Partly renovated house – Vinchio
Property Ref: HIP0112
Located near the top of a hill just outside the village of Vinchio, and near one of the best wine cooperatives in the area, this partly renovated farmhouse is ready to move into. Yet the property still has significant potential for further renovation and hence the possibility to create a home that fits your requirements.
On the ground floor this property has new kitchen and a cosy living area. In addition, the owners have preinstalled necessary plumbing for a large bathroom and started to create what will be a beautiful double height living room with a mezzanine level. They have done this by partly removing the ceiling of what was originally the stable/garage on the ground floor and the floor of hayloft on the first floor. The result (which is still a work in progress) will eventually be a very large open space ideal for a living room with fireplace on the ground floor and e.g. a “quiet zone” for reading or simply relaxing on the first floor mezzanine level. With the hard, heavy and expensive work already completed this space is just waiting for a creative new owner to add his/her private touch to this exciting space.
Accessed – either from the mezzanine area or via a classic Piemontese staircase with the nice old lucerne stones – the first floor of the property consists of a good regular bathroom and a total of 4 bedrooms of which two are ready for use while the remaining two will require modernisation.
The roof of the building has been replaced. Also all the windows have been replaced and fitted with double glazing. All these improvements and the preinstallations for the works in progress, represents a significant value and will not only simplify further renovation but significantly reduce the final renovation costs.
The house is located at the end of a private gravel road and has a nice view of the village of Vinchio. In addition, the house sits completely immersed in its own 8.000 sq.mt. of land. The work in the vineyard is currently undertaken by the owners with support from a local farmer. I would expect that one could negotiate an agreement with the farmer so that he carries on looking after the vineyards for you too. The grapes planted are 80% Barbera and 20% Cortese.
From the property it is a short drive to Nizza Monferrato where you have all the shops, bars and restaurants you need! The nearby village of Mombercelli (Alto) is a lively little village with a couple of café’s, a small grocer, a pharmacy, a number of small charming shops including a small privately owned bookshop as well as a good old fashioned DIY shop.
The house is serviced by communal water and electricity. Heating is via GPL gas which is stored in an onsite gas tank. Wastewater is connected to the communal sewage. Internet connections can easily be made available.
The property is being sold furnished apart from personal items which will be removed prior to takeover of the property.
