Part of a hamlet, these two properties plus a hay-barn to restore, have 2,000 square metres of mature garden.
Located only 800 metres from the small Umbrian village of Morra and set in a little cluster of buildings, the property consists of two independent but attached houses as well as a mature garden and a picturesque old barn requiring renovation.
Property one is the smaller of the two measuring approximately 75 square metres. On three levels it consists of a ground floor bedroom with outdoor access via French doors and a bathroom with shower. The kitchen/sitting room is on the first floor and opens out onto an adorable little bridge that connects the property to its own 50 square metre private garden with lawn and hedging. The second double bedroom is on the upper floor along with a full bathroom with skylight. The property has central heating as well as a fireplace with wood-burning stove.
Property two, once a mill, is also on three floors and measures approximately 85 square metres. It has an entrance hall, a kitchen and a dining room, with wood-burner, on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to the first floor sitting room which has an elevated fireplace, again fitted with a wood-burning stove. Also on this floor is a bedroom and a bathroom with tub. A large second bedroom is on the top floor.
The paved area that runs alongside both properties and under the aforementioned bridge is perfect for dining and entertaining.
It would be simple to join the properties together in order to create a single dwelling, with the necessary paperwork of course, but as is, either one of the properties is perfect for guests, paying or otherwise. The barn requires complete renovation but could, with the appropriate permissions, be transformed into extra accommodation or a studio of some sort. It would be a great starter project for anyone keen to renovate and, due to its location on the plot, the eventual work wouldn't interfere too much with the remainder of the property.
Approximately 2,000 square of mature and garden surround the properties and the land slopes very gently down to a flat meadow which would be the spot on which to put an eventual pool, a large vegetable patch or just leave as is. There is an enormous oak tree in the garden as well a number of mature fruit trees including fig, walnut and pear.
Both properties are full of character with terracotta floor and ceiling tiles and traditional exposed chestnut wood beams throughout; those on the top floor bedrooms being particularly beautiful. All fixed lighting is energy efficient LED and though the second house does not have central heating the wood-burners provide sufficient heat to keep it cosy and warm in the winter.
Despite being attached to each other and to other houses in the hamlet, both of the properties enjoy privacy whilst benefitting from the proximity of neighbours. All white goods, the wood-burners and some items of furniture are included in the sale. Well and constantly maintained, the restored houses are welcoming and conveniently located and the barn could potentially provide extra space if required.
