Ancient dwelling located a few kilometres away from the built up area of Modica, renowned late baroque town of the "˜Val di Noto' (valley of Noto), which has been declared world heritage by the UNESCO. The estate is made up of a nearly 720 sq. m manor house, two 130 sq. m outhouses and of a nearly 2150 sq. m courtyard. The villa is a two-storied one. At the lower floor - which has a big entrance divided right in the middle by two arches - there is a large entrance hall, the library, a dining room with an imposing stony fireplace, the ancient kitchen - in disuse by now - with the wood baking oven. A linear stairs, situated in correspondence with one of the two arches of the entrance, gives access to the noble floor.

The renovation of this historical dwelling would determine an important increase of its market value constituting a good investment. The property could be also converted into an exclusive holiday accommodation.

ESTATE: sq. m 2150 nearly . An iron-wrought gate facing onto the provincial road gives access to the estate which is encircled by an high wall covered by hedges. On the two sides of the gateway alley there are the two outhouses and a part of the garden with a nice stony well. At the back of the villa expands the remaining part of the garden and beyond this last it extends the boundless countryside of Modica with its olive groves - thinning away as far as the eye can see - delimited by the typical low drywalls. There is also the possibility to acquire the adjacent land - nearly 7,500 sq. m - and that would consent the expansion of the existing garden and the creation of a swimming pool.
