Ground floor: a huge sitting/dining room with a big open log-burning fireplace, a kitchen and a large covered porticoed terrace with great arches opening to the garden.
Upper floor: currently has five rooms (most opening on to wrap-around balconies) plus one bathroom, but it would be easy to convert one of the rooms into a second bathroom. There are presently unrestored attic rooms with dormer windows. There is a large separate 70 sq.mt. outbuilding that could be restored and converted into further living accommodation if desired.
The garden has ample space for a swimming pool (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). A beautiful vine covered pergola provides shade for al fresco meals. The house is set in around one hectare (10,000 sq.mt.) of land and is approached through a gated entrance and up a sweeping driveway through the olive groves.
Casa Torretta is a few minutes drive outside Arpino, a medieval hilltop town with shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and services, only ninety minutes from Rome and Rome’s main airport. Rome’s second airport at Ciampino is even nearer, around an hour’s drive. The house requires extensive modernisation and some restoration.
