This natural stone house is situated in Rezzo, a charming small Ligurian village with a population of some 400 people in the Valle della Giara. The village has a Trattoria and two food shops with adjacent bar yet the nearest larger supermarkets and a selection of excellent restaurants are just 7 km away in Pieve di Teco. A well constructed road connects in 30 minutes with the sandy beaches of Alassio, Albenga or Imperia. The Giara River offers a number of spots where to enjoy a refreshing dip in its gushing crystal clear water. The nearest natural pool with waterfall is only a 20 minutes walk away.
The historic building is situated at the upper village end, enjoying stunning views over the valley and the surrounding rolling hills. The house was completely overhauled and fitted with all contemporary comfort some 10 years ago. Traditional elements such as revealed brickwork, wooden beams and local slate were consciously kept as attractive design features.
The house offers 85 qm net living space split over two floor levels. The main entrance at ground floor level opens into the spacious living area, a stunning natural stone archway on the left gives way to the kitchen, a shower room is situated to the right. An open staircase connects with the galleried upper floor and adjacent bedroom with garden access and a small storage room.
A 519 qm garden surrounds the house on three sides. The garden is gently terraced and offers a number of charming sitting areas among the many rose bushes, rosemary and fruit trees; a small wooden shed offers further storage space. There are two parking spaces at the rear end of the garden, facing the road. The house is heated with gas central heating and a wood fired oven adds to the overall comfort in the living area.
Included in the sale is an outbuilding, located in the historic village center some 80 m away from the house. On the ground floor the building offers a beautifully renovated 25 qm studio flat. Thanks to a ceiling height of 4.70 m it would be possible to create a galleried bedroom. The building is currently registered as ‘magazine’ but can be changed into additional living space subject to planning permission. On the lower ground floor are a further 30 qm storage space, accessible through an external door. A small garden which is not part of the property, is being used for outdoor sitting.
For those in need of additional space, there is the option to purchase a Rustico standing next to the main house. The Rustico is in need of complete renovation and could be connected to the main house. Click here for further information on the Rustico: https://www.terra-italia.com/en/properties/rezzo-im-794/
