This spacious (~301 m² / 3240 ft²) 400 year old home is nestled in the centre of Carezzano, a historic village in the hills of Tortona, in the Piedmont region of north-west Italy. The home has been carefully restored, maintaining and highlighting original features while including the best of contemporary craftsmanship. Features include wood paneled ceilings, wooden iron studded entrance door and gates, exposed stone walls, wooden beams, a large fireplace in the sitting room, a bedroom fireplace and a stone staircase. External doors and windows were substituted with insulated double-glazing replacements in 2016. The original hall door was kept by adding a double glazed door to maximize insulation while preserving the original character. This home is ready to move into, no building works required! ENTRANCE & COURTYARD French doors lead onto the beautifully cobbled courtyard, with its flowering shrubs, vines, roses and jasmine hedges. The courtyard, with a well, is reminiscent of Italian courtyards dreamt of through the ages. There is also an original wood-fired bread oven, in what is now the fitted laundry and utility room. The house façade is simply beautiful to see from the courtyard, having been lovingly restored to allow the stonework to breathe once more in the glorious Italian sunshine. Car parking is in the shared outer courtyard, in front of the characterful wooden gates. GROUND FLOOR The ground floor includes an elegant sitting room, dining room and dine-in kitchen. The dining room and the sitting room, with its open fireplace, original inset wooden bookshelves and polished wood panelled ceiling, are presently furnished with antiques (some of which could be available). Gas fired radiator heating is also available throughout the home. FIRST FLOOR A central study (or social space) leads to three bedrooms. A particularly endearing feature of this floor is "The Bridge", which connects the sleeping area to its bathroom and dressing room. The Bridge has handmade wooden and glass sliding doors and 4 skylights. There is an almost nautical feel, although the views are of the delightful private inner courtyard, the village rooftops, sunsets and church steeple. Great for growing flowers and plants! 3 double bedrooms 1. The spacious master bedroom has a modern glass-enclosed fireplace, which adds to its comfort, along with original terracotta floor, exposed stone wall and high ceiling. 2. The second bedroom has a beautiful beamed ceiling, visible stone walls and views of the Alps. 3. The third bedroom has also kept its original terracotta floor and a window overlooking the courtyard. SECOND FLOOR A large spacious loft has Norwegian hardwood floors, exposed beams and Velux skylights to let the sunlight stream in. Includes a bathroom. The area Carezzano is surrounded by beautifully manicured vineyards and rolling hills, with views across the Po Valley all the way to the Alps; it is part of 30 villages known as the “Colli Tortonesi”.
Selvapiana, part of the municipality of Fabbrica Curone, located in the upper valley of the Curone stream, just 20 minutes drive from Tortona, and less than an hour's drive from Milan and the Ligurian Riviera, surrounded by nature, ideal for who wants to escape from the summer heat and is looking for tranquility. The hamlet or locality of Selvapiana rises to 770 meters above sea level. The area is excellent for those who enjoy walking in the woods, looking for mushrooms or truffles and why not, try the typical products of the valley that range from peaches from Volpedo to salame del Giarolo, as well as numerous local events and festivals dedicated to musical and artistic events. The solution is divided into multiple buildings, all different and characteristic, that arise not far from each other, for which one could think of various uses, such as: solutions to make income, holiday homes or even first homes. Furthermore, by changing the intended use, we highlight the possibility of creating a widespread hotel, an innovative concept of hotel hospitality that provides for the distribution of rooms and services on several buildings in a village, to guarantee a unique experience of notable tourist attraction.
