Full Description

On the fringes of the picturesque hilltop town of Gratteri, in the foothills of the Madonie National Park, Casa Leonarda is a detached, three bedroom house boasting over 160m2 of indoor space. The cherry on the casata is the wonderful view from its panoramic roof terrace, overlooking the surrounding rooftops and the green mountains beyond.


TWO HOUSES' WORTH OF SPACE

Originally a pair of split-level apartments, Casa Leonarda has now been combined into a single property on four floors. The unusual legacy of this is a double kitchen, one on the ground floor and one at the top, although there is plenty of room for a creative reconfiguration. The one thing you will certainly want to preserve is the antique bread oven built into the roof.


LOCAL CHARACTER AND TRADITION

There are a pair of huge rooms with balconies, one of which is currently a bedroom and the other a lounge. These feature some superb examples of the locally-produced majolica tiling for which Sicily has long been renowned. Elsewhere are three more large spaces, two and a half bathrooms, and a distinctive curved stairwell which lends great character.


CASH IN ON RESTORATION GRANTS

Renovation work will be needed on the property, for a start an overhaul of its plumbing and wiring. The fascias could certainly use a freshening up, as could the bathrooms and roof. However, with the Italian 'bonus' system still in place, it's possible to perform part of this work for discounts of 50%, and in some cases even to recover more than your outlay in tax credits.
