Impressive Villa With Stunning View
Piedmont: Imposing country house on the edge of a charming village with magnificent views and swimming pool.
This impressive villa (550 m²) with a pool and guesthouse is truly perfectly located, within walking distance of shops, a bar, pharmacy, post office, sports field, and even a castle in the charming village of Morsasco. At the same time, it offers a breathtaking panoramic view and privacy thanks to the enclosed 1.5-hectare property and the remote-controlled entrance gate.
A talented architect, deeply rooted in her love for her homeland and the use of natural materials traditionally employed by local farmers, has transformed this early 20th-century country house into an impressive estate.
The stately villa is a true work of art, with the central theme being the connection between the former home of the village doctor and the spaces formerly used for agricultural purposes. New life has been breathed into the old stone walls, which harmoniously blend with recently restored sections and a pool that fits perfectly in this setting. Stone, wood, and iron – all traditional building materials – have been used here with a modern perspective.
On the ground floor, you’ll find a cozy tavern with a wood-fired pizza oven and a marble countertop, enclosed sunroom, wine cellar, huge storage room, laundry room, and two covered terraces. The dining area and kitchen have vaulted ceilings with exposed bricks and a fireplace.
On the floor above, accessible via the entrance hall, there’s an open living room with double height and exposed beams, inviting mezzanine currently used as TV room/library, a living room with a woodstove, a master bedroom, a single room, a bathroom with both a shower and a bathtub, and a guest suite with a private bathroom, bedroom, and a living room with a fireplace. There’s also a spacious garage.
The elegant staircase leads you to the second floor with a double room, a single room, a bathroom, and a living room.
The old guardhouse is currently being used as a yoga studio but can be converted into a holiday home for friends and family.
The property covers 1.5 hectares and includes a solar heated swimming pool with panoramic view, an irrigated garden, a pond, and a vegetable garden. The upper half of the property is entirely fenced.
Numerous ecological enhancements have been recently implemented to render the house mostly off-grid.
There are two solar panel systems, one off-grid with batteries and one connected to the electrical grid.
Heat pumps in the house and yoga studio.
Air conditioning run by solar power
The pool is heated with solar collectors.
Eight tanks collect 20,000 liters of rainwater from the roof, eliminating the need for city water for the pool.
The roof was replaced in 2018 with 12 cm of foam insulation added.
There’s a water softener with a triple filter.
New security doors, and 75% of the windows have been recently replaced.
New wood-burning stove.
Located in the lush hills of the Alto Monferrato, on the edge of a medieval village with a castle. The historic thermal baths of Acqui Terme are nearby, and the azure waters of the Ligurian Riviera are less than an hour’s drive away.
