About the property

Sleeps 11 (5 en suite bedrooms)

Casa Toti was completed in October 2011. It is a new build but built in the Abruzzeze style in old Maiella stone. Inside and out are beautiful arches and stunning use of stone. The ground floor has vaulted ceilings and the entire house has terracotta tiles with marble detailing. Beneath the traditional features is a totally up to date house with underfloor heating, central cooling system, photovoltaic energy panels and every mod con! A large hall leads into the kitchen/dining room and then into the sitting room. Both have French windows onto the shaded veranda with a large table for outside dining and a comfortable sofa and armchairs from which to soak up the view.

There is 1 bedroom downstairs, with French doors onto the veranda, with an en suite shower room suitable for the elderly or guests with mobility problems.

There are 3BR on the 1st floor, 1 with a balcony, and the 5th bedroom is in the tower, also with its own balcony. All bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and lovely view.

Outside areas: The swimming pool (open May to end of October) has Roman steps and is 14m x 6m with a diving board. It has stunning views to the mountains and is surrounded by a terrace area with plenty of loungers. The veranda has everything for summer, outdoor living and has steps down leading to the pool area. On the other side of the house there is a trampoline for the children. Bedroom 1 leads out onto the veranda and bedrooms 2 and 5 have balconies with table and chairs facing the mountains. The house is set in an olive grove of approximately 120 old olive trees.

About Jane Young

When I'm not at Casa Toti in stunning Abruzzo, I live in Salisbury, UK and co own a shop in Stockbridge selling Italian shoes and accessories - property and shoes being 2 of my passions! I used to be a music teacher which combined my other 2 passions - teaching and music. With 3 children - on the verge of leaving home, life is busy.

Jane Young purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jane Young chose Pescara

Casa Toti was a new build. I bought a beautiful flat olive grove and spent months planning the position of the house as well as the design of the house with lots of input from a great friend and of course a fantastic local surveyor. The views are stunning all year round.

What makes this villa unique

Because it was a new build we could aim to be as energy efficient as possible. The central underfloor cooling system is a fantastic alternative to air conditioning, keeping the house at a constant ambient temperature in the heat of the summer months.

Villa strepitosa

  • 5 of 5

Dire che la casa, il posto, gli arredi, i dettagli tutti sono strepitosi e poco!! Abbiamo affittato la casa in occasione della comunione di mia figlia per festeggiare una giornata indimenticabile e lo è stata davvero, siamo tornati anche per capodanno e non mancherà occasione per tornarci. La consiglio vivamente a tutti, la proprietaria parla solo inglese ma contattandola via mail non c'è alcun problema ed io che ho avuto la fortuna di conoscerla di persona posso dire che è una persona disponibilissima.
