Delightful property with infinity pool and spectacular views over the Valle Umbra
This wonderful property, composed of a 250-year old main house and two annexe buildings, completed with splendid gardens and an infinity pool, is the perfect example of the Italian dream. While the house and gardens take their fair share of the credit, it is the location that takes centre stage. The views are nothing less than breathtaking! Most of the rooms and ground offer spectacular views of the Valle Umbra, from Assisi and Bettona over Spello, Trevi and Montefalco, up until Spoleto. The main house was lovingly restored in 2015/2016, with all rooms replastered and repainted following a completely new electrical system for lights and sockets, a new kitchen and all bathrooms updated. Works also included the building of the swimming pool and the surrounding terraces and pool room. An alarm system has been installed linked to monitoring, there is WiFi via a dish which delivers about 15Mbps, Sky TV and there are CCTV cameras which can be accessed via the internet. The main house is spread over two levels. You enter the ground level into an entrance hall with guest bathroom and laundry room. Though a snug sitting room you reach a large reception room with wood burning stove and access to a panoramic terrace and a fully fitted eat-in kitchen with open fire and access to the side terrace. There are furthermore 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. From the sitting room, stairs lead to the first floor which can also be reached through an external staircase. There is a spacious study/TV room with wood burning stove and access to a large terrace with again amazing views. Completing the first floor are 2 more bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, one of which with bath tub. The first annexe building, situated on a lower level, could be used as a studio and has its own terrace with BBQ-area. Further down is located the 16.9 x 6.6 m infinity pool with sun terrace, relaxation area and adjacent pool house. Needless to say that also from here the views are simply astonishing.
