Brand New Beach House for Sale in Sicily with Pool and Sea Views
Villa Rosanna is a three bedroom, two bathroom new-build for sale in western Sicily, just 600m from the nearest beach. Built on two storeys, it is an end-of-terrace property with garden on three sides, highlighted by a beautiful swimming pool and sun deck.
Shaded by tall palm trees, and decorated in the perfect sandy yellow for a beach house, this villa would make the perfect base for a family holiday or rental investment. Its position close to some of Sicily’s best beaches will guarantee that neither you nor your guests will ever be left disappointed after a visit to recharge batteries and soak up the island’s year-round sun.
Alternatively, if you dream of a permanent relocation to Sicily, the easy proximity of the elegant baroque port of Trapani, barely ten minutes along the gently winding coast road, makes this a practical prospect as well as a romantic one. A wonderfully convenient beach house for sale in Sicily.
Villa Rosanna is listed for sale as seen, with all furniture and fittings. This includes some lovely, custom-built shelving and cupboards, as well as plenty of high quality and stylish pieces. Keep reading and we’ll take you through the highlights…
The ground floor features a living room-diner with a superbly comfortable white leatherette sofa suite around a wide screen TV which is connected to the satellite dish on the roof, offering the complete range of major international channels. The dining area comes with a trendy glass table and matching chairs.
The kitchen is built around a breakfast table and chairs in warm, natural wood which perfectly matches the windows, doors and other fittings. The golden maple tone gives the place a smooth, modern feel and punctuates the simple plaster interiors in a cool Mediterranean style. Here, as throughout the ground floor, we find easy-clean ceramic tiles under foot. You’ll find plenty of storage, and everything you need in your kitchen, including a dishwasher, an oven with extractor fan, a fridge and microwave as well as a washing machine.
Also on this level are a downstairs bathroom, fully tiled with efficient modern shower and with the handbasin in its own little anteroom, and a storage cupboard under stairs.
Upstairs, the large master bedroom opens onto a lovely balcony overlooking the front garden and offering a little sea view which stretches as fas as the nature reserve of Monte Cofano up the coast to the north at Cornino. A small double room is decorated in warm red, and offers a pool view. The kids’ room is painted a sunny yellow, with bunk beds and its own little balcony.
There is another bathroom here, with a very large shower. All of the bedrooms have plenty of cupboard space with fitted wardrobes and bookcases. The floors here are a wooden parquet.
You will be able to pass long, blissful afternoons and happy evenings in the delightful garden. The highlight is obviously the beautiful pool area, with plenty of surrounding room for sun loungers and parasols. To guarantee shade a covered terrace extends to the rear of the house, with its wooden roof sheltering an outdoor kitchen with a sink, gas hob and all-weather dining suite. The whole outdoor area is well lit and practical.
To the front you will find off-street parking with crazy paving and a front garden framing a little patio leading straight into the living room. You’ll love the towering shady palm trees and colourful splash of lawn, and an irrigation system keeps these looking their very best.
The villa is well protected, to make sure you have peace of mind even if you will need to leave it unoccupied on occasion. Besides the friendly neighbours in this quiet community, you can rely on the electric security gate at the front and the alarm system and security cameras distributed throughout the property. A buyer who might be away for prolonged periods can take comfort from our optional after-sale property management package, which includes a site inspection twice a month.
Villa Rosanna’s energy needs are met by large LPG gas cylinders. Air conditioning is installed throughout, as are heat pumps, although there is no central heating.
Bonagia is a welcoming seafront community of around a thousand residents, although this number swells in summer. Many families in nearby Trapani own a summer home here, and migrate up the coast to escape the city’s heat in July and August. It retains a distinct local character, however, with plenty of little shops to provide groceries and homewares, as well as a couple of lovely restaurants, plenty of bars and an excellent gelateria.
The town originally grew up, like so many Sicilian coastal settlements, around its tuna fishery, or tonnara. Although it’s no longer active, this has now been converted into a popular four star resort and a restaurant where you can, of course, enjoy unbelievably fresh seafood.
Trapani is a far older and more storied city, with a fascinating old town built on a spit of land with a busy port on one side and an urban beach on the other. It’s renowned as a hub of good food and wine, with some excellent eateries to suit every budget.
The nearest beach is just 600m away, a sheltered curve of a long strip of sand and shingle which runs almost uninterrupted for around six kilometres to the small town of Cornino in the north-east. A beach bar is built out over the water with its own jetty, serving seafood aperitivos and hosting live music in the summer. The seafront promenade is a tranquil route perfect for walking, running and cycling.
Despite the proximity to Trapani, these beaches remain relatively quiet even in peak of summer season, as the lidos on the edge of the city, the deep crescent of sand at Cornino and the famous resort of San Vito Lo Capo to the north attract much of the interest. This public beach is long enough and the housing sparse enough that you’ll always find a spot to paddle and catch some sun in peace and quiet, with the more celebrated destinations in easy reach whenever you fancy a change of scene.
San Vito is a half hour’s drive away, with the less developed but arguably even more picturesque Zingaro nature reserve reachable in 40 minutes. The chic merchant city of Marsala and the pristine beaches of the Aegadian Islands are easy day trips.
If you prefer to explore upwards as well as outwards, the nearby mountain of Erice holds one of Italy’s most scenic fortified towns on its flat summit, while Monte Cofano is an undeveloped haven for sea birds and offers some unforgettable views from its well-maintained footpaths.
You’ll probably find it necessary to own (or hire) a car in this part of the world, with train and bus travel patchy. However, the region is excellently served for air travel, Sicily’s busiest airport at Palermo an hour away, and the local Trapani-Birgi offering daily services to and from many continental hubs, especially in season.
Palermo itself is 60km to the east, Italy’s fifth largest city and its Capital of Culture as recently as 2018.
Of course, as a newly built, never occupied property there is absolutely no work to do on Villa Rosanna, not even furniture shopping. If your dream is a beach house for sale in Sicily with the absolute minimum of hassle possible, you couldn’t find better.
All permits and plans are in order, which, sad to say, is not guaranteed in this region – especially for seafront property.
