This spacious 5 bedroom colonial style stone built detached house with annexes, and almost 25 acres of land including 5 acres of vineyard/olive grove, is located in the hamlet of Strada in Casentino, forming part of Castel San Niccolo, some 8km north of Poppi and 60km to the east of Florence.
The property provides ample accommodation over two floors and a basement and is laid out as follows:
Lower ground: Large cantine divided into 5 rooms.
Ground floor: Covered loggia leading to entrance, kitchen with fireplace, living room, 2 bedrooms and bathroom.
First floor: 3 further bedrooms and storage room as well as a loft area.
The property which is completely habitable with roof having been recently renovated and utilities renewed, also benefits from an annexe of some 60m2 as wood store, oven and agricultural equipment storage and a further annexe of some 32m2 over two floors as drying rooms for grain. The property has been partially renovated although it would benefit from the installation of central heating, has superb panoramic views, and sits in some 10 hectares (24.7 acres) of land, of which 2 hectares (4.9 acres) is a vineyard/olive grove. This is a lovely property within easy reach of all amenities and ideal for further development into large family home.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
