This charming property enjoys a delightful position high up in the hills of northern Umbria. It lies smack in the heart of a triangle between quaint and stunning cities. At the same time the property is immersed in nature and an oasis of tranquility. The main house is habitable but in need of modernisation. The stone annex, in itself large enough as a home, needs a full renovation just like the stable. The property could work great as an agriturismo, a holiday rentals but also as a delightful private residence come to mind. Here we go with the the key features:
The main building is as all country houses in Umbria an old farmhouse which over time has been transformed various time. The ground floor once harboured stables which is still visible in one of the spaces that features the original stone floors. One part consists of an independent unit with a hall, bedroom and bathroom. Three warehouse spaces could be turned into 2 studio apartments, an apartment and an art or yoga studio or whatever else a buyer would need. The first floor can be reached via the traditional external staircase.
The front door opens into a spacious dine-in kitchen. On the right side a hallway gives access to a queen bedroom, bathroom and single room. To the left lies a hallway with access to two bedrooms and one bathroom and a staircase to the attic which harbours various spaces.
If one chooses to do so the layout of the outbuilding can be determined during a renovation. The same is the case for the cute stone shed next to the main house.
Together with the buildings comes a total of 57 ha of land which is mostly divided between woodland, meadows and producing olive groves. A relatively small part lies to the south whereas the majority of the land is located to the north of the buildings. The houses are located on a crest after which the land slopes down into a valley with a stream at the bottom and back up onto the opposite hillside.
Nature rules around this properties. Private homes and agriturismi are littered over the countryside but the nearest amenities are located in the quaint little town of Montone which is about 8 km away. Umbertide, known for its Saturday farmers market and Pietralunga are both 13 km away, while the stunning city of Gubbio lies at 38 km distance. Perugia and the nearest international airport are 44 km to the south while Tuscany is very close and to the north. Beautiful and famous cities lie Cortona, Arezzo are easy destinations, Lago Trasimeno lies at the Tuoro shore which is 61 km away.
