Novi Ligure rises in the so-called "lower Piedmont", in the south-eastern area of â€‹â€‹the upper Monferrato.
Immersed in the rolling hills of Novi and Gavi stands Villa Cabella, a majestic and refined residence, overlooking a beautiful landscape, surrounded by a spectacular park, inside nothing is left to chance, its internal and external architecture creates an atmosphere pleasant and relaxing.
The property has a covered area of â€‹â€‹approximately 1400sqm. surrounded by a green area and park of about 12 hectares.
A wide driveway leads to this splendid estate where we are welcomed by the main villa which has a simple but very elegant Genoese architecture that overlooks a suggestive internal courtyard where some buildings with typical "red bricks" find their right location ". The villa currently has a manor area that has large rooms and a vintage flavor, while we find another area that needs renovation.
The buildings that overlook the courtyard certainly need maintenance but have a charm and ample opportunity to be reborn in the splendor they deserve.
Externally it offers large areas for outdoor dining where there are ovens, barbecues for a pleasant outdoor life and large flowered terraces.
The property recalls its origins as a famous farm that was once considered an "autonomous village" with its past prestige as opposed to its refinement today.
It is located between Milan, Genoa and Turin, so that it can be easily reached in a few kilometers. It is possible to go on horseback riding, bicycle rides and enjoy a moment of relaxation in a wellness center within walking distance.
