Restored medieval hamlet in Umbria with four buildings, two pools, horse riding arena and stables
Beautifully restored medieval hamlet in Umbria for sale set in a panoramic position on a hillside in a secluded valley between Umbertide and Città di Castello at only about 9 km from the medieval village of Montone. The property comprises four stone buildings with a fully restored main residence and three annexes, of which two have been fully restored. Well-kept gardens with several terraces and two 5 x 10 m swimming pools, one with adjacent stone-built outside dining area, surround the buildings. The plot comprises about 20 hectares of land, of which 6 hectares are fenced pastures. A 20 x 40 m horse riding school/dressage arena (sand), stables and a hay barn complete the property. The main residential building (about 490 m²) has four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen, dining room, spacious lounge with stone fireplace, cloak room, library, office, games room, gym, laundry room, further bathroom with shower and self-contained service flat for staff. The first annexe building (about 226 m²) has four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, kitchen-dining, and a lounge with access to the gardens and swimming pool. The second annexe building (about 224 m²) has two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, WC/laundry room, workshop, bicycle shed, and two garages. The third annexe building (about 79 m²) is an unrestored former tobacco-drying tower. Plans have been drawn up to create an additional two bedroom accommodation. The equestrian facilities comprise a wood built stable block with six boxes, all fitted with rubber matting, electricity, water, and a tack room with sink and fridge. Brick built stables with three boxes fitted with rubber matting are an ideal isolation or stallion accommodation. The large hay barn and covered area for agricultural equipment complete the equestrian facilities.
