It has good street access with nearby free car parking and is built on three levels, each of 65 sq.mt., plus a roof terrace with spectacular panoramic views across the valley to the mountains. Veroli is a steeply sloping hill-top town, and therefore the gradients on the streets mean that it is possible to have street entrances into a number of rooms on different levels!
The main entry door, a few steps above street level, takes you into a fine entry hall with magnificent centuries-old stone arches, lit by up-lights set into the floor, behind which is currently positioned a grand piano. This entry hall leads through into the dining area and modern well-equipped kitchen. There are two small balconies, one overlooking the cobbled street and one overlooking the property's little courtyard garden. There is also a small bathroom and a little lounge seating area under the stairs.
There are two flights of stairs, one leading up to the bedrooms and one curving down to a further living area. The lower floor is an open-plan living area, currently configured with a fine home theatre as well as sitting and study areas. There is a large stone-faced, fully-functional open fireplace. A glass door with decorative wrought-iron security screen opens out into the courtyard garden, which has its own separate street entrance and will, with the addition of a little landscaping, constitute a delightful little green oasis. Here too, there is a small bathroom and a store room / laundry area, also with street access.
The upper floor has two bedrooms, one with an adjacent dressing room, and one with a large walk-in wardrobe. There is a large bathroom with both fully tiled bath and shower, and a spacious linen cupboard. All the doors on this floor are beautifully decorated with a painted floral design - each door highlights a different colour matching the decor of that room and emphasised by the colour of the door handle and key - the effect is immensely charming.
A final flight of stairs leads to the roof terrace with its panoramic views. Already a comfortable size for a dining table and chairs, the owner has however obtained permission to extend the terrace over the remaining part of the property, effectively doubling its size, so this will be a future option for any purchaser.
All utilities are connected and the property is in an excellent state of repair. The floor on the lowest level is stone-flagged; the upper two levels have beautifully polished wood floors. All built-in furnishings and almost all the furniture are being included in the sale price. Truly a property ready for immediate occupation by the purchaser.

VEROLI AND THE CIOCIARIA
Veroli predates the Roman Empire, being founded as an Ernici town with city walls built in Cyclopan style. In the historical centre, it is possible to see the ancient Roman walls supporting the large terrace on which the Cathedral of St. Andrea now stands. The Basilica dedicated to St. Maria Salome, Veroli's patron saint, is famous for its Holy Stairwell similar to the ones in Jerusalem and in the Church of St Giovanniin Laterano in Rome.
Veroli is at the heart of the historical area known as the Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that lies south of Rome but north of Naples, situated inland in the hills in the heart of Italy.
The Ciociaria region is within easy reach of both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day's shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter drive brings you to the charming beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of the summer. And at the other extreme of temperature, although Veroli itself is temperate, an hour's drive brings you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked, both by tourists and by those foreigners in search of an Italian home, in favour of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely an unspoilt gem with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A home or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Veroli, Arpino, Alatri or in the rolling countryside that surrounds them, will afford you a setting where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes journey from central Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
