The estate, situated in Pieve di Cadore near the state road SS 51bis in the Lunga via delle Dolomiti, consists of a former signalman’s house along the abandoned Ferrovia delle Dolomiti, the railway line that connected Calalzo with Dobbiaco, now used as a hiking and cycling trail. It is only accessible from the cycle path.
The estate is placed in the exquisite natural environment of the woods of the Cadore region
The estate is made of two buildings, the original unit, consisting of two floors above ground with masonry structure, and the adjacent one-storey expansion with brick structure. It has a gable roof with wooden structure and covering in corrugated steel sheets. It is without an appurtenant outdoor area; the plot of land on which it is built is property of the Town of Pieve di Cadore, since it is a portion of the cycle path.
It is devoid of technological systems and of fixtures, except for the wooden entrance door, and some windows have been walled up.
Pieve di Cadore, birthplace of the famous painter Titian, is recognized as “city of art” for the richness of its historical, artistic and natural heritage, and as “walled city” for its 19th century defence system, consisting of the fortifications of Mount Ricco, Batteria Castello and Col Vaccher.
The town is crossed by the Dolomites Cycling Route, by the Lorenzago-Cortina cycling route and by the Long Road of the Dolomites. Nearby, along the bike path, there are also the state-owned former signalman’s house “Ronchi” and railway station “Sottocastello”.
Pieve di Cadore is accessible through the State Road SS51 “Alemagna”, which is connected to the highway A24, which in turn is linked near Venice to the highway A4. The nearest railway station is Calalzo, while the nearest airports to reach the area of Cadore are Venice and Treviso, both with bus connections to the district of Belluno.
