The property is fully walled and surrounded by olive trees (around 100). There are two wells with plenty of water both with water pumps and underground water network, used for the animals, irrigation of garden and crops, and filling the huge stone tank. This tank would make an excellent swimming pool and is well placed near to the house in a pretty walled garden with a fountain, trees and several stone statues. The large attached annexes include several rooms for an additional residence, indoor riding arena, two barns, a tack room and stables for 6 horses. There are also two other detached smaller buildings previously used as warehouses. All the land is arable and has been fenced off in sections for animal grazing and pasture.

The property can be accessed by two sets of gates, one used for the house and one for the land, animals and tractor. There are several other gates to the land from the house and courtyard.
Most of the outbuildings are in a bad state of repair and require complete renovation. The indoor riding arena is good and has a new roof. The main house has been refurbished to a very high standard. Marble and hardwood have been used as flooring throughout and the high vaulted ceilings (up to 5 metres) have kept their detail. On the ground floor there is a large reception room with a wood burner, elegant dining room, library, large kitchen incorporating some very old hand made bricks found on the land, a comfortable living room with fireplace, a bedroom with en-suite bathroom plus a family bathroom and a washroom. The first floor compromises six bedrooms, one with a terrace, two family bathrooms, a sitting room with terrace and fireplace and a long corridor leading to a large terrace with views to the city skyline.

There has been an approved project to create a guest house and rural tourism which could include amongst other things bike and horse riding in the area.

This is a wonderful opportunity to own a piece of history and if not wishing to have a tourism income would be an absolutely super and refined family home or could be brought back to life as a farm, vineyard or citrus orchard.
