For those seeking to dive into the spirit of regeneration and transformation, look no further than this three-bedroom, stone house nestled in the undulating hills of Arpino, Frosinone, Lazio, Italy. This charming abode hearkens to the architecturally-alluring days of yore, waiting patiently for hands of love to restore it to its former grandeur – an idyllic, fixer-upper opportunity.

The house, referred to as 'Rudere della Valle', spans 200 square meters over three levels. Its graceful architectural layout, reminiscent of a small village, offers a legacy of craftsmanship. Exhibiting the sturdy mason skills of the past, the large, hand-cut stones form the building's weight-bearing walls and the grand entrance stone staircase. Any restorative work would proudly feature this aged stone, a testament to the building's hardy character and historic charm.

Fronting the road, the ground and lower ground floors give the building a prominent and inviting face. The rear section introduces the first floor, once upon a time, the sleeping quarters. The thoughtfully designed windows on the valley-facing side gift breath-taking, panoramic views of the serene hills and untouched forest and olive groves spreading across 17,000 square meters of land.

The local surroundings give way to picturesque attributes such as an "Aia." This big, stone-flagged circle, historically used for threshing wheat and processing other country products, adds subtle essences of rural appeal and communal tradition, hinting at a lively past.

Living Area Features:
- Three levels
- Hand-cut stone walls and staircase

Don't miss this unique opportunity to oversee your very own restoration project, tailoring it to your personal preferences. Further, by separate arrangements, adjacent properties can also be acquired to expand your dream homestead and experience an even more immersive slice of country life.
