A gem of an Umbrian property, in a small group of houses with far reaching views. Swimming pool, 43 olive trees and an additional building to restore.
Set in a small group of houses near the ancient hilltop hamlet of Campello Alto, between Perugia and Spoleto, this lovely home is almost a hamlet within a hamlet. The main building, of about 180sqm, which is attached on one side, has outbuildings which form an elongated courtyard and create the 'hamlet' feel that is so unusual. The main house is laid out over three floors, of which the lower floor consists of cantina/storage rooms, and the upper floors the accommodation. The house is full of beautiful original features, with arches and ancient wooden ceilings and an open fireplace in the living room. The ground floor consists of a kitchen, dining room with wood burning stove, living room with the fireplace, smaller reception room, and a bathroom. The top floor, accessed by internal stairs, consists of three bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom has a glass door leading onto a small terrace.
Outside the house is a terrace, perfect for catching the sun, and opposite are the outbuildings. There are shallow steps that lead down between the house and the outbuildings, towards the garden and the pool. One of the outbuildings is fully restored and set up as a small workshop. The other, more sprawling outbuilding, is split into several sections and requires restoration, but has wonderful potential for various uses. The kidney shaped pool is in the lower garden and enjoys great views from this elevated position, across the valley towards the area of Montefalco.
This is a beautiful property and a most unusual find. Perfect either as a holiday home or for full time living, as the current owners use it.
