This traditional Ligurian townhouse is situated in the historic center of Cantalupo, a district of Imperia some 4 km away from Porto Maurizio and the beaches. Cantalupo is a quiet residential area enjoying beautiful views. The nearest shopping facilities are 1 km away and Imperia offers a perfect infra structure conveniently accessible by bus. The house is situated in the car free center and the nearest parking spaces are some 200 m away. An easily manageable path without ascent connects with the house.
Split over three floor levels the house offers some 410 qm living and usage space and two terraces, measuring 10 and 15 qm respectively. The ground floor bedroom is actually a converted former olive oil mill. The 65 qm room with its typically vaulted ceiling still features the original press and mill stone. The room opens out directly into the mews and connects internally to the main staircase, leading up to the first floor. On the first floor are the 90 qm living area, the eat-in kitchen, two inter-connected bedrooms, two bathrooms and a storage room. This floor level gives access to the 15 qm terrace.
Further up the staircase on the second floor is another 138 qm living area. It opens with an anteroom with access to a 10 qm terrace and a spacious living room with open fireplace. Three steps up is another anteroom leading to the eat-in kitchen, one bedroom and a living room, which connects with another bedroom and a shower room.
On the ground floor and first floor are 117 qm cellar and usage space yet to be renovated or completed. There is the option to create further living space, a workshop or studio to integrate into the overall living area.
The house benefits from beautifully high ceilings, some featuring vaulted ceilings as well as other genuine elements such as slate stairs and stone brickwork. The lower unit is fitted with gas central heating, connected to communal gas.
The house comes with a 1,068 qm garden just below the house, accessible across the mews on a small path. The terraced garden has been left to its original state for a number of years.
Imperia and surroundings have a lot to offer in terms of active leisure and excursions. A network of hiking and mountain bike paths starts right above Cantalupo. The international airport Nice and Genova can be reached in 1.5 hours along the motorway.
