This charming country house occupies an attractive location on a sunny south facing hillside with stunning views over the picturesque village of Apricale. The Medieval village is only a short stroll away and the perfect backdrop where to enjoy your morning coffee or evening aperitif in on one of the bars surrounding the piazza. A number of restaurants serve excellent Ligurian cuisine and the local food shop provides everything for your daily needs. Larger supermarkets can be found along the road connecting with the coast. Ventimiglia and Bordighera are a 20 minutes drive away and the lively town of Sanremo is a 40 minutes drive down the road. The nearest airport is Nice and can be reached along the motorway within the hour.
The house offers some 77 qm living space split over two floor levels and has a number of storage rooms dotted around the house. Thanks to the location on a gently sloping hillside, each floor level has direct access to the garden and the terraces. In order to maximize the use of space, there is no internal staircase. Instead, the bedrooms are externally connected with the living area.
On the ground floor are the comfortable living room with open fireplace, a well equipped country kitchen and a dining room. A bedroom with en suite follows at one end of the upper floor bathroom and two further bedrooms and a shower room on the opposite side.
The spacious terraces located at the front and side of the house offer a number of romantic sitting areas where to enjoy the stunning views over a relaxing glass of local wine.
The house was originally built in the 1960-ies and lovingly renovated and modernised in 2007 by the current owners who paid a lot of attention to detail. As part of the renovation the roof, all sanitary installations, electric wiring and heating system as well as all floorings were replaced. The original windows and doors very much reflect the character of the house and were completely renovated. The house is fitted with oil fired central heating and has internet access.
The house is surrounded by 1,566qm grounds, featuring Mediterranean plants and surrounded by a typically Ligurian natural stonewall. Parking is available along the house just below the grounds from where a few steps lead up to the house entrance.
