We are pleased to offer this extremely spacious detached colonial house with lovely covered loggia, separate haybarn and further oven building, which could be developed into a lovely B&B or rental accommodation, sitting in about 1000m2 of land in the hamlet of Garliano di Cortina, some 5km from Strada in Casentino and all amenities and just over the hour from Florence. The property, originally built in the 1600’s, currently provides some 14 rooms with 4 bathrooms and features a number of characteristic features including open fireplaces, and exposed beam ceilings. The main house benefits from a large covered loggia with entrance into the ground floor. There is a second external stairway leading to the first floor and internal stairs to the second. The haybarn provides accommodation over two floors, with separate entrances on both ground and first floors. This is a very spacious property, ready for customisation to suit individual requirements. There is the possibility to purchase further wooded land if desired.
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.
