Perched overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea along the south west coast of Italy, Scalea’s old town is steeped in history dating back to the 11th century. A beach resort with a unique backdrop, Scalea is a traditional Italian seaside town with a twist.
The old town is within a short walk to the beach and main shopping areas. This centro storico is littered with many restaurants and trattorias along the narrow streets which are unpassable by car. The warren of buildings makes for an enchanting atmosphere and a taste of years gone by.
The property is located through the narrow streets close to the Norman castle at the top of the old town. This two storey building is approximately 90 sq mtrs in total. Currently the property can be accessed off Via Castello and Via Purgatorio.
Entering from Via Castello leads to a kitchen with pizza oven and bathroom. There are two more rooms at this level with access to a terrace. From the terrace there are beautiful sea views.
Entry from Via Purgatorio is from steps winding up to the lobby with bathroom. From the lobby, access to a large room and stairs leading to the top floor of the property.
The property requires new plumbing including both bathrooms refitting, new electrics throughout along with new doors, windows and shutters.
With plenty of character, this property not only offers a traditional pizza/bread oven but also a rock faced wall which would make a fantastic feature.
Parking is a short walk from the property.
Nearest airports are Lamezia Terme (1.5hrs) and Naples (2.5hrs)
