    Description

    Situated on approximately the same latitude as Rome, but on the Adriatic Sea, just outside the sleepy village of Serramonacesca, Olive Grove Farm is a 200 year old stone farmhouse set in nearly 5 acres (of mainly olive trees) that has been lovingly restored to a high specification and  has astounding views of the surrounding mountains and countryside.

    It has a large 12 m swimming pool (2m at deep end) with large log cabin as a Poolhouse, that could be used as an extra bedroom.

    Situated just 25 min. from the sandy beaches of Pescara, and 40 min. from the bottom of the chair lift (2700 m high, so plenty of snow for a long ski season), this charming old farm house offers both good skiing in the winter and wonderful swimming in the Adriatic in the summer from the many safe, sandy beaches - but offers tranquility at all times! The house is approached through a gated, tree lined drive, with a small river at the bottom (safe for children to paddle and even has the odd trout!).  It has over 200 olive trees with some walnut, hazelnut, fig, apple and pear tree in the surrounding private grounds.

    Most of the hot water comes from solar heating.

    The farmhouse will easily sleep six in 3 large double bedrooms (2 with washbasins) but there is a single sofa bed (in main bedroom) and 3 extra temporary beds if needed.  One of the bedrooms is at ground level for those with a disability.

    There is also the Poolhouse! Although this was originally built for “swimmers” it has two single  beds, a shower, washbasin and toilet and so could be used as an extension of the house for a large or second family (or for teenagers wanting a little privacy!!).  

    The farmhouse also consists of 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped very large Kitchen/Diner,  a  large lounge with a romantic log fire and an “Open”  room for eating  (generally summer only!) with some beautiful Italian antique furniture. There is an enormous veranda (12m x 6m) on the first floor facing south allowing maximum effect of the wonderful view. A large permanent Gazebo (4x4m) is on one corner to shield the sun - perfect place for lunch or an evening barbeque - and breakfast!.

    There is a separate, self-contained Log Cabin on the extremity of our land. This is sometimes available for renting with the house for a larger party (sleeps 2-4), although access is by concrete steps (I.e. car has to be parked 50m away. This is not rented if guests are staying in the farmhouse

    To the left of the house, we have a large (12x6metre) solar heated swimming pool (2m at deep end) At night the pool can be lit by underwater lights and around the pool.

    The house is situated just seven min walk from the village (part tarmac, part stones) and is approached through two white iron gates, up a 100 metre drive surrounded by the olive & fruit trees. Guests are welcome to any of the ripe produce.

     

    Beds Description

    There are two Kingsize beds and two 3ft single beds, together with a futon in the main bedroom, a double "bed-in -a-bag" . Further there are two single beds in the Poolhouse, although this is strictly not a bedroom

    Owner Info
    Vacation Rental Property Owner's Picture
    Owner Profile:
    Born in London in 1947 and graduated from Brunel University in 1971 in Physics, started work at Marconi Avionics now BAe. Eventually worked from Datron Wavetek for 22 years in electrical metrology. Started my own company MeasureTech Ltd in 1999 and retired in 2014. Bought Olive Grove Farm in 2004 to eventually retire to and now spend about 4-5 months/year there (not continuously). Am a member of the Rotary Club of Whitstable and visited many Rotary clubs in the vicinity.
    Why the Owner Chose Serramonacesca, Abruzzo:
    Through my job have travelled extensively in Italy and many other countries and Abruzzo was top of my list due to mid accessible position in Italy, many safe and sandy beaches of the Adriatic but also loved the quiet solitude of the glorious Apennine mountains. Sounds a bit "sales orientated" but Abruzzo offers everything! Olive Grove Farm is 7mins from the sleepy village of Serramonacesca, near enough to enjoy the facilities (2 restaurants, 2 bars, 2 shops and a butcher and pharmacy) but far enough to give total privacy - and with 200 olive and fruit trees we get good olive oil, walnuts, hazlenuts, apples, pears and figs. I made the decision to purchase in 2 mins of arrival!
    The Unique Benefits at this House:
    Safe, sandy and not too crowded beaches of the Adriatic Private 12m Pool Beautiful views in all directions Nearly five acres of private ground with small river at bottom Many lovely tranquil, historical Italian villages Golf Acquapark, tennis, white water rafting, hot natural spas short drive away Solitude but short drive to everything!
