Restored village house for sale with swimming pool and panoramic views
This restored village house for sale is located above a historic village centre in Piedmont with surrounding garden, terraces and swimming pool. The house and garden offer plenty of sunshine from the early morning until the evening and breathtaking panoramic views across the village and the hills. The location in the “Langa Astigiana” in the Val Bormida between Asti and Acqui Terme close to the famous wine-growing areas Barbaresco and Barolo make this property a real gem and truly special. While restoring much attention was placed on preservation of old building particulars, overall building structure and the over 250 years old facade of the house. All old stone and brick vaults on the inside were refreshed and recovered under layers of paint and plaster. In contrast to the old building structure all interior fittings and equipment were brought to a contemporary living standard. The house offers seven double bedrooms, seven bathrooms, an additional bedroom on a gallery, a modern and open-plan eat-in kitchen, Swedish oven and a historic wood-fired oven. A thought-out layout allows to separate three double bedrooms, three bathrooms and an eat-in kitchen with fireplace from the rest of the house for friends and guests. A terrace with wood-fired oven, sunshade and access to the garden is directly accessible from the large kitchen. The swimming pool (15 m x 3,5 m) was fitted onto one of the terraces with an additional smaller pool for children just below. The infinity edge offers beautiful panoramic views across the village and the valley while swimming. The Rotex gas/solar heating system in the larger part of the house is fed through solar panels (16 m²) on the roof and supported by a hot water storage tank (1,000 litres) in the heater room and a water reservoir with pressure balance. A Vaillant heating system is installed in the smaller part of the house. The entire garden is terraced with typical stone walls. A part of the garden was used for wine-growing in the past. The village offers shops, bar, restaurant, petrol station, bus stop and a hairdresser and is only 1.2 km away by car. The old village can be reached on foot in about 600 m. The house can be used as private residence or as capital investment with annual revenues of about Euro 100,000 (28 weeks/year).
