The key characteristics of this property are:
The mansion (520 sqm)was built finished in 2011 with the use of outstanding craftsmanship. With its fantastic design and stonework the first impression is quite stately. The symmetric style and square shape reflect the features of a ‘casa padronale’, traditionally the main house of an important farm. The external staircase and loggia remind us of its original use with stables on the ground floor and living quarters on the first floor. Throughout the house only the best materials have been used while creating a delightful mix between traditional and contemporary design. Wooden beams and cotto floors are the trademarks of Umbrian buildings whereas especially the comfortable and convenient layout enhances the modern atmosphere. All systems will satisfy all modern demands.
The front door opens to a lovely hallway with cross vaulted ceiling. Large open spaces divided by wide arches can be found on both sides of the entrance. To the left are a substantial sitting room and dining area. Various door open up to the spacious covered porch which offers a beautiful view of the pool area and rose garden.

A second lounge and entertainment area at situated to the right of the entrance. The higher windows mimic the style of the old stables.
The space of the centrally located stairs again showcases the marvelous expertise of the builders. The wall design, arched niches, height and other characteristics blend together in a perceptible and sophisticated castle style. The staircase itself is wide, easy and though placed in the heart of the building very bright. The elevator can be used for both people and luggage. A powder room and back entrance are nicely tucked away in a separate hallway.
The first floor harbours 4 bedrooms all 4 of which enjoy the comfort of a spacious en-suite bathroom, each of which with a different color scheme. The main bedroom includes a sitting area.
From the secondary gate one has direct access to the annex (75 sqm), whereas from the main house it can be reached on foot. The building spreads out over two floors. On the top floor at garden level are the guest quarters. The two identical guest apartments both consist of an ample open plan living and kitchen. They offer a spacious and pleasant bedroom with adjoining a comfortable bathroom.
