Built in the 1700's, Villa Verde is a large 5 bedroom stone house set on 3.5 hectares of stunning olive groves. While the house is in need of restoration it is in good structural repair. Just minutes by car from the historic town centre of Arpino, the house is located in the Vignepiane contrada or suburb, which is famous for its prime olive and grape farmland that looks back over the town of Arpino. There are incredible panoramic views from both the home and the farm land. An older 2 storey stone house or 'rudere' is set close to the main home and currently houses farm machinery and a tractor on the ground floor. When restored this building could provide charming independent guest accommodation.
The main home is constructed of stone, which at a later stage has been fully rendered over and painted to its present green colour. Removal of this rendered layer would expose the classic stone Italian farmhouse exterior. The home's original dual stone staircase curves around the main entrance to the ground level, then reaching up to the first floor. The 2 floors of accommodation have a similar interior layout, consisting of an entrance hall room, a large main central salon from which the other rooms extend. All rooms are generously proportioned, and are light filled with gorgeous views. Most rooms have evidence of ceiling or wall frescoes.
The basement or cantina level the home is accessed from the home's rear and provides an additional 3 rooms.
2 private driveways provide access to the property. The first driveway leads directly to the main home, while the second might be dedicated to the second dwelling. There are approximately 3.5 hectares of prime olive groves with some 800 plus olive trees that will provide you with all the premium extra virgin olive oil you could wish for - with much more to sell. A few minutes drive along the same road brings you to a wonderful olive mill, which uses the traditional cold stone press to extract the highest quality olive oil. If working an olive farm isn't on your agenda there are many local farmers who will be pleased to work the land for you, organising every aspect from pruning of the trees to the harvesting and the pressing of the olives. A popular arrangement is for the farm owner to share the produce with the caretaker on a 50/50 basis.
