In an ancient village high above the Taverone valley, we have a collection of three newly converted houses set on a hillside with stupendous views, especially from the pool area. In the heart of the village, which boasts a shop, bar and excellent restaurant - all within 3 minutes' walk.
Built in the 1600's, this quaint old village house has been restored to retain its original features combined with all modern facilities in a most striking style.
Il Fienile a spacious family house, has the convenience of being in this beautiful old village with all its amenities, and having views out across the hills. You can sit out quietly on the extensive private terrace or in the beautiful shady courtyard at the front. To the rear, there is a large (10mx5m) pool shared with the other houses.
After entering through the stone-flagged courtyard with its ancient pizza oven, the cosy downstairs sitting room with open fireplace leads through to two bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower and a convenient 'ripostiglio' under the stairs for storage.
Upstairs, from the stylish living room with a new terracotta-tiled floor, french windows lead out onto the large terrace with its gazebo - perfect for al fresco dining. The main bedroom has an en suite luxury bathroom area in gorgeous blue tiles with a corner spa bath from which you gaze out across the valley. There are dramatic soaring beamed ceilings with stone walls throughout the upstairs.
The new kitchen area has 4 metres of worktop with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge. There is plumbing downstairs ready for a washing machine.
The house has the enviable position of being on a south facing hillside in a small farming community with a shop, bar and restaurant a short stroll from the piazza. No cars pass by the house, only the cows!
