Constructed in the mid-1800, this suggestive old farmhouse has recently been fully restored. It has a living area of 430 mq, a generous courtyard, and a garden under the rock in the back of the property. The latter two, are together 350 mq. To the property belongs 1.5 hectares of land.
The property is located around 4 kilometers from the town of Roccapalumba, and about the same distance from the town of Alia. A very nice detail is that the train station of Roccapalumba/Alia is only 800 meters from the property, and from here you have frequent trains both to Palermo (1 hour) and to Agrigento (1 hour). This allows for easy access from the airport of Palermo. You reach beaches in less than an hour, you have all conveniences in the nearby towns of Roccapalumba and Alia. You have the nice Agriturismo “Acqua di Palermo” with a restaurant just some 500 meters from the property.
When you enter the property, you will be amazed by the very suggestive rock behind the property. It is leaning over the property, giving an impression of protecting it from all evil. You enter the stone-covered courtyard through the gate, and you are completely in your own world.
The property is fully restored, and the spacious rooms are all accessible from inside the property. There is one exception though, the lovely room with ensuite bathroom on top of the courtyard entrance is reached by a gorgeous outside stair.
The renovation has been made with an eye on the historical nature of the property. The owner is an architect, you carried out the renovation for his own, personal use. This guarantees quality materials and quality work.
The 430 sqm living area is distributed over 11 rooms plus 3 bathrooms. Some of these rooms have the rock behind the property visible in the walls, a very nice detail. In a couple of rooms, you also have intact the memories of old times when they were used as stables – the old feed mangers that have been carefully restored.
The property is immersed in an agricultural landscape. Hilly, open views, with colors that change throughout the year. As in most of the more inland areas of Sicily, people are extremely welcoming and generous. Would you instead like to hear a bit of English, you are less than a half-hour away from Caccamo – a medieval mountain town, where you quite a few English and American people have chosen to buy properties.
This is truly a property to visit and to feel!
