The ancient farmhouse used to be the center of a busy family life but has been abandoned a long time ago. It sits on the highest part of its 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 its 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 can be recycled during renovation or construction work.
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
A full scale renovation or reconstruction of the farmhouse is required. For this job we recommend our colleagues from Renovating in Umbria that have handled many great project in Umbria and have an excellent portfolio of finished projects. Do check their site and socials for up to date info.
