Positioned above the main piazza in the 'Arco' district of beautiful Arpino, Casa Angelina has an enviable location being just moments from the centre of town but elevated to ensure spectacular views.
Built in the 1700's the house has been fully restored and was renovated in 1985. The owners commissioned a local carpenter to build and fit high quality customised wooden furniture that will remain with the home when sold. All of the hand-made internal doors feature stained glass panels and there is an abundance of built-in storage throughout the home.
On the street level this property features a large garage, a separate cellar as well as an amenities room with 2 water storage tanks. Stone stairs lead up to the first level entrance to the house, where an entry foyer moves onto the home's main living areas and a guest bathroom.
The kitchen features a wood beamed ceiling and wooden cabinets with granite bench tops, a gas hob, a stainless steel fridge and dishwasher as well as custom-built banquet seating and table for informal dining. The adjoining living room and formal dining room is spacious and elegant with gorgeous views from every window.
Comfortable wooden stairs lead past library shelving and onto the 2nd floor bedroom level, stylishly floored throughout with oak parquet. The wide hallway features a custom built display & storage credenza as well as a series of useful cupboards.
Two double bedrooms and 1 single are located at the front of the home ensuring fabulous views and good natural light. The spacious master bedroom has built-in mirrored wardrobes and the other 2 bedrooms have each been fitted with customised furniture. An attractive bathroom leads on to a storage room, cleverly concealed by a stained glass door.
A few more steps lead up to the sunroom. Fitted with more custom built storage cabinets, this room would make a wonderful study or guest bedroom. French doors open onto the roof terrace which is partially covered, ensuring it can be enjoyed all year round.
The views from the terrace are incredible. From this vantage point it's possible to watch all the activity in the piazza while also looking beyond to the picturesque roof tops and church steeples of Arpino, the valleys and mountain ranges in the distance. There is space enough for a BBQ, a dining table and water is connected allowing easy care for any plants you may wish to cultivate.
The house is offered with all furniture included and the asking price is negotiable.

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.
