Property description

This charming bungalow can accommodate up to 5 guests comfortably. Pets are also welcome.

The front door leads directly into the modern, stylish and well equipped kitchen with large wooden breakfast bar and dining table (seating for 6). Behind the kitchen, a short corridor leads to the bathroom and the master bedroom.
The bathroom is equipped with a shower, a bidet, a wash basin, a toilet, towel rails and large mirror.
A doorway to the rear of the sitting room leads to a study/guest room with fold-down tables which can double as a guest bedroom with a single bed. (note: no door! and the photos show a futon not the single bed) The room has bookshelves and a large selection of books to peruse, in English, Italian and German. You will also find a radio/CD player and a large and varied selection of CDs.
A door in the study leads to the second bedroom with a comfortable double bed, a large chest of drawers, bedside table and 2 double-doored wardrobes. The window looks out to the aqueduct at the back of the house.
The paved garden area around the full circumference of the property, boasts (for most of the year!) a colourful array of potted plants, citrus trees and shrubs. The backdrop to the house is the imposing aqueduct, which you can touch from the garden, and there are 2 BBQ. Upstairs, sun lovers can enjoy sunbathing and al fresco dining on a 90sqm2 private roof terrace, equipped with a table, chairs, a sun lounger and sink.

“Casa Felice” is a detached 90 sqm2 bungalow adjacent to the ancient “Acquedotto Felice”, a Roman aqueduct built in 1585 by Pope Sixtus V. The property is located in Porta Furba- Quadraro, a traditional Roman residential area only 20 minutes from the centre of Rome.

Casa Felice is an ideal residence for those seeking a family home which offers easy access to Rome’s tourist attractions, shops and eateries, in combination with a quiet, safe sub-urban homestead offering great amenities.

“Casa Felice” is a gated, detached property situated on a no-through road which leads directly to the park of 'Torre del Fiscale'. An archaeological park of the Appian Way, Torre del Fiscale is a sizeable green space scattered with ancient ruins including the 600 year old working aqueduct Felice. The park is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling (cycle paths), picnics, ball games, dog walking, bird watching or just sitting and relaxing! A local museum, an organic restaurant, bicycle hire and a children’s playground are also available here.

Within short walking distance you will find a 3 km stretch of local shops, including supermarkets, boutiques, chemists, hair salons, green grocers and markets. (This is a great place to shop, away from the tourist prices in the centre). From here you can access both Metro line 'A' and regular bus services, via which the many sights and delights of Rome are only a short trip away.

Locally there are facilities to play golf, swim, do yoga, horse ride, play tennis, visit Rome's film studios and go to gladiator school.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose San Giovanni (St. John Lateran):
Most people, like us, are seduced by Rome, this vibrant, chaotic, beautiful city, but to live here can be difficult. Most of the living spaces are apartment blocks with people everywhere, so on a hot summer's night with everyone's windows open, there is a cacophony of noise. Parking is impossible and basic chores become difficult through the sheer volume of people. The alternative is a villa outside the city, where you hear the crickets, have your own space, but travelling to the centre takes too long and you feel isolated. This house was exactly what we wanted and is the best of both worlds: to live in this fabulously chaotic city, but have some space to enjoy all things Italian!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
How often can you say that you have dinner at home under the stars with a 600 year old Roman aqueduct in your back garden? The estate agents laughed at us when we told them our needs (as did most Italians) An independent house, with no one above or below you. Near a lovely park big enough to go for a run with the dog. A metro station close by. Every type of shop within walking distance. A genuine Italian community i.e. non touristy. No problems with parking. Near some Roman history and a large, large terrace. It's an ideal place.
