This charming historic country villa dating back to the 18th century and owned initially by members of the Savoy royal family has been recently and carefully restored to its former splendour. Set in a 4000 sq meter garden with sweeping views of the Piemontese countryside and the towering Alps in the background, the house has maintained many of the period features like vaulted brick ceilings, ancient wooden doors and cotto floors which, combined with the timeless elegance of its classical shape, define this estate’s unique character. The meticulous renovation, while maintaining the villa’s genuine charm, has equipped it with all modern-day conveniences expected of a truely exclusive property. The house spreads over three floors. The ground floor entrance hall is accessed through a classical portico and leads to a kitchen, a dining room and a guest toilet. A finely shaped staircase leads to the 1st floor with an impressive living room with ancient fireplace and a master bedroom with en-suite bath complete with a Jacuzzi. The second, attic floor features a sitting room with exposed beams, two bedrooms and a full-size bathroom. A small roof-top tower allows one to admire unrivalled 360 degree vistas. The completely fenced garden with several pleasant outdoor sitting areas contains an 8x5 meter pool. The property benefits from an excellent location with bustling Turin, the Mediterranean beaches and several first-class Alpine ski resorts all just a 45 minute drive away. A train station with good rail connections to many destinations is only 6 miles away, while the world-famous wine making area of the Langhe with Barolo, La Morra and Barbaresco may be reached by car in just 20 minutes. Last but not least, the villa has a proven income-generating potential as a vacation rental property.
