Beautiful typical and charming Ticino-house with romantic courtyard located in the historic center of Meride, one of the most delightful and characteristic villages of Mendrisiotto.
Meride houses the famous Museo dei Fossili del San Giorgio (museum of fossils) designed by star architect Mario Botta and the entire Serpiano region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Originally built in 1600-700, the building develops in the form of a "C" and has the typical structure of the houses of the time, with the rooms facing the porch and the beautiful loggias.
These covered areas of approx. 51 m2 could be closed with large windows to create large and very spectacular living spaces.
The living area is currently approx. 224 m2 in addition there are approx. 206 m2 of additional rooms, partially convertible spaces for residential use.
The beautiful inner courtyard of approx. 115 m2 is accessed through a large portal facing the small main street of the village and a part of the property (left in the "rustic" state) serves as a practical garage for 1-2 cars.
Currently the property is divided into three apartments for B & B use but could easily be used as a primary home for one or two families.
In the basement (with independent access but also connected to the courtyard) there is also a large room now used as a restaurant/bar with kitchen, nice fireplace and charming, well-tempered wine cellar.
A property with many possibilities of use and great potential.
