    About this property

    • Secluded but not isolated, this five bedroom, three bathroom property for sale in Umbria is just 10 minutes by car from the nearest village with every facility, and just 25 minutes from Perugia airport with flights to European destinations.

      The acclaimed Robert Trent Jones 18-hole championship golf course and resort at Antognolla is just 20 kms away whilst the nearby E45 superstrada quickly connects you to many of Umbria's renowned sights.

      The house is set back 200m from the road and built into a small hill reached by a recently resurfaced white road which, in the spring and summer months, is a mass of wild roses, yellow broom and numerous wild flowers where hoopoes, bee-eaters and swallows take up their summer residence!

      Leading from the parking a small path leads to the entrance of the house with a grape vine covered terrace, seating area and barbecue facing the views. French doors open into a spacious and light filled kitchen with fireplace and wood burning stove. The flooring is a light coloured wood laminate and the windows and doors are double glazed and burglar proof with outside metal shutters.

      The ground floor of the house has been opened up with high narrow arches aligned with one another, and from the kitchen you enter a sitting room used as a library/ television viewing room and on through to a second sitting room with a stone staircase leading up to the floor above. French windows open onto a veranda with corrugated roof, and to the garden and swimming pool area.

      The rooms at the back of the house all have traditional vaulted ceilings and are also accessed from the sitting room and consist of a large double bedroom with independent ground floor entrance to the house and bathroom with walk-in shower, hand basin and wc and a small laundry area.

      An outside staircase leads up to the first floor and the bedrooms which can also be reached from the internal staircase from the second sitting room.

      The master bedroom with high beamed ceiling has an additional small bedroom en suite, presently used as a walk-in wardrobe and a ‘him and her' dressing room/ bathrooms, one with hand basin and WC, the other with full bath and hand basin. Windows overlook both front and side views, and it has its own independent entrance off the outside staircase.

      The second door at the top of the outside staircase leads to a double bedroom with high ceiling, windows at the back of the house and views towards the parking area. A second large double bedroom enjoys views both over the front and swimming pool side of the house. A third smaller bedroom has French windows opening onto a bridge leading to the upper garden.

      The upper floor of the house can be easily converted into an autonomous apartment with independent entrance from the outside staircase and independent doors out to the upper garden with steps down to the pool.

      The fenced garden is just under half an acre/ 3600sqm with lawn and grass terraces, olive and cypress trees and is surrounded by countryside.
      An open barn covered with bamboo and climbing roses is shaded by a magnificent and high yielding fig tree and becomes the summer sitting room and event venue.

      To the side of the house overlooking the views, is the swimming pool facing west with full sun most of the day. Steps lead from the pool to the upper garden and to the bridge which takes you back into the house on the upper level.
