Property description

This property, a town house for sale surrounded by olive groves and woodland, is situated at 450 m above sea level in the hamlet of Castello. During medieval times it was the seat of the hunting and forestry administration for the Dukes of Genova. During the 1960-ies the local farmers started to desert Castello and the hamlet was left abandoned until an entrepreneur from Berlin discovered the derelict rusticos in the 1970-ies and started renovating them together with three other families, very much respecting the traditional building traditions. The village now counts 12 houses. The houses located at the upper end of the hamlet are mainly used as holiday houses whilst the houses at the lower end are homes to five Italian families.

The property in question, a town house for sale, is located at the upper end and measures 80 qm living space split over three levels and surrounded by 250 qm of garden grounds. The kitchen and one dining or guest room are located on the ground floor.  The front terrace with sitting area invites to relax and enjoy the beautiful views over the Maritime Alps and the Merula valley. A few steps up from the kitchen follows a hall with storage room and a shower room/toilet. Also on this floor level lies the spacious living room with balcony. This room too offers stunning views over the beautiful surroundings. A staircase in the living room connects with the bedroom located right above. This bedroom has direct access to the second balcony and roof terrace with unobstructed views over the Monte Ceresa and Pizzo d’Evigno summit.

The town house for sale is fitted with insulated wooden windows and shutters; the heating and warm water system can be fed alternatively by solar panels, pellet fired stove or gas. There is also an open fireplace in the living room. The town house for sale will be sold inclusive of all furniture.

Castello is a village part of Stellanello, the next bigger village in the Merula Valley some 5 km down the road. It has a small food shop covering the daily needs, a post office and a pharmacy. Larger supermarkets and the coast with Marina di Andora are a 30 minute drive away from Castello. The neighbouring Cote d’Azur with Menton, Monte Carlo and Airport Nice are some 120 km away. A well-constructed mountain road conveniently connects with the coast. Shortly before reaching the church Santa Maria del Bosco, a 300 m dirt track only used by the residents leads directly to Castello. Parking facilities are available next to the small chapel at the bottom of the hamlet from where a few steps lead up to the house.

Castello’s peaceful location away from the busy tourist destinations is ideal for all those in pursuit of nature and a quiet location.
