This generously proportioned townhouse situated in the meandering mews of the old town offers some 170 sqm living space. Over the centuries “Ventimiglia Alta” with its many ancient churches and palaces, romantic gardens and squares has maintained its medieval charm. A ten minutes walk away is the sandy beach “Le Calandre” and soon an elevator will connect the old town with the new yachting harbor (due to open summer 2020).
The current owners lovingly renovated this house with much attention to detail as recently as 2016. Some of the genuinely old floors originate from Ventimiglia Cathedral and the antique parquet flooring in the reception room was sourced in an Apenine monastery. All bathrooms and the kitchen feature hand made tiles from Sicily and Naples and the brass fittings were made to measure. Throughout the renovation, a well-known interior designer from Milan added his expertise to the overall project.
Focal point of the house is an impressive reception room with beautiful vaulted ceilings. Two bedrooms with en suite bathroom lie to the left and benefit from a balcony connecting to a small garden. One further bedroom with en suite bathroom, ante-room and a guest loo are situated to the right. The kitchen and rustic dining room with open fireplace are located at the long side of the reception room. A staircase connects the kitchen with the 8 sqm roof terrace overlooking the roofs of the old town.
The converted former ground floor cellar with vaulted ceiling accommodates a 24 qm guest studio apartment with open kitchen and shower room. The house is fitted with central heating (communal gas) and internet.
The layout of this town house lends itself for perfect use as a B&B for which all required paperwork is in place. The sea and the town center are conveniently close to the house and in comfortable walking distance.
Situated half way between Italy and France, this area is known for its mild and sheltered climate, even during the cooler months of the year.
