What you should know about this detached house

Amenities and special features of this detached house

The owners architects renovated the property like to call it CASA ASCENSIONALE, due to its conformation. The visitor seems to take a spiritual path, from the womb of the earth to the sky. Indeed, from the intimate environment of the caves, passing through a room with the vaults in stone, you climb up to discover an intense light that comes from a large room with an eighteenth-century alcove. At this point a stairway in pitch reveals a further path to the level above, where a panoramic terrace opens onto the historic centre of Modica. The idea was to maintain the original structure, implementing a renovation as conservative as possible and equipping the house with missing services, such as bathrooms and the kitchen. Thus the specific characteristics of the house were enhanced by making new interventions readable .The entrance area was originally a public road, whose pavement was completely dismantled. In the frowned, reclaimed and cleaned up kitchen-dining area have been created in one and in the other a characteristic bathroom. On the upper floor in the large living room there is an eighteenth-century alcove with a window from which you can enjoy a really special glimpse of the city. Another bathroom completes this floor. On the upper level, a splendid panoramic terrace completes the property. Among the new interventions, the particular design of the new iron staircase connecting the original ramp with the terrace and finally the entrance door , made of iron with a glass door, which during the day can be left open, making sure that the entrance becomes almost an exterior, full of plants.The internal surface is 140 square metres while the terrace measures 16 square metres .

MODICA: Location and surroundings of this property

In via Francavilla, a small street in Modica Alta, however accessible by car, the property enjoys a very private location, close to the centre of Modica alta, Santa Teresa square, easily reachable on foot. Modica, like other historical centres of the Val di Noto, owes its particular urban configuration to the uncommon conformation of the territory: it is perched on two plateaus crossed by two deep canyons, where until the last century two rivers flowed. Many houses in the old part of the city, leaning against each other, are often the extension of the ancient caves, inhabited since prehistoric times. About 700 caves were surveyed that were once inhabited, or in any case used for some use, between those visible and those “incorporated” into new buildings. Of great historical importance is the excellent state of preservation, in the historic centre, of the necropolis of Quartiriccio, in the Vignazza district, with some dozens of oven graves dug into the rock, dating back to 2200 BC. Modica, together with Ragusa, Scicli and Noto has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and it is a rare example of an urban nucleus of Neolithic origins inhabited to this day.
