Our client is selling this monumental winery built in 1885 in Northern Italy. The building needs a total renovation. In cooperation with the local architect Marco Ghielmetti, with the property and through a direct line with the Municipality, we are looking for investors. The complex offers different possibilities of development (housing, hotel, spa, agriturismo / holiday farm, and also new villas within the plot of 34.000 m2). After being impressed by the pragmatic beauty of this building we prepared a feasibility study.
The formerly called Masseria del Sole (Sunny Farmhouse), so called because of its privileged orientation towards South, is located in Northern Italy, few minutes from Switzerland, one hour from Milan and its three airports, 20 minutes from the famous Lake Como. The building was realized for the vinification of very good red and white grapes which were cultivated in the surrounding hill, still belonging to the same property. Today the nearby Swiss valleys are still producing wine in the same environmental conditions, whilst in this side of Italy this activity is still waiting to be revalued.
The complex consists of two buildings, the Masseria, the monumental winery, and the Annex, which was formerly dedicated to stables and hayloft. The first one is 6,000 cubic meters on four levels. The secondary unit has a consistency of about 1,600 cubic meters on two levels, located to the east of the main unit. There is a possibility to build an additional volume of minimum 1,900 cubic meters.
Many are the possibilities of development. We studied two typologies of housing (low budget and luxury) and a possibility to realize an Hotel with Spa. But this building offers many more possibilities such as student housing (for the nearby Università della Svizzera Italiana), elderly residence, Agriturismo (holiday farm) with winery and restaurant.
If you are interested in this development a -free of charge- more complete study can be obtained by contacting us directly. We can offer our professional assistance and our local network for the development of this object (in collaboration with arch. Marco Ghielmetti).
