Fixer upper 19th-century farmhouse and barn with 1.3 hectares (3.2 acres) of land in Umbria, close to a small town. Lots of potential, up to 7 bedrooms.

Umbria Renovation Property

This fixer-upper 19th-century farmhouse, nestled under 2 km from a quaint town in the Umbrian countryside, offers an exciting renovation project. Accompanied by a barn and a rural outbuilding, the property requires a full restoration to transform it into a habitable space. Its 1.3 hectares of flat, terraced land are perfectly poised for developing a stunning garden, boasting picturesque valley views.

The nearby town, a convenient hub, provides essential amenities like two grocery shops, two restaurants, two bars, and a post office. Additional facilities like supermarkets, banks, a railway station, and various shops are a mere 10-minute drive away. Additionally, notable towns in both Tuscany and Umbria, such as Città di Castello, Umbertide, Cortona, and Castiglion Fiorentino, are easily accessible by car.

The main farmhouse, with a floor area of 305 sqm (3,282 sqft), retains its robust 19th-century structure but needs a comprehensive renovation, especially in its finishes. Notably, the farmhouse still features its original stone walls, wooden beams, and terracotta floors. Spread over three levels, the interior offers potential for up to 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, keeping in mind it retains its historical division of stables and cellars on the ground floor and farmer’s living quarters on the first floor.

Adding to the property’s charm and potential is a spacious 87 sqm (936 sqft) barn, ideal for conversion into an attractive guesthouse, alongside an agricultural warehouse of 113 sqm (1,216 sqft) suitable for storing vehicles and equipment.

The 1.3 hectares (3.2 acres) of land encircling the farmhouse, predominantly flat and terraced, presents a blank canvas for creating a serene garden space, perfect for enjoying the Umbrian summers. This property is a unique opportunity for those passionate about restoration and creating a bespoke countryside home.
