Property in Sicily For Sale – An offer you can’t refuse

Super opportunity to live and work in the Sicilian sunshine with several income streams, located near to Castiglione di Sicilia and at the foot of the mighty Mount Etna.

The main building of the property is a stone palmento – With the term palmento we refer to a concrete basin used by Greeks and Romans to crush grapes. Another variant consists of basins carved directly into the stone. With the passing of centuries the term was metonymically extended to the buildings containing these basins (which were used during the Middle Ages for olive crushing too).
(165 sqm – 1,775 sqft) on two floors:
– Ground floor: here we find the reception for the business, the cellar (currently used as storage for wines and sometimes as wine tasting room) and the owner’s apartment. On the outside there is a terrace.
– First floor: we have here an independent apartment (65 sqm – 699 sqft) accessed via an external staircase and made up of living room (sofa-bed), kitchen, 2 twin bedrooms (convertible into double bedrooms id needed) and bathroom with shower. On the outside there is a private terrace built right over the rooftop of the ground floor.

The other buildings, four in total and recently built, are organized into apartments for guests.

The main building of the property has been carefully restored and converted into residence and reception for the business. We have stone walls on the outside, partially plastered and painted in yellow and red, while on the inside we can find terracotta floors, wooden beams and exposed stone walls.
The other buildings were recently built, as one can see, and boast white-painted plastered walls. On the inside, modern finishes are coupled with styles typical to the Sicilian countryside.

The property is completed by 5.5 hectares of land, split among vineyard, olive grove, citrus grove and garden.
The vineyard, in particular, with its 3.5 hectares, hosts mainly Nerello Mascalese vines whose fruits are base for the renowned Etna Rosso DOC. Currently, the vineyard is rented out and its production ranges around 150 quintals of grapes per year.
Finally, the property has a nice 14 x 7 m swimming pool ideal for guests to cool off and relax.
