Authentically restored country estate for sale with guest house and pool
This authentically restored country estate for sale is situated in central Italy in the triangle Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. The property for sale is surrounded by rolling hills and farmland and comprises a very well-tended garden (about 1.1 ha) with swimming pool (10 x 5 m), palm tress, fruit- and nut trees, cypresses, an impressive oak tree and a herb garden. The main country house (about 219 m²) was completely restored and its original style has been preserved in the process. A state-of-the-art thermal solar system and photovoltaic modules have also been fitted. The building materials used are indicative to the region such as terra cotta tiles and chestnut beams, -windows and -doors. The main country house can be used as one spacious private residence or divided into two apartments, simply by closing and soundproofing one door. The surrounding terrain and garden is well designed to provide both units with private outside sitting areas on opposite sides of the building as well as easy access to the garden and pool. The first and larger apartment in the main country house stretches on two floors. The ground floor offers a large living room with beautiful fireplace and gallery. The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and the eat-in kitchen with pantry and separate laundry connect to the large living room. The first floor features a comfortable sitting area on the gallery and a second bedroom with bathroom. The second apartment in the main country house is located on the first floor, can be accessed from the gallery and via an external staircase, and comprises a bedroom/sitting room with fireplace, kitchen and a bathroom. The private terrace has beautiful views across the pool area and towards Monte Amiata, and is the perfect place to enjoy your sunset aperitif. A newly constructed and detached guest house (about 49 m²) is located about 70 m from the main country house and perfectly matches the estate's overall style. The guest house is designed on one floor and has a living room with sitting corner and fireplace, dining area, fully-equipped kitchenette, bedroom and a bathroom. A lovely pergola on east is ideal for breakfast. The location is perfect as the property is centrally located to historical centres such as Perugia (about 85 km), Orvieto (about 38 km), Siena (about 92 km) and Florence (about 172 km). Rome and its international airport are only about 160 km away. Lake Bolsena is about 15 km away and the seaside can be reached in about an hour.
