This property could come straight out of the books of C.J. Lewis! The ruins lie on a small hilltop that’s surrounded by meadows and woodland. When exploring the site more and more bits and pieces pop up as ghosts from the past. The main building was situated at the top with what must have been annexes spilling down the south side. Rebuilding the original shape is probably not the best idea but how about a sleek modern structure rising up out of these ancient walls? History and contemporary design make a superb combination and it is easy to imagine how unique, stylish yet enchanting the result can be! Let’s see what else this delightful property has to offer:
The remains of the monastery consist of parts and pieces of the old walls. Some of them still showcase beautiful features and openings. Our suggestion would be to integrate these original parts into a new contemporary design in a way that the contrast between old and new with emphasises both of them.
The property includes 10 ha of land divided between woodlands and meadows. The land slopes gently and is easily manageable. There is of course ample space for a pool, a tennis or paddle court. With some easy landscaping the setting can be improved in a way that will definitely enhance the future building.
The nearest amenities are located 3 km at the Ripa Bianca mall, with the access to the E45. Marsciano is the nearest city with all you need for daily life at 14 km.
