With 30 hectares of producing olive groves, a lovely original old farmhouse and a private olive mill things can hardly get any better. It can work great as an agriturismo or B&B or simply create your absolute dream home. And there is more to it:
The old farmhouse is definitely a character home full of great potential! It has undergone some renovation work years ago during which the roof was replaced. Structurally it’s in a decent state but it does require e full renovation in order to use its full potential. The ground floor is still original and features the old stables. There is a large old garage as well and of course the external staircase leading to the first floor living quarters. It has been covered and turned into a nice loggia from which one can enjoy the picture perfect view of Panicale, a nearby village, as well as the sunset.
Even for a novice at renovating it is easy to see the many possibilities to turn this old building into a delightful home and or accommodation. For any questions regarding the work you can ask us directly for information. W are part of the Renovating in Umbria group which has handled renovations and new constructions for foreigners for over 25 years and enjoys a great reputation.
The frantoio, or olive mill, is a recent construction and consist of various large open spaces. The right wing has two large doors to enable agricultural vehicles to enter and is used as storage and parking. The left wing consists of the actual production area, storage space, bathrooms and office spaces.
An agricultural company will be allowed to build additional spaces for a variety of purposes.
The land covers a part of a mainly west facing hillside and is all one large plot. The olive groves are set up in a convenient way with plenty of space in between the trees and car trails for the maintenance and harvest activities. The land is sloping gently which is a huge advantage as well.
Currently the 30 ha olive grove is a working farm and produces a great quality oil. One can continue the business, but of course also add onto it organising tastings, harvest events, guided tours and other touristic activities. The seller is available to share his knowledge and business information, the working men can continue their work if desired.
The property lies in the hills above Tavernelle, a small town with all amenities for daily life.
