Full description:

This prestigious house, with large garden, is located 13 km away from the medieval city of L’Aquila and 8 km from the Roman amphitheatre of Amiternum.

The property is in the small picturesque village of Scoppito (300 residents) in a hilly uncontaminated environment. It is immersed in the dry Mediterranean climate, at the border of the Gran Sasso National Park, 750 m. a.s.l.

The house was originally an old barn, built in the XVIII century, and belonged to a noble family. It has recently been refurbished to meet modern standards and legal requirements including new electrical wiring, plumbing, insulated walls and solar power for the production of hot water (“B” energetic standards).

It’s arranged on two levels totalling a living space of 145 m2 plus a 65 m2 cellar, with a front courtyard leading to the two entrances. There are also two balconies overlooking the garden.

Internal accommodation includes 4 bedrooms, with wooden beamed ceilings, and 3 bathrooms, one of which has a bathtub decorated with mosaics in Gaudi-style.

There is a large sitting room with fireplace and vaulted ceiling, and a dining room with adjoining built-in kitchen made in local precious stone, with “Castelli” bespoke tiles and maiolic stove using wood and providing central heating to the entire house (in addition to the gas-fuelled one).

Chestnut doors and windows are framed with local stone.

The main portal dates back to the 18th century and also the coats of arms displayed on the façade certify the authenticity of the building.

The wide garden (200 m2) hosts a number of fruit trees and rose bushes. There is also a sheltered area with open space, wooden oven and stone benches where you can sit and enjoy a meal in front of a breathtaking view over the mountains.

This property is ideal if you want to escape from busy cities and relax in the countryside and have easy access to nearby amenities.

It is just over one hour's drive from Rome and its international airport, 100 km from the Adriatic beaches and 150 km from the Tyrrenian ones. Skiing is only 36 km away in the Apennine mountains.

What we do for you

We help you realise your Italian property dreams by providing exceptional, friendly and personal service. This is delivered in the selection of suitable properties to meet your initial brief, followed by arranging property viewings. Our network of specialists will guide you throughout the sales cycle with financial, translation and legal services until purchase completion. We aim to make the whole process both enjoyable and stress free!

An optional, post sales property management package, provides ease of mind while you adjust to your new culture and environment. We are always focused on your priorities and needs.

Our properties

We work with key residential and licensed agencies in Italy. Each of our associates brings to us a large and varied portfolio of properties. This allows us to provide you with the widest selection of properties in the Regions of Abruzzo and Molise and across all price ranges.

We market these properties on our website, Rightmove and social media channels. This gives them exposure to both a UK and worldwide audience. From a holiday home on the Adriatic coast to a permanent house in the historic town of Penne, we can find your ideal property. We can also suggest restoration projects and land allowing you to build your own.

Our services

We promote property for sale in Abruzzo and Molise on behalf of our network of Italian estate agents, all of whom are registered with the FIAIP (Federazione Italiana Agenti Immobilliari Professionali), which is the industry’s governing body. This ensures that all documents and the final contract, in relation to your purchase, will fully comply with Italian laws and provide you with complete protection.

We also market property on behalf of private property owners who may wish to deal with us directly for ease of language and locality. One of our local colleagues can visit the property to take photographs and prepare a property description, if required. Once again, the contract will be overseen by an FIAIP agent, ensuring peace of mind.

Once you decide to purchase a property and contact us, our sales team will analyse your detailed property requirements before conducting a thorough search of all the properties that might suit. The next stage is normally a trip to Abruzzo and Molise, not only to view a selection of these properties, but to relax and enjoy the local ambience. This is a vital part of the purchase process as the area will become an important feature in your future life. Not only do we advise on property viewings but we also facilitate the entire viewing trip with recommended places to stay and areas to explore.

Once a property is decided upon, we leverage our local network of professionals to assist you through the process of obtaining tax certificates, opening bank accounts, validating property deeds and local planning consent, through to the necessary translation of documents and obtaining the best possible currency rates for the purchase transaction. We can even put you in touch with companies specialising in Italian mortgages, if required.
