The main building was the most important one in the time when the property was still just a farm. It’s shape and architectural characteristics are clearly those of a so-called casa padronale. Over time the owners mixed in details or their own style and taste, thus creating a clever and eclectic mixture of medieval, liberty and contemporary.
The ground floor harbours a large kitchen with stained glass doors on both sides, giving access to the garden and courtyard. There is also a sitting room with an impressive ancient stone fireplace, a dining room and a very spacious bathroom. Up the beautiful wooden stairs are 4 bedrooms with comfortable ensuite bathrooms. Three of them have access to balconies that offer wonderful views of the surrounding hills.
The dependance (90 sqm) is an independent which sits opposite of the main house. This unit consists of a living and kitchen on the ground floor, two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. It can work great either as a rental unit, caretakers house or owners quarters. At the back a shielded garden enjoys full privacy.
The other buildings are divided between 2 independent ones and a line up of what once was a little street. The separate ones are a little two story tower like structures which is in fairly decent shape. Of the other building, a much larger farmhouse the roof has collapsed and it will need a full renovation.
The ground floor of the long stretch of buildings offers the former stables at the ground floor and even an old bread oven has remained. The first floors have been partially structurally renovated. These spaces offer enormous potential as accommodation, shop or meeting spaces, or for example even a spa. It all depends on the project of a future owner, all options are open!
For the renovation work our group Renovating in Umbria is readily available.
With the property are included 12 ha of land. The surface is divided between woodland and farmland which is currently in use as such.
