This charming property is nestling in the natural beauty of the hinterland surrounding the coastal resort Imperia and is only 30 minutes away from Riviera’s beaches and the sea. Located on the village fringes of Lucinasco it guarantees peaceful privacy. A few steps away from the house is the landmark church Santo Stefano, the origins of which date back to the year 1281. At the foot of the church lies the pretty pond “Laghetto Lucinasno” – a serene beauty spot and popular place to visit in the summer. The village with its food shop, Trattoria, the post office and town hall is just a 5 minutes walk away from the villa.
The country villa features spacious rooms and attractive high ceilings of up to 3.20 m throughout. Large windowpanes allow for plenty of light to flood the rooms and give beautiful views over the surroundings. Originally this villa used to be a popular restaurant in Lucinasco and was converted by the current owners some 20 years ago. The 250 qm living space are conveniently laid out over one floor level with the house entrance opening into the 60 qm eat-in kitchen with cooking island and separate dining area. Adjacent to the kitchen is the 100 qm living room which has been divided up by a wall made of wood and glass. This wall can be effortlessly removed. A bedroom with walk-in wardrobe (or optional second bedroom) follows on from here. Two further bedrooms/Study, two bathrooms and a guest loo are situated to the other side of the living room.
Thanks to its position on a gently sloping hill, the lower ground floor has a ground level appearance and offers a cellar room as well as roof covered parking for up to six cars.
The house is fitted with gas central heating connected to private garden tank as well as a pellet fired stove in the living room. Internet and satellite TV fittings are in place.
The 1,500 qm garden is a Mediterranean haven of peace and quiet with many sitting areas and terraces to enjoy. A swimming pool (7.50 x 3.40 m) invites for refreshing swims during the summer months.
In case more living space is needed or in order to put the property to commercial use as a small hotel or B&B, an additional floor level providing an extra 250 qm could be added. The necessary planning permission is still in place as are the supporting concrete piles.
This idyllic and quiet setting in beautiful nature with a network of hiking and cycle paths meandering through the surroundings is a perfect location for those in pursuit of a more quiet lifestyle, away from the bustling coast. Connectivity to the nearest airports is good, with Genova and Nice being just a 1.5 hour motorway drive away. The nearest skiing resort Piemont is a 2 hour drive up the road.
