This enchanting old house enjoys a quiet, slightly isolated and very private location in the hills north of Perugia. A long gravel road leads up to the property and ends right there, making it a place without any noise or disturbance of any kind. Immersed in nature with sweeping views of the unspoiled landscape it is an oasis of tranquility.
The old home was once a farmhouse with the typical characteristics of that category. It was built in stone and in two consecutive phases. The ground floor spaces served as stables and still features a large arch that allowed a carriage to be stored inside. The traditional external staircase led up to the living quarters and obviously the inhabitants made use of their own wood oven.
The building has suffered neglect after it has been abandoned, the sad story of many of these beautiful homes. A buyer can decide to maintain the best part and renovate it while adding on a nex extension. Another possibility is to demolish everything, move to a slightly higher location and build a whole new house. The total available surface is approximately 375 sqm.

The land included in the property covers about 30 ha and consists mainly of woodland and some arable land which has not been used for a long time. It offers great opportunities for hiking and exploring as well as a small agricultural development. Water comes from a spring at a lower position in the property, it is possible to drill a well.
