Brits Buy in Sicily for Their Growing Family
Raising their kids on the island of Sicily is a dream come true for ex-Londoners, Jon and Reeva. But squeezing their three children and their home-based travel business into a small three-bedroom rental house is growing on their nerves. They're ready to buy a spacious home of their own on this historic Mediterranean island. They're open to remodeling, and their budget is $730,000 US. Real estate agent Frank Riela has learned to navigate the island's somewhat antiquated real estate practices, and believes he can help Jon and Reeva find the perfect home for their family and business. The first house he shows them has three bedrooms and the potential for a second level, sea-view master suite. But Jon doesn't like the home's close proximity to the neighbors. It's listed for 476,000 US. The next place Frank shows them has five bedrooms, but they are spread across three separate buildings, which means that Jon and Reeva's oldest two children, Francesca and Mia, will be sleeping in a separate structure, and Mia's not happy about that. Also, it's listed for a budget-topping $724,000. The final place Frank shows Jon and Reeva is a total fixer. But it has the potential for 3,800 square feet and is priced at only $361,000 US. Just how much renovation are Jon and Reeva willing to take on? Find out when House Hunters International travels to Sicily, Italy.
