Real Estate in Porticello
The apartment Terrazza sul Mare is located in the small town of Santa Elia, which belongs to the municipality of Santa Flavia and lies around 12km to the east of Sicily’s capital city, Palermo. The town is mostly supported by fishing, with a little income from tourism.
The property is on the second and top floor of a three family townhouse. An ample staircase leads up to the 86m2 apartment, which is divided into a quartet of spacious rooms: a living room, a kitchen with dining area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The apartment has just been renovated is ready for immediate occupancy. Work would only be necessary if you wanted to change the layout of the rooms. New aluminum windows with insulating glass are fitted in the bedrooms and the house has a natural gas connection, so central heating could also be installed with minimal effort.
From both the kitchen and living room you can step straight out onto the sun terrace with a fantastic sea view. This 50m2 space is the feature of the property, and one glance at the photos will show you why!
The coast in front of the house is very varied: small beaches alternate with rocks that jut directly out into the crystal clear water. The area’s most popular beach is just feet away.
