Property with land for sale in Sicily
Casa Agnello, or ‘Lamb House’ is a fine property with land for sale in Sicily. Sitting on over seven acres, between the towns of Collesano and Campofelice, it is less than an hour by car from the international airport at Palermo, in the north of Sicily. The island’s capital, in whose province the property is found, is an historic city enjoying a renaissance as a hub of the arts, culture and of course food.
With a residential house and over seven acres of land, there is ample room for development and even to add another building. If you have ever dreamt of running a B&B in the Mediterranean, investing in a holiday complex with multiple apartments for rent, or simply building a dream family home for sale in Sicily, this could be exactly what you’re looking for.
The video you find at the bottom of this page, gives you a sense of the stunning, epic terrain. We couldn’t resist capturing the beautiful sunset, so you miss out on a little of the sea view, but trust us – you won’t be disappointed!
The main house here is a renovation project, in need of a lot of attention. However, we have found that some of our happiest clients throughout our three decades in the industry have been those who’ve taken the plunge and designed their own perfect home. If you’re looking at homes for sale in Sicily one thing is very clear – the island’s government is highly welcoming to new residents and those investing in the island.
There is a small shed currently on the land, however this is due to be demolished as it did not have the correct paperwork at the time of construction. However, it will leave space that could be taken up by another building or buildings. When looking at this kind of property with land for sale in Sicily we always caution buyers to investigate power and water: At Casa Agnello electricity is already connected and the property draws its own mineral-quality water from two wells, and connects to the main water supply on the road.
As with so much of the real estate on this site, the views on offer from Casa Agnello are breathtaking: in front of you stretch hilly meadows and fields, to the left is the Gulf of Termini and in front of you stretches the blue Tyrrhenian Sea. On a clear day you can see out to the Aeolian Islands, including Stromboli, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Don’t worry – it’s a very safe distance away!
On the property there is already a beautiful population of old trees, of many kinds. Eucalyptus, various fruit and olives all grow in abundance. Although private, the property is not isolated, and some friendly neighbors await to welcome you to an area where hospitality is a source of tremendous pride.
The route from Campofelice to Collesano is noted for being the home of the historic Targa Florio motor rally, and the area is steeped in the history of the event. There is a museum in Collesano and the electric energy of the first sportscar contest in the world still fills the area as classic car rallies are held on the same roads to this day.
An unbeatably Italian experience.
The area is in the foothills of the Madonie Park – a haven of nature and outdoor sports. Nearby Gratteri is one of our agency’s absolute top recommendations for value investment in homes for sale in Sicily.
The drive to Collesano is about 5km, to Campofelice 6km and to the sea about the same. Just ten minutes’ drive from the sea and ten from Collesano, you can swim every day in summer, hike and explore throughout the spring and even ski during the clear winter mornings.
Around 300m2 of the property is suitable for development and another building or buildings could easily be added.
The trees lend themselves to the production of olive oil or any kind of fruit produce. If you dream of La Dolce Vita, what could be more magical than running a small enterprise from your very own plot of Sicilian land?
