This well-maintained property is located in the UNESCO vineyard landscape of Monferrato, a few kilometers away from the charming spa town of Acqui Terme. On its own hill and surrounded by vineyards, the house enjoys panoramic 360 degree views. There are no direct neighbours, yet the property is not lonely: the nearest village, about 2km from the house, is within sight.
The village offers basic shops, a pharmacy and a very good restaurant, while Acqui Terme has everything needed for daily living, plus a lively cultural scene, a golf course, hotels, spa facilities, lots of restaurants, and much more.
The house was extensively renovated and adapted by the present owners, and is now split into two separate, independent units. One is occupied by the owner, and the other is used as guest accommodation - if required, it could be used for vacation rentals to generate an additional income. The house is well-maintained, and can be inhabited all year round. All the rooms have plenty of light and a magnificent view over the magnificent Monferrato wine hills.
Apartment 1 has a separate entrance from the terrace, and comprises an open kitchen with a dining area, plus 2 large bedrooms, each with a private bathroom.
Next to Apartment 1 there is an area, currently only accessible from the outside, that is used as a massage room: it has a water supply, and could be integrated into the apartment. A storage room and the boiler room are also on located the ground floor.
Outdoor stairs lead up to the terrace of Apartment 2, which has a large living-dining room with a fireplace and a kitchen area, two large bedrooms, and a bathroom.
Services: the house has 6 kW of photovoltaic solar panels, electricity, water, telephone, and gas central heating - the two units can be heated independently.
Originally a farm building, today the outbuilding has a large work area and a spacious garage for agricultural machinery.
A small outside staircase leads down to the solar-heated swimming pool. Built into the hillside, the south-facing pool and pool terrace are wonderfully sheltered: thanks to the solar heating, the pool can be comfortably used for 8 months of the year.
The private access road ends at the property. An electrically-operated gate leads to the well-maintained courtyard and lawn area, where the many flowering bushes and shrubs - including roses, oleander, olive trees and palm trees - give the garden a very Mediterranean feel. On the south side of the house, a spacious, partially-glazed portico provides a perfect outdoor seating area - with great views, a brick pizza oven and a summer kitchen.
The remaining land includes an orchard, a vegetable garden and a large meadow. Adjacent to the property there is a vineyard of about 8000 m², which can be purchased separately if required.
Our personal opinion: this is a property with a sensational location, usable all-year-round and offering very flexible accommodation.
