Casa Rustica is a traditional house with accommodation on one floor and with the possibility of connecting to a second floor room in order to enlarge the living space. Although it appears a little run-down at the moment, it could become a wonderful home.
Living space: The main accommodation is on one floor providing a lounge, large kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There is an additional room on the same floor, which could be used as hobby room, or converted into an en-suite for the master bedroom, connecting it with the living space. In addition, there is scope to create an additional bedroom on the upper floor.
Permission has been given to build an extension which will give the access to the top floor via a staircase to the rear of the property. Or it is possible to insert an internal staricase, reducing a little bit the living space but keeping restoration cost down.
Opposite the house is an old stone building, currently used as a shed. This building could be renovated, using traditional materials to provide storage or it can be knocked down to give more space and “air” to the house, using the perimeteral wall as ridge beam for a patio area. On the back there are two others small and “cheap” outbuilding which will give more “air” to the house once knocked down.
Outside: The house is well positioned, facing the sun and with amazing mountain views. The property is set in a lovely plot of land of approximately 1000 sqm which will make it an extremely manageable garden. There is short private driveway, accessed directly from the public road.
This house makes the perfect “lock up and leave” holiday home, with its extremely manageable plot of land and its Italian “cottage” feeling.
The property is serviced with water and electricity. The septic tank needs to be brought up to modern standards.
The buildings are structurally sound. The interior decoration is in need of updating and refurbishment. The main house is stone built, and has been well maintained and the roof has been recently replaced.
“Due to our Ltd “Article of Association” and experience we are able, also, to offer you a “Property Search Service” (“Feasibility study” (art. 14 comma 1 DPR 207/2010)), giving our professional support when you buy properties from estate agents, and deliver a “built to order” project.

a) “As is” analysis with definition of Architectural, Geological, Bureacratic & Economic constraints;
b) Renovation/building work specification (what is possible to achieve, do’s & don’ts, cost, technical & landscape constraints, etc.);
c) Work specification analysis with alternative solutions specification;
d) Definition of environmental and landscape constraints (D.Lgs 42/04 e ssmmii) with renovation/building work definitiion (do’s & don’ts)
