Classic farmhouse with endless views, near Boglietto
Property Ref: HIP0119
This classic farmhouse is a slightly larger than normal farmhouses as it is built in an “L shape”, measuring app. 300 sq.mt. in total. The house itself is around 100 years old and sits high on the ground with some of the most spectacular south and westerly views towards the rolling hills of the Langhe.
The house needs total renovation but benefits from a good roof which significantly reduces the complexity and cost of the future renovation.
Once ready the home will give you a spectacular kitchen / dining room with amazing views and potentially a cosy first floor living room with fireplace and access to 30 sq.mt. first floor terrace. In addition, the house is likely to offer you 4 – 5 bedrooms, necessary storage, technical area and bathrooms. In addition, the house includes a very large underground cantina with one of the beautiful single spans Piemonte arches – perfect for producing or storing your own wine as this room has stable temperature all year around.
The house itself needs total renovation but we know the reliable builders, geometras and architects who would love to work with you in getting the very best out the many opportunities this project represents.
Current ground floor
Consists of a single room to the right of the beautiful old central staircase as well as a room to the left. However, as the house in built in L shape the building will allow you to expand the room on the left into what was originally the stable and storage area for agricultural machines. This approach will allow you to create a single room measuring app. 90 sq.mt. with direct access to your terrace and swimming pool – ideal for an enormous kitchen / dining area / living area with endless views over the rolling hills. As an alternative one could create a light staircase leading up to the old hayloft where one idea could be to create a super living / relax area with direct access to a 30 sq.mt. first floor terrace.
Current first floor
On the first floor one currently finds 3 good sized bedrooms, all with southerly views and therefore all very light and airy. Should you choose to use only the ground floor as kitchen / dining / living you will also have the old hayloft in which to create a 4th. Bedroom. As part of the renovation project, it would be possible to create 2 – 3 bathrooms on this first floor.
Under the main building, one also finds the most fantastic Cantina with a “deep vaulted ceiling” (one single and very large arch). This is already an impressive room but once renovated it will give you ample space for producing and/or storing your wine and also to create a tasting area large enough for both your family and friends.
The project is located near the very top of a hill just outside Boglietto, home to Distillery Beccaris, famous for its fantastic Grappa and fortified wines. Also, within easy driving distance you will find the villages of Canelli, Santo Stefano Belbo, Castagnole Delle Lanze and of course Cortiglione D’Asti. Here you will be spoilt for choice regarding shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants. Especially Castagnole Delle Lanze is famous for its fantastic music events.
The property includes app. 0,5 hectares of existing vineyards. App. 3,500 sq.mt. is planted with the local Barbera grape and app. 1,500 sq.mt. with Moscato grape. Both vineyards are officially DOC registered which means that you have the ability to produce your own wine under the region’s classifications.
The property is accessed via a communal asphalt road and has access to the electricity grid as well as the communal water system. Future heating will likely be either via LPG gas or solar panels connected to a heat pump. Wastewater will be via a septic tank which is normal for these secluded farmhouses.
