Umbrian farmhouse with 4 bedrooms and a swimming pool. Fantastic view of the Niccone valley and close to the border with Tuscany. A perfect family holiday home.
Vista Niccone was rebuilt on the site of an old Umbrian farmhouse in a splendid and isolated location in the Niccone valley ten minutes from the nearest village and not far from the border between Umbria and Tuscany, Vista Niccone is perfect for those seeking a tranquil, rural retreat which is ideally situated for exploring the nearby cultural and historic treasures of Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno.
On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, a reception room with fireplace and doors to the garden, a hallway with stairs to the upper floor, a guest cloakroom and a very spacious open-plan dining room and kitchen with access to the covered dining terrace. There is a large storage room adjacent to the kitchen. Beyond the reception room is a hallway leading to a cute little twin bedroom with ensuite and its own private terrace and from the same hallway a second set of stairs lead up to a double bedroom with bathroom ensuite.
The principal staircase leads up to a large landing. To the left is the master bedroom with dressing area and bathroom ensuite. This room opens onto the typically Umbrian loggia (external staircase) at the foot of which there is the old, but fully functional, bread oven. The landing opens onto a spacious ante-camera with access to a large bathroom and a bedroom; also large. The ante-camera could easily be used as an occasional bedroom or, with a bit of a re-shuffle, there is ample space to create an extra bedroom.
The views from the house are breath-taking as are the walks in the surrounding countryside. There is a beautiful 10 x 5 metre swimming pool and ample terrace set in gardens with 8 olive trees, various nut trees and a barbecue. All necessary facilities are available in the market town of Umbertide which is twenty minutes away.
The house has a reliable well for water, a gas tank for the central heating and domestic hot water and 11 kW mains power. Vista Niccone is in a very quiet spot 5 km from the SS416 at Spedalicchio. The road is in excellent condition.
