Property Description

A spacious, move-in ready house nestled in the countryside

Nestled amidst the tranquil countryside south of Cinisi, Casa Marylin is a charming 200-square-meter property embraced by a sprawling 2000-square-meter garden adorned with fruit and nut trees. Boasting three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home offers spacious living across both levels, complemented by delightful outdoor areas.

Conveniently situated within easy reach of Punta-Raisi airport yet spared from the noise disturbance, Casa Marylin enjoys an elevation of 590 metres above sea level, granting refreshing breezes to temper the hot Sicilian summers. Its central location on this part of the island ensures easy access to regional towns like Cinisi, Carini, and Montelepre, while larger cities such as Palermo and Trapani are just an hour’s drive away.

Maintained in impeccable condition, the house requires no renovation or restructuring, boasting a substantial water tank and efficient drainage systems. Any potential enhancements, such as solar panels or the addition of an oven, would be purely at the discretion of the owner, as the property already stands as a testament to comfort and functionality.


The Property

Situated on the northwest coast with captivating vistas stretching to San Vito lo Capo, this distinguished residence, built nearly thirty years ago by its current owner, exudes timeless solidity and charm.

Stepping into the home from the ground level, you are met by the garage which transitions into an ample cellar spanning approximately 80 square meters, complete with wine barrels and a convenient bathroom. A spiral staircase through a doorway grants access to the main part of the house.

The expansive 120 m2 upper floor can be accessed via an external staircase which unveils a thoughtfully designed layout. The first room is a generously sized 40 m2 kitchen-living area with views of the countryside and the sea. An old-fashioned wood burner lends warmth during winter nights, while the kitchen area is a cosier more modest space, with a counter which offers the potential to be a breakfast bar. A short corridor leads you from here to three generously proportioned bedrooms, each capable of accommodating a double bed, adjacent to a well-appointed bathroom.

Through the back door there is a large sheltered outdoor area which includes a small pizza oven, making it ideal for al fresco dining amidst the lush surroundings. The property’s allure extends beyond the confines of the home, encompassing an expansive 2,000 square metre orchard with an array of fruit and nut trees cascading down a gentle slope.

While the house doesn’t enjoy communal water connections, the property boasts its own well and a colossal 50,000-litre rainwater cistern. Additionally, two nearby springs provide a direct source of clean water. The sloping roof and strategically constructed “Indiana” trench surrounding the perimeter are designed to stop moisture damaging the house and, as the house demonstrates, have been very successful in doing this.



Casa Marylin is located in the peaceful countryside, just a short 15-minute drive from Cinisi along with nearby towns such as Carini, Montelepre, and Partinico. Perched at an elevation of 590 metres, it enjoys a refreshing breeze that delicately tempers the hot Sicilian sun, offering a tranquil retreat amongst nature.

Cinisi is notable for its proximity to Punta-Raisi airport, making Casa Marylin very convenient when travelling or welcoming visitors. Despite its closeness, the airport’s runways run perpendicular to the route to the house, ensuring minimal disturbance from airplane noise and crucially not detracting from the value of the house. Instead, you can enjoy watching planes taking off and landing from the comfort of the sunny garden.

Further afield, Casa Marylin offers easy access to Sicily’s cultural hubs. Palermo, the island’s capital, is approximately 50 minutes away, boasting grand theatres, a majestic cathedral, and famous street food. Similarly, Trapani is reachable within an hour, while Marsala is just 80 minutes away, each offering its own unique attractions and historical charm.



Casa Marylin is in great condition, and solidly constructed by the current owner nearly 30 years ago. With no need for renovation or restructuring, a simple cleaning of the exterior walls with a power washer will suffice to keep it looking pristine.

As mentioned before, the property boasts a generously sized water tank, providing an ample 50,000-litre supply that would prove very difficult to completely use up (unless your showers last days rather than minutes) so no improvements are needed in this regard. Impeccably maintained, the residence boasts an interior free of moisture spots or cracks thanks to its sloping roof and drainage system.

To further enhance the appeal of Casa Marylin, you could consider adding additional outdoor seating areas to capitalise on the picturesque surroundings. Inside, installing a modern oven in the kitchen could add convenience and functionality without costing too much, and a breakfast bar could be a nice touch. The installation of solar panels on the roof would not only reduce energy costs but also contribute to the eco-friendliness of the home. For even greater sustainability, implementing a greywater recycling system would ensure efficient water usage, which would be particularly beneficial for watering the huge garden.

Additionally, moving to Sicily entails various benefits. While the island’s relaxed lifestyle is perfect for over-65s, it’s also becoming increasingly attractive to digital nomads and entrepreneurs due to favourable tax incentives under the inpatriate tax scheme, potentially reducing tax liability by 90% to thank you for choosing ‘la dolce vita’ under the sun.
