Period villa with vineyard for sale on the hill above Alba
On the hillside just five minutes from the centre of Alba - renowned capital of the Langhe, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous throughout the world for its fine wines and fragrant truffles - with a 360° panoramic view over the green hills, the chain of the Alps and the town. This prestigious historical residence, an elegant country house which represents a very rare investment opportunity on the hillside of Alba, is surrounded by approximately 24,000 square metres of land including a superb vineyard.
The property, accessible via the road that crosses its private land, is on two levels and comprises six rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor, with a living room, kitchen, four rooms and a bathroom on the upper floor, totalling approximately 360 square metres.
The building, which enjoys splendid views from every opening, is in excellent structural condition and still has period coloured tiled floors. In order to bring it up to today's standards, it requires the complete renovation of the plumbing and wiring systems, as well as a redistribution of the spaces.
Adjoining the main body are two large rooms measuring about 150 square metres in total. These consist, on the ground floor, of the former stable with its beautiful brick vaults and, on the first floor, of the old hayloft with its characteristic arched openings, and are of great value for increasing the living space with different solutions.
At the boundary of the garden, there is another two-storey building measuring a total of approx. 100 square metres, currently used as a storage room / hayloft. This offers the opportunity to create a characteristic panoramic annexe or garage and hobby room.
The significant amount of land included in the property allows would allow the construction of a large swimming pool as well as various areas equipped for leisure activities and relaxation.
The size and position of the structure offer huge potential for both residential and tourist accommodation.
