This small vineyard property is located on a sunny ridge with fantastic panoramic views over vine-clad hills, close to the market town of Nizza Monferrato. Reached in only 5 minutes by car, Nizza offers all the facilities needed for day-to-day living.
The distance to the larger towns of Asti, Alba and Acqui Terme is around 25 km, the international airports of Milan, Turin and Genoa can all be reached within 90 minutes, while the beaches of the Italian Riviera and the ski resorts of the western Alps are a day trip away.
The large, elongated building, built at the end of the 19th century, faces south-east and was originally split into two separate properties. It comprises the renovated main house and an attached, partly-renovated, smaller second house. The composite building, now a single property, enjoys beautiful views towards the south-east and towards the Swiss Alps in the north.
The Main House
The ground floor features a spacious entrance hall, a large, cozy kitchen with a breakfast area, a dining room, a living room with a wood burner, a large utility room, and a guest WC.
A portico (covered terrace) runs the full length of the main house: from here you can enjoy the fantastic views over the vineyards of the Monferrato to the peaks of the Swiss Alps. A door leads from the portico into the kitchen.
Two flights of stairs lead to the first floor, home to 5 large sunny bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms.
Attached to the side of the main house, a large outbuilding/garage can accommodate all the machinery required for tending the vineyards.
The Second House
The second house is only partly renovated, and is ideal for further development. It could easily be expanded into a single independent unit, or into two separate apartments - either option would be highly suitable for the vacation rental market.
The two large rooms on the ground floor are in need of renovation. In addition there is a beautiful antique wine cellar and a large garage / storage room.
The first floor includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and a living room.
The property is located on very quiet country lane with little traffic, and is fenced in on the street side. There are two entrance gates, one for each house. In front and to the side of the main house is a large courtyard and a well-kept garden with lawns, mature trees, a boccia alley, and an orchard with various fruit trees. There is enough space for a swimming pool.
The house and the garden are surrounded on three sides by well-tended vineyards that are planted with the red grape variety Barbera d'Asti DOC. The harvest is currently sold in the generic grape market, but could also, if desired, be processed by a local trusted winemaker into a high-quality wine under the owner's own brand.
