The property is accessed from a quiet country lane via a gated driveway that leads to a parking area at the side of the house.
The Country Villa
The L-shaped brick-built villa dates from the early 20th century, and was extensively renovated and expanded in 2016/2017. During the renovation, great importance was attached to preserving existing Art Nouveau elements of the building - including the original floor tiles, large double doors, wrought iron windows and ceiling paintings - that give the house its unique atmosphere. The airy, high rooms are particularly attractive, and feature large windows that provide lots of light.
The original Art Nouveau entrance door opens into an entrance hall with an imposing staircase that leads to the first floor. The ground floor features an elegant living room with an open fireplace, a guest room, a bathroom, and a large, cozy, well-equipped country house kitchen with a wood-burning stove and a beautiful, antique vaulted ceiling that gives the room tons of character. A door leads from the kitchen area into the garden and to the outdoor dining area on the south side of the house.
Next to the kitchen there is a storage / utility room (with washing machine), as well as a garage with access to a large underground wine cellar that extends over the entire length of the house. The cellar has a beautiful vaulted brick ceiling and constant temperatures all year round - ideal for storing wine.
An elegant staircase connects the ground floor to the first floor, which features a large bedroom with a private bathroom, another bedroom, an additional bathroom, and a guest suite with a dayroom / sleeping area.
All rooms on the first floor enjoy a wonderful view over the garden, the vineyards and the enchanting landscape beyond. The first floor also features a large panoramic terrace, with a pergola, that is accessed from the garden via an outside staircase and from the guest suite. This terrace is used all year round, and offers a wonderful view of the Monferrato wine hills.
Garden & Pool
The easy-to-maintain garden well stocked with Mediterranean plants, with with roses and lavender in the courtyard area. Two palm trees and an olive tree provide shade for a large dining table - a preferred spot for summer relaxation. The remaining grounds are a large meadow: a vegetable garden and / or an orchard could easily be created here.
The infinity swimming pool (10 x 4 m), built in 2017, gives the impression of a merger of water and sky. It is surrounded on three sides by a large sun terrace.
