"The Rocks of Scanno"
Located in the Abruzzo National Park, at 1000 meters above sea level stands a pearl nestled in the mountains, a delightful village of about 1500 inhabitants that boasts important nature trails: SCANNO.
In this naturalistic context, on the edge of one of the most suggestive towns in Abruzzo, we offer for sale what many have defined as the most beautiful villa in the town, known as "Le Rocce di Scanno".
Located a few steps from the departure station of the chairlift and a few minutes walk from the town center, this detached villa with garden and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains is a small architectural jewel hidden among the rocks of the pine forest.
It was built in 1971 by Ennio and Adele Pagliari, based on a project by the architect Oreste Gargano, built entirely on a steep terrain characterized by four spurs of rock on which it was considered difficult to build.
Thanks to the competence and planning of the architect Gargano, supporter of Frank Lloyd Wright's environmental architecture, today this beautiful villa lies comfortably on the rocks, wrapping and containing them at the same time.
For some years it has been used as a charming B&B.
The Villa, spread over five staggered floors, is equipped with a lift and private parking.
Furnished and finished with extreme care, it has large spaces, internal and external, for guests.
From the main entrance you go up until you reach the comfortable living area, characterized by an open fireplace and a large window that occupies the entire wall giving an incredible view of the pine forest and the surrounding mountains, creating the feeling of being suspended between the woods of Abruzzo.
The living room, like the rest of the villa, is completely covered in wood, in the characteristic mountain style, and its period furniture makes the rooms particularly welcoming and comfortable.
From the living room, adjacent to the kitchen, you reach the various rooms on staggered floors, all with attention to detail and full of light with access to the bathrooms.
Some rooms lead to the garden, built and designed on several levels as if to accompany the harmony of the floors of the villa, with quiet and discreet relaxation areas with a unique view.
Stone stairways, interspersed with squares and lawns, enliven the outside, full of plants and flowers.
In the garden there is also a barbecue area perfect for grilling outdoors in the cool summer atmosphere.
The villa has three fireplaces, often lit during the winter, which help to create an intimate and familiar atmosphere.
The garden has a natural spring from which wood squirrels come to drink and stock up on nuts for the winter.
Its particular position, reserved and immersed in the pine forest, and its architectural style make it unique in its kind.
The villa offers a particularly suggestive atmosphere and designed for lovers of nature and the slow pace of mountain life.
