3 Bed Beautifully Restored Farmhouse, Pool, Olive Grove

This beautifully restored farmhouse is located not far from Lake Trasimeno in the green hills of Umbria. Finely updated and renovated in 2010 by the present owners, this spacious property has a surface area of (290 sqm/3,335 square feet) with 3 bedrooms and beautiful living rooms with classic finishes handmade by local craftsmen to preserve and retain the charm of the property. The 4,800-sqm garden includes a small olive grove (60 trees) and a 14 × 6 m swimming pool with an outbuilding where it would be possible to build a small spa if wanted.
Services are available in the nearby town, just 5 minutes away, which can be easily reached via an unpaved road in excellent condition. The lovely town of Passignano, on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, is about 11km away, and towns and cities such as Umbertide, Perugia, Cortona, Città di Castello, Montepulciano, Assisi, Pienza, Todi… can be quickly and easily reached in an hour or so’s drive.

The original core of the farmhouse dates back to the 14th century and was most likely a watchtower. The building was expanded in the 16th century and became a farmhouse. The last residential addition is dated 1769, and only the turret (tobacco dryer) dates to the second half of the 19th century. The current appearance was given to the farmhouse by the current owners who engaged in a careful renovation completed in 2010 and carried out using only original materials and/or perfect copies handmade by local craftsmen. Fixtures and furniture were also commissioned from local artisans and carefully made following the original style of the farmhouse.

The house has a surface area of 290 sqm – 3,120 sqft with 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and opens on the ground floor with a spacious dining room with an open-plan kitchen, small pantry and bathroom. From this main room, one then passes into a small sitting room connected to the private office space (which could potentially be an additional small bedroom). Beyond the study, with independent access from outside, is a spacious guest bedroom with a small cooking corner and a private bathroom decorated with hand-painted ceramic tiles by Francesco De Maio.
Going up to the second floor (from the internal staircase or directly from the outside) there is a cosy living room with a fireplace that leads on one side to the library and the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. On the opposite side, one enters the turret: on the first floor of which is the bathroom, while up on the second floor is a bedroom with panoramic views.
On the northwest side of the farmhouse is a paved porch, ideal for outdoor dining and breakfasts, which then leads to the old stables which have been converted into a veranda/orangery.

The property is surrounded by a well-maintained 4,800-sqm garden and features a rose garden designed by landscape architect Alberto Margheriti.
The 14 × 6 m swimming pool is located downhill from the farmhouse, in a private and very panoramic location, and has a basement room (20 sqm – 215 sqft) that is currently used as a changing room but, if wanted, could easily become a small sauna and/or spa area.
On the slope below the house, there are also 60 olive trees that produce a small amount of excellent extra-virgin olive oil for personal use.
