It’s not easy to explain what it is about this property, but it has a certain very special vibe to it that we really like! It lies just outside and really close to the bustling university city Perugia. Yet at the same time it is backed by the lush green countryside of central Umbria. The deconsecrated church is for sure a very special part of the property. But that’s not all there is too it!

  • the location and position both work wonderfully as well for various concepts

  • as the building needs a full renovation it can be personalized in many ways

  • the old bell tower and many other original features are still present

  • lots of the original materials have been recuperated

  • subsidies available


The building

The church was built in the 15th century.  Originally it was a little outpost of the main church in Torgiano. As time past by the location gained importance and became the principal church of the community. Centuries later all of that was lost again and eventually the church was abandoned,  desecrated and sold. The current owner started renovation work but has decided to sell the property in its current state. This gives buyers the delightful opportunity to continue the renovation according to their own ideas and needs!

The church ceiling and bell tower have been renovated and consolidated. The interior needs to be finished and has phenomenal potential for  gorgeous open space living, or for a combination of other purposes. The quite large building behind the church offers plenty of space for various apartments or other use. Part of it still needs to be constructed, part needs to be finished.

The slide show includes various renderings of the project. Please be advised that the building is protected by restrictions regarding the exterior. For information on the work at hand you can contact us directly. We are part of the Renovating in Umbria group that handles renovation and construction work for foreigners. Our approach, team, methods and communication are all dedicated to clients who live abroad while we build their dream. It is currently possible to obtain subsidies for the renovation work, ask us for the details!

The land

Though the total amount of square meters is not that much the outdoor area certainly does not feel tight. The church sits on a promontory which slopes down  below it and gives an airy and open feel to it. A giant old oak and various olive trees enhance the authentic look.

The surroundings

Though the municipality where the property is located is Torgiano it lies actually a little closer to Perugia. Torgiano is one of the Borghi più belli d’Italia and know for its history and vineyards. Perugia has been an important city throughout the history of Umbria and is so still today. The historic center is absolutely gorgeous and as a large city the amenities are all you can ask for.

Central Umbria has a lot to offer to its visitors. The vineyards of Bevagna dn Montefalco are famous like  cities  as Assisi, Trevi, Spello and Spoleto. Lago Trasimeno is nearby and even Tuscany is within easy reach. Art, oil, culture, cashmere, nature and excellent food are no doubt the keywords for this region. The nearest international airport is located near Perugia.

Please contact us for additional information or to schedule a (video) visit, we will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
