Country home in Umbria for sale
Nice hillside location with wide countryside views and easily accessible via the road network and just a short drive from Tuscany.
This country home is thought to date back to 1516 based on a Christogram found on a piece architrave recovered during the process of restoration. The building has been restored using exclusively recovered and recycled original materials, roofs included, and modern insulation techniques have been applied to reduce energy waste and grant optimal heating during winter (energy class A1). The ground floor’s paving is ventilated and all the windows (and French windows) are equipped with safety glass and mosquito nets. The building is equipped with volumetric and perimeter alarm system.
The country house (198 sqm – 2,130 sqft) is laid out on three floors:
– Ground floor: entrance hall, living room (with sofa bed), kitchen, dining room, bathroom with laundry, technical room, bathroom and winter garden;
– First floor: three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a studio with a gallery;
– Second floor: loft above the bedrooms.
The farmhouse has 1.5 hectares of fenced land accessed via an automatic wrought iron gate. Approximately 1,500 sqm of land is planted with garden while the steepest sections are covered in lavender, rosemary, cistus, gaura, roses, Perovskia and other decorative plants. Watered by a drip irrigation system on the slopes and static irrigators on the garden.
The garden is also embellished by three-centuries-old olive trees and eight younger trees (planted in the 1980s and 1990s).
It is also possible to build a pool on the owned land. In the event one decides to buy the house with the pool already built, the price of the property is EUR 890.000,00
It is also possible to extend the main building for further 90 sqm and buy a portion of the farmhouse next to the building (80 sqm up to 180 sqm) in good condition with its own land (approx. 600 sqm).
