Prestigious Period Villa For Sale In The Langhe Area
Estate of great historical prestige surrounded by hills in the province of Cuneo
Luxurious 18th-century estate in the area between Roero and the Langhe hills
In the province of Cuneo, in the renowned Roero area, there is this prestigious historical villa for sale, bordering the Langhe's extraordinary hills.
A land of choice for the greatest Italian wines, also appreciated for its exceptional Alba truffle, the area between Roero and Langhe is one of the most fascinating in Piedmont, with a rich, well-rooted food and wine culture behind it.
Strategically positioned only 30 km from Turin, this villa stands on the central body of an ancient building dating back to the first half of the 1700s, used at the time as a hunting lodge by the Rambaudi Counts. To this first portion, from the typical baroque style structure of Filippo Juvarra, a rear part was added in the 1960s, giving the house its enchanting current appearance.
This three-storey, 820-sqm estate also features a characteristic rectangular tower of about 50 sqm, surrounded by a splendid panoramic terrace overlooking the rolling hills of the Langhe.
Internally, the ground floor houses an elegant entrance to the frescoed living room, a kitchen, a dining room with an original 18th-century fireplace and a wooden spiral staircase leading to the upper level, as well as a study with a bookcase. The sleeping area has four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, which still retain the authentic doors of the time. The upper floor houses a bedroom currently used as a study, with a bathroom. The basement floor houses a games room, a big laundry and ironing area with a bathroom, a convenient pantry room, and a big covered garage for four cars.
All around, a delightful four-hectare park with an English lawn boasts majestic old trees, an orchard area with an automated greenhouse and a forestal part. In the garden, equipped with two entrances, there is also a splendid swimming pool made of reinforced concrete, ideal for regenerating in the warmer seasons, complete with a dressing room with two bathrooms and a shower. For tireless lovers of outdoor activities, there is a tennis court with synthetic grass.
To flank this prestigious main house we find an old farmhouse of about 180 sqm, originally from 1920 and recently renovated, characterized by an external veranda with a wood-burning oven.
On the ground floor, the entrance opens onto the living area with a kitchen and a lounge with a fireplace. Upstairs there is a big open-space living room with a bathroom, as well as a bedroom with its own bathroom.
This property is completed by numerous technical rooms, including two warehouses, a workshop, a shelter for agricultural vehicles and a woodshed, as well as exclusive state-of-the-art comforts, including a modern solar panel system and a well for watering the property's grounds.
