Set within an area of great natural beauty, this spacious home is situated at 450 m a.s.l and offers great views over the Adriatic sea and mountains. Within an area renowned for its food and wine the property is surrounded by many restaurants and vineyards.
The property has 3 large double bedrooms - one on the ground floor and two upstairs - each with their own bathroom. The largest bedroom remains quite independent and could be developed on two levels for an extra sitting room. There is an open-plan kitchen, complete with old-fashioned wood-heater, is linked to a dining area by an arch. The dining room has a large open fireplace. From here you pass to a large living room. Stairs lead down to the bathroom and bedroom beyond. This bedroom has a beamed ceiling and French windows overlooking the garden.
Upstairs, in addition to the two bedrooms there is a small study and an ante-bathroom with extra wardrobe space. This principal bathroom has a jacuzzi.
There are some out-buildings beyond the bedroom housing a large freezer and dryer. There is a gazebo with sea-views for al-fresco dining in the summer.
Beyond the garden there is a paddock with a stable; this land could alternatively be developed with a swimming-pool. The annexe has been completely restored externally.
The main house was rennovated in 2005 and requires some maintenance and repainting. Two small out-houses could be restored for sauna or fitness area.
Within a one-hour drive of Florence and two-hour drive of Venice, this area offers easy access to both beaches (40 mins. to coast) and skiiing in the Appenines, as well as excellent hiking and cycling tours. Many beautiful spots for river-bathing within 40 minutes and a range of public and private swimming-pools. Riding-school and golf 15 mins. There is a wide choice of country restaurants within 15 minutes of the house and less. This area is outside the main tourist areas in unspoilt countryside, but close to the cities of Forli and Cesena as well as Forlimpopoli with its annual food festival and many vineyards and small producers of speciality foods - a gastronomic paradise yet to be discovered by overseas visitors. There is an international summer music festival in nearby Ravenna and opera during the autumn/winter season in Cesena.
