Two properties with terrific views of Lake Trasimeno set in 1.4 hectares of mature gardens. Pool, tennis court, solar panels for hot water.
Looking out over lake Trasimeno and set in 1.4 hectares of mature gardens this duo of properties has both a pool and a tennis court. The main house was restored in 2010 and the second, larger farmhouse is to a builder's finish.
The restored property, measuring 220 square metres, comprises an open-plan ground floor with modern kitchen, walk through living/dining room and a glassed in sun room with panoramic view. The floors are paved with marble tiles and the elegant fireplace is also decorated with marble of various colours. There are two bedrooms, both with terraces that overlook the lake. Both of the bedrooms have bathrooms.
The second building is slightly larger at 240 square metres and is to a builder's finish. It could be restored as one large house or divided into two separate apartments for rental purposes or extra family members.
No expense has been spared with the landscaping and the garden has abundant mature plants and shrubs as well as numerous terraces from which to enjoy the view. In addition there is an olive grove with 170 trees, a 7x15 metre pool with electric cover, a tennis court with resin playing surface, an external hydro-massage spa tub as well as the more usual BBQ and bread oven. An important thing to note is the lack of need for gas, everything is powered by electricity assisted by photovoltaic panels.
Perugia and the airport are about 40 minutes away and access South to Rome and North to Florence is easy by both road and rail. Passignano Sul Trasimeno is on the northern edge of the lake. Though a fortress was constructed in medieval times, the actual town developed between the 16th and 17th centuries when the renaissance style church of San Rocco and the sanctuary of the Madonna dell Oliveto were built. In the 18th century the Bourbons of Sorbello built their summer residence, the Villa del Pischiello, a few kilometres from the town.
