Perfect Roero Country House
Restored to a very high standard, beautiful views and conveniently located just a few minutes from Alba.
Located just 10 minutes north of Alba in the beautiful, and often overlooked hills of the Roero, this beautiful country house has been restored to a perfect standard. The fastidious owner paid attention to every detail of the work so what is now being presented for sale is a beautiful home that will give a lifetime of enjoyment.
The first thing that strikes you on arriving is the amazing view. Rolling hills of vineyards and hazelnut orchards, the Alps and fortified hilltop towns. It truly is breathtaking. A gated driveway leads you to the house and courtyard that has a double carport and garage opposite the house. It's close to a road but above it and it's very calm as it leads to the village and isn't much used for passing traffic.
Every detail of the house is well thought out. The owner, with a sigh, assured us that he spent a small fortune restoring it and we don't doubt him. It's properly insulated, there are not damp issues, no cracks and everything is finished and kept clean.
The ground floor has 2 living rooms, another room that could be used as a study or dining room, a beautiful fitted kitchen, bathroom with shower and a large laundry and storeroom that was once a garage.
On the first floor, there's another large well-lit living room that could be converted into a bedroom. Off of this room are 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom. One of the bedrooms has access to the loft space which is a large bedroom and bathroom, perfect for children or guests.
All floors are solid wood, there are vaulted ceilings in most rooms, high-quality double-glazed windows and shutters, fly screens, blinds, alarm system and a beautiful iron gate at the entrance.
At the rear of the house is a covered terrace that in the warm months (May to October) is a great dining and relaxing place with incredible views you'll never tired of. There's room for a pool and above the house a piece of land with different types of trees and ample space for a vegetable garden.
There are all the usual services such as high-speed internet, electricity and water. The heating system is powered by oil and is very economical as the local area is eligible for a reduced price due to there not being gas available. The house can be heated for around €1,000 a year! Property tax is very low.
This is a beautiful turnkey property for a couple that has regular guests. It's one of the most impressive homes we've come across. The price is negotiable. Book a viewing soon as this is the type of property that tends to sell very quickly and it's rare to find something in this condition and quality. Price is negotiable.
The Roero is a beautiful part of Piedmont. Located north of the city of Alba and west of Asti it's a much bigger wine producing area than the Langhe. The soil is very different, so Roero was formed to allow wine producers to name their wines in a way that would make them stand out from what is produced in the Langhe and Monferatto. The house is right in the heart of this and is a great location. A few minutes and you're into Alba, Canale, Asti. All through incredible scenery and enough wine producers and restaurants in the area to keep you busy for many many years.
Within walking distance are several wine producers and a restaurant. A short drive and you're into a town with everything you need including supermarkets, Michelin star restaurants, open markets, pizzeria, etc.
Getting to Turin or Milan is easy via good roads.
