Casa Giacchino enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the valley to the distant mountains with the medieval town of Arpino looms over the top of the hill. This spacious 415 sqm house, located in 2,000 square meters of land, previously had a restaurant on the lower floor, while the owner's accommodation occupied the two upper floors. The restaurant could be reopened and this configuration could continue, or alternatively the entire property could become a family home or, as an additional option, you could explore different commercial uses for the lower floor
The main living area on the middle floor, under the current configuration, enjoys a large living area with a wood-burning fireplace, a beautiful fully finished wooden kitchen, a separate dining area, additional seating areas, a guest room and a bathroom. The window doors open from the rooms onto a long balcony from which to admire the magnificent views. The main entrance to the property is located on this level with a driveway leading through the private garden to the front door.
Attractive wooden stairs lead to the upper floor where the master bedroom is located, two more bedrooms, all with parquet flooring and two bathrooms. The window-doors open from the bedrooms to another long balcony, flooding the rooms with light from the view below. This level also leads to a large terrace with the same stunning views.
The 200 sqm ground floor was formerly the commercial headquarters and housed the commercial kitchen, pizza oven and warehouses. The private car from the street descends to the entrance of the restaurant at this level with ample parking in the park for customers. The restaurant hosted 90 customers in a single open-plan room with additional seats in the summer in an adjacent marquee. There are also bathrooms and toilets, formerly for customers and staff, at this level.
The exterior of the house still requires partial plasters, but the house is ready for immediate occupancy with all the utilities connected.
The olive groves on the hill below the house complete this delightful property. There would be ample space for a swimming pool (subject to the usual planning consents) adjacent to the marquee/gazebo.
Casa Giacchino is located in a charming residential area of Arpino called Collecarino, just outside the old town. Two award-winning restaurants are located in Collecarino itself and Arpino's shops, restaurants, cafes and amenities are just a walk or a couple of minutes' drive away. The property has excellent road access; Rome's central and Rome's main international airport are within 90 minutes, while Rome's second international airport is barely an hour away.
