Magical castle property in Italy located in the Piedmont province of Alessandria.
Castle with tower, outbuildings and Barbera and Grignolino vineyards. Altogether the property has 23 bedrooms. Would benefit from a little work but this is a magical property at a very good price.
In 2014 the vineyard landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The castle property is located on the edge of a small village, which can be reached on foot, in an exclusive and panoramic position, and it enjoys excellent privacy.
The property has two entrances, one bottom entrance going towards the castle and reaching the cellars, and another one on the rear.
Torino-Caselle airport is the nearest airport, only one hour’s drive away.
The property is made up of a castle and secondary buildings.
The castle dates back to the 19th century, measures 2471.2 gross square metres and is laid out on five levels, composed as follows.
Lower ground floor: old cellars with brick vaults. From this level you can reach the main entrance on the ground floor through an internal staircase.
Ground floor: the whole floor is used as living area, which looks out directly onto the garden. This floor is divided into two areas, one area with pantry, kitchen, hallway, kitchen, storage room, kitchen, two entrance rooms, storage room, half bath, kitchen and dining room, and another area with aligned rooms (sitting room, dining room, washbasin, entrance hall, dining room, sitting room and study). Loggia.
First floor: ten bedrooms, six bathrooms and a wonderful, original and intact library. Five balconies.
Second floor: the last floor is not used for residential use but rather as storage room; originally the staff lived here.
Third floor: attic room.
The castle property has three staircases: a service staircase, which begins in the cellar and goes up to the top of the tower, a main staircase and a secondary staircase.
A wing of the castle is currently occupied by the housekeepers. In the past the castle used to be divided into two parts and inhabited by two different families.
The three secondary buildings, which have a total surface area of 859.85 square metres, could be used as apartments or as service rooms for the castle. They have their own access.
Rustico on two levels, composed as follows.
Ground floor: three garages, agricultural machinery shed, woodshed, kitchen and dining room.
First floor: three bedrooms, bathroom and barn.
House A is laid out on three levels, composed as follows.

Although the castle property is large, it is not overly big and it can be occupied in its entirety by a family. It is in good condition, however it would benefit from some renovation works. The castle property features cellars with brick vaults, vaulted ceilings, coffered ceilings, original floorings, terracotta floorings, wooden floorings and a crenellated tower.
The property is surrounded by perfectly maintained gardens and 9 hectares (or 22.23 acres) of land, of which 3.5 ha of vineyard and 4 ha of park.
Cultivar: Barbera and Grignolino.
The old cellars, on the lower ground floor of the castle, can be used as wine cellars and the property could be converted into a luxury boutique hotel, combining it with the production of wine.
Given its size and the three staircases, the castle can be inhabited by only one family or be divided into living units.
