This property occupies a quiet and sunny spot some 2.5 km above the medieval town of Dolceacqua. From the terraces, beautiful views across the valley, the surrounding olive groves and the rolling Maritime Alps can be enjoyed. A few country houses are dotted around the neighbourhood; some of which are inhabited all year round and a well-constructed access road connects with the property.
The 3,500 qm grounds are fenced in and laid out in gently sloping terraces, planted with cultivated olive trees, mimosas, fig trees and a fruit orchard.
The house offers some 160 sqm living space and 29 sqm usage space split over two floor levels. An internal staircase connects the two floor levels opening up the option to divide the house into two independent units. On the upper floor are the living area, a kitchen (could be converted into a bedroom), two bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom. French windows open out from the living room and kitchen to the 23 sqm balcony. The ground floor offers a large living area with open plan kitchen, a bedroom, a spacious bathroom and a storage room. A converted 29 sqm storeroom is currently being used as studio/study. On this floor level too, French windows open out from the living room on to a terrace.
The house is of solid quality and was built in the late 1990-ies under the use of high-end materials. It is fitted with insulated windows with shutters and gas central heating. On the upper floor a pellet fired oven adds to the overall comfort during the cooler months of the year.
The house is some 40 minutes away from Sanremo, 20 minutes from Bordighera and the Côte d’Azur with Monaco and the international airport Nice can be reached within 50 minutes. The golf course of Sanremo and the skiing resort Limone/Piemont are conveniently close and the Yachting ports of Bordighera, Ventimiglia (under construction), Sanremo and the French port town of Menton are within easy reach. Dolceacqua offers a functioning infra structure with a number of excellent restaurants, shopping, bank, medical services as well as a primary and secondary school.
