The charming village Ville San Pietro is situated a 30 minute drive away from the lively coastal resorts and the regional capital Imperia, some 450 m above sea level. It is surrounded by olive groves, gardens and meadows as well as woodland, waiting to be explored on the many hiking and cycling routes meandering through the surroundings. Foot paths lead past old olive oil mills and cross historic stone bridges along the way. The natural pools along the river invite for a refreshing swim in the summer months. During the season, a small bar in Ville San Petri sells everything to cover your daily needs and the nearest shops and restaurants are in Borgomaro, some 7 km down the road.
The country estate occupies a quiet and sunny location on the village outskirts and offers a main house called “Casa Maninin”, a rustico named “Casa Lucia” and a small tower with two rooms and a spacious roof terrace as well as a 185 qm garden. A communal courtyard connects the houses with the garden. Beautiful panoramic views over rolling hills and the valley can be enjoyed from the terraces and the balconies.
“Casa Maninin” dates back to the late 19th century and the overall layout was altered to its current look in the early 1930-ies. In the 1980-ies it was completely overhauled and the current owners carried out further modernisation work (i.e. new aluminium windows) in 2011.
“Casa Maninin” offers 148 qm generously designed living space. The entrance hall opens into a long corridor connecting with the three bedrooms and the shower room. From here, a staircase leads up to the first floor with spacious living area, eat-in kitchen, utility room/toilet as well as one more bedroom or study. French windows lead from the living area and the kitchen out on the south-east facing balcony which connects with the roof terrace (approx. 17 qm) on the tower. The living room and bedroom each have a balcony facing north/west.
“Casa Maninin” is fitted with gas central heating; there is also a pellet fired stove in the living room and a wood fired stove in the kitchen.
“Casa Lucia” is a typically Ligurian natural stone house of solid brick work. It offers some 43 qm living space and another two 9 qm storage rooms on the lower ground floor. On the ground floor are a living room and the kitchen; the bedrooms and bathroom are located on the first floor. The two floor levels are connected by a spiral staircase. Due to the location on a gently sloping hillside, both floors have direct access to the outside and benefit from a private courtyard each, offering charming sitting areas. The smaller 7 qm roof terrace on the rustico can be accessed via a ladder. “Casa Lucia” was converted in 1985; heating is provided by a pellet fired stove and an electric boiler provides hot water.
A roof covered patio located between “Casa Maninin” and “Casa Lucia” invites on hot summer days to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings and view on the neighbouring chapel. The tower offers potential for extension; the two rooms (approx. 12 qm each) situated above each other, could be turned into a guest room or studio.
“Casa Maninin” and “Casa Lucia” have private access to the road which facilitates separate use if used as a holiday home. Free Public parking is available outside the grounds or along the road.
Included in the sale is a 508 qm woodland a few hundred meters away from the house and another 23 qm cellar room inside “Casa Maninin”.
The commission amounts to 3,66 % of the sale price inclusive VAT and is payable by the buyer.
