As it is structurally restored, Casa Portico al Mare will be completed with heating, plumbing and electrical systems. The exterior of the house is finished in brick. The house is at the stage where you can still select underfloor heating, an alternative energy system, beamed or vaulted ceilings or maintenance-free windows.

Casa Portico al Mare is right-sized. At 215 sqm. it's big enough but not too big. The house has three floors...there's a cantina floor which can be used as a recreation space, a wine cellar, a technical area, laundry or a spare bedroom or two. The main floor, or ground floor of the house is a big open space...a blank canvas that you'll design. You can do an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room. The window openings are all big and the light just pours in. There are access points from this open space to the grand portico. The first floor can easily accommodate 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. There are high ceilings with beams, more big windows and a great view from every room.
The views from Casa Portico al Mare are as you'd imagine. Lovely views of the Adriatic Sea with the valley and rolling hills and fields between the house and the sea. The house has easy access along a town road. There is just one neighboring house, a local Italian family that are year-round residents. For a coastal property, Casa Portico al Mare has a surprising amount of privacy.
