Full description:

An attractive traditionally built 3-bedroom stone-built detached house (it just wants the stucco removing in order to fully reveal the beautiful stonework underneath), with another independent small stone house on offer. Located in an extremely convenient and prime position overlooking the Secchia Valley, the property is handy for getting to either the local township (it is within a few minutes easy walk from house to the centre of the main township of Villa Minozzo, where all of the civic and social amenities may be found, such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars etc), or for getting to the excellent skiing facilities that this area is renowned for.

Entry to the main house is via a tarmac driveway and onto a private forecourt, where there is ample parking. The front of the house has a wide paved area, over the full width of which are vines, providing not only excellent quality grapes (white, red and the sweet sultana grapes), but superb shade, keeping the house cool during the hot summer months with it’s leafy canopy. A beautiful chestnut double panelled door leads into an extremely large hallway (8ft x 18ft approximately). Paved in the traditional Italian tiles of the period the bright hallway leads through doors to either the kitchen (on the right) or the living room (on the left). Both of these rooms share the same general characteristics, in that they both show exposed beams (as does the rest of the main house with the exclusion of the hallway and the upper landing) and they are the same size (14ft x 14ft approx.) The kitchen is fully fitted and there is provision to use either gas or a wood-burning stove. At the end of the hallway and opposite to the stairs is the utility room. Approximately 8ft x 14ft, this room is plumbed for a washing machine and there is also an outlet tap for a garden hose. The marble staircase to the upper floor leads onto an enormous landing area which in turn leads into a large, fully fitted bathroom (with full-size bath and shower attachment) and the three bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are of comparable side to the kitchen and the living room downstairs (also 14ft x 14ft approx.), while the third bedroom (smaller in that it is approximately 12ft x 6ft) is currently being used as a studio. Leading from the third bedroom, through twin glass doors is a small balcony overlooking the beautiful scenery.

Throughout the house there is full double glazing and gas fired central heating, with radiators in all rooms and with the exception of minor decorating to suit the house is ready for immediate and instant occupation.

Externally, the house sits on its own small and fully enclosed grounds, with the prime garden area at the back and side of the house. Near to the main house (approximately 30ft away) there is a small ‘rustic’ house that forms part of the property. Originally, in a severely dilapidated condition the rustico has been fully renovated, with the addition of a completely new roof, new wiring, plumbing, plastering etc. Completely finished and renovated apart from some minor internal work, this small rustico provides, via separate stairs, two bedrooms, a large living area, a kitchen and a tiled bathroom and once completed would make an excellent rental apartment or separate living accommodation.

Located in an area of exceptional natural beauty and deep in the heart of the renowned ‘Parco Giganti’ (the National park of the Giant, so called because the skyline formed by the mountain ridge separating this part of Emilia Romagna with Tuscany looks like a giant man lying on his back and looking up at the sky), the property is very conveniently placed for either local activities or for those wishing to explore this fascinating part of Italy. Centrally placed, the main cities of Reggio Emilia, Parma, Modena and Bologna are only around an hour’s drive away. While for those looking to travel further afield, Milan, Florence and even Venice are all within two to three hours drive away. Even the golden beaches, off the Tuscany coast (Tuscany itself is only half an hours drive away) are only around one and a half hours drive away. For the winter enthusiast the ski resort of Febbio is only 15 minutes away, while for those looking for greater variety, there are no fewer than 5 other ski facilities all within half an hours drive away (including the famous Abetone ski resort which provides all year round facilities and has over 200 kilometres of ski slopes, though this resort is around an hours drive away). For the summer enthusiasts the area is exceptionally rich in natural beauty, historical character and panoramic grandeur, with all tastes, passions and sports being amply provided for, from eating (this area is renowned for its exceptional cuisine and high quality of food it produces) to mountain trekking and climbing, horse riding, golf, swimming…the list is endless.

An exceptional opportunity, early viewing of this property is highly recommended

About Appennino Properties, Emilia Romagna

Who We Are? is an association of ten highly trained professionals, all of whom have long experience of working within the Italian property market.

Conceived and started in 2005, these professionals have all combined their talents and resources to offer an unrivalled wealth of skills and expertise, allowing you the opportunity to realise and live your Italian dream.

This professionalism, along with detailed research of what appeals and motivates clients to buy in Italy, have allowed them to unite into a highly-trained and very focused specialist team who are able to offer an unrivalled range of superb quality properties.

Why us?

Extensive market research, focus groups and direct feedback from clients who have previously attempted to buy a home, have all identified that, whilst there are many Italian properties for sale, all offered by a multitude of Italian agents, the standard of the properties and (most importantly) the service received from these agents left much to be desired.

A common complaint was that the prospective buyer received extremely poor service, with inefficient (or even completely lacking) communication, insufficient information and a whole raft of unnecessary bureaucracy.

They have found that the process, instead of being an enjoyable and exciting experience, instead was full of stress, was unnecessarily complicated and ultimately resulted in it being far more costly than at first anticipated.

We are proud to say that at Appennino Properties we have changed all that and that we offer a service that is second to none.

•Firstly, we have simplified the whole procedure, removing all unnecessary paperwork and solving any problems that may arise.

•We take on the burden of any bureaucracy, smoothing the path for you and allowing you to concentrate on what is most important to you ? Finding your dream Italian home.

•We guarantee to provide you fast, efficient and accurate information, on request, and usually within 24 hours.

•We offer a COMPLETE service, and will happily provide you with any information requested.

•Generally, we can complete the transaction for you (from initial viewing and acceptance of your offer to the final signing) within four weeks and even sooner if required.

As well, to make things easy for you we also offer a service unique for property sales and the property market in Italy.

Generally, when buying an Italian property, when you have seen your dream Casa in the sun or your perfect country farmhouse, the starting point is the negotiated price (the price negotiated by the agent with the vendor). Once the price has been agreed then the process (and the costs) start.

Appennino Properties are happy to negotiate with you an INCLUSIVE and COMPLETE price. Because of the structure and professionalism of Appennino Properties, we are able to reach an agreement between you and the vendor, whereby ALL of the costs associated with Italian Property Sales (Notiao fees, Land Registry fees, Stamp due, Taxes, Translation Costs, Technical expenses etc.) are INCLUDED in the negotiated price

In other words you will only need to pay ONE price and ONE cost. So all that you have to worry about and do is:

•Choose the property.

•Negotiate and agree an all inclusive price if wanted

•Agree to a signing date for the property transfer and the final payment of the money.

•On the agreed date, you will sign the documents and the property and keys will be transferred to you without any other costs, worries or anything extra added!
