A spacious, comfortable and well-presented country house offers the following:
Covered front entrance which is large enough for a table and chairs. The present owners use this space as an outdoor dining space in the spring, summer and autumn months.
Once inside the house you will find a good size kitchen with double aspect windows which look out onto both gardens. The gas cooker is connected to mains gas. The kitchen also enjoys an open fireplace. Next door to the kitchen is a large dining room with a woodburner. Double glazed windows look out onto the garden. There is a good sized lounge which the current owners use as a den and music room. This could also be used as a downstairs bedroom. Opposite the lounge is a bathroom. The ground floor also has a large laundry/utility room which currently houses a washing machine, iron and board, spare fridge-freezer and general storage. It also has a sink and running water. There is also a large gymnasium on this floor (this could also be used as a cinema room) and a study/office with double glazed doors that opens onto a garden.
On the first floor there are 3 large bedrooms and a smaller bedroom which could be converted to a further bathroom. There is also a bathroom and a substantial second lounge and study/office. One of the double bedrooms enjoys an open fireplace, perfect in the winter months. Another of the rooms has a lovely private terrace and the master overlooks a fruit garden, meadow and forest. There is a further room with small balcony which the current owners use as a office, this could be used as a further bedroom/study/art studio.
The main lounge boasts a large marble working fireplace and magnificent views of the Majella mountains and local village. There is also a large terrace which is perfect to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and to watch the sun set behind the mountains.
The house itself is enjoys full central heating and the owners have a modern condensing boiler which means there is constant hot water but is very efficient and cost effective. The house comes with an open barn and around 3 acres of land (some of which is a forest with a brook) and a beautiful meadow and enjoys a tranquil countryside position. The forest is perfect if you want to collect your own wood for the fires in the house if you wish to be a little self-sufficient. The land also enjoys various fruit and nut trees which are enjoyed between the spring and autumn months. Of course there is lots of space for veggie patches, chickens and horses!
This property is only around 2 minutes from the local village which has 2 supermarkets, doctors and pharmacy, dry cleaners, florist, hairdressers, hardware store, butchers, post office, restaurants and a bar. A bigger supermarket and other medieval and market towns, restaurants and pizzerias lie less than 10 minutes away
