VILLA MANDORLA  € 245 000  EL660 Castelli 

Villa Mandorla is a spacious and modern three-bedroom, three-bathroom property, in a stunning setting, with an 8 x 4m swimming pool.  It enjoys stunning 360 degree views of majestic mountain ranges and of the gloriously lush Abruzzo countryside, as well as a glimpse of the Adriatic Sea.

The main living area is all on one floor and is composed as follows:
• Lounge 4.25m x 3.28m
• Lobby 3.75m x 1.65m
• Kitchen/dining room 3.90m x 5.02m
• Master bedroom 4.63m x 3.25m
• Lobby to master bedroom 1.40m x 1.71m
• En-suite to master bedroom 1.75m x 1.71m
• Bedroom 2 4.25m x 3.28m
• Bedroom 3 4.05m x 3.30m
• Shower room (hydro-massage shower) 3.30m x 2.25m
• Bathroom (full bath) 3.30m x 1.58m
• Balcony 6.10m x 1.64m
• L-shaped terrace, off Master bedroom, 70.74m2
• Fully tiled and double-glazed
• Gas fired central heating

There is an equivalent amount of space on the ground floor, currently used mostly as storage. One large room (7.67m x 5.00m) is tiled and painted and is used as a games room. The other spaces could potentially be used to add more bedrooms and bathrooms.  The area under the terrace gives a spacious car port with room for two cars. Behind this there is a very private gravelled area with barbecue.

The spacious garden is flat and has been beautifully landscaped by the current owners. It contains many plants, including olives, fruit trees and vines. 

The pool is 8m x 4m and has Roman-style curved steps at one end. The shallow end is 1.2m and the deep end is 1.8m. The pool is made of reinforced concrete with a liner and an edge of curved white marble. The liner is a tasteful sand colour.  The pool is surrounded by mature planting - oleander, lavender and lemon verbena. The view to the mountains has been retained, but the pool could easily be more screened if extra privacy is required.  A terrace of non-slip beige tiles surrounds the pool to allow plenty of space for sun beds.  Next to the pool is a garden with pomegranates, bottle brush plants, rosemary, euonymus and 2 fig trees. These give a lovely shady area between the pool and the Villa.  The pool has underwater lights for night-time swimming.

It is the awe-inspiring views from Villa Mandorla that make this home uniquely beautiful and uplifting to the spirit.  The star of this panorama is the majestic Corno Grande, the highest peak in the Apennine range at 2,912 metres. There are views over the picturesque little villages of Arsita and Colledoro, and also of the lovely historic town of Atri.  When the weather is clear there is a glimpse of the Adriatic from the front balcony.
Sunsets behind the mountains or dawns seen from the front balcony can be magnificent, as are the rainbows that often accompany a shower of rain.  Also, as the air is so clear and unpolluted, the stars are so much brighter and the Milky Way is easily visible. The terrace makes a marvellous place for astronomy.

The unbelievable views and wonderful position on the edge of the National Park of Gran Sasso-Laga make the Villa the perfect home or investment property for nature lovers, artists, photographers, sports enthusiasts or people who just want to wind down after a hectic working life.

Villa Mandorla is only 2 hours from Rome. An easy drive, via the spectacularly scenic motorway, or hop on the coach which stops at a nearby village and be whisked to the most romantic capital city in the world while relaxing and marvelling at the views.
