The house has reasonably good access and is located about 5km from a medieval walled town with shops and restaurants. The final portion of the road is a shared private dirt track, relatively flat and about 1km in length. There is one difficult turn but the access is overall quite good and reaches right to the house with lots of parking.
There are 2 other residences close by but Casa Leonardo is the main house and has most of the land and the road itself, although the other houses have a right of way along the road, up until about about 80 m from the house. You are not overlooked even though there is a house attached at a corner.
There is enough land for a pool and the house has great views back down the valley.
The house itself was in habitable condition until we spotted that a roof tile had moved. There are wooden floors, a large Tuscan fireplace and lots of original features. There is a recent bathroom and overall the house just needs light restoration and redecoration. The roof is of the traditional stone type and is in need of cosmetic attention, however, there is a layer of waterproof felt.
There are two barns near the house and a small chapel on a piece of land above.
The house has water and electricity already connected but has been abandoned for about 4 years and so the electrics have been cut off. The water is excellent, from a private water source and so there are no difficulties there. The water pressure is amazing even in the high Summer.
This is a great opportunity to buy a traditional farmhouse with land, views and outbuildings in habitable condition at a very competitive price. Unfortunately, houses like this one are becoming very difficult to find.
