- Largely restored 100 sq.mt. stone house, nearly ready for occupancy
- Adjacent unrestored 260 sq.mt. ruined stone house can be restored at leisure
- Combined property will create an amazing home with spectacular panoramic views
- Very good road access
- Peaceful tranquil country setting but only c.10 minutes drive from the town of Roccasecca
- Possibility of creating a huge roof terrace
- Space for a swimming pool if desired
- Set in 1,000 sq.mt. of land planted with olive trees
The property is just above the little hamlets of Villafelice and Folchetti; you drive through the little piazza, up past some lovely residential homes and then further up to where there are four stone houses - one completely restored, the one that is for sale which is nearly restored, and then two unrestored stone houses, one immediately adjoining the property for sale. The area is just lovely with spectacular views; the houses are set among olive groves.
The nearly restored property has, at present, on the upper floor, an entrance hall, a large living/dining room with French doors and a balcony, and a kitchen. The lower floor has a very large area that could be a great master bedroom and dressingroom, and also a bathroom. Opening off the stairs is a service room and laundry. The work remaining to be done on this property is largely cosmetic - the structural work has all been completed - and consists of fitting out the kitchen and bathroom, putting in internal doors, installing a hot water boiler and radiators (the plumbing for which is already in place) and painting the internal walls. The house will then be ready for immediate occupancy.
The restoration has been carried out to a high standard and reflects the beauty of the old stone house.
The unrestored stone house (the 'rudere') is two storey and larger than the restored house, so you could create as many bedrooms and bathrooms in it as you want - also other rooms - a study, a TV room, etc. If you put a flat roof on the rudere, you could use the roof to create a magnificent terrace opening off the living room of the restored house with sweeping panoramic views.
The restored house is circa 100 sq.mt. and has an asking price of ¿95,000; the ruin is around 260 sq.mt. with an asking price of ¿30,000. The two houses are owned by different persons. There is approximately 1,000 sq mt of land planted with 30 olive trees which is the property of the owner of the ruin.
There is very good street access off a dead-end public road, so the property is guaranteed to be quiet and tranquil. However the nearby town of Roccasecca with its shops, restaurants, train station and all facilities is only around 10 minutes drive away.
This is a unique opportunity and has the potential to be a truly outstanding home.

ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Arpino is one of the major medieval hilltop towns in the area of Italy called 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 Arpino itself is temperate, less than 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 Arpino, Veroli, 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.
