Original stone-built house in exceptional location near Umbertide in Umbria
This stone-built house is situated in a fantastic panoramic position close to a historic castle and has preserved its original character. It is estimated that the house, which has about 270 m² of living and usable space, was built about 100 years ago. It is nestled in a fantastic natural environment and is located in the immediate vicinity of the impressive historical ruins of the castle. During the house's restoration work, all the old characteristics of an Umbrian farmhouse have been preserved, such as ceilings with wooden beams, terracotta floors and brick fireplaces. Around the house there are about 5.700 m² of own land with olive trees, partly terraced and offering enough space for the construction of a swimming pool. On the ground floor of the house there is an entrance hall with wardrobe, a cosy farmhouse kitchen with fireplace, a living room with fireplace, which is divided by a beautiful arch made of natural stone, as well as a bathroom. From the kitchen you have direct access to the pergola, where you can enjoy outdoor dining. A storeroom accessible from the outside is also part of this level. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and another bathroom. Two rooms (ca. 58 m²) that are accessed by an external staircase are still in need of renovation.
