Renovated with great care in the year 2000, this original stone cottage is set in the picturesque vineyards and forests of the Langhe region of Piedmont, just 25 minutes from the world-famous town of Alba and only 10 minutes from Barbaresco.
The property is easily reached by a good tarmac road leading up to the house with no passing traffic and no other houses overlooking. Situated on a southward slope, the house has a stunning view on the surrounding hills. The house’ surroundings are private and very peaceful. In front of the house is a large lawned area and below a terraced grove with many different types of fruit trees. Neighbouring lands are mostly vineyards.
The building is in an excellent state of repair and contains two separate living areas so there’s the possibility to rent either part of the house. The main section of the house is over 2 floors: the ground floor comprising a good sized kitchen with open fireplace, living room, store room, a studio that has been used as a potter’s workshop and a bathroom with shower.
On the first floor are 3 spacious bedrooms that flood with sunlight from the south-facing windows, there’s also a bathroom with bath tub and shower.
On the right of the house, on the first floor is a separate apartment. A large open and inviting living space it comprises a large bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Above this a place for children to sleep. This is a wonderful living space that could be used for rental income or private living area if the new owners wanted to rent the larger part of the house.
The house has gas central heating so it’s not a problem to enjoy it all year round. There is mains water, septic tank, Internet is not a problem and there's a gas tank for LPG.
The rear of the house, as you can see in the photos, has been separate from the hillside with a large retaining wall to ensure there are no issues with damp. The area between the house and wall is covered and is used as a wood store. There is a workshop for garden tools and a garage with clever shelving to maximum storage space. There's ample place for a swimming pool.
The house will look fantastic with a coat of exterior paint. The current owners were tempted to paint but decided to keep the price low and let the new owners choose their own colours.
The house is being sold with most of the furniture. With our years of experience we're certain it’s being sold at an excellent price. It’s really not easy to find houses in such a great locations. If you have any doubts, just come and see it anyway, you might be surprised.
Over the years we have helped many people buy homes in this beautiful part of the Langhe. It’s a great choice as prices are considerably lower than the areas around Barolo/Monforte and it retains its rural charm but is still only a short distance from these great wine towns. In fact, one of the most important wine producing towns, Barbaresco, is only minutes away. Also, the view of the mountains around this area are truly breathtaking.
Alba is around 20km distance and Barolo 30km. The autostrada can be reached in 15 minutes so getting to Milan and Turin airports is simple.
