Charming Langhe stone loft-style renovation project near Rocchetta Palafea 

Property Ref: HIP152


TBC    5 rooms   SE



This old farm building – originally for producing and storing wine – is built almost entirely in Langhe stone. Due to its original purpose the property is a bit different from the traditional farmhouses, but rest assured it is full of character and charm.


This property is located between outskirts of Cassinasco and Rochetta Palafea which – in our opinion – is one of the most desirable areas as you will have lots of peace and quiet without being isolated.

It is an ideal location for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and simply enjoy the calmness of nature – while staying close to the popular villages of Nizza Monferrato and Canelli where you will find weekly markets as well as all the shops, cafés and restaurants you will need.


The property needs total renovation, but structurally it is a good building which will be relatively straight forward to set up to your requirements – and for a reasonable budget.


The current building


The property is laid out over two floors with no internally dividing walls and a simple flight of stairs connecting the two floors. Essentially the ground floor and the first floor are just two large rooms. The ground floor has the typical Piemontese vaulted ceilings while the first floor has visible roofbeams.


A potential project


While you as the new owner will have complete freedom to design the interiors to your requirements and taste you will have the possibility to create a large kitchen / dining / living room, a bathroom and a storage area on the ground floor. You will have direct access to a nice private terrace with views over the surrounding landscape.


On the first floor it would be possible to create 2 or 3 double bedrooms with modern ensuite bathrooms as well as some spare space for an office or cosy TV/games room. It would be possible to have high ceilings with exposed wooden roof beams throughout the entire first floor. From all these bedrooms you would have views over the surrounding hazelnut orchards.


Included in the price is a large piece of land which is currently planted with hazelnuts.  The size is still to be confirmed.  The land around the building itself is relatively flat giving you the option to create a nice garden and a parking area.


The property located on an asphalted cul de sac which means that you have no traffic and a very high degree of privacy. The house is connected to communal electricity and water. Future drainage will as always with these farmhouses be via a septic tank.


We have contacts to reliable and honest geometra’s and builders who would be happy to discuss your personal ideas and requirements for your dream home.
