Real Estate in Collesano
This elegant country villa in Sicilian rustico style is located between the towns of Collesano and Campofelice, around 5km from beautiful sandy beaches. A small junction off the provincial road, which was once part of the historic Targa Florio rally, leads to the Villa delle Melie. The house, built in 2008 of highest quality materials, blends seamlessly into the beautiful, hilly olive groves below the Madonie hills. A beautiful house with a pool in Sicily – could life really get any better?
This gorgeous modern villa blends elements of the traditional Sicilian country escape and the best contemporary design to guarantee comfort and green living. The stylishly furnished three bedroom house has a new wood heating system (using wood from the property) and solar panels supply the entire house. A small patio leads to the main entrance, which brings you directly into the open, loft-style living area. A kitchen, dining room, en suite bedroom and small guest toilet are also on this level.
On the upper floor a gallery landing leads to the roof terrace and two further bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. The massive, antique wooden doors are have been repurposed from an old palazzo in Palermo. The conservatory, decorated with Sicilian ceramic tiles, offers additional living space both in winter (it is fitted with a wood burning stove and heating) and in summer, when the glass front can be opened to the elements, the pool area and the pair of covered terraces.
The pool has state of the art salt filtration and counter-current systems. The garden around the house has been planted with loving attention to detail, filled with Mediterranean plants and fruit trees. The two hectare property includes a small lake and several hundreds of olive trees. The village of Campofelice is about 1.5km away and contains all the shops you’ll need for day-to-day life.
The beautiful holiday destination of Cefalù is just along the coast, with its UNESCO world heritage cathedral and vast sandy beach.
In recent years we have sold around a dozen properties within a five kilometer radius of Villa delle Melie, and this has created a small community of expats in the area from the US, Germany, Sweden and all walks of life. The prestigious Solemar Academy is just up the road and many of our staff would be delighted to help you get to grips with Italian and introduce you to some of your fascinating new neighbors.
The Villa delle Melie is a dream property for the whole year, offering the highest levels of comfort and sold including several furnishings.
It would make a superb investment opportunity as the real estate in Cefalù and the surrounding area is really booming. A luxury villa with a pool in Sicily? It’s a vacation home advert that scarcely needs any more words added! The owners of this property have sold with us before, a nearby piece of real estate that was smaller and not as beautiful. This had been rented to high end clientèle for years, generating an average income of €35,000 p.a. We believe that €40,000 would be very achievable with this beautiful property.
If buy-to-let is an interesting proposition for you but seems like too great a workload, we have years of experience managing holiday homes and would be delighted to offer our services after the sale is complete.
On top of the final purchase price you should budget 3.0% (+ VAT) for our full support including a certified real estate agency service and mother-tongue, multilingual support throughout the entire purchase – right up until the keys are in your pocket!
