It’s not easy to find a property to develop or share with just the right original buildings and set up. But we did it and in a delightful area as well! And so we now offer for sale a superb old farm with multiple buildings to renovate. Obviously one can restore for example just one or two units, and either leave or demolish the others. This is a delightful opportunity for a buyer looking to:
renovate and personalise in every possible way
buy with friends and develop for each their own home
create a retreat for yoga, mediation or education facility
start a countryside hospitality business
enjoy a strategic and delightful location
make use of very interesting renovation subsidies
This property consists of various stone buildings all located as a group with only short distances between them. They are located at the lower part of the land with easy access from the dead end gravel road.
The casa padronale, or main house, which was always the most important building. It is easy to recognise by its square shape and decorational strips of bricks on the outside. The ground floor still features very nice arches. In one of the top floor rooms remnants of a fireplace are visible. They used to harbour the living quarters of the farm owner. As the building is in bad condition it is not possible to enter. The roof has collapsed as well as the outside staircase and it needs a full renovation.
A casale, and farmhouse which on the ground floor harboured stables and on the top floor homes for the workers. In this case, as with almost every building of this type, it is possible to distinguish the central part which was the oldest. An external staircase, stable and second house were added on when the initial home became too small. A traditional woodover is situated beneath the original staircase with loggia at the backside. . This building is in a similar state and requires a full renovation as well.
The third building is square and 3 floors tall. It has an unusual ground floor with a double arch and in the between them a very nice column. Most likely also this space used to harbour livestock. The first floor was habitable space whereas the second floor was either a home or storage space. This building is structurally in a better shape but obviously still needs a full overhaul.
Behind the casale are the leftovers of a stable which over time has collapsed. It is possible to recuperate and reuse this volume. Next to the casa padronale a very large stable features a roof of more recent date. Structurally this building is in good condition. Again next to this stable sits a small ruin of which the purpose is not entirely clear.
5 Ha of gently sloping hills are included in the property. Breathtaking views can be enjoyed from anywhere. The land is divided between arable, meadow and woods. An big old stone well is situated at a higher part of the land.
The property is situated on the hills next to Monte Subasio at 2 km from the little Hamlet of Armenzano. It is one of the 8 villages located within the Regional Park of Monte Subasio .
