If you've ever fancied living the Italian dream while running an established and successful holiday business, this could be just what you're looking for - because here in one single package is everything you'll need to move to Abruzzo and start a new life from Day 1.
On offer are two detached houses - and a swimming pool - on a large south-facing plot, with wonderful south-facing panoramic views from the mountains to the sea.
Currently operating as one of Abruzzo’s most successful holiday villa rentals businesses, this property offers the choice of continuing as an immediate income-generating business - or of using the houses simply as a permanent, private Italian residence or holiday home.
This unique property and business package comprises:
Main Property. Two bedrooms - both ensuite; dressing room/child's bedroom; sitting/dining room with open fireplace; fitted kitchen; laundry room; study/third bedroom; WC. Large covered verandah and south-facing sun terrace, with room for expansion if needed. The property enjoys the benefit of underfloor central heating and the main bedroom is air-conditioned. There's full satellite-TV cabling in the principal residence and both this - and rental property - have broadband internet access. Fitted solar panels on the property's roof substantially reduce electricity bills.
Rental Property. Rebuilt and converted from a 19th century barn are three villa rental units, each with warm-air central heating and air-conditioning; and each with its own private access and outside terraced seating area. Each is specifically designed for two people and comprises ground-floor sitting/dining/kitchen area and bathroom. A sleeping area is on a mezzanine. As with the main house, solar panels are installed. This property could easily be reconfigured to provide a single residence if required.
