Stunning estate with two beautifully restored farmhouses, two swimming pools, olive grove and views of Assisi
Situated in the green heart of Umbria, this striking property for sale is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and enjoys to-die-for, panoramic views all the way to Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis.
The estate consists of two farmhouses, a larger one (ca. 430 m²) with separate guest/staff accommodation, the second one (ca. 230 m²) divided into a main flat and two small guest flats, each with their own separate entrance. Both are set in private gardens, each with its own pool.
Both houses have been carefully restored, preserving original features such as exposed stone walls, terracotta floors and chestnut beams.
The first house is divided over two floors with on the ground floor a spacious reception room with stone walls and impressive brick arches that connect the different parts of this grand room. There are terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and a large central fireplace. The room gives access to a large, eat-in kitchen with a central island, which opens out onto a covered dining terrace. There are furthermore a suite with bedroom, study and ensuite bathroom and a study (used as bedroom) with bathroom and a technical room. Also on the ground floor is a separate flat for guests or staff composed of a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The first floor can be reached by both an internal and external staircase and comprises a large sitting room with fireplace and access to a covered terrace and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. There is also a small kitchen with adjacent bathroom that used to be a bedroom and could easily be converted back.
The second house is divided into three flats. The first one is composed on the ground floor of a hallway running the entire length of the house and connecting all the rooms. Its four large windows ensure bright and sunny spaces. There are furthermore a kitchen with pantry, a dining room, a sitting room and a bedroom. Each room has access to a bathroom and has a mezzanine level with lounging, office space or walk-in wardrobe. A small private gym is situated under the terrace in front of the house and overlooks the pool.
The other two flats are smaller and each composed of a living room with kitchen corner, a bedroom and a bathroom.
The property is accessed via a cypress-lined private driveway off an asphalt road and offers ample parking space, including a shaded carport accommodating four cars. It is set in approximately 5.4 ha of land with some 400 olive trees. Verdant gardens surround the two swimming pools and include an outdoor badminton court, a free-standing greenhouse that makes a fanciful reading room, a small outbuilding that is used as laundry and changing room/office and a stunning BBQ area ideal for al fresco dining.
