Umbria Country Estate – Home or Commercial Use
Set in a lovely location the estate opens up to a superb landscape, in a spectacular panoramic setting on top of a small hill, 200 m above sea level, with the valley and Tiber river below.
The main villa is both beautiful and large with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and is built in classical style with local stone. Access to the main villa is via a gated entrance driveway which is lined with splendid windmill palm trees (Trachycarpus fortunei).
– Basement. Access to the brick tunnel leads from the main villa down steps to the basement which is full of light. Here there is an impressive cantina and a vast area that would be ideal for a gym/wellness area or a home cinema, another room and a bathroom.
– Ground floor. The entrance opens up into a large L shaped room and a sweeping brick archway which leads to a double lounge area with imposing feature fireplace. Cotto Antico floors, double iron-framed windows and French door make a refined aspect. The large dining area has a beamed ceiling and Cotto Antico flooring and, with its wall of windows, is full of light. Access to the spacious kitchen is via the dining room. Cotto Antico flooring, feature beamed fireplace, pizza oven, double oven and abundant tiled worktop space. This floor is completed by a guest bathroom with shower and a single bedroom (or study if desired). There is also a large shelved walk-in linen storage room.
– First floor. Up a flight of Cotto Antico stairs, we get to a hallway leading to five very spacious and light-filled double bedrooms, one with fireplace and four with en-suite bathrooms (2 bathrooms with shower + 1 bathroom with bathtub and overhead shower + 1 bathroom complete with both bathtub and shower and double basin). An independent bathroom serves the fifth bedroom. The flooring is a modern cotto.
A magnificent 150 sqm panoramic portico provides an unusually large space, ideal for many people gathering together, with a view on the garden overall. Near to the kitchen, there is a very large barbecue and pizza oven housed unit.
Next to the villa is a 2-car stone-built garage with a storage room next to it. A structure on two levels to be restored is attached to the garage (possibility of building a further level on top).
Just outside the main gates to the villa, lies the lovely 19th-century classical local stone country house (4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) with shuttered frames, over two levels. The first floor is habitable, whilst the ground floor needs to be restored.
The ground floor is currently used as a large storage area but could be restored, for example, as a double lounge, dining room and kitchen area leaving the first floor for bedrooms only.
Access to the first floor is via external steps to arrive at the lounge with feature fireplace, kitchen, four bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with shower, the other with bathtub and shower).
There is a sizeable piece of land also around this house with the possibility of installing a pool independently, if desired. The country house also has spectacular panoramic views of the countryside.
In front of the country house, there is an additional small independent building on two levels, ideal perhaps for staff accommodation.
A beautiful well maintained and mature 2-hectare garden surrounds the main villa with flowering shrubs, tree and flowers set amongst a backdrop of splendid tall windmill palm trees (Trachycarpus fortunei). The impressive 16 × 8 m rectangular mosaic-tiled swimming pool lies in the centre of the garden just a few steps from the property.
The estate has the foundations for a tennis court already laid out.
The remaining 20 hectares (49.4 acres) of land consist of woodland (14 ha – 34.6 ac) and agricultural/arable land (6 ha – 14.8 ac). The estate’s water consumption is via its private and independent well which provides endless free water.
