Casa Giacchino enjoys a spectacular panoramic view of the valley to the distant mountains with the medieval town of Arpino that stands out on the top of the hill. This spacious 415 sq.m house, set in 2,000 sq.m of land, previously had a restaurant downstairs, while the owner’s accommodation occupied the two upper floors. The restaurant could be reopened and this configuration could continue, or alternatively the whole property could
become a family home or, as an additional option, you could explore different commercial uses for the lower floor.
The main living area on the middle floor, under the current layout, has a large living area with a wood-burning fireplace, a beautiful kitchen completely finished in wood, a separate dining area, additional seating areas, a guest bedroom and a bathroom . The French windows open from the bedrooms onto a long balcony where you can admire the magnificent views. The main entrance to the property is on this level with a drive that leads
through the private garden to the front door.
Attractive wooden stairs lead to the upper floor where the master bedroom is located, two more bedrooms, all with parquet flooring and two bathrooms. The French windows open from the bedrooms onto another long balcony, flooding the rooms with light from the view below. This level also leads to a large terrace with the same stunning views.
The 200 sq.m ground floor was previously the commercial headquarters and housed the commercial kitchen, pizza oven and warehouses. The private car from the street goes down to the restaurant entrance on this level with ample parking in the park for customers. The restaurant has accommodated 90 guests in a single open-plan room with additional seating in the summer in an adjacent tent. There are also bathrooms and toilets, previously for customers and staff, on this level.
The exterior of the house still requires partial plastering, but the house is ready for immediate occupation with all utilities connected. The olive groves on the hill below the house complete this delightful property. There would be ample space for a swimming pool (subject to the usual planning consents) adjacent to the tent / gazebo. It is situated in a charming residential area of Arpino called Collecarino, just outside the historic center. Two award-winning restaurants can be found in Collecarino itself and the shops, restaurants, cafes and services of Arpino are just a stroll or a couple of minutes away by car. The property has excellent road access; Rome city center and Rome’s main international airport can be reached in 90 minutes, while Rome’s second international airport is barely an hour away.
