Full Description

Casa Sentinella is a jewel of a house, made of raw earth. It is located in Casalincontrada in the province of Chieti, half an hour from the sea and the ski slopes of the Maiella National Park, 10 minutes from the historic centre of Chieti, shopping centres and a golf course. It enjoys a wonderful view of the Gran Sasso mountains and, in fact, it is on the site where a Roman garrison was once located, so it is a perfect vantage point to view the whole valley.

The land, measuring around 7000 square metres, includes a small forest of oaks and acacia trees, in which there is a "Yurt", a temporary dwelling for nomadic people, built by the owner during the restoration works. There are also eight century-old olive trees and various fruit plants.

The house has recently been restored with the construction technique called "massone", similar, in Europe, to 'the cob and the bauge' - it is very widespread in Abruzzo and Le Marche, areas where land contains a good percentage (40-50 %) of clay. This technique consists of the construction of buildings through the simple overlapping of small "loaves" of wet earth often mixed with straw. The resulting wall, once dry, is a continuous structure, compact and without cavities, thanks to the fusion of the single constituent elements.

The owner, in the realization of the restoration project, has adopted the criterion of maintaining the original soul of the building, and he has also increased the size of the property.

The house measures a total of ​​125 square metres, 35sqm. of external space, while its net surface is 77sqm. All bedrooms have dual air conditioning, Wi-Fi and TV.

Composition: entrance to living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and porch on the ground floor. A beautiful internal staircase leads to the first floor where we find two bedrooms with bathroom, panoramic terrace and loggia.

From the point of view of energy sources, the house is equipped with photovoltaic panels. Rainwater is collected in a tank for use in the garden.

It is currently successfully used as a guest house. Of course the property is sold including the business.
