This beautiful, peaceful retreat is hidden away on the edge of a conservation area, just 2 km from a small town that offers all of life's daily necessities - including shops, restaurants, bars, schools, banks and medical services. Asti and Alessandria can each be easily reached within 20 minutes. The property enjoys a completely private location at the end of a quiet country lane.
Originally a vineyard farmhouse, the 200 years old two-storey building has been comprehensively and creatively renovated by the present owners. Great care has been taken care to preserve the original character, providing generous and uncomplicated accommodation with lots of imagination and charm. The mixture of old and new features, at turns both surprising and practical, blend into a pleasing and harmonious whole.
The ground floor includes a large original kitchen with a pantry, a bathroom and a large living room with impressive brick vaults. Both the kitchen and the living room have glass doors leading into the garden. A large utility room, only accessible from the garden, houses the central heating system.
A central staircase leads to the first floor. The master bedroom here has a large ensuite bathroom with a freestanding bathtub, shower, WC and bidet. The first floor also includes a further bedroom and bathroom.
The staircase continues to the second floor, occupied by two further bedrooms - one currently used as a day room - and an additional bathroom, all with full ceiling height.

To the side of the main house there is also an open double garage, directly accessible from the driveway leading to the house.
The lovingly-maintained garden feautures both flowering and evergreen shrubs and trees, a covered pergola, a well-kept lawn, fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Overall, the garden impresses the visitor with an aura of peaceful and timeless tranquility.
