A lovely property to restore, set back from the road in Contrada Mola only a few km from Modica. The property has been a private house as well as a closed convent in its 250 year history, and benefits from a private chapel. Although now divided into two properties, the main house is structurally sound and although needs restoration has a wealth of original and architectural features.
Sitting on a lot of 3000mq, which includes a beautiful formal garden, with walkways and pergolas, there is also a large space which is ideal for a pool.
The house itself is of about 400mq and is on one level. The entrance leads to the main hall, and an exit to the rear courtyard, where there are 2 barns/stores and steps up to the two roof terraces. On the left of the main hall are 2 large rooms, kitchen, bathroom and a ‘pantry’ of about 25mq. To the right of the main hall are two reception rooms, large bedroom with typical alcove of the period, and a further two rooms, one of which has a wrought iron goosebreast window which looks into the chapel – and was for use of the nuns to participate at mass. Original floors, woodwork and barrel vaults.
The chapel is reached through a second courtyard.
The entire property is delightful and retains an atmosphere of another time. A sympathetic restoration would create a unique property close to Modica and yet in the countryside.
