Description

We’ve known this darling property for years by now and are excited to start hunting for a new owner! Are you looking for an easy home in a very authentic little town? Where you simply just turn the key to either enjoy or leave for other adventures? Are you into character and quirky yet practical and comfortable? Keep reading and let’s see if this home is your match! In short it offers:

  • a quiet location only steps from the main square
  • plenty of old features for charm and “fascino”
  • the best layout a medieval town house can have
  • a brand-new roof done in 2020
  • bright and functional space

The house

As this city dates back to roman times the roots of this town house might do so as well. When wandering around historic centres it  is quite easy to see how buildings have been modified re- and up-cycled during the centuries while maintaining their some what austere and sober medieval appearance. The good part about this continuing cycle is that every owner updates these houses into a more liveable modern version, which is the case with this dwelling as well.

There are two ways to enter the home. One is the regular front door, the other one the nice wooden door into the “cantina” or cellar space.  This cantina offer plenty of very convenient storage space and also serves as a laundry room. The staircase brings us to the 1st floor which harbours a cosy kitchen with breakfast nook, the dining room and a spacious bathroom with shower. By reinstalling a flu it is possible to bring the old dining room fireplace back to life.  The colours on these two levels are a warm and sunny orange and yellow, but if your taste is different that is obviously easy to change.

From the dining room a second set of stairs lead up to a the tv room with a beautiful autentico ceiling made with wooden beams. This space gives access to the comfy main bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower. The skylight over the bed allows more natural light to enter.

The soothing pale blue continues while going up the third staircase which is made with old bricks. The top floor is one large open space which can serve for example as another lounge, as guest bedroom or study. The balcony is a delightful place to enjoy the outdoors and the view of the moutons behind all the ancient roof. Another skylight provides plenty of light also in this room whereas the wooden ceiling adds warmth and style.

The surroundings

Acquasparta is an ancient little town located in the hills between the famous hilltop city Todi and the oldest city of Umbria, Amelia. It is slightly off the beaten track and not yet invaded by foreigners. The name is derived from the Latin Acquas partas, indicating the overwhelming amount of springs and veins in the area. The town offers all amenities for daily life and access to the E45 highway ensures swift connections.

The countryside is littered with beautiful medieval hamlets and there are plenty of interesting sites and cities nearby to explore . Spoleto with its annual music festival, the vineyards of Monte Falco and Spoleto, Orvieto with its underground city and cathedral, but also the Terni city center is worth exploring! The nearest airports are at 56 km Perugia, the city which also offers the Jazz and chocolate festivals, and Rome at 146 km distance.

Should you require any additional information or like to plan a visit then please let us know, we will gladly assist you in any way we can.

Sincerely,

Caroline
