Restored country estate with panoramic views, pool and cypress alley in Umbria
This attractive property is situated high on the hills northeast of Lake Trasimeno in Umbria and offers excellent views to the south and west over the unspoilt countryside and the lake visible in the distance. The location allows easy access to the lake with the towns of Passignano sul Trasimeno and Torricella, Monte del Lago and San Feliciano and the city of Perugia; excellent privacy combined with a short drive to restaurants, shops and all amenities. The property has recently been restored to a high standard and in a way that respects the historical character, using traditional materials such as handmade terracotta floor and ceiling tiles, while at the same time integrating all modern amenities. On the ground floor there is an independent guest apartment consisting of a kitchen-living room, a double bedroom, a bathroom and a private terrace. Also on the ground floor is the entrance door to the main house, which leads to a spacious eat-in kitchen with dining area, from which a cantina (wine cellar) and a bathroom are connected. A staircase leads to the first floor, where there is a large living room with fireplace and beautiful beamed ceilings, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of them en suite. Another room on the first floor, which is currently used as a study, could become an additional bedroom if required. There is gas central heating throughout and air conditioning in the master bedroom. Access to the first floor is also possible via a typical external staircase. The roof is insulated and all windows are double glazed. Inside some beautiful stone walls have been left visible. Directly adjacent to the house is a large covered portico with storage room (approx. 50 m²), which can be used for a car for example, but also offers enough space for an outdoor barbecue and dining area. A main feature of the property is the 8 x 4 m heated swimming pool with counter current system. Immediately around the house there is a landscaped and fenced garden with a cypress-lined driveway leading off the electric wrought iron gate. A plot of approx. 2.5 hectares with pastures and some woodland adjoins. On this associated land, but with a separate entrance gate, there is another small building (approx. 25 m²), which is currently used for the storage of garden furniture, and a carport.
