Stone farmhouse with annex buildings, pool, lake and approx. 9 ha of land near Montone
Situated in a panoramic location in the rolling hills around Montone in Umbria, the property is surrounded by a mature garden with tall trees, about 60 different varieties of roses and many other shrubs and plants. In addition there is a 14×7 m tiled pool and a private lake. Most of the property for sale, approx. 9 ha of land, mostly pasture with some woodland, is fenced and divided in different areas for animals. The current owners have sheep and a part is rented to a neighbour, who is an organic farmer using the meadows for his cows. The property is ideal also for horses as it has about 2 ha of flat land, ideal for a paddock. The property borders with a small brook with running water all year round. The house was lovingly restored some 30 years ago and the roof was replaced and insulated in 2003, and, although very well maintained, the house could benefit from some refurbishment. Because of its hillside position the house can be entered on two levels: on the upper floor through the fully fitted, eat-in kitchen with fireplace, which has access to a large terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. From the kitchen a hallway leads to a guest bedroom, a bathroom with shower and an office space, ending in the master bedroom with parquet floor. An internal staircase leads to the lower floor where you can find a sitting room with wood burning stove, a third bedroom, a bathroom with shower and bathtub, a laundry room with a further shower and WC, and a hallway and arched front door with access to the garden. Under the kitchen, there is a large cellar which is accessed from the outside. The ex-hay barn on one floor, restored to a garage and storeroom/studio could, with planning approval, be converted into a secondary accommodation. The pool house with covered pergola offers storage for the pool equipment, a changing room, a supplementary pantry (fridge, freezer, shelving), a traditional pizza oven and another storeroom ideal for suitcases. There is furthermore a timber framed car port of approximately 50 m², a green house and a utility room under the pool. The water supply is by means of two private wells with abundant water as well as a lake. There is the possibility to obtain an additional water supply from the Comunità Montana. The property can be described as a small oasis due to its versatility and abundance of water. There is a photovoltaic panels array, ground mounted, 6 kWh rating, providing an income from production subsidies and feeding into the grid, plus a sizeable reduction in consumption cost.
