Building complex, former House of the Fascist Party, built in the 30s and located in the Municipality of Vinzaglio, in the Province of Novara, near the border between Piedmont and Lombardy Regions. The asset, unused for years and in average maintenance conditions, will be redeveloped through a multi-year State leasing licence, without being sold.
The building complex is composed of two structures: a main one laid out onto two floors (plus basement) and a second one, on a single floor, separate from the main one. The property also includes a courtyard area of about 800 sqm, fully fenced with low wall and metal mesh, encumbered with an easement of passage in favour of third parties. The main structure is made up of two housing units of 2.5 and 3.5 compartments respectively, plus a storage unit of about 138 sqm. The building is made with a solid brick masonry load-bearing structure, beam and brick ceilings and a roof with a wooden framework and roof tiles; the windows are in common wood while the floors are made of grit and cement tiles. The secondary structure, located in the open courtyard and used for storage, is made of masonry, with a roof in fibre cement sheets, and has no windows.
