Happy Tuesday! MASSIVE property to restore in Northern Italy! Amazing listing! SEVENTEEN bedrooms shared between a manor house and a farmhouse, with multiple outbuildings. The rooms still have original, gorgeous frescoes across the ceilings. The property is situated in fifty acres of countryside, close to the medieval town Cairo Montenotte, in the Savona province of Liguria, Italy.
I hope this property finds its way to someone ready to take on the restoration challenges! I’d love to watch the renovation process as the frescoes come back to life, or maybe watch the former vineyard start growing grapes again! What a beautiful and exciting place.
