Restored former barn in a peaceful location with breathtaking views near Città di Castello
Nestling in the hills of Umbria, on the border of Tuscany this restored former seccatoio (barn) is situated in a peaceful, yet not isolated location offering breathtaking views. The approx. 250 m² house was fully rebuilt in 2005 by the present owners creating a thoroughly modern house built on the original footprint, using the original stones. You enter the house in a large reception room with impressive wooden beams, stone fireplace and parquet floor. The room has sliding glass doors opening onto the pergola covered terrace which overlooks the Morra valley, perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing. From the reception room you reach a lovely fully fitted eat-in kitchen, with guest bathroom and utility room. Stairs lead to the intermediate floor where is situated the master bedroom, with air conditioning and a spacious en-suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. On the top floor there are two attic rooms used as double bedroom, single bedroom and shower room. The easy manageable garden around the house is lawned and has plenty of room to build a swimming pool. There is a bar and restaurant at approx. 400 meters distance. The large village of Trestina has everything from doctors, pharmacists, bank, post office, supermarkets and its own train station. The majority of the furniture and fittings are available by separate negotiation.
