Renovated hilltop farmhouse – Mombercelli
Property Ref: HIP084
€230,000 – FINISHED
This renovated semidetached farmhouse sits at the very top of one of the hills circling Mombercelli and the charming village of Rocchetta Tanaro – in the middle of the UNESCO world heritage site! From here the views are simply spectacular and it is easy to create a wonderful swimming pool with fantastic views, large terraces and great BBQ areas.
The surrounding villages give you easy access to weekly markets, cafes, restaurants, and several small convenience shops.
The property is ready to move into, structurally sound and completely renovated in 2010. The house benefits from a new roof, new windows in hardwood with PVC shutters matching the colours of the windows, double glazing, new electricity and plumbing as well as new floors, central heating on the first floor and with all the preparations for central heating also on the ground floor.
The ground floor is laid out in the style of a classic Piemontese farmhouse with a central staircase in the original Lucerna stone with an interconnected kitchen (not fitted) and living room on the right-hand side and a further living room with access to a good-sized bathroom on the left-hand side. This latter room could potentially be set up as an en-suite bedroom. At the back of the house one finds the old stable which has been converted to a wonderful cantina with vaulted ceilings and visible old bricks.
On the first floor the property consists of 3 very large bedrooms, each of them with large windows facing the rolling vineyards and hence leaving all the rooms feeling light and spacious. One of the bedrooms even has a small classic balcony. The bathroom, which includes a nice whirlpool bathtub, is big enough to be divided into two separate bathrooms if necessary. From this large bathroom there is access to a large terrace. The old hayloft on the first floor has been cleverly converted into an extraordinarily large living room with visible roof beams and 4 very large windows. Initially the owners were considering splitting the house in two which is why a small kitchen has been installed in this fantastic first floor room. However, if one chooses to fit out the kitchen (as initially planned) the small kitchen on the first floor could be removed leaving this amazing first floor space with its woodburning stove and endless views as the central living room area of the house.
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 some floor tiles) while making sure that the comfort of modern living is achieved.
The house further benefits from a garage and a good-sized storage room and approximately 10,000 sq.mt. of land, some of which is planted with vines and some with hazelnuts. It is possible to buy additional vineyards. The property is accessed via a small communal asphalt road. Communal water and power whilst gas (for heating) is based on GPL and a relatively new gas boiler.
