Wonderful property from the early 1800s on the slopes of Etna on the north-east side at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level, with a breathtaking view that descends from Etna to the sea and Taormina.
The property is a harmonious compendium between the main villa, the Palmento, the annexes, the warehouses, the pergolas and the outdoor spaces used to enjoy relaxing moments, surrounded by the fragrant garden. The main house is located on the first floor, and has 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a beautiful living room with large openings to the landscape and marble floors and original colored concrete tiles; the comfortable and functional kitchen. The wonderful terrace that surrounds it offers an amazing view on a landscape that looks like a painting. On the same level is the "oven house" serving the main house, inside which you can admire: the ancient kitchen with its copper pots, the stone oven, and the original roof made with a structure in wood and straw. On the floor below there is a small annex with an entrance, a bedroom and a private bathroom.
On the ground floor - in the central body of the main house - there is the millstone, with its lava stone arches, where you can admire the ancient and original tools for the wine-making process and the cellar with its original wooden barrels. On the same ground floor is the annex with an ancient kitchen, stone oven, and a large fireplace, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A large paved outdoor area completes the usability of the annex. Several warehouses and deposits with various surfaces complete the property. Outside we find a beautiful and large gazebo built with brick pillars and Sicilian tile roof, equipped with a lava stone barbeque and a third stone oven.
The garden surrounding the property, planted with citrus, apple and chestnut trees, measures about 6000 square meters, and gives the guarantee of absolute privacy. The land belonging to the property which measures about 6 hectares was a vineyard that can be replanted, and is completed by a grove of chestnut trees.
The nearest town is Piedimonte Etneo where you can find all the services of a city.
You can still hear the joy of family life during the summers, which gave way to the silence of the evening with the chirping of crickets and cicadas.
