Two renovated houses the origins of which date back to the 13th century. Of equal size, the two buildings are surrounded by 3 hectares of land with mature gardens and a perfect family pool.
With wonderful views of the Umbrian countryside towards Tuscany, this lovely duo of buildings were originally towers dating back to the 13th century. Surrounded by three hectares of land, one of which is woodland, the buildings have been restored with care and are beautifully maintained.
Both properties are surrounded by an extensive paved area which is perfect for outside dining and entertaining.
Access to the first property is via an arched portico which leads to an open plan kitchen, dining and living room, the latter having a fireplace with wood-burning stove. The first bedroom of four is on the ground floor along with a full bathroom. Stairs lead up to the second floor where there is a second kitchen and another reception room, again with a fireplace, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The second property consists of an open-plan dining room, kitchen and sitting room with AC. There is an adjacent pantry as well as a guest bathroom with shower. On the same ground level there is a main bedroom, a bathroom and library. The first floor has an independent entrance hall, a large bathroom, a study and a large bedroom currently used as an artist's studio. In addition, there is a storeroom and large laundry room.
The second floor has two bedrooms, each one with a terrace, and the bathroom these bedrooms share is on the very top floor of the building.
The properties are surrounded by manicured gardens, with mature cypresses and umbrella pines. A box flanked path leads from the second building to a circular wisteria and trumpet vine covered gazebo and then up onto the swimming pool with spacious surround and strategically planted trees for shade. The pool is perfect for families as it has wide steps and a shallow area for little ones and a 2.4 metre deep end with diving board. Tucked below the pool is a handy kitchen and a shower room along with the technical room which houses the pool pump and equipment.
The nearest amenities are about 2kms away where there is an excellent pharmacy, a bar and pastry shop, a mini supermarket and petrol station. Two kms further there is a specialty butcher's shop. The nearest town with all amenities is Trestina which is a 7km drive and Citta di Castello, a historic market town with all amenities and a hospital is about 15 kms.
Perugia airport is 50 kms with direct flights to the UK, Belgium, Sicily, and Malta. Also, from the 27th of October flights to Milan will be reinstated and that improves accessibility to the rest of the world.
An immaculate property with far-reaching views of the Umbrian countryside.
