand, this peaceful corner of the island is filled with families who have called the fortified medieval town home for countless generations.
At the same time, there are some surprisingly modern forces at work too. You’ll find a small but friendly community of overseas residents, drawn by the outstanding value and magnificent scenery as well as the proximity to the beaches, especially the outstanding Cefalù, less than half an hour’s drive away. A progressive local administration has also overseen the arrival of a high speed fibre-optic internet, a smart recycling system and a beautiful outdoor theatre.
