The origins of the house are most likely a old tower, its footprint is still clearly visible on the current floor plans. The house was built around it at a later stage, and all was done in local stone. It was then covered in plaster but that can be removed to show off the natural walls should one desire to do so. The house is especially charming because of its shape, not quite the usual rectangular block as well as the arched windows and arcades which are very nice. As the property has long since been abandoned it requires a complete renovation. For any information regarding the job you can get in touch with us directly as we are part of the http://www.renovatinginumbria.com group that can handle the work from A to Z. Though time is running out to make use of the by now well known 110 or super bonus the Italian government offer various possibilities to obtain other very interesting subsidies.
Almost 8.000 sqm of land comes with the house. Right now it is cleaned on a regular basis but not put to any use. It is definitely plenty of space for a garden, pool, parking and then some! Once the renovation of the house is done some good landscaping will easily create the right setting for it.
Though well connected the immediate area is very tranquil. There are plenty of agriturismi and other tourist accommodations littered over the countryside. The nearest village with amenities is only a stone’s throw away, 4km, and offers everything for daily life. The bustling university city of Perugia is 13 km away while the world famous city Assisi lies at 30 km distance. Many more interesting sites and cities are located in the vicinity. Gubbio, Umbertide, Lago Trasimeno, Cortona and Arezzo in Tuscany, the vineyards or Montefalco and Bevagna, Spello and Trevi are all within easy reach. The Perugia international airport is nearby as well at 18 km distance.
