Historic and meticulously restored 18th century villa for sale close to Acqui Terme in Piedmont
This manorial Italian property for sale is situated in the gentle cultivated landscape of southern Piedmont within the former Margraviate of Montferrat and close to the town Acqui Terme, famous for its hot thermal springs. The heritage villa was last and tastefully restored in 2009/2010. These restoration works seamlessly united the original historic character with up-to-date technology and equipment. The original layout was ingeniously adapted to create a beautiful private residence (approx. 269 m²), an exclusive rental business with six spacious apartments (approx. 322 m²) for 2-4 guests each, as well as a reception area with fireplace and wine cellar, a sauna and several housekeeping and storage rooms (approx. 157 m²). The current layout can easily be adapted to suit individual requirements. Architectural details like the grand ceiling paintings in some of the rooms were elaborately refreshed and the furniture with selected antiques and colour matching decorations adapted to match the historic ambience of the villa. Two apartments feature private terraces and all apartments offer fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms with walk-in closets. The private side-wing comprises an eat-in kitchen with access to the private terrace (approx. 60 m²), which, in conjunction with the beautiful reception area, can also be used for functions and events. A guest WC and a laundry are also located on the ground floor of the private side-wing. The first floor offers a light-flooded living room with fireplace and a large bedroom/studio with an en-suite bathroom by Philippe Starck. The second floor consists of a second large bedroom/studio, a library with gallery (could also be used as a third bedroom) and a bathroom by Versace, which is accessible from both rooms. A large and very well-tended park with swimming pool, terraces, Boule area, barbecue, an old and disused vineyard and two wooded areas complete this special property. The stated sales price is without furniture, as an option the partial furnishing and the art can be taken over for further 200,000 euros. The near town Acqui Terme and the surrounding area offer everything the heart desires, from star-rated restaurants to pizza places, several thermal springs and golf courses, as well as ample opportunities to taste and enjoy famous local produce such as wine, grappa, olive oil and truffles.
