This lovely family home is situated in the picturesque medieval village of Appignano. Originally an old flour mill, the house was substantially renovated in 2011 by the current owners.
The ground floor contains a spacious open-plan lounge and kitchen, and adjoins the studio/music room which has French windows leading out onto the large balcony. From this side of the property, there is an spectactular view of the Gran Sasso mountains. The downstairs is accessed by an entrance hall, and there is also a bathroom. A new internal staircase leads up to the four bedrooms, one with a small ensuite bathroom, and a second family-sized bathroom. The upstairs can also be accessed by an external staircase to the front of the property where there is also a balcony.
The property has double-glazed windows throughout and air-conditioning units were recently installed in three of the bedrooms. There is mains gas central heating throughout the property and an open log fire in the lounge. Outside steps lead down to the easily-maintained patio garden, two cantinas, and a large workspace underneath the balcony.
Appignano is well situated for both the coast and the Apennine Mountains. The local market towns of Bisenti and Castiglione Messer Raimondo, both about 6 km distant, have supermarkets, restaurants, chemists, banks, and most other necessary facilities. Pescara, on the coast and a 45-minute car journey away, is a bustling, modern city and port, and the airport has flights to several European destinations. There are good local schools for all age ranges.
Appignano is a wonderful village to live in both as a resident or as a holiday homeowner. The property is a very short distance from the friendly village bar: a hub of social life, where you can eat excellent pizzas as well as enjoying a range of local wines and refreshing Italian beers.
