High above the wine town of Canelli and surrounded by the Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont UNESCO World Heritage zone, this small estate enjoys an outstanding south-west facing location with unobstructed views of rolling vineyards as far as the Swiss Alps in the north and the French Alps in the west.
The property is located at the end of a small private country road that leads up to the gate. Canelli, reachable in a few minutes by car, has all the facilities required for day-to-day life, and is famous for its wineries and impressive historic wine cellars, the so-called 'underground cathedrals', which have been used to mature the exquisite local sparkling wines for over 150 years.
Built in the typical style of a Piedmontese wine-growing cascina, the house is over 100 years old. Inhabited until two years ago, it is structurally in a very good condition: the roof is new, and the living areas have central heating. The parts of the house formerly used for agricultural purposes offer interesting expansion potential: for example, and stable and hayloft could easily be incorporated into the habitable space.
The ground floor includes two large and two small rooms, a toilet, and a storage room / portico with access to an underground wine cellar.
A staircase in the middle of the house leads to the first floor. Currently there is one large and one small bedroom, a balcony and a simple bathroom, plus a hayloft that could be used for further bedrooms.
Services: mains water and electricity, central heating
From the gate, the driveway ends at a large courtyard on the south side of the house. The property includes a fruit and vegetable garden, a mature vineyard of about 4000 m² and a hazelnut grove. There is enough space to create both a garden and a swimming pool.
Our personal opinion: If you are willing renovate, here is an ideal property in a dream location - scenic, tranquil and private, yet only minutes from the town center. The structurally-sound building, surrounded on all sides by its own land, is spacious but not too big - an ideal spot to fulfill your Italian dream.
