Fully restored farmhouse with pool in Vaglio Serra
Property Ref: HIP070
Price: €540.000 – FINISHED / FURNISHED
On the borders of Vaglio Serra, Cortiglione and Vinchio this fully renovated farmhouse house is a paradise for nature lovers and hikers as the property is nestled in the 200 hectare Val Sarmassa Nature Reserve with its rich flora and fauna.
The house, partly constructed using bricks from the old Palazzo in Cortiglione, was renovated by the current owner app. 20 years ago and is currently laid out as a charming three-bedroom house spread over two floors. During the renovation the owner installed new electricity, plumbing, doors, windows with insect screens as well as renovated the roof.
The ground floor consists of a nice regular and modern kitchen / dining room as well as a compact living room with a wonderful marble fireplace. Also on the ground floor one finds a good sized bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom with bathtub. An adjacent room was initially intended as a formal dining room but is currently used as a music room.
A nice, tiled staircase leads to the first floor which contains 2 really good sized bedrooms with visible wooden roof beams, one of them with another marble fireplace, plus a small open plan lounge area currently used as an office space. A larger than normal bathroom, with a small adjacent laundry room, benefits from being light and airy.
From this first floor there is direct access to a fantastic 5 x 10 meter pool with increasing depth. The surrounding pool area consists of a large terrace with plenty of space of sunlounges, dining and BBQ areas. The pool terrace, with its total privacy, leads directly on to the well maintained garden and a mature hazelnut orchard.
During the renovation the owner has very cleverly retained a lot of the old farmhouse features such as the old vaulted ceilings, some floor tiles, marble fireplaces and wooden roof beams. The house has therefore retained a warm and cosy feeling and is ready to move into as it is being sold partly furnished.
In addition the house benefits from a complete burglar alarm system with video surveillance connected directly to the police as well as the owners computers.
The garden is mature and well laid out with focus on low maintenance. However, the property also includes large piece of land, previously a vineyard, which is currently planted with grass to ensure minimum maintenance.
The house has central heating via GPL gas and a relatively new gas boiler.
We believe this is a unique property which it would be exceedingly difficult to get building permits to in the present day. With a fantastic pool area, lots of charm and privacy yet is a short distance from the local villages with their cafés, restaurants and supermarkets – this truly is something special.
