Gorgeous stone farmhouse with 360° views, garden and heated pool in Umbria
Casale Sant’Elena, is a gorgeous stone farmhouse offering spacious accommodation, with its own private (heated) swimming pool, terrace and landscaped gardens. Casale Sant’Elena has been fully restored but retains many original features including handmade terracotta floors, a characteristic Umbrian arched kitchen, wooden beamed ceilings, large rooms with high ceilings and long views, terraces to catch the sun all day long, and seating both inside and outside. Outside the house, the ca. 5,000 m² garden with cypress trees and young olive trees extends from both the back and front of the house giving you room for walking and a place for outdoor games, offering 360 degree views of the Umbrian hills and the capital city of Perugia beyond. Quietly situated Casale Sant’Elena is ideal for children and a family holiday yet conveniently close to the many cultural, artistic and culinary delights which attract visitors to Italy. The two small villages nearby offer some basic amenities (bank, small supermarket, bar, pharmacist) in a distance of 2-3 km. On the ground floor you will find an entrance hall, a large fully fitted eat-in kitchen. It is designed with an island workstation unit in the middle with gas hob and granite working surfaces. The kitchen looks out onto the spacious stone patio ideal for outdoor dining. The lounge, next to the dining area, is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine before dinner, a good book or good company. The lounge has two large shuttered French windows facing south and opens to the poolside patio making it feel open and airy. Completing the ground floor are a twin bedroom, a studio used as 6th bedroom and a travertine tiled bathroom. There are four spacious bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom has two large windows, each with a beautiful view. A marble bathroom with travertine tiles and shower adjoins the room. One of the other bedrooms comes with an en suite travertine tiled bathroom with shower and bathtub. The remaining bedrooms are located in the tower section which share a bathroom with shower. There is also a covered terrace (Loggia) on the first floor which can be reached by the internal or outside staircase.
