Perched on the hillside overlooking the south west coast of Italy, Scalea’s old town is just minutes’ walk to the beach. One of the most popular destinations for holidays in southern Italy, Scalea is home to just under 11,000 people.
A thriving town year round, this traditional centro storico is a maze of narrow streets, piazzas littered with local restaurants. Linked to the main town, this borgo is a step or two back in time with plenty of history.
At the top of the old town just down from the norman Castle ruin, we have a part renovated townhouse for sale. The property has had all the structural work completed and comes with floor tile, doors windows and shutters. There is also a spiral stair included.
The property consists of a large open plan living room with feature wall niche’s which can be used for cabinets. A corridor off the living area leads to two large bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the top floor there is access to a large roof terrace with excellent views ofd the sea and coast line.
To complete the restoration although the property has been channeled for electrics the cable installation is required. The bathroom is a shell and will require tile and sanitary ware. Internal doors and a main door (all included in the price) will require mounting. The spiral stairs needs to be fitted, floor tile laid and a final skim of plaster on the walls.
The property internally is over 60 sq mtrs and a roof terrace with 20 sq mtrs of space.
Parking is close by at the castle. Just a few minutes away is a great trattoris called A’Taverna.
Scalea is serviced by two airports. Lamezia Terme being the closest (1.5hrs) and Naples at just over 2hrs. Both opètions have a good train service to Scalea.
