This small manor house is situated right in Perinaldo’s historic centre and used to be the residence of the village founder, back in 1650. Thanks to its raised location, all living rooms as well as the 5 terraces benefit from stunning panoramic views over the sea to the south and the Maritime Alps to the north. The manor house was extensively renovated in 2000 when a contemporary attic floor was also added. The generously proportioned living area of 300 sqm is split over two floor levels and the overall finish is to a very high standard. The historic part of the manor reflects the unique charm of a period long gone by. Genuine features such as wooden doors, wood paneling and murals have been lovingly restored wherever possible. Local artists have added new artwork and marble and slate floorings underline the elegant ambience. The traditional “Carrugi”, romantic small mews meandering through the centre, lead to the manor’s entrance. It is however possible to access the house by car. The grand stairwell, adorned with beautiful vaulted ceilings and slate stairs, leads to the first floor and opens into the entrance hall with adjacent music room and open fireplace. To one side are the contemporary live-in kitchen, the library and one guest bathroom. To the opposite side follows a stunning hall, featuring frescos and 8 m high ceilings as well as access to a private balcony inside the neighbouring baroque chapel. Large French windows at the far end of the hall open out onto a terrace and give beautiful views over the Maritime Alps. Also to the right are the guest wing with two bedrooms and one bathroom. On the same floor level and accessible from the entrance hall is the stunning 70 qm south facing terrace with views over the Mediterranean sea. A flight of stairs leads from the music room to the spacious and light flooded upper floor level. Here, the generously proportioned living area and the master bedroom fitted with a hydro massage bathtub and one bathroom further enhance the overall spacious character. Large windows and terraces give stunning views over the surroundings. On the lower ground floor are another 70 sqm cellar room which could be perfectly used as wine cellar or a spa. All technical equipment is of the highest standard and the house is fitted with gas central heating, fed by communal gas. The mountain village Perinaldo occupies a majestic and sunny spot on a hilltop, some 572 m above sea level, surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and woodland. A variety of hiking routes and mountain roads offer plenty of opportunities to explore this beautiful area. The beaches of Bordighera are less than a 20 minutes drive away and Sanremo, Menton and Monte Carlo are only a 50 minutes drive down the road. Perinaldo offers a good infra structure with a bakery, a mini supermarket and a village bar. A number of restaurants and the pharmacy remain open for business throughout the year.
Miscellaneous: The private access to the baroque chapel is noted in the land registry and can be regarded as a unique privilege. The manor house offers the potential for use as a B&B but also provides the perfect ambience for a gallery or seminar location. The two floor levels can easily be separated in order to create a self-contained apartment on the first floor. Direct access from the staircase and circuit points for creating a kitchen are already in existence.
