Renovated country house – Vigliano d’Asti
Property Ref: HIP088
Price: €255.000 – FINISHED
This is a large structurally sound and well renovated country house located in the small village (frazione) of Sabbionera, just a few kilometres outside the market town of Vigliano d’Asti. Here you will be living among a small cluster of houses at the very end of a small village road, – so no noise or disturbance, – just nice friendly and helpful Italian neighbours.
The house was bought about a decade ago and has since then been slowly and patiently renovated by the current owner, so that it today is ready to move into with new roof, windows, shutters, floors, heating, plumbing and electricity.
During the renovation the owner has carefully retained as many of the old features as possible (e.g. the arched Piemontese ceilings, wooden roof beams and floor tiles) while making sure that the comfort of modern living is achieved.
On the ground floor the property consists of a cosy country kitchen with the antique fireplace retained and with an adjacent dining area. On the ground floor one also finds a large living room with a woodburning stove, a storage room a toilet and a separate storage/utility room with its own entrance.
A wide and not too steep staircase leads to the upper two stories where the owner has avoided creating lots of small rooms, but instead chosen to create 2 much larger than normal bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor as well as one the second floor. The master bedroom on the second floor has a large private westerly terrace from where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The bedrooms benefit from high ceilings as well as light filling the rooms from windows on either side of the building. In some of the bedrooms it has been possible to retain the old floor tiles.
The classic Piemontese cellar has been restored with its big original arches in red brick. A beautiful place to store your wine or entertain your guests in the hot summer months.
In addition to this main house the owner has converted a small classic old farm building across the courtyard to a garage on the ground floor and an independent bedroom with bathroom on the first floor. In this cosy little “hide out” the views from the Juliet balcony are just fantastic.
The house is accessed via a small communal road and a neighbouring cortile but has its own private courtyard. Communal water, power and gas (for heating) is already installed.
