In the green hills behind Cefalu, this must be one of the most spectacular properties available! The views are breathtaking in all directions and the silence complete. In the summer, you enjoy the sunset in the sea outside Palermo.
The land is 37,213 sqm (9.2 acres), and the planning permission is for the main villa of 150 sqm (1,615 sqft), a stable – which could also be built as a guest house – of 70 sqm (753 sqft) and a pool.
The architect has been striving to create a property that gives a village feeling, adding irregularities with separate, but still united parts. In front of the house is the pool, visible through the property’s winter garden when you enter with your car, designed to create a feeling of being on a sandy beach when you enter the property.
The projected house has got a very generous kitchen/living room with an open fire. Here is a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. From the wide panorama window, you enjoy fantastic sea views. Here is also a glass door leading directly out to the pool area.
A very attractive winter garden, with views in all directions, semi-separates this part from the other sleeping area. In this part, you have two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a walk-in closet. Also here, large windows and a separate terrace facing the sea view. It is all connected but designed to have a bit private feel in this part, as it could be used by guests or teenagers.
Inside, there are small level differences between the various parts, creating an interesting and irregular feeling.
The stable can also be converted into a guesthouse with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen/living room. Also here the views are splendid, and since it is located a bit from the main house, it enjoys privacy.
It is projected for energy from solar panels and underfloor heating and cooling in the property. Water will come from a private well, plus a system for collecting and storing rainwater – a completely independent solution.
As for today, the road leading down to Cefalu is around 20 minutes. But an extra bonus here is that as part of the work, it is projected to open an old road on the property that will cut the distance to Cefalu in half!
Please note that it is very difficult to find land where it is possible to get planning permission on this very beautiful location. And even if you technically can, the procedure is long and quite expensive.
