A very special jewel in the heart of the sunny hills of southern Piedmont (Italy)
The rich history of this special estate begins more than 500 years ago with its builder, the personal doctor of the Prince of Turin. Medico Mina only considered the best for his choice of home: based on positive energy fields, he used building materials of excellent quality and chose an optimal position from the climatic point of view and with easy access. After its founding the estate became a Benedictine convent and large farm, thanks to its rich water supply.
Historical evidence of this eventful past includes a tunnel for escaping to the castle of nearby Cigliè, three sundials and an oven for bread.
In 2002 to 2017 the estate was thoroughly restored during its private ownership. The refurbishment has been carried out by highly skilled specialist contractors (for the heating, plumbing and electrical services). Insulation, photovoltaic system and underfloor heating, all of excellent quality, guarantee minimum energy costs all year round.
The estate gives the opportunity for a stay in an historic setting with modern comfort. The brick vaulted ceilings have been carefully brought to light, showing the special skill of their builders. Many of the walls have hand-painted decorations adding to the house's charm.
The modern, practical furniture and the sizeable rooms provide comfortable up-to-date living space. The interior colour schemes and attractive details of craftsmanship are admired by visitors and residents alike.
If the need arises, the property is independent of the gas and electricity supply: the woods on the property provide enough fuel, thanks to the modern wood burner, to heat the water and underfloor heating system. The meadows to the east and south-east are ideal for cattle raising and theplanting of vines or hazelnut trees. And the fields are scrupulously cared for by the neighbouring farmers and cultivated without psticides.
Due to the estate’s central location and the development of facilities in the outlying area (commercial centre, world heritage recognition, motorway access, etc), there is already a good income rate, with the expectation of future increase; the estate is furthermore predicted to hold and increment its value.
The property is ideal both as a holiday home and as a profitable and reliable investment; it could also be equipped as an equestrian centre, a conference centre, a private retreat, etc.
Its calculated potential income is around 200,000 Euro per year. It would be possible to purchase the existing business, which exploits circa 80%, with marketing plan, staff and homepage.
