Along the west coast of Calabria overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea the mountain backdrop is home to several old towns, including Santa Maria del Cedro, situated between Scalea to the north and Diamante to the south. Just over an hour drive from Lamezia Terme or two hours from Naples, Santa Maria del Cedro is just 4km from the seaside resort of Santa Maria Marina.
Along Via Municipale on the edge of the old town, this two storey property requires some cosmetic work for habitable use. The property is in good condition structurally. The main work would include new plumbing and bathroom, electrical rewiring, new doors and windows and some external plastering/rendering. The property consists of a storage unit along the steps which access the main property. On entry to the house there is an external toilet and main door. Entry into the kitchen with feature fireplace. Two windows make this a bright room. Entry to the living room with window and stairs leading to the second floor. Underneath the stairs is a pantry area which could be used for storage. The second floor comprises small bedroom and bathroom. A second large bedroom access a beautiful terrace. The terrace reveals sea views. Parking is in the street. This area is well populated with locals. The neighbour below invited us to his cellar where we drank his fantastic homemade wine and shared bread and prosciutto with him.
At the foot of the steps leading to the property there is a small storage space. Ideal for logs to burn on the open fireplace. At the top of the steps to the left is an outside bathroom and to the front is the main door.
Kitchen – 16 sqm: The kitchen is plumbed with sink to the left of entry. A feature fireplace is along the main outside wall. Two windows (one with sea views) are the light source. To the right, entry into the main living room. The windows require replacement and the walls need a lick of paint.
Living room - 22 sqm: This room is ideal as the main living area. With one window, stairs to the second floor and storage space underneath the stairs. The window requires replacement and the walls need a lick of paint. Stairs lacks a hand rail/bannister.
Once on the second floor:
1st bedroom – 18.5 sqm: A small guest/childs bedroom.
Along the corridor at the end is the bathroom.
Bathroom 10 sqm: Ideally this requires totally gutting and replacing.
To the left out of the bathroom:
Main bedroom – 16 sqm: The bedroom’s balcony doors open onto the terrace.
Terrace – 24 sqm: Excellent sea views from the terrace. The terrace walled balustrade needs painting and perhaps the floor tiles require replacing.
The property requires new electrical wiring and plumbing.
We estimate a maximum total of 4 months to complete the upgrade. We work with local professionals who have years of experience renovating old townhouses in centro storicos.
