This wonderful antique country house occupies an idyllic position at the end of a quiet lane country 5 minutes by car from the nearest village - the small wine town of Nizza Monferrato is 5 kilometers away. The larger towns of Asti, Alba and Acqui Terme are less than 30 km away. The international airports of Milan, Turin and Genoa can be reached in 60 to 90 minutes - the beaches of the Riviera and the ski resorts in the Western Alps in about one hour.
There are no immediate neighbours: the property is surrounded by meadows, vineyards and a truffle grove - it enjoys a beautiful view over the vineyards to the southwest. The nearby village has good infrastructure, while Nizza Monferrato and the adjacent town of Canelli both offer excellent facilities - the area has many first-class restaurants, many wine producers, big and small, and various sporting, cultural and entertainment offerings.
More than 200 years old, the building is a typical Piedmontese winemaker's house that originally comprised 2 separate units - today, the two residential halves are connected on the first floor. There are therefore 2 entrances and 2 staircases, which gives plenty of scope for the building to be developed into a retreat or a B&B. While the house is currently vacant, plans have been drawn up to install 4 apartments, or 4 luxurious guest suites, plus a residential unit for private use.
Renovated by the previous owner, the building is now in a habitable condition - the roof has been renewed and insulated, and the renovation placed great emphasis on the preservation of historical elements that give the house its unique character and special flair. The house faces south, so all the rooms have plenty of light - they are also generously dimensioned.
A large day room, a country kitchen, a large living room with an open fireplace, a smaller living room with a fireplace, 2 storerooms, a bathroom, plus a separate living unit with a private entrance, kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom.
A bedroom with a large bathroom and panoramic terrace, 5 more bedrooms, a bathroom, plus a large converted hayloft that could be converted into a separate residential unit.
Services: mains water and electricity; central heating
The property is partially enclosed with a fence; the small access road ends at the gate to the property. The garden on the south side of the house comprises a large lawn with trees and flowering shrubs that offer pleasant shaded seating areas. To the side of the house the property includes a large meadow with a view to the southwest - an ideal spot for a swimming pool.
Our personal opinion: this property could be transformed into a small paradise. Ideal for implementing a small retreat or B&B, it enjoys a very central location amidst the UNESCO 'Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont' World Heritage site.
