Fantastic renovation project with amazing views – Calosso

Property Ref:  HIP150

Price €350,000

0.2 ha    8 rooms   SE



Located on a south facing hilltop in the commune of Calosso this large U -shaped farmhouse represents a great opportunity to create either a large impressive private home or alternatively several self-catering flats or perhaps an amazing B & B.


Calosso is a highly desirable area in the Monferrato – and within the UNESCO heritage zone. From here you have just a few minutes’ drive to Nizza Monferrato, Canelli and Santo Stefano Belbo with their many shops, cafés and restaurants.


The current building


The property is U-shaped and built in a mix of traditional bricks and Langhe stone and contains several old features such as” Crotins” (old hand-carved caves), very large old wooden beams, fireplaces and of course a cantina.


The project


The building needs total renovation but 1) the building drawings are totally up to date, 2) the old stables and haylofts have already been registered as “habitable” and 3) a building permission which includes the ability to create an amazing swimming pool has already been approved by the commune.


As you can imagine the current owner has incurred significant cost (more than Euro 25,000) and used an endless amount of time (more than 1 year) to get all the paperwork in order – so that the status is now such that a renovation / newbuild can start immediately.


While you as the new owner will have complete freedom to design the interiors to your requirements and taste the current owner’s vision making use of the associated building permit approval which includes rebuilding a ground floor residence for themselves, consisting of 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen / living area with all the necessary bathrooms, storage and technical rooms. In addition to this the idea was to build 4 – 6 double bedrooms and 2 suites for guest purposes on the first floor. Without significant delay and cost it would be possible to make changes to the building permit so that the future project fit to your requirements.


The property is accessed via an asphalt road. A central courtyard connects the three buildings and provide ample parking for several cars behind a metal gate. The property is connected to communal water and electricity.


This is a very exciting project in one of the best locations we have seen in a long time. Please contact us for further information and an appointment to have a closer look at this great property.
