Unique cottage amid an olive grove in the hills between Umbertide and Gubbio in Umbria
This property requires a slightly more detailed description, as it represents a special and somewhat unusual situation. It is a building surrounded by a very well-kept olive grove, in a very beautiful panoramic position facing southwest in the popular hills between Gubbio and Umbertide. The fenced plot includes a very well-kept olive grove (about 1 ha), but only part of it is for sale. The reason for this is that the seller, an olive oil producer, wishes to continue harvesting the olives. The future buyer of the property can use the olive grove and move freely on it and also receives a contractual right of use for it. Of course, there is also a private portion of about 2,000 m² around the house with its own driveway. This is a somewhat idiosyncratic constellation, but on closer inspection also interesting, insofar as the olive grove is maintained all year round, but does not require any effort of its own. The house was built in 2005 and is primarily used for working the olives and is also equipped with a kitchen and a bathroom. The whole living space is on ground level and the high rooms also give the possibility to gain further living space, e.g. with galleries. The layout of the U-shaped building is currently such that on one side there is a large eat-in kitchen with fireplace and dining room, in the middle part there is a living room, and in the second part there is a bathroom with shower as well as a room (possibly usable as a bedroom), which is currently used for the storage of the olives and the appliances. However, the house can also be used completely as living space, but only as a holiday home; use as an official first residence is not permitted until July 2023. Only a heating system should be installed if needed, hot water is currently obtained via an electric boiler. The high rooms also allow, and if required, to equip the house with underfloor heating. The numerous windows and sliding doors give the house very bright rooms and a certain flair of a "loft" . The house is connected to the municipal water system. This property is very interesting for those who want to create a very nice and bright home or holiday home with little effort and the immaculate structure requires no work but only the interior finishing. The price speaks for itself. Distances: Umbertide can be reached in just a few minutes (13 km) and offers a complete infrastructure. The popular medieval town of Gubbio is 19 km away. Perugia is 40 km away (airport), Florence 150 km, and the Adriatic coast 100 km.
