Restoration project in Calabria Overlooking the west coast of southern Italy perched on the hillside, the historic town of Grisolia scatters along the mountainous peak. A short distance to the beach at Cirella, Grisolia offers something unique with beach and traditional Italy.
The town is home to just over 2000 people, mainly locals.
A warm and friendly greeting will open the door to a truly Italian experience. The town, a maze of narrow streets and piazza’s sprinkled with local shops, bars and a couple of excellent restaurants. Although some streets are not passable by car there is plenty of parking throughout the town. Wednesday is market day when the town’s main street is turned in to a hive of commercial activity.
The old town offers a number of restoration properties and others which need a little TLC. One such property is on Via Portobello. The property is not accessible by car but parking is only a two minute walk.
Right on the edge of the town’s perimeter this two storey building boasts probably one of the best views in Grisolia if not Calabria. The property consists of basement and two rooms on the upper floor.
There is a garden off to the side. A full restoration project, this property requires a new floor, ceiling and roof. All utilities are close by so connections are easily accessed. The basement is approximately 20 sq mtrs with window and door. The feature of this room is the back wall.
Built into the mountain face the wall with its rocky appearance could be made into an eye catcher. We suggest this room become the main bedroom with a toilet. The window could be redeveloped into a Juliet balcony.
A spiral stair would take you to the main living area. Here we have over 25 sq mtrs of internal space. Currently two rooms we suggest an open plan living area and bathroom. There are two windows which again could be developed into Juliet balconies to take advantage of the wonderful views. The garden faces the sea and panoramic views.
The potential is endless and if you are looking for an affordable fixer upper this property would certainly give you something very special.
