Real estate for sale - Country houses
Retreat with 12 bedrooms in the Umbrian mountains
Situated on a ridge in the beautiful Umbrian countryside amidst its own 39 hectares of land, this estate is currently being successfully run as a sustainable eco-estate. The property consists of a main building on three floors with 12 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms, meeting rooms, and a main kitchen with shared dining area on the ground floor. A huge glass fronted studio with high ceilings ideal as congress/yoga room with bathroom has a wine cellar and workshop underneath. There is also a technical room. An adjacent outbuilding is divided on the ground floor into a flat with kitchen-living room, bedroom and bathroom, and on the upper floor, accessed by a typical external staircase, there is a second flat with kitchen-living room, two bedrooms and bathroom. A small stone building serves as a reception area. Covered BBQ and outdoor cooking area. Gardens, vineyard, olive groves and a 12 x 5 m salt water swimming pool. There are various stables and barns, including two greenhouses. Furthermore there are two ruins which can be developed (otherwise there is a total ban on building). Biomass heating is used in this planet-friendly paradise, including olive pits and garden waste. There are areas for horses, goats and pigs, fields and plentiful own woodland as a fuel source. There is a real sense of earthy warmth throughout the property. The large glass fronted studio with panoramic views is perfect for relaxing mind and body and is also suitable for musicians, artists and yoga groups. Most of the bathrooms have been modernised by the current owner. The entire property is in a quiet location with unobstructed views and sunsets, yet only 8 kilometres from Umbertide with all shopping facilities.
