Ancient farmhouse for sale in Scillato
Along the main street of the Madonie village of Scillato is the elegant entrance to this magnificent property, a historic farmhouse with a large private park. A verdant, tree-lined path, embellished with precious Washingtonia palm trees, leads to the period villa, which is surrounded by a natural park of about one hectare, which is partially used for orchards.
The farmhouse, which dates back to the early 1800s, stands on a previous building from the 1700s and enjoys two entrances, one that opens to the entrance hall and a second to the kitchen. The villa, which is in need of renovation, is spread over four levels: ground floor, first floor, a small mezzanine with service rooms and a charming turret from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the valley.
The interiors, evocative of past eras and full of charm and atmosphere, have magnificent, finely frescoed vaulted ceilings, and terracotta and cementine flooring with an elegant geometric design.
On the ground floor there are large living rooms and rooms, a bathroom with bathtub, a beautiful open staircase with Billiemi marble steps, a precious masonry kitchen with original majolica and two practical utility rooms. Climbing the stairs, on the first floor there is a large entrance hall, a living room, a study, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. From the living room, you can also access a lovely balcony with a panoramic view.
From the second floor, a staircase leads to the service rooms and the beautiful turret of the farmhouse, with a ceiling with wooden beams, frescoed walls and a breathtaking view that opens onto the valley and the sinuous outline of the Madonie.
