Sant'Angelo in Pontano
Good country road
Completely restored and modernised in 2004 this unique stone two bedroom house is located down a short council maintaned strada bianca 3km outside the increasingly sought after town of Sant Angelo in Pontano. The house is charming; set in a very private location, with wonderful views, and yet not isolated. Built over three floors into the hillside, it nestles into the woods , with an open aspect to the south and west. The windows and doors are new, timber, double glazed with external louvered aluminium shutters (that look just like the wood)
The house consists of two good sized double bedrooms, on the top floor, with a largish shower room and wc between them.
On the middle floor the living room has a chimney for a wood burning stove and dual aspect windows overlooking the hills and Penna San Giovanni. There is a large stone terrace off this floor, with space for a table and chairs for 6 and a swing seat. On the lower floor the good sized new kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, microwave, sink, dishwasher and fridge with icebox is very practical and easy to use. There is space for a table for six. Directly off the kitchen there is a terrace for breakfast (the morning sun arrives here).
There is a small utility room with washing machine and the boiler. There would be space in here for a tumble dryer if required.
The swimming pool is 3m x 5m, 1.4m deep. It is a reinforced concrete construction, with a liner. It was built by a reputable firm in 2006. It has a completely private terracotta tiled terrace with lovely views over the hills and mountains.
All the plumbing and wiring were installed in 2004. The roof was completely removed, insulated and reinstalled with original tiles and beams. All the sanitary fittings were new at this time.
The central heating is gas, via an underground tank. It is a combi style boiler giving instant hot water.
There is a septic tank, but mains water and electricity.
The nearest neighbour is about 150m away.
