This country house is situated on a sheltered south-west facing gently sloping hillside in the rolling hills of Dolceacqua, enjoying sweeping views across the valley and down to the sea. The former Rustico has been extensively renovated over the last few years and offers 70 qm living and usage space split over two floor levels, connected by an external staircase. A beautiful ground floor room with vaulted ceiling and revealed brickwork is the backdrop to the eat-in kitchen. Adjacent and benefitting from a separate entrance is a workshop, which could easily be converted into a bedroom. Also on this floor level are a toilet and a 5 qm storage room. The upper floor level offers another two bedrooms and a shower room.
A number of pretty spots on the outside terrace where to soak up the sun or sit in the cooling shade invite to enjoy the view over the beautiful surroundings. The outdoor fireplace and BBQ is perfect for entertaining friends and family. A number of mobile electric and gas fired heaters keep the house pleasantly warm and an electric boiler provides running hot water. The wooden windows are double glazed and fitted with wooden shutters.
The surrounding 4,907 qm grounds are gently terraced and planted with beautiful mature olive trees. The Taggiasca olive is known among gourmets around the world for producing one of the best olive oils.
The country house is situated a 40 minutes drive up from Sanremo, 20 minutes away from Bordighera and 50 minutes away from the Côte d’Azur with Monaco and international airport Nice.
