Small building in need of restoration

The property benefits from a very large underground space, (550 sq.m) underneath the main building, adapted into a garage with 25 parking spaces, plus a cellar, ski storeroom, laundry and utility areas totalling 46 sq.m
The “wirtschaftshaus” in need of total restoration

State and finishing
Chalet in Alta Badia underwent substantial restoration and upgrading work, which completely maintained the traditional features of a South Tyrolean farmhouse or ‘Maso Chiuso.’
The accommodation has been carefully finished, with traditional wooden floors and roofs typical to the area.
The ‘Arte Povera’ style furniture, the leather furnishings, the carpets, the drapes and curtains and the lighting have all been carefully chosen to provide maximum warmth throughout.
The property includes approximately 1 hectare of land.
Use and potential uses
Chalet in Val Badia is a property unique among its kind; it is very difficult to find a farm or ‘Maso Chiuso’ for sale in this area. Current planning permission for this property allows it to be used as tourist accommodation or as a home. It is also interesting to note that the land is not excluded from the possibility of extension for residential purposes, for which the necessary permits and authorisation may be requested if required.
