This country house occupies a secluded spot on a hilltop between Camporosso and Dolceacqua. Thanks to the south facing orientation it enjoys plenty of sunshine and stunning views across the valley and the sea shimmering in the distance. Vineyards and olive trees mark the surroundings and a few well known wineries are dotted around the neighbourhood. Just a few meters away, the hiking route “Alta Via” passes by the house. It is the perfect path to explore the beautiful Ligurian hinterland and Maritime Alps.
The nearest shopping facilities and restaurants are located in the coastal resort Ventimiglia (9 km), the romantic village Dolceacqua (10 km) or Camporosso (14 km). The beaches on the Riviera are less than 15 minutes away and the Côte d’Azur and the international airport Nice can be reached in under one hour.
Starting in 2002, renovation work on this former farmhouse lasted until 2008 and in 2012 the current owners once again undertook more renovation work and refurbished the house.
The layout of this 65 qm one storey house is straight forward offering one living room, one bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom all on one floor level. All rooms are light flooded and some of the ceiling heights go up to 4 m. The windows and doors are unconventionally made of cast iron. A wood fired stove and air conditioning system (warm and cold) keep the house pleasantly warm during the cooler months. There is the option to add a gas fired boiler to the heating system as all pipes and connections for radiators are already in place.
A spacious 70 qm terrace paved with natural stone leads out on the 11,488 qm grounds. Various romantic sitting areas nestling among the Mediterranean flowerbeds, invite to sit and enjoy the stunning views. A large section of the garden is planted with cultivated organic vines, 42 olive trees, a fruit orchard and an abundance of scented herbs.
A 250 m private field track for which a 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended, connects with the well-constructed main road.
