Historic watermill with 5 bedrooms – Gordona near Gavi

Property Ref: HIP123

Price:  €195.000 – NEEDS MODERNISATION

TBA    5 bedrooms  400 sq.mt.



This ancient property located close to Gavi, can be traced back to the 16th century and is listed among the historical assets of Piemonte.


Over the last couple of centuries, the property has been a working watermill and while the water wheel, and the indoor machinery such as e.g., hopper and grinder should be functional, the mill has however not been used for half a decade.


The particular atmosphere of such a historic place has however not been lost and the property is full of wonderful features which the current owner has enhanced through some charming “shabby chic” style furnishing.  This is a place ideal for any type of business related to tourism or for those interested in historical building and equipment. 


The property is laid out over 2 floors with the millhouse and tool shop in the basement.


The first consists of good sized eat-in kitchen, a large living room with well-kept ornamental ceiling, a large bedroom, a storage room, bathroom, a dining room with high ceilings and a large bread/pizza oven as well as panoramic windows overlooking the surrounding meadows. The ground floor further benefits from a large terrace with space for outdoor dining.


On the second floor one finds four really good-sized bedrooms with large windows and hence lots of light and views.  There is also a bathroom on this floor.


At basement level one finds all the internal mechanics of the mill which the owner tells us should all be in working condition. 


The property itself is app. 400 sq.mt. and is set on a very large piece of land which can either be fully or partly included in the sale of the property. The surrounding land consists of streams, meadows and forest.


While the property – in principle – is ready to move into you will most likely want to do some upgrades and improvements over time.
