Villa In Umbria – Città di Castello, Perugia

This property would make you a lovely home or holiday getaway in Umbria with the added bonus of the guest annexe. Restored and with plenty of space in a quiet location but just a short drive to Città di Castello, a popular city that boasts excellent facilities and amenities.
Services are all available in the nearby village (4km; 10’) and Città di Castello (9km; 15’) and other cities and towns in Umbria and Tuscany such as Umbertide, Cortona, Gubbio, Perugia, Montepulciano, Siena, Florence… can be reached in less than two hours.
Located in a quiet panoramic position, roughly 500 metres above sea level.

The villa has a surface area of 328 sqm – 3,529 sqft with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 2 levels and the lower level is pretty much a spacious open space, where each room has its own exit onto the garden. From the portico, you can enter the villa through the main entrance, connected in turn leading to a dining area with a veranda, to the kitchen and to a side room. A door on the left side of the entrance leads into the storage room with a bathroom. From the outside, a door leads into a laundry.
On the upper floor, there is a large living/music room with exposed beams on the ceiling and a gallery overlooking the lower floor. From here you can then pass into the sleeping area made up of three bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms.
The building was fully restored and updated keeping to the latest anti-seismic criteria, combining original elements (such as stone walls, wooden terraces, walnut flooring, terrazzo flooring and fireplaces) with modern solutions such as steel beams and glass balustrades. During the renovation, it was also decided to install huge windows (all reinforced and with double glazing) on the eastern, southern and western sides of the house so that light can enter the house all day long while also offering a stunning panoramic view over the surrounding countryside.

The guest annexe has a surface area of 100 sqm – 1,076 sqft with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and is not far from the villa and is the result of the expansion of the 13th-century chapel (which is nowadays the main bedroom). The building comprises a generous living/dining area with a kitchen, bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a mezzanine to be used as a bedroom with a private bathroom. The building has been rebuilt by following the original footprint and is almost finished. The building complies with current anti-seismic measures and has been micropiled to ensure the best stability. Energy-efficient heating in the guesthouse is underfloor and supported by a wood-burning stove.

The house is surrounded by 2.5 hectares of land with a well maintained park with a rose garden and a 100-tree olive grove producing up to 50 litres of olive oil per year. The remaining surface area (roughly 1.0 hectare) is covered in mixed woodland.
A short distance from the villa is the 14 × 4.5 m swimming pool which offers a beautiful contrast between the black lining of the pool and the light-coloured stone of the sunbathing area.
The property is partially fenced and the main access is by an automated gate that opens onto a gravelled road leading directly to the house. Other secondary gates allow you to enter the property on foot from several points along the perimeter.
