Magnificent 16th century historical dwelling of about 1,000 sqm on 4 levels in the centre of the pretty hilltop village of Archi, in the province of Chieti.
Stunning views on one side towards the valley and the Adriatic Sea, and on the other side towards the Majella mountain. Archi is perched at about 490 mtrs above sea level, at the end of a wooded ridge sloping from the Pallano mountain overlooking the Sangro Valley.
The oldest part of the 'palazzo' dates back to the 16th century, and was subsequently extended in the 17th century by Giacomo Antonio Cieri, Governor of the fief of the Prince d'Aquino of Caramanico. The property has been in the same family since it was built.
The current owner has lovingly restored and rebuilt parts of the building using original materials. The palazzo enjoys numerous architectural features such as an impressive 50 sqm drawing room with a beautiful vaulted ceiling and large windows leading to one of the terraces.There is 'cotto fiorentino' flooring throughout, 2 foot thick walls, and a large new open plan kitchen.
The layout of the palazzo lends itself to subdivision into three self-contained apartments if desired.
