At the same time a buyer who loves to develop the versatile surface that still is a blank canvas and can become just about anything! A person looking for a property to transform into a place to enjoy, to share, to live. And all just off the beaten track in an area where especially summertime tourism is a big thing. Let’s see what else this property has to offer:
As the images show the right wing of the building has been perfectly renovated into a very attractive slightly quaint cottage of about 100 sq m. The materials have been chosen with knowledge of the local traditions and history. The work itself has been executed in a near perfect manner with skill and taste. The ground floor harbours a living and kitchen which both feature a fireplace. A hatch in the kitchen gives access to a spacious cantina with the same footprint.
The stairs lead up to two cosy bedrooms with typical ceilings of beams and brick, wall of exposed stone and beautiful wooden floors. The bathrooms are spacious and welcoming and, like the rest of house, showcase many peculiar and quirky details.
The left wing of the building spreads out over three floors and covers a total of approximately 250 sq m. As the land is sloping two of them are at a ground floor level, one at the lower back of the building and on at the front. The back entrance level is currently divided into two large connecting and finished spaces intended for use as a tavern. The remaining two floors are connected and in need of a full renovation. They can easily be transformed into rooms, apartments, spaces for art, yoga studio’s or there spaces. It is possible to connect the middle floor level to the finished cottage.
The building sits at the higher part of the land with a nice sheltered garden in front of it. It is just the perfect place perfect for relaxing and outdoor meals and drinks. To the right is parking space whereas to the left the land slopes down and offers a path leading to the tavern level. A large terrace is again a great location for outdoor dining and to enjoy the views! Across the fields lies the hamlet of Montefranco on its private little hilltop. Below the tavern terrace lies a well kept olive grove.
