Monforte d’Alba country house for sale
In a position overlooking prestigious Barolo vineyards and the Alps, this detached country property, with its own garden and farmland, is the last part of a small rural settlement. Part of the property was originally used as a private home, while the remainder was occupied by the village school.
The building dates back to the mid-1800s and was renovated by the current owners, mainly using bioconstruction techniques and paying considerable attention to the use of natural materials. The main part of the house occupies the first floor, which consists of a large open space comprising living room, dining area, fitted kitchen and two bedrooms with a bathroom.
An independent flat on the ground floor comprises kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, which can be used for guests, as a caretaker’s flat or for holiday rental.
A separate room on the ground floor, built entirely in Langa stone, opens out onto the valley. Originally used as storage for farm equipment, it is now the ideal place for serving refreshments in the cool shade on a hot summer day.
A characteristic brick portico, the former school adjacent to the house, and a small two-storey building measuring an approximate total of 60 m2 are all available for renovation and transformation into additional living spaces.
The structure is suitable for use as a use as a home for more than one family.
POSSIBILITY TO BUY about 40,000 m2 of land, 10,000 of which are occupied by woodland, with the remining 30,000 currently used for the farming of a variety of seed crops
