This old farmhouse has its origin in the year 1890. Until just a few years ago, it belonged to the same aristocratic family who built it and used it as their summer residence.
The location is very private and panoramic. The views over the sea and the surrounding nature is stunning. Even though you enjoy perfect privacy, you are less than a kilometer from the nearest town Montallegro and the beach is 4 kilometers away.
The very solid house is around 360 sqm distributed over two floors. Downstairs you find the generous country kitchen, a lounge, a large bedroom currently used as storage, plus a bathroom. Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms, three lounges with sea view and 2 bathrooms. On top, a roof terrace. In the last year, a local architect has led the work with some remodeling and renovation of the property.
In front of the house, you find a gorgeous and spacious terrace and a pergola with a nice dining area. On this side of the property, the seaside, there are beautiful orchards and flower arrangements inserted into old stone walls.
The main part of the land consists of very well-maintained olive groves. In total, this area covers close to 8 hectares (almost 20 acres), with around 450 olive trees (which produce up to 1,000 liters of oil in a good year). Here are also around 23 citrus trees, around 30 almonds, 2 apricots, 4-5 figs, 3 pomegranates, 2 plum trees, and a peach tree – all in perfect order and in production. The current owner has an agreement with a local farmer to take care of the land, an arrangement that can be inherited by a new owner. The enormous rosemary hedge is worth mentioning. In addition, there are around 20 really impressive bougainvillas, giving the property a color also in the middle of the dry summer.
The property is sold fully furnished, and everything you see in the photos is included in the sales (also the grand piano). There is no immediate need for maintenance, the property is in very good condition.
The nearest town is Montallegro, located less than a kilometer from the property. The nearest beach (Bovo Marina) with 4-5 good restaurants is around 4 kilometers away. Would you like to keep a boat, the nearest marina is located in Siculiana, around 10 kilometers away. You find the luxurious golf resort Verdura Resort a golf court in Sciacca (Verdura) 30 minutes drive from the property.
The ancient and fascinating settlement of Heraclea Minoa with its suggestive greek theater and ruins dating back to the 6th century BC is around a 10-minute drive from the property. Actually, you can see it from the property itself.
