An Important and Unique Antique Residence with Sea View

Lovely, grand old residence with 10 rooms that retains almost all of its original features – fantastic frescos, original floors and wonderful handmade iron work etc. Located in the most beautiful surroundings along the Sicilian Northern coast.


  • Grand antique residence with-sea-view
  • Large family home or bed and breakfast business
  • Fantastic frescos
  • Original floors
  • Marble stairs
  • Wonderful handmade iron work
  • New roof and good structural condition


In the mountains, two kilometers from the pretty and popular, seaside town of Acquedolci, you will find some of the most beautiful countryside on the Island. It’s a land of timeless beauty, where rich Sicilians built large and opulent holiday homes to escape the scorching summer sun. Sadly, many of these wonderful homes have been demolished to accommodate new constructions so it is rare to find something that is in its original state and retains almost all of its original features – fantastic frescos, original floors and wonderful handmade iron work that adorns the marble stairwell, windows and balconies.

This lovely, grand old residence, is an excellent example of this kind of property. Sadly it has been uninhabited for over 50 years but, nevertheless, it is remarkably preserved. It would not take much to rescue it and bring it back to its original glory – as a large family holiday home or perhaps a home/bed and breakfast business.

Located approximately halfway between Palermo and Messina and conveniently located for Milazzo, the ‘gateway’ port to the Aeolian Islands, this delightful country property has everything. C.1,5 hour to Palermo, a little under an hour to Milazzo, a few minutes from the seaside and central to the wonderful Northern coast of Sicily. In the neighbouhood there are several coastal and mountain towns to be found.

This incredible property offers some 300 sq m of living accommodation, is structurally sound (with a new roof) and has the potential to be a truly breathtaking home. Originally commissioned by a wealthy builder some 100 years ago, the original features have to be seen to be believed with the only new addition being a brand new roof. On the outside, the building is wonderfully proportioned, with fantastic stonework and lovely features. Inside, only the pictures can describe the intricate details created by the artists who adorned the property. On the ground floor there are four rooms and an imposing marble staircase that leads to a further six rooms on the second floor.

As you would expect of such a property the grounds are spectacular. One and a half hectares of land produce an abundance of fruit – mainly oranges – and olives that represent a commercial opportunity. The main feature at the rear of the house is a 400 year oak tree – an incredible piece of history in itself and a magnificent feature.

For someone who wishes, it is possible to purchase the property renovated. Please contact us for price and details.
