A superb county estate or for example delightful hospitality opportunity, this property is suitable for both and more! This renovation project offers:
The property is situated in a dominant position in the woodlands that surround Umbertide, near the border between Tuscany and Umbria. The buildings have withstood centuries to make it to this modern era and time has taken its toll. A full scale restoration however can turn it into a very special one of a kind piece of real estate. Because of its characteristics it can serve various purposes. A luxury estate, boutique hotel, retreat, apartments for rental or sale, the possibilities are many.
Included in the sale will be 5 hectares of land, divided between olive groves and arable land. This plot can be extended should a potential buyer like to do so. The property is surrounded by agricultural land of the same owner.
The property has developed over centuries of time and started out in medieval times with just the pieve or church. Living quarters were added and looking at the courtyard (60 sq m) most like it became a monastery. For the livestock stables were needed and the result was a small hamlet. As time went by the property was abandoned and without the necessary maintenance and upkeep it suffered quite a lot of damage. Some parts are beyond saving and will need a complete reconstruction. Other parts may be partially renovated. The renderings give an excellent idea of the potential of the buildings.
The position of the hamlet is dominant and offers a 300 degrees view.
The enchanting little town of Umbertide is situated about 10 minutes away. It is only one of the many quaint towns in the well known Niccone valley. The city features a quaint historic center with all possible amenities. The Robert Trent Jones Antognolla golf course is nearby and offers great golf possibilities. To the east Cortona in Tuscany and Lago Trasimeno are within easy reach. In the other directions Perugia (international airport), Gubbio and Città di Castello are nearby places of historic interest.
