Casa Sandra is located on one of Collecarino's quiet and peaceful small roads and occupies a triangular plot of land including an olive grove.
The house is on two levels plus an upper level terrace. On the lower level, the main front door leads into an entrance hall which accesses two large rooms, currently configured as a sitting room and a dining room. One of these rooms has a side entrance from the street, and opens down some steps and through an attractive archway into the kitchen. The kitchen in turn benefits from a back door into the garden.
A flight of stairs leads from the entrance hall to the upper level. Halfway up the stairs is a powder room and a door to the upper level terrace which enjoys valley views. On the upper level of the home there are two bedrooms and one smaller room which could converted into a bathroom to be shared by the two bedrooms.
The stairs continue upwards for a further short flight to reach a room currently used as a small bathroom but which would make an excellent laundry.
The property is on a sizable plot of land, most of which is olive groves although there are also mature trees and shrubs. There would be space for a swimming pool if desired.
There is excellent road access and it is possible to park outside the house.

ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Arpino, the birthplace of the Roman orator Cicero, 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.
