L Shaped Farmhouse – Calamandrana
Property Ref: HIP058
Price: €150,000 – TOTAL RENOVATION
This old farmhouse built in a mix of Langhe stone and bricks is located on a small quiet road between Calamandrana and Canelli. Sitting on and edge in the hillside this property has stunning views towards Canelli and the glowing sunsets.
With its L shape this property represents an interesting project as one could create exceptionally large rooms on the first floor, all with lots of light, high ceilings and exposed roof beams. On the ground floor one could retain the vaulted ceilings so typical of Piemonte while incorporating part or the entire ground floor cantina / wine cellar in the future project. The possibilities here are truly endless.
In this home the front door leads to a good-sized living room with windows on two sides and with really nice views of the surrounding landscape and the courtyard. Also, on the ground floor one finds the old kitchen with an adjacent workshop as well as a good sized storage room. On the side of the building are two fair sized garages. Of special interest is also the large cantina / wine cellar situated on the ground floor and running along the entire length of the house.
On the first floor only app. 50% of the floor space is currently used for habitation while the remaining has been untouched for decades hence retaining the large old roof beams. The part of this first floor currently used for habitation includes 3 large and well lit bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings plus a bathroom. The potential for combining the current and the untouched areas, and perhaps even include the hayloft over the garages, is really interesting as it could create areas for either bedrooms, living areas or perhaps even a enormous kitchen-living space with panoramic windows.
The combination of a ground floor rich in traditional features and a century old cantina plus a completely redone first floor with high ceilings and an exposed roof construction is really exciting. This property holds the potential of something totally unique.
The current owner has recently renovated the roof (2014) and strengthened the construction with steel rods which both reduce the cost of the future renovation significantly.
The property includes just over 1 HA of land. One part is directly adjacent to the house with a large piece of relatively flat land, ideal for a swimming pool with terraces, and another piece slightly under the house which has an old overgrown hazelnut grove. In addition, and across the small road, another piece of land is left as forest with a few fruit trees at the very top of the hill.
The property is connected to communal water and electricity. As with most farmhouses, wastewater is via septic tank. There is currently no heating in the property.
