Like a scene out of Under the Tuscan Sun (minus the major rehab)! This charming 4 Bedroom, 4 bath farmhouse puts you upon the little hills of the Iblean countryside, between Chiaramonte and Comiso. In the heart of the oil production, from the olive called “tonda iblea”, of exceptional quality. Known as the best olive oil all over the world and the road that leads to the Cerasuolo di Vittoria wine, on lands suitable for the cultivation of wine and grapes vines.
We love the charming front entrance, and open doors, looking out to the olive grove. The early 1800’s stone walls are what dreams are made of.
In that particular area of the Iblean territory of viticulture and olive growing there is this charming property. It was founded in 1812 as a country residence of a family that owned several hectares of olive groves and vineyards in the surrounding area and that together with the holiday home also built a beautiful millstone with attached cellar and an oil mill for the needs of the estate. So, it is a harmonious rectangular structure typical of those of nineteenth century. The property is composed of a house linked to the millstone by a hallway. This one, charming, very big, with seven tanks, occupies the central part of the structure and contains all the equipments still functioning. Communicating the equally large cellar to the winery and finally to the Custodian’s apartment. In 1994 the cellar was transformed into an apartment with a loft and the caretaker’s house in an annex, while everything else remained unchanged. The entire estate is 488 square metres including the 33 square metres garage. The house contains three fireplaces and three stoves and is well served, as far as water is concerned it is connected to the municipal pipeline and also has two wells, one of which is bored. The property enjoys great privacy because it is surrounded by more than 14 thousand square metres of land with a beautiful olive grove of the famous tonda iblea and has a beautiful view of the surrounding hills.
