Historic Tuscan estate in the rolling hills of the Upper Tiber Valley
This historic estate is located amidst the rolling Tuscan hills of the upper Tiber Valley, overlooking the Lake of Montedoglio and Catenaia Alps between Caprese Michelangelo, Anghiari and Sansepolcro. The buildings are made of natural stone and form an exceptionally beautiful ensemble on a plot of about 2.2 hectares with an almost magical atmosphere that every visitor immediately senses. The residential building currently offers four flats on two and a half floors, the barn has a workshop, cellar and garage as well as a spectacular loggia and an adjoining room on one and a half floors. The building complex also includes another small outbuilding. When restoring the property with typical features such as terracotta tiles, natural stone slabs, original beamed ceilings, fireplaces and a historic bread and pizza oven, the owners have made a point of preserving as much of the original character of the buildings as possible and creating a relaxed country house atmosphere. The land consists mainly of meadows. The embedding of the buildings in the south-facing hillside oriented towards the lake creates beautiful outdoor areas. The hillside is formed by terraces with a mixed variety of trees and shrubs. Immediately next to the residential building is a large terrace with magnificent views of Lago di Montedoglio and the Tiber Valley. The "strada bianca", which connects the property (approx. 600 m to the main provincial road) and the neighbouring properties, is part of the historic pilgrimage route between the monastery of La Verna and Assisi. This part of Tuscany, on the border with Umbria, Emilia Romagna and close to the Marche, is away from the main stream of tourists, but has much to offer in terms of scenery: the valley of the Tiber River, which has its source nearby, the adjoining undulating landscapes, but also the ridges of the Catenaia Alps, which are among the highest elevations in Tuscany.
