Semi detached villa with beautiful pool
Villa Ribera is located in a private community near San Nicola, in the coastal municipality of Trabia. This quiet stretch of the island’s north is just half an hour outside the thriving capital city Palermo – accessible but idyllic; close to the beach but away from the crowds – the perfect spot to buy a seaside villa in Sicily.
The semi-detached villa is next to the large communal swimming pool, which is shared by the development and jointly owned. This is maintained and also managed by the community, and there are certain times when swimming is not allowed. The entire pool area enjoys magnificent views of the Sicilian countryside.
The spacious terrace faces south-west, a glorious sun trap. Both the property and the community as a whole are in a perfect condition, and the lush tropical garden is maintained by a gardener, because the current owner stays here only occasionally. As a result of changing family circumstances this property is offered for quick sale.
The house is built on a single story and has a living and dining area, two bedrooms, a bathroom and storage room. Outside there is an additional open-air kitchen, parking spaces (accessed through an electric gate) and behind the house space for a vegetable garden. In front of the house the ornamental garden has an automatically-watered lawn (a real rarity in Sicily!) and tropical plants. The entire plot is 1500m2, of which the house has a footprint of 90m2, not including several covered terraces.
The 15 year-old house is built in a style typical of many a seaside villa in Sicily, and is well-kept without need for renovation. As with any new acquisition, a new homeowner will certainly want to make some cosmetic changes – perhaps a new coat of paint and some minor repairs; but the building is ready to move into straight away.
The house has a stone floor with sandy-coloured tiles, gas heating with radiators and air conditioning for the warm months. The kitchen is fully fitted with a gas hob, oven and washing machine, all of which are offered for sale alongside the villa, subject to reaching agreement with the seller. If you like the classic furniture you will be very happy with what you find here. Obviously the outdoor kitchen will remain in place, as well as the small summer house.
You’ve bought a seaside villa in Sicily for a good reason, and the beaches at San Nicola can be reached on foot with a 20 minute stroll, or by car in a few moments. This charming fishing village offers bars and or beach clubs, and a little further afield the small town of Trabia contains various supermarkets and all the amenities you’ll need for daily life. The surrounding area invites you to go hiking; good trattorias can be found in San Nicola and Trabia; upscale restaurants in Casteldaccia, Bagheria, Santa Flavia and of course in Palermo, which you can reach on the motorway in 30 minutes.
If you’re spending time at home, you can enjoy from the terrace a beautiful view that stretches on across the rolling Sicilian landscape.
Do you dream of spending long hot summers in a seaside villa in Sicily, but worry about maintenance and security when you’re not around? Are you put off by the prospect of a renovation project or furnishing a home from scratch in a foreign country? Villa Ribera is a perfect solution! Sold ‘turnkey’, or fully-furnished and ready for immediate occupation, it will immediately offer you a place in a community in which friendly neighbours are at hand, and access to a pool and beautiful terrace come without extravagant overheads, but which is designed to offer peace and privacy.
Alternatively, if you plan to make this a year-round residence, you can benefit from some inviting tax breaks.
We think that this is a great value investment which delivers everything it promises without the possibility of complicated surprises.
