Seeking that evasive "wow" factor ? Then this will take your breath away !
The location is perfect as you are within walking distance of the charming
hilltop town of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina dating back to the 15th
Century. The main house has a very stately exterior yet inside been
restored with panache and style to give it some warmth and not at all
pompous. The entrance is very appealing as it leads the eye through a
beautifully restored and sand blasted arched vaulted hallway towards the
impressive stone stair case. Central stairwell leads you up through the
whole house as once was. Each of the hallways on each of the two upper
floors are wide and light enhancing the grandeur of this palazzo. All rooms
can be found from these wide hallways as you enter through very attractive
chestnut doors. The bedrooms are all quite large and light with very simple
style of terracotta tiles and beams, all with ensuite bathrooms. These to
match are simply and well designed with small square stone tiles of various
terracotta hues on walls and showers. In fact the taps, showers etc all
tone in perfectly as excellent materials used. This last aspect dominates
the house as all materials are of excellent quality. On the second floor
there is a lovely large yet cosy lounge with it huge stone fireplace to
retire to in the winter.
The reception rooms on the left as you enter the main door are very
dramatic with striking stone floors and under floor heating. The first room
is a huge dining room complete with its central arch. Through this you can
find a very impressive fully fitted kitchen complete with grandiose range
cooker, lovely central island with sink sunk in the black marble work
surfaces. There is a huge stone sink with window above and the whole
ambient is just crying out for some major culinary activity, as this area
all links to outside terracing etc it is an ideal house for entertaining
and or renting. To the side you will find the suggestive covered loggia
which would be superb for those candle lit suppers outside. To use even in
the cooler seasons as could easily be heated into a cosy atmosphere. With
the view of Monte Santa Maria in the background under the setting sun it
would be difficult to find a more suggestive position.
The exterior of this property has a garden terraced on the side of the view
and large gravelled car park alongside. These terraces some of them with
terracotta tiles lead you down to the pool with its vista !!! Certainly it
would not be too difficult to spend enormous amounts of time there
mesmerized by all that beauty !
There is a second outbuilding in the form of an unrestored tobacco tower
just awaiting similar make over to the main house.At present this property
offers excellent commercial potential for high rentals and is most
definitely recommended viewing for those interested in such.
