An exceptional house in terms of volume, brightness, comfort and historical charm, carefully restored and easily divisible, if necessary, into several units for multi-family use or accommodation facility. It is located in the center of Sostegno, nestled in the hills of the nebbiolo wine-growing area (Bramaterra – Gattinara), about thirty kilometers from Lakes Orta and Maggiore, about an hour from Milan and Turin, Malpensa Airport, and a stone’s throw from the Alagna- Monte Rosa Ski area. The building traces, on its three floors, the typical 18th-century Valsesian arched lobbiato, so much so that the building-though not subject to special constraints-is mentioned and illustrated in Vera Comoli Mandracci’s book, ” Le antiche case Valsesiane.”
Careful restoration respecting its historical uniqueness was accompanied by a great deal of attention to the issues of living today, so as to allow independence of energy resources and considerable savings:
-Photovoltaic panels for generating and selling electricity and solar thermal panels for hot water;
-Thermal coat on the north facade;
– On the south facade, the long porch (lobbiato), enclosed by aluminum and double-glazed windows and doors in addition to the thick walls act as insulation, summer as well as winter;
– All windows and doors are oak, except those in the lobbiato on the 1st floor; all are double-glazed;
-A large-capacity cistern for rainwater, and a reserve tank The house is fully equipped with a heating system, remotely piloted via the Internet, complemented by high-end inserts (STUV) with ventilation; in addition, each room has a fireplace, or one or more flues for wood or pellet stoves.
The facade with a completely southern exposure faces the garden.
The property is spread over several levels:
-The raised ground-floor lobbiato, with beautiful brick vaults, provides access to the staircase leading to the upper floor and directly to an independent unit that can be used both as reception rooms and offices.
-The main dwelling is developed entirely on the first floor; we believe that a mere list of the rooms cannot do credit to them in terms of their spaciousness, brightness, finishes and comfort. Every detail has been taken care of, with particular attention to the recovery of historical components (vaulted ceilings, terracotta tiles, beautiful wooden floors, arches on columns and twin arches), and incorporating technology with good taste and details of absolute value and worth.
The large square footage of both the living part and the outbuildings allows multiple possibilities for completely independent use, even for several households.
-A large attic on the second floor, bright and of considerable proportions, embellished with open twin arches, with beautiful views of the hills is available for the creation of additional living space.
-Two large independent double cellars with exposed brick vaults keep a perfect temperature for use all year round.
-A 2-car garage in the courtyard, a second in the garden, a third garage for motorcycles/bikes, several parking spaces in the courtyard allow total independence of parking.
-It can be accessed directly from the garden, with private driveway access, or through the courtyard, via an old wooden gateway that provides tranquility and privacy.
-Other appurtenant rooms serve as storage, workshop, woodshed.
The large, fully fenced garden makes the property even more attractive. Accompanying it, another two-story detached building (barn) equipped on the PT with a kitchen and summer living room makes the use of the garden pleasant and comfortable.
An almost unique property, very pleasant to live in!
