When the Declaration of Independence was being signed this luxury villa was probably already getting it’s second coat of paint! Built in the 1700s it still retains original features in pristine condition.
Walk into the main entrance from the street and I promise you will look up and say ‘Wow!’ It’s simply stunning. The arched brickwork is stupendous. The inner courtyard will still have you saying ‘wow’. You’ll imagine yourself here, entertaining guests in private parties or just enjoying the peace and tranquility it offers in abundance.
The far end of the courtyard has two beautiful (yes, I did say beautiful) garages for your pride and joy classic cars, motorcycles, or use them as ‘taverna’ a place to enjoy wine tasting or even dining. There’s an office and a bathroom on the courtyard level.
Going into the door for main villa leads you to the beautiful staircase. On the first level are a total of 11 rooms. The main living room is stunning. The artwork on the ceiling is original but looks as if it was painted last week. And paintings are stunning – not the usual dark, depressing work of the Catholic age but beautiful scenes of maidens, towers and landscapes. It really is breathtaking. I promise you will hardly notice the beautiful oak flooring beneath your feet.
Moving around this level will introduce you to 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 kitchens and another smaller living room. Every room is beautiful. The condition is exceptional. Our information is that the current owner lavished whatever needed to be spent to preserve it and get it into this shape.
The floor above is the former servant’s quarters. There are 8 rooms but we need to confirm if they can be used as ‘legal’ living space. The rooms probably can be restored and used, but not for rental purposes.
Below the villa are large wine cellars.
There’s a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment attached and included in the €750,000. The property can be bought without it with a reduction of €120,000. Currently, it is rented for 3 years for €400/month. It is currently used as a medical centre. At the end of the contract it would be your choice. Photos coming. The floor space is 300 sqm.
There’s a piece of woodlands close to the property.
The town of Cassine has a very famous son. We’ll come to that.. The town was establish in the 10th century. There were local wars when the Marquis of the Monferrato gave it to Alessandria. Alessandria took it in 1231 and flattened it. It was later rebuilt, occupied by Facino in 1404, sieged in 1451 by the Marquis of the Monferrato, then Charles V took it in 1556 and then the French in 1644. In 1707 it was annexed by the Savoy family. In 2023 you could buy a house here!
In 1938 Luigi Tenco was born there. Luigi is the most famous and most loved singer-songwriter in Italy. Italy’s Bob Dylan! He wrote for cinema in particular. His story is fascinating. Possibly being the son of one of the Micca sons, Turin’s highest of society. He died young, at the age of 29, but had already established himself as Italy’s best and is still revered today, even by young Italians.
The area around the town is also incredible. This is a big and important wine area so most of the hills are covered in vineyards. The landscape and small towns around are breathtaking. The famous town of Acqui Terme is just 15 mins away and Nizza Monferrato 20 minutes. The coast is also in easy reach – less than an hour.
This is rare and the price is better than anything you will find and is negotiable. Viewing is essential. It has to be seen – and it will sell quickly.
