About this property

  • Castellucci sits on some 8,000 square metres of land, an easily manageable portion of which has been beautifully landscaped, with a complete and essential irrigation system. A deep well furnishes an ample water supply for both domestic and garden use.

    Castellucci consists of two buildings, a main house and an annex, together with a new 12m x 6m swimming pool. Both buildings have the advantage of being old/new, in the sense that they have been rebuilt to the most modern standards using, however, the original old and new hand-fashioned materials.

    The main house has an upper floor comprising two comfortable living areas, each of which can be embellished with a "stufa" (wood-burning stove), a large kitchen, a bathroom room and hallway. On the lower level, there are two large bedrooms, together with a full bathroom. The spacious, bright kitchen, which opens onto a terrace, has recently been fitted.
    As the name Castellucci implies, the main house is very bright and airy. All bathroom fixtures are modern and of excellent quality. All the doors and windows are hand-crafted in traditional styles. Upstairs, the floors are wood; downstairs, in varying designs, hand-made terracotta tiles have been used.
    The annex, merely a few feet from the main house, has two identical floors. Each comprises an ample bedroom, a large, fully equipped bathroom, together with space for a built-in closet.

    Surrounding the buildings there are stone terraces and walkways, converging onto a swimming pool, which has a stone surround spacious enough for lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas.

    All the equipment, both inside the house and outside, servicing the pool, the irrigation system and other requirements, is new and of high quality; it should provide years of trouble-free service. Castellucci is ready to be furnished to the owner's taste. It will then be ready for many years of delightful use.

Local information

  • Lippiano, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina

Additional information

  • Monte Santa Maria Tiberina is a hilltop village that was once an independent state, one of two places in Europe where duels were legal. Located in the Upper Tiber Valley is has Etruscan roots but a Medieval heart, with narrow streets, historic stone buildings and a panoramic position with unparalleled views of the surrounding area. Close to the border of Umbria and Tuscany it was part of the latter up until 1927. It enjoys the cultural and gastronomic pleasures of both regions, with truffles, porcini mushrooms, excellent olive oil, fantastic wines, and traditionally-made cheeses and salamis. The location is ideal for visiting Arezzo, Citta' di Castello, Monterchi and Perugia.
  • The Bourbon palace, built in the 1500's, dominates this tiny village along with a crenellated castle. The pretty church is dedicated, as the name of the village suggests, to the virgin Mary, and has an interesting baptismal stone font and a Bourbon family chapel. The procession of the Ascension, re-enacted for centuries on the 15th of August, honours the virgin Mary, the protectress of the village. There are several food festivals throughout the year, dedicated to the area's primary products of mushrooms, truffles, chestnuts, and roast pork.
  • Monterchi is a Tuscan town famous for the Madonna del Parto by Piero della Francesca which was painted between 1455 and 1465 in honour of his mother, Romana di Pierino da Monterchi. The beautiful fresco was originally housed in the Capella di Santa Maria di Momentana but is currently in a museum all to itself.
