Unique Central Townhouse with Terraces
This unique townhouse located in the middle of Langhe, Piedmont, offers 2 bedrooms, panoramic terraces and cosy living areas.
A contemporary style home within ancient walls creates the perfect blend of tradition and modernity.
The house is located in the very heart of the historic centre of Monforte d’Alba. It measures 280 sqm + 70 sqm of panoramic terraces and it is spread over 4 floors:
Access to the townhouse is via one of the characteristic town’s alleys. Upon entering the house, there is an entrance hall that leads you to the cosy living room.
Here, you’ll immediately notice the brick arches, probably dating back to the Middle Ages, as well as the flooring, made from ancient boards of an old farmhouse in the Alta Langa.
On this floor, there’s the first terrace of the house with spectacular views over the town, the vineyards and the Langhe.
Stepping down to the ground floor you reach the kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom and a lovely closed veranda, where you can sit down and relax, while enjoying the sun coming
in. The veranda is directly connected to a small courtyard, where you could put a dining table for al-fresco dinners and entertaining. This is more than a privilege for a house located right in the historic centre.
The dining room is full of modern details, such as two radiators in the shape of elongated ellipses – very original.
The kitchen was created in the area of the old animal penn with the the worktop is in porphyry and canaletto walnut. On the floor there is a small window overlooking the library downstairs.
If you go further downstairs, you reach the cellar, where you can store your precious collection of Barolo wines. At the moment, it’s arranged as a reading room, with sofas and a big bookcase. This room is connected to another courtyard: on warm sunny days, you can move outside and read your favourite books outdoors.
The second floor can be reached via a wood, iron and stone staircase – one of the most interesting architectural elements in the house.
This floor is where the sleeping area has been arranged with 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. The originality is given by the materials used for the doors: barriques cut and set with iron and glass.
In the master bedroom, 3 windows overlook the valley, with beautiful views over Monforte and the Langhe with its charming vineyards.
Passing through the main bathroom (equipped with a shower with chromotherapy), you can reach the highest terrace with breathtaking views.
The guest bedroom offers a fireplace, as well as other details, specifically the materials used to build it.
This property offers a rare opportunity. It’s hard to find a centrally located house as impressive as this one with 70 sqm of external space (terraces and courtyards).
Being in the centre of town, everything you need is on your doorstep including shops, bars, restaurants and more without the need for a car.
Going shopping will also be an opportunity to meet people, socialise and have a chat with the people of the village.
For major services, you can get to Alba in just 20-25 minutes by car.
From Monforte d’Alba you can also easily get to Turin, Milan, Genoa and reach their international airports in 1.5 hours.
