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.
