Magnificent house of natural stone with outbuildings and pool in dominant panoramic position in Umbria
The property consists of a spacious stone-built farmhouse with guest house, barn and panoramic pool in a quiet location near the medieval village of Montone in Umbria, the "green heart of Italy". The property has been renovated with great taste and attention to detail, preserving the original features of the house such as barrel vaults, beautiful natural stone walls and a large brick fireplace, which, combined with modern amenities, creates an extremely comfortable home. The approx. 1.2 hectares of land around the buildings provide wonderful privacy, especially in this exceptional panoramic location. Around the house and accessible from the kitchen and living room through French windows, there is a large terrace and sunbathing lawn with magnificent, undisturbed views over the surrounding landscape and the valley. Nearby there is a covered pergola for outdoor dining. A well-kept small path leads to the swimming pool in panoramic position. There are olive groves behind and in front of the house. At the back of the guesthouse there is a footpath that leads through an oak forest down to a creek. The property is ideally located, with a lot of privacy, but with an asphalted road leading to it. The main house has on the ground floor an entrance hall leading to a very spacious living/dining room connected by beautiful arches, a fully equipped, made-to-measure kitchen made of oak with island unit and granite worktops, a bedroom, a bathroom and a useful utility room with plenty of storage space. On the first floor there is an inviting living room with a large stone fireplace and four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The guest house offers a living room with kitchen corner on the ground floor and two bedrooms each with their own bathroom on the upper floor. A barn also on the property, which can still be restored, is currently used as a store for swimming pool equipment. Montone, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is only a few kilometres away from the property and offers a very good selection of recommended restaurants. In the piazza there are two charming bars and several local shops (two grocery stores, a bakery and a delicatessen with a selection of good local products). There is also a bank with ATM, post office, pharmacy, doctor and dentist. Umbertide is the next big city with several supermarkets, a weekly market and its own restaurants and bars.
