The boiler room is also situated on the ground floor. On the first floor a large landing with a balcony leads onto a bedroom with space to put in an en-suite or alternatively a walk-in wardrobe. Also on this floor is a bathroom, double bedroom with a storage room and a second double bedroom which opens on to a covered balcony (an altana).

For sale with the property is a separate stone building which consists of: entrance on the ground floor by way of a few stone steps into a kitchen/living room with a wood burning stove that heats the whole building.

There is an out building which is used for storage and has all the fittings to put in water, electricity and heating. A tiny covered building houses the washing machine and the door has been created with the old door from the confession box taken from the private chapel which is also situated on the land. The chapel which was built around 1947 and was restored and consecrated by the parish of Tiglio in 2005. In addition to acres of broad fields, perfect for cultivation, there are more than 30 mature fruit trees, a well tended vineyard of 101 Syrah vines, and chestnut, hazelnut and walnut trees, wild porcini mushrooms in season, and its own abundant pure mountain spring water source, certified for drinking, as well as for irrigation. The irrigation tank has been restored and is now used as a swimming pool, 1.50m deep and maintains the same depth all over as it doesn’t have a deep end or a shallow end.
