A wonderful, fully restored country house immersed in the Langhe hills a short distance from Alba and the Barolo wine area.
With no neighbours overlooking you will enjoy total privacy here without feeling isolated from the outside world. The well thought out garden space is the perfect place to enjoy meals in the summer sun and pleasant warm evenings. (Outside space in Piedmont can be enjoyed from June to October, sometimes even longer). To the side of the house is a small field that’s a perfect plot of a swimming pool. On the side of the house is a car-port with enough parking for 2-3 cars and ample parking for around 10 cars on this side of the house. Asking price is around €990,000.
The living space is over 2 levels in 2 sections as well as a cellar that’s currently used as a workshop but is just right for storing wine.
The ground floor has a room that can be used as a study, living room or bedroom. Next to this is the first of two stairways and a large bathroom. A long dining room leads to the kitchen and the onto the main living room - a beautiful room with vaulted ceiling and that floods with natural light. Here there’s the 2nd stairway to the first floor.
The first floor is divided into two sections. This is most useful if you’re 2 or 3 people living in the house but have many guests, as you can close this part of the house when not in use - it has a separate heating system. The right section has 2 bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The left section is much larger, it has a total of 3 bedrooms. One bedroom has access to the tower room bedroom, there's another bedroom and 2 bathrooms. At the far end is a beautiful living room with arched windows that has incredible views over the courtyard and surrounding hills. Take the stairs down from here and we arrive back in the long dining room.
The restoration is very high quality and everything is in great condition and presented in exceptionally good order by very proud owners.
There’s gas, water, electricity and Internet connection. The house is secure with gates at the end of the long drive and has an alarm system.
The gardens and land around the house measure approximately 8,000 sqm. On the surrounding hills are 12,000 sqm (3 acres) of hazelnut orchards and a small Dolcetto vineyard. Contact us for more information about hazelnuts, their value and the growing demand for orchards in the area. In front of the house, just below, is a old stone building that could be converted into living space.
We can’t overstate how beautiful the immediate area is. You have to visit to see for yourself. Drive down the hills and within 15 minutes you’re in the centre of Alba. 15 minutes in the other direction and you’re in the heart of the Barolo wine producing area and the drive will take you on roads that offer some of the best views you’ll ever see. Price is around €980,000 - negotiable.
