This property enjoys a wonderful location in a small borgo in the heart of the Langhe, just 15 minutes from the truffle town of Alba. Close to a village with basic facilities, the famous wine centers of Monforte d'Alba, Serralunga, Grinzane Cavour and Barolo are not far away.
The borgo comprises four partially-inhabited buildings at the end of its own access road, which ends at the entrance gate into the property.
The ancient stone house has been elaborately renovated and is perfectly habitable - the recent renovation placed great emphasis not only on preserving traditional architecture, but also on sustainability: hot-water solar panels and a photovoltaic system were installed. In addition, a private well provides a reliable water supply that also feeds a dedicated irrigation system. Both house and garden have been laid out following Feng-Shui guidelines, offering a relaxed lifestyle around the year.
The ground floor is home to a cozy kitchen and an adjoining living room. Glass doors lead from the living room to a covered terrace and the garden. The ground floor also features a bedroom, a guest WC and a large utility room.
A staircase leads up from the entrance to the first floor: a second spiral staircase connects the living room with the day room above it on the first floor.
The first floor includes 3 bedrooms, a spacious bathroom, a small storage room, and a day room with a small kitchenette and access to a roofed terrace.
A staircase leads from the first floor to the developed, habitable attic space. Under a well-insulated roof, this room offers a versatile means of extending the available accommodation area.
Services: Well water, mains electricity, central heating, solar hot water panels, photovoltaic system, internet
Some distance from the main house, the newly-built outbuilding is currently used as a garage. However, it was built with a view to adding a living area of approx. 100 m²: if the interior finishing were to be completed, the building could, for example, be used for vacation rental accommodation, or for a studio / workshop.
The property has a total of about 25,000 m² of land, mainly woodland. A garden has been created around the house, and between the main building and the outbuilding there is a large courtyard and a meadow, with plenty of space for a spacious swimming pool.
Our personal opinion: in a prime location, this is a very flexible property that offers significant potential for further development, but is also suitable for immediate occupation.
