The property, parts of which date back to the 1700s, has been lovingly restored by local artisan builders using the old stones, handmade tiles and wooden beams found within the property, creating a charming and luxurious villa with all modern conveniences. The owners started the restoration project 14 years ago, with all the attention to detail necessary to ensure that the restoration followed the original design of the buildings. Now the three restored buildings have the simple rural concept of the original layouts, but with a more efficient use of the space and structural soundness.
After the seismic events of 2016, the owners decided an important structural review was needed to understand and ensure the future stability of the buildings. The outcome was to reinforce the buildings, under the supervision of a Structural Engineer, with the insertion of a full metal reinforcement under the skin of the structure. The three structures now have the highest level of earthquake protection for restored buildings.
The buildings are positioned on the higher part of the estate which covers 10,000 square metres of rural land. The buildings are surrounded by established gardens and hedges, including an ancient olive tree that is more than 70 years old. The swimming pool is situated in these beautiful gardens, providing amazing views across the valley to the mountains.
Casa Principessa has an established, successful rental history during the European Summer period, delivering an average annual income of Euro 24,000. More information about the rental prospects can be found at casa-principessa.com.
The property is composed of:
This main building is positioned between the other two buildings, and is the main residence. It comprises three levels and is set on the side of the hill, allowing entrance via both the ground and first levels of the surrounding terraced garden.
The highlight of this building is the master bedroom, located on top floor. This top level, with a cathedral ceiling, is totally dedicated to this bedroom, which opens into a stylish ensuite bathroom with a large modern bath, walk-in shower, toilet and bidet.
On the first floor level are two more bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet, and a large living area with access to the back garden.
The ground floor level includes a separate kitchen and dining room, with access to a vine and wisteria covered pergola area ideal for outdoor dining. This level also includes a large living room with an open fireplace to relax in front of, on those colder days.
The Pool House
This two-level building is the smallest of the three. The upper level has a good-sized bedroom with large built-in storage cupboards. With access from the parking area, is a 200 year old wood-fired antique bread/pizza oven, fully restored and functional.
The ground level includes a large laundry and pool storage room with bathroom. Next to the laundry is a separate storage room for garden tools and the water-tank and pump.
This building includes two levels plus an attic. In terms of square metres it is bigger than Building A (the main house) and has been completed to a builders finish (only the structure and externals) and needs to be completed. The completion can be developed as one big residential home or divided into smaller units for business proposals. Plans are available for the finishing of this building from the architect/engineer who managed the original restoration.
