Country house with fantastic vaulted ceilings and view of Monviso
Typical Piedmontese - cascina - country house with fantastic vaulted ceilings in the heart of the Dolcetto wine region. The house is situated on a hilltop and offers a breathtaking view of the mountain range of the Maritime Alps with the majestic Monviso (3,841m). The origins of the house are more than 300 years old. At the beginning of the last century, it was a well-known winery producing the famous Dolcetto wine from the surrounding vineyards. In 2011/2012, the house was remodelled by the current owner. The cascina extends over 3 floors. The ground floor is divided as follows: Large functional kitchen with barrel vaulted ceiling, a living/dining room of about 75 m² with spectacular vaulted ceiling and modern fireplace, a studio, a bathroom with shower, utility room with washing machine, dryer and home automation, a fitness room and 2 large rooms with parquet floors.

The vaulted, brick roof is simply spectacular. The Cascina is situated in the middle of an approx. 1.1 hectare fenced manicured park with large old trees, shrubs and flowers as well as a beautifully maintained large lawn and with a natural stone pool 11 x 4.6 m. The house is situated in the hills on the edge of the Langhe, where nature gives grapes, hazelnuts and truffles. Excursions into the Langhe offer a varied landscape with views of the Maritime Alps.
