The estate, situated in the locality of Ronchi near the cemetery of Pieve di Cadore, 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 placed in the exquisite natural environment of the woods of the Cadore region.
The building consists of two floors above ground with a mixed bearing structure in masonry and bricks, and a gable roof with wooden structure and covering in corrugated steel sheets. It has an appurtenant outdoor area and is accessible from the cycle path level.
It is currently unused and devoid of technological systems and of fixtures, except for the wooden entrance door. It needs a total recovery intervention both in its structure and in its finishes.
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 “Roccolo” 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.
