Privately located stone farmhouse with pool and tennis court on the Tuscan and Umbrian border
This characteristic 17th Century farmhouse is situated near the quaint Etruscan village of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, within easy reach of Città di Castello in the north of Umbria.
The house has been lovingly restored by its current owners and is divided over three floors.
The ground floor consists of a large reception room with fireplace, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen with pantry/utility room and a shower room with WC. The kitchen gives access to a large wisteria-covered terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, with wonderful views of the uncontaminated valley.
A staircase with hand-carved, 1.6 metre wide, stone steps leads to the first floor into a spacious reception room with 17th century fireplace. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of them ensuite. The ceilings of the reception room are over 10 metres in height and are framed by an open gallery which provides access to the 3, second floor, bedrooms.
The all-weather tennis court in concrete is cut into the hill above the house and has spectacular long views of the surrounding countryside. There is furthermore a barn for storing the pool equipment and outside furniture.
There are lovely Mediterranean gardens with olive trees and rosemary and well maintained lawns immediately around the house and 12 x 6 metre pool and sun terraces.
The overall 6 ha of land surrounding the property ensure complete privacy, and include some 100 olive trees as well as truffle woods. Depending on the season, you can find figs, cherries, wild strawberries, mushrooms, the aforementioned truffles and a fruit salad of other fruits.
