This well-maintained property enjoys a fantastic panoramic position, very close to the attractive spa town of Acqui Terme. An access road leads from a little-used country lane past a neighboring courtyard to an electric gate and to the forecourt, where there are several parking spaces. The location of the property is very private and completely undisturbed, without being isolated - Acqui Terme town center with its first class shopping, hotels, restaurants, bars, markets, schools and extensive sports, leisure and health facilities can be easily reached in 10 minutes by car. The property is also about 2 km from a small hilltop village with a bar, a post and community office, a grocery store, a butcher and a pharmacy.
The travel time to the international airports of Milan, Turin and Genoa is around 60 to 90 minutes, and the Riviera with its beaches can be reached in around 45 minutes. Well-known destinations on the coast such as Portofino, San Remo and Monte Carlo in France are also a day trip from here, as are the ski resorts of Sestriere, Cervinia and Courmayeur in northern Piedmont.
The Country Villa
Built in the Italian villa style around 10 years ago, the building is earthquake-proof according to Swiss standards - quality and safety have been given priority throughout. The house is positioned so that the magnificent view can be enjoyed from the main rooms, which are all on the same level and feature large windows. It is habitable all year round, and can therefore be used either as a holiday home or as a year-round residence. The building has a cellar, and could be extended if required.
The villa has several entrances - the main entrance is on the courtyard side. The building features a very large living-dining room with a wood stove and an open, modern kitchen area - it has a ceiling height of 4.40 m and exposed roof beams that create a spacious and airy ambience. The two large glass doors that lead outside give the room plenty of light.
To the rear of the house are 3 double bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom, plus another bathroom that also houses a washing machine and dryer. All 3 bedrooms have air conditioning.
To the front of the living area is a very large covered terrace with access to the garden and the pool. This is perfect for al fresco dining in the summer months.
The building has a partial cellar plus a very practical utility room.
The Garden, Swimming pool & Outbuildings
Around the house is a low-maintenance garden with lawns, flowering bushes and a few fruit trees. A special highlight is the 22m x 5m salt water swimming pool (22m x 5m) that is surrounded by a large pool terrace enjoying a magnificent view.
Beside the pool is a long outbuilding with a covered seating area and a garage for the tractor. This building could be further expanded if necessary.
A vineyard of about 5000 m² is located on the slope behind the house. This vineyard is planted with about 3000 Barbera and Dolcetto vines and is worked by the neighbor, a wine producer. The neighbor pays rent in kind for the vineyard in the form of 300 excellent bottles of wine per year.
