Occupying a wonderfully sunny spot with breathtaking, unobstructed views over the Maritime Alps, this property is situated on the outskirts of the small village Torria, a 15 minutes drive into the hinterland of Imperia-Oneglia. The village offers a small infrastructure with three restaurants, one bar and a food shop. The large shopping center of Pontedassio is only 15 minutes away and nearby Imperia has of course a large selection of excellent shops to offer.
The natural stone house is detached and is nicely framed by a 500 qm terraced garden on either side. Over the past two years, the house has been lovingly renovated and divided into two independent units, which could also be connected. The larger of the two measures 140 qm in living space split over the ground and first floor. Two staircases, one being external and one internal, connect the two floor levels. A 50 qm living area forms the focal point of the ground floor. The very high ceilings made it possible to create an 18 qm gallery space, perfect for use as a bedroom to sleep 2-3 people. A beautifully tiled stove keeps the room comfortably warm and a shower room decorated with attractive tiling, rounds up this floor level. The bedroom is located at 2 steps up from the living area.
On the first floor is a 55 qm fully fitted eat-in kitchen and a 30 qm south facing terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a guest bathroom with outside access. Both floor levels open out to the surrounding garden, planted with olive trees, oleander, citrus fruit trees, fragrant Mediterranean herbs and vine.
On the lower ground floor is a small apartment measuring 60 qm, split into eat-in kitchen, 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. This unit also has direct access into the garden. A pleasant 40 qm cellar room with vaulted ceilings lies at street level and would be perfect for use as garage, workshop or studio.
The house is fitted with central heating fed by communal gas, fired stoves on each floor level, insulated wooden windows with shutters, satellite TV, telephone and internet.
Optionally a productive olive grove can be purchased
The 10,170 qm olive grove is situated in a perfectly sheltered and sunny location below Torria and laid out in wide terraces. The 450 olive trees of the Taggiasca variety produce some of the best organic olive oils in Italy. A database of long established customers can be made available. Two solid farm tracks connect well with the house. A metal shed (15 qm), a wooden shed (18) as well as all agricultural tools required to manage the land, will be included in the sale. The land also has a building index to allow for creating a new building with 60 qm living space and 20 qm usage space.
