This freestanding natural stone house situated at an impressive 650 m above sea level, enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the year. The panoramic views are breath taking and reach as far as the sea on clear weather days. Thanks to its peaceful location some 450 m away from the village center of Ciabaudo, the house allows for plenty of privacy. The nearest shopping facilities, restaurants, a bank, post office and petrol station can be found in Badalucco, some 10 km down the road and a selection of supermarkets line the road to the nearest coastal resort is Arma di Taggia (20 km approx.).
The lively town Sanremo with its Marina, markets and historical town center can be conveniently reached along a main road from Taggia in roughly 30 minutes. The international airport Nice offers worldwide connections and is a 90 minutes drive along the motorway.
The house was built in 2015 replacing an old Rustico and features contemporary living comfort throughout. The approx. 42 qm living space (excl. brick work) are cleverly laid out over a ground floor with eat-in kitchen and shower room and one upper floor level with two bedrooms.
All windows are made of wood, double-glazed and fitted with shutters. The built in kitchen is equipped with modern appliances; a utility room in the outdoor area accommodates the washing machine. A ‘Spartherm’ contemporary wood fired stove located on the ground floor provides heating for the entire house thanks to two air funnels allowing warm air to flow to the upper floor bedrooms. There are two additional high quality electric radiators and an energy efficient electric boiler to provide hot water.
The house is surrounded by 3,120 qm terraced grounds offering plenty of sitting areas to soak up the peaceful atmosphere under the shelter of mature trees. A spacious front terrace is the perfect place where to enjoy sunshine and stunning views. A small wooden house (3 x 2.50 m) offers storage space for garden furniture and tools.
A network of hiking routes starts right outside the house and leads all the way to the Maritime Alps and the Oxentina River – a perfect spot to take a dip in crystal clear water on a hot summer day.
The house lies some 80 m back from the nearest road; parking is available on the road. A relatively steep little access road connects with the house and is tarmacked up to the final 40 m. This final stretch of dirt track is only accessible for small four wheel drive vehicles.
This is a beautiful house in plain nature for those in pursuit of a quieter life style yet fit enough to walk up and down the steep path leading up to the house.
