Two-bedroom apartment with stunning views, 125 sqm, with communal garden and swimming pool, in an 18th-century aristocratic manor under restoration located in Fornelli, a historic village in a stunning panoramic position on the sea of Acciaroli, in Cilento, only a few minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Agnone.
The manor is a stone building with a courtyard presenting several 18th- and 19th-century original features such as a tower, a dovecote, a court with elegantly decorated stone staircase and a well, stone doorframes and balconies, and a tunnel yet to be explored... The building also includes a garden over three terraces, overlooking the quaint village square and church. The south- and north-westerly facades look out over the charming hillsides and the gorgeous backdrop of the Tyrrhenian Sea, spanning from Acciaroli to Castellabate, right in the heart of the Cilento National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This 125-sqm apartment, which is indicated on the plans as ?E?, is one of 5 available apartments in the same building, of sizes varying from 56 to 125 sqm, all with the same stunning views and a large 400-sqm communal garden with swimming pool.
Apartment/Unit E is arranged over the third and fourth floors, and consists of a spacious kitchen/living area with two balconies and one bathroom on the lower level, and two en-suite bedrooms with a roof terrace with sweeping views of the coast and hills on the upper level. Given the large size of the apartment, the layout can easily be modified on request. Access is via the courtyard through the garden.
The restoration and renovation project for the building has been approved by both the Ministero dei Beni Culturali (Ministry of Cultural Heritage) and the Cilento National Park, and it involves, among others:
- restoring the facade in a way sympathetic with the landscape and historical period of the building
- preserving the period features such as tower, well and stone carvings
- rebuilding exposed timber framing and ceilings in the lower levels
- using traditional finishes and materials(such as Vietry-style ceramics and terracotta for flooring and coverings)
- installing heating and air conditioning.
The expected result of the restoration project is as shown in the images attached. On request, the internal plans dividing the various apartments can be modified. Restoration is scheduled to be completed within about 12 months.
Pricing for all units is of ?1800 per sqm. Payment will be divided into instalments, due at various stages of the restoration work, with an initial deposit, all to be agreed in the contract.
The architect and project manager for all restoration and renovation work is Giuseppe Anzani (http://www.studioanzani.eu), a professional with 35 years of experience and a former professor at the University of Naples; two of his projects were included in the Ministry of Cultural Heritage?s list of significant architectural works of the 1900s (Censimento nazionale delle architetture italiane del secondo Novecento).
