This sheltered property enjoys a quiet and sunny location on a south facing hill and sweeping views over the valley, the majestic Maritime Alps and the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. The idyllic setting is shared with a few country houses and villas dotted around the neighbourhood. The nearest infra structure of the romantic mountain village Perinaldo is just 10 minutes away and the historic town of Dolceacqua is a 15 minutes drive down the road.
The villa offers some 250 qm (300 qm gross) highly finished living space as well as a 30 qm loggia on the upper floor, various spacious terraces surrounding the house and a 12 x 4 m infinity pool. The room layout offers the opportunity to separate the two floor levels thus creating two independent units. Such amendment would open up the house for two families or holiday rentals.
On the ground floor level are the main entrance, one living/dining room with open fireplace, a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a guest toilet and a utility room, also suited for use as a small fourth bedroom. An interior staircase leads into the lower ground floor with two further bedrooms, one bathroom, a utility room with guest toilet and a 90 qm open plan living room with kitchen, dining area and open fireplace. The living space benefits from a ceiling height of up to 3 m and the large windows and glass doors open out onto the terrace and garden.
The surrounding garden measures 2,835 qm and is level with the ground. A fully automated watering system waters the lawn and a special ‘drop-by-drop’ watering system keeps the flowerbeds adequately moist.
The villa was newly built in 2007, then overhauled and extended by the current owners in 2010 when nearly all windows and glass doors were replaced, new bathrooms and the kitchen fitted to the lower ground floor, two heating stoves alternating as open fireplaces were installed and a number of built in cupboards, wooden shutters and insect protection blinds were fitted. The roof is newly insulated and a gas central heating system is fed by an on site tank; a permission to fit solar panels to the roof is already in place.
Included in the sale is another 13,485 qm unoccupied piece of land, located elsewhere and purely used to justify the building index.
The property is 40 minutes away from Sanremo, 20 minutes from Bordighera and some 50 minutes away from the Côte d’Azur with Monaco and the international airport Nice. The Sanremo Golf Course is conveniently close and the nearest skiing resort is Limone/Piemont. The nearest Marinas are in Bordighera, Ventimiglia (under construction), Sanremo or Menton on the French side of the border. Dolceacqua offers a very good infra-structure with a selection of restaurants, shopping, bank, medical services as well as a primary and secondary school. A small mountain village connects with the villa in some 6 km.
The commission amounts to 3,66 % of the sale price inclusive VAT and is payable by the buyer.
