Just €13k for this seriously rustic little Stone Town House for Sale in Italy — Castelbottaccio, Molise.
Needing complete restoration, for superb ROI potential. 3 hours to Rome, 2 hours to Naples, 2 hours to the stunning Adriatic beaches of Pescara…. it’s a good location deep in the ultimate heart of #Italy.
This is an interesting little property & while it needs complete #restoration, it’s got lovely bones to build on. After all, with a carved stone doorway like this, it should be restored, right? The joy of a property like this is that while there is much to restore, this is where it’s easiest to put in plumbing & electrics without fear of compromising the existing glories.. because, honestly, there’s not much glory here — except for that doorway. What you do have here is potential & simplicity.
With a fireplace to be finished, there’s a balcony on the kitchen & lovely views. It’s perfect as your private little vacation home in Italy; simply lock up & leave!
This is a great time to buy a house in Italy. Prices are down during the winter season & stock is available. It’s pretty much a buyers market, as you can see from this price.
It has 2 bedrooms & it may or may not actually have a bathroom at this point, but guess what? If there isn’t one, you can put your bathroom in the tower! That’s right, this dandy little property has a room in the building’s tower. Now, how cool is that?
The 2 bedrooms, kitchen / living room are over several elevations, with interesting turns & small stairs. The balcony in the kitchen is a sweet feature.
Suggesting nearly 100m² on these miscellaneous elevations, there is much charm in the vaulted & beamed, whitewashed ceilings, the stone walls, classic tomette floors calling out for cleaning & polish; window frames desperate for paint & curiously vaulted niches & thick plaster & stone doorways. Imagine this cleaned & painted, with & it’s arches & corners illuminated with discrete, hidden lighting.
You can spend a lot of money on the “#ristrutturazione”, or just a little, or do a bit at a time. We figure €15-25k max could turn this into your charming holiday hideaway in Italy. Granted it won’t be your luxury holiday home in Italy, but it can be a super offering for summer vacation property in Italy rental income. The property includes 2 further cellars of nearly 30m² as well, big bonus there.
Castelbottaccio is a lovely, ancient, historic, medieval town, popular with tourists seeking the tranquil retreat. With the town’s amenities just outside the door, it’s friendly & thriving, if not quiet & a bit enchanting, thanks to its spectacular views out over the surrounding hills & far off mountains.
