This attractive vineyard property occupies a quiet secluded hillside location with wonderful panoramic views over the Monferrato wine hills to the Swiss Alps beyond. The nearby village features basic facilities, while the wine town of Nizza Monferrato, easily reached in 10 minutes by car, offers all the modern conveniences necessary for day-to-day life.
The distance to the larger towns of Asti, Alba and Acqui Terme, as well the nearest autostrada / motorway, is around 20 km. 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 are a day trip away.
Access to the property is good: the approaching country lane ends at an automatic gate that leads into the paved courtyard, which includes parking for several vehicles plus a few large trees that provide welcome shade.
The antique farmhouse, renovated and well-maintained by the current owners over the past few years, is in an excellent condition.
Ground Floor & Guest Area
The main entrance leads into a spacious reception room and a 56 m2 living/dining room with an antique vaulted brick ceiling and an open fireplace, plus a small open kitchen to one side. Adjacent to the living/dining room are three double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, which have been used as B&B guest rooms in the past.
Also on the ground floor is one of the two holiday apartments, which includes a living/dining room with a kitchenette and access to a terrace, a bedroom and a bathroom. The three guest rooms can be rented out together with the holiday apartment, so the holiday apartment can optionally include four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
An L-shaped covered terrace/portico in the entrance area in front of the house offers an outdoor seating and dining area, with easy access to the kitchen, that is very popular in the summer months.
A staircase leads from the ground floor to the proprietor's accommodation on the first floor. This includes two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen with an exit to a long balcony plus a pantry, a very spacious living room with an open fireplace and gallery, a separate dining room, another room that is used as an office, a utility room, and large terrace with a magnificent view.
The second holiday apartment, also on the first floor, has its own entrance from the courtyard and a small outside seating area. It features a living/dining room with a kitchen area, a double bedroom and a bathroom.
Garages & Storage Rooms
To the rear of the building on the ground floor, with access from the courtyard, are three large storage rooms/garages. Wine is stored here prior to sale, and there is plenty of space for vineyard equipment etc. The boiler room, housing the pellet-fired central heating system, is also located here, together with a small workshop, also accessible from the courtyard.
Garden & Swimming Pool
The garden surrounding the courtyard is easy to maintain and well-stocked with flowering bushes and trees. Adjacent the outdoor seating area in the portico (roofed terrace) is a brick-built grill.
Close to the entrance gate, and separated from the courtyard by a low wall, the sun terrace surrounding the 12 x 5 m swimming pool offers a wonderful view over the surrounding countryside. The roofed bar beside the pool is at water level - making it a wonderful place to relax and celebrate.
Vineyard & Grounds
About 3 Ha of the 5.6 Ha grounds are vineyards. 1 Ha is currently planted with Moscato grapes and is in production: this vineyard is currently leased to a neighbour. 1 Ha was planted with Nebbiolo grapes in 2022, and will go into production in 2025. 1 Ha was previously a Barbera d'Asti vineyard, and is now awaiting replanting: the new owner can choose from a wide range of grape varieties.
The remaining grounds are meadows and forest which are only sporadically maintained.
The current owners had the grapes vinified by an experienced local winemaker, and have marketed and sold the wines under their own label. This arrangement can be continued by a new owner; the vendor will be happy to pass on all the relevant contacts to the buyer. Alternatively, the new owner could outsource the vineyard maintenance, and simply sell the grapes.
