Exceptional country estate in Umbria with 90 ha of land, panoramic views, pool and olive groves
This Italian country estate looks back on an interesting history, a previous owner was the theatre director Luca Ronconi, the large country house was designed by the designer and architect Gae Aulenti. The impressive estate sits on a south-facing slope, offering sweeping panoramic views of the beautiful Umbrian countryside, with views of the Perugia skyline a few kilometres away. The main house was restored and modernised again in 2020, with great taste. At a pleasant distance and out of sight of the main house is an outbuilding, which has been completely renovated and is successfully rented out to international holiday guests during the summer months. The current owners have again renovated and modernised the entire house and two large limonaies have been built in the lower olive grove, which are also suitable as studios or workshops. The pool is an experience in itself and offers plenty of space on various terrace levels. Next to the pool there is another outbuilding with 2 showers and a small flat with a kitchenette and a bathroom. The buildings are surrounded by a garden with majestic cypresses and a fine collection of peonies, as well as several terraces with lovely seating areas. Olive groves surround the large country house, on the south side of which a portico invites you to dine and linger al fresco. Another large country house with outbuildings, which are in need of complete restoration, are also on the property. In addition, there is a stable building for horses with three boxes, a dog kennel, a greenhouse and a covered area for 4 cars (car port). The approximately 90 ha of surrounding land are contiguous (9.25 ha of olive grove; 43.9 ha of arable land; 14.1 ha of pasture land; 21 ha of woodland). The property is run as a farm and apart from the holiday rental of the guest house, there is further income from the cultivation of the land. This property offers exceptional privacy with easy access to the city of Perugia and its airport to the south and the village of Umbertide to the north.
