From the lounge, patio doors lead to 40sqm shaded terrace perfect for outdoor living, with breath-taking mountain views. The garden is laid to lawn and is partly fenced. A gate leads to steps down to an area, especially prepared for the installation of an above ground pool, with decking already in place. There are 2 handy store rooms, 1 wood store and parking for 2/3 cars. The access road has been recently re-surfaced.
Casa Lumaca was restored in 2012 to a high standard but keeps a rustic farmhouse feel with some exposed stone walls and high wooden ceilings. A new build extension has created a spacious, L-shaped home. All windows and doors are UPVC, floors tiled.
The land measures 6,869sqm and contains around 60 olive trees and some fruit trees.
The property is in a peaceful location but within easy reach of the main road and 500 metres from the quiet, medieval village of Appignano. Within a 5 minute drive, you will reach Bisenti and Castiglione Messer Raimondo, where restaurants, shops & a weekly markets can be found. Or if you prefer not to leave the house the mobile baker passes the house 3 times a week with fresh bread and pastries. And twice a week the fruit & veg man passes in his van. The house is 30mins from sandy beaches along the Adriatic coast and 30 mins from the Gran Sasso mountain range where walking, cycling and an abundance of wildlife can be found.
An ideal property both for full-time living or a holiday home.
The charm is the atmosphere of the rustic farm ...
