This country estate occupies a majestic location between Camporosso and Dolceacqua, some 10 km away from Ventimiglia and the beaches of the Riviera. A well-constructed private road connects with the village centre in less than 10 minutes. The south-easterly orientation allows for unobstructed views over the sea, the Maritime Alps and plenty of sunshine all year round. A few privately owned country houses are dotted around the neighbourhood and nestling among the olive groves are a number of established wineries and manufacturers of agricultural goods. The Ligurian hiking route “Alta Via” is the perfect gateway into the Ligurian mountains.
The approx. 4.6 ha grounds are all part of one piece of land, which is rare to find in Liguria. The largest part of the grounds are planted with a 400 olive trees of the Taggiasca kind; 1,000 qm are allocated to a DOC certified vineyard with Rossese di Dolceacqua and Vermentino grapes; there is also a lavender filed with some 300 plants, a fruit orchard, wide terraces for use as vegetable gardens and woodland with Mediterranean Macchia. The grounds are agriculturally worked on and very well looked after. The many natural stone terraces have been renovated and newly built where necessary and the core piece of land is fenced in. A drip watering system provides each tree with 8 l p/h and communal water mains as well as a on site well in conjunction with a cistern collecting rainwater, ensure generous water supplies.
A two-storey house offering 64 qm living and usage space was newly built in 2016. On the ground floor is a flat with living room/kitchen, a small room with bathroom and one bedroom with bathroom. The living room opens out on a 30 qm roof covered terrace. On the lower ground floor and accessible by an exterior staircase are a multi-functional room, a storage room as well as a shower room. The adjacent 15 qm terrace is roof covered, providing pleasant shade in the summer months.
The house was built in line with the latest energy requirements; it is fully insulated and the roof is enforced with 15 cm insulation; 6 photovoltaic panes produce 1.5 kW/h in electricity and are connected with a thermos fireplace, which can alternate between pellet or wood firing. Air conditioning is also available.
Rustico/Potential for Expansion
A 30 qm natural stone building standing on the grounds offers potential for renovation and extension. It is connected by the private road running across the entire property. This road leads to a second and larger rustico, beautifully located on a plateau among the olive grove. The building measures 140 qm, enabling an extension to up to 200 qm living space. The building index of the entire property offers potential to build a further 100 qm living and 145 usage space; plans are already in place.
This fascinating property is a perfect retreat for those in pursuit of a rural lifestyle without wanting to miss out on the lively attractions the coast has to offer. It is equally ideal for use as an agricultural enterprise, B&B or sole private use.
