The building

The ancient farmhouse used to be the center of a bustling family life but has been abandoned a long time ago. It sits on the highest part of it’s own private hilltop with stunning panoramic views in every direction. Weather and lack of maintenance took their toll but it is still easy to imagine it’s charming and natural appearance. Some of the ground floor rooms are in reasonable condition and the old wood oven is still intact. The roof has in most places collapsed so the first floor is hardly passable. The stone walls consist of grey stone from the local quarry and offer great potential for a new owner.

Just below the main house there is an outbuilding of about 70 square meters to be rebuild. Next to the house lies a quite charming garage.

The work

A full scale renovation of the farmhouse is required and it will include structural interventions as well. For this job we recommend our colleagues from Renovating in Umbria that have done many great project in Umbria and have an excellent portfolio of finished projects. Do check their site and socials for up to date info.

The land

The land is positioned on a hilltop and part of a larger property. This means it’s shape is to be determined and it is possible to purchase additional land up to 18 ha total which consists of farmland and woodland. Near the house there is a nice fish pond. A deep well can provide water for the house, garden and pool.

The area

The municipality of Avigliano Umbro covers quite an extensive territory. Ancient but lively villages, friendly people and a diverse scenery create a wonderful and welcoming place to live. The gorgeous nature offers plenty of possibility for horse riding, hiking and biking as well as sight seeing. The nearest village is Melezzole which offers a bar, post office, several shops and a restaurant.  Many other famous and fascinating cities lie within easy reach like for example Todi at 20 km, Orvieto at 35 km and Amelia at 23 km distance.  The nearest international airport is Perugia at 70 km distance.
