Villa with stunning views – San Marzano Oliveto
Property Ref: HIP094
Located in the UNESCO world heritage zone and in a secluded area of San Marzano Oliveto this well built 1960’s villa set in one of the most beautiful area surrounded by vineyards and with commanding 270 degrees views towards San Marzano, Nizza Monferrato and Canelli which towns are all within very easy reach.
From this quiet area it is easy to walk to elevated village of San Marzano Oliveto with its cosy local café / wine bar and rich history dating well back to medieval times. From the panoramic position near the small town square and the Roman church, some 300 metres above sea level, the snow-capped mountains provides a stunning backdrop to an endless number of vineyards and what was once an important area for the cultivation of olives even though the olives have largely been replaced with numerous apple orchards. A group of local growers have even formed a consortium to promote this local produce.
The property itself is set behind automatic gates at the end of a small part communal partly private asphalt road with no further properties and therefore placed in a peaceful and very private area. Large parts of the property are also fenced in. The land associated with the property consist of app. 2,905 sq.mt.
The area near the entrance was initially created to accommodate agricultural equipment and is therefore laid out as a concrete courtyard which gives direct access to the large basement areas consisting of two large garages with adjacent storage and technical rooms. This basement is at garden level on two sides and therefore enjoys daylight.
A flight of stairs leads from the basement up to the ground floor which is located at the road level leading to the house and where the main entrance is located. This ground floor consists of a large kitchen located next to a very large living / dining room. These two rooms have access to a shared and good-sized balcony overlooking the vineyards and with San Marzano and Nizza Monferrato in the distance. Further the ground floor includes 2 larger than normal bedrooms, a bathroom and a storage cupboard.
On the first floor, the owner has created two good sized bedrooms, a central living area and a modern bathroom. These rooms all have slanting ceilings and windows.
The entire house is structurally sound, with double glazing, insulation, a good well-maintained roof but needs modernisation. We have contacts with architects / geometra’s who would be able to help with creating a more exciting and functional layout of the house.
The house is connected to communal electricity and water and is heated via natural gas (GPL). Drainage is as always with these farmhouses via a septic tank. Road access is asphalt / concrete and is partly communal and partly private.
