This country house, completely overhauled in 2018 occupies a quiet spot surrounded by beautiful nature on a sheltered south-west facing hillside in the rolling hills of Apricale. Thanks to its unique location the house enjoys stunning views over the surrounding hills and the Monte Toraggio towering at a majestic 1,971 m above the Val Nervia. The 6,914 qm almost even grounds offering spacious terraces and romantic sitting areas are a slice of paradise for every outdoor enthusiast. The overall 30 olive trees produce a delicious olive oil and the fruit tree orchard is a pure delight. The erect swimming pool is the perfect place where to cool down on a hot summer day.
The house measures 120qm living space split over two floor levels. Thanks to its position on a sloping hill, both floor levels give direct access to the grounds. The 85 qm contemporary living space is located on the upper floor level with kitchen, spacious living-dining room, master bedroom, two smaller interconnected bedrooms, a shower room and separate toilet.
On the lower floor level are 4 cellar rooms – one of which has been converted into a bedroom. The remaining rooms offer potential to be converted into another bathroom, atelier or studio. Additional storage space is provided by the cellar rooms and the attic.
The house is fitted with insulated windows and thermal façade insulation. A wood fired stove in the living area and under floor heating keep the house pleasantly warm. A combination of private well and a number of cisterns ensure fresh running water supplies.
On the grounds stands a ruin of an old rustico with the option to rebuild and extend its existing construction (30 qm).
A private road connects to the house with only the final 100 m left as dirt track. The nearest villages Apricale and Isolabona are some 4 km resp. a 15 minute car journey away.
Apricale is a romantic mountain village in quiet setting, surrounded by olive groves and woodland. The village invites with a number of restaurants serving excellent Ligurian cuisine, a few bars and has a food shop, a pharmacy and a post office. Throughout the year, Apricale hosts a number of cultural events, culminating in the theatre festival in August. Despite the rural setting, the lively coastal resorts Bordighera and Ventimiglia are only 25 minutes down the road. Sanremo and the French towns of Menton, Nice and Monte Carlos can be reached within the hour.
