Umbrian Hamlet near San Giustino

In a very quiet and panoramic location on the green hills of Umbria is this renovated country home with a yoga centre plus ruins to be restored. This large property (505 sqm), has been carefully restored and renovated and retains the typical style, features and characteristics and is currently divided into two wings with a total of 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. Renovation, if you wanted, of the ruins would allow the creation of further guest accommodation. The whole stands in around 4.0 ha of land, covered mostly with trees plus a flat clearing which would be very suitable if you wanted to keep horses.

The main farmhouse, boasting a substantial surface area of 505 square meters (5,434 square feet), captivates with its historical significance and offers a total of eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It is divided into two distinct sections, interconnected on the raised ground floor while maintaining complete independence and exclusive access for each section. This architectural marvel originates from the expansion of a Langobardic observation tower, dating back to the 7th century, which still bears visible traces of its ancient origins. Initially constructed as a defence structure, the fortification was later transformed by local monks into a refuge for pilgrims traversing the nearby Bocca Trabaria pass, an important route.

The farmhouse stands in excellent condition, thanks to meticulous restoration work that has diligently preserved its original features. Notably, the older wing on the western side exudes a timeless charm, with imposing stone walls that once served a defensive purpose, wooden ceiling beams, and a cellar boasting a vaulted stone ceiling, now repurposed as a tranquil yoga and meditation room.

Shared by both wings, the common areas encompass a generous space of 80 square meters (861 square feet) and include a ground-floor living room, serving as the entrance and hallway for both sections. Additionally, a yoga room has been ingeniously crafted in the basement of the tower, complemented by a bathroom with independent outdoor access to serve yoga enthusiasts. A technical room, accessible from the rear of the building, further enhances the convenience and functionality of the property.

The eastern portion of the farmhouse, which carries the hallmarks of its ancient tower, spans 215 square meters (2,313 square feet) and features five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Upon entering the shared entrance on the raised ground floor, a small hallway leads to a staircase ascending to the second floor. Here, a central living room with a cosy fireplace unfolds, leading to a master bedroom with a private bathroom and a charming guest bedroom. Ascending further, the staircase guides you to the kitchen, located directly above the living room, which connects seamlessly to a bathroom, a bedroom, and a second bedroom with a private bathroom and a walk-in closet. A small staircase nestled in the bedroom’s entrance hall ascends to the tower’s uppermost level, revealing a spacious panoramic bedroom with an attached bathroom and a loft area.

Conversely, the western wing, encompassing 210 square meters (2,260 square feet), awaits its potential as it currently stands unused. This section, rebuilt in more recent times, already boasts essential systems and most of the finishes, albeit requiring some final touches. The raised ground floor acts as the main level, effortlessly connected to the communal hall. Here, a generous living room welcomes you (with an exterior entrance via a staircase), alongside a cosy reading room, an inviting eat-in kitchen with a dining area, and a convenient service bathroom. Ascending the staircase in the reading room leads to both the lower and upper floors. The descent reveals a central hall, branching out to a spacious living room and a bedroom, both featuring garden access, as well as a bathroom. Journeying upstairs, the staircase grants access to two additional bedrooms, one of which enjoys the luxury of a private bathroom.

Complementing the farmhouse, the property includes three dilapidated buildings, concealed by overgrown vegetation yet still retaining their distinctive character. These ruins present an enticing opportunity for restoration, rekindling the life of the ancient hamlet. The first ruin, a country house situated just behind the main building, awaits its revival, lacking only its roofing. The second ruin, a small stone house positioned upstream from the farmhouse, stands precariously but holds the potential for transformation. Adjacent to it, the third ruin, an agricultural outbuilding, has sadly collapsed, leaving only two walls intact.

Expanding across approximately 4.0 hectares (9.9 acres), the property is predominantly enveloped by flourishing woodland, ensuring tranquillity and unparalleled privacy. To the north, beyond the two ruins, lies a level clearing, ideal for those with equestrian interests. Slightly below the main building, the owners have cultivated a charming garden, cultivating an assortment of herbs and vegetables.

This remarkable Umbria property for sale seamlessly blends historical allure, meticulous preservation, and boundless potential. Immerse yourself in the captivating landscape of the Tiber Valley and embrace the unique lifestyle that awaits within this extraordinary property.
