Real estate for sale - Country houses
Unique property composed of a former church and vicarage, situated amidst a lush garden with pool
This unique Italian property for sale is situated in a fabulous panoramic position in northern Umbria near the border with Tuscany and Lago Trasimeno, within a private gated estate of some 120 ha at the head of the Pian di Nese Valley. The estate comprises a total of six former farmhouses and a castle all of which have been lovingly restored into luxury homes. Although part of the estate, each house, so also this Antica Canonica, has its own land and has no close neighbours, yet enjoys the assurance of being part of a fenced-in, managed estate. The current owners have restored the property meticulously, preserving its original character and details while implementing a high level of living comfort, using quality materials and modern architectural features. The result is an original country residence of great class. The ground floor comprises a large kitchen with access to a spacious terrace with breathtaking views and a lounge with double sided fireplace towards the large living room. The lounge opens to the former church, which has been transformed into a beautiful versatile living area with gallery. The first floor features a master suite with fireplace, en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower, a fully fitted wardrobe, as well as storage space under the stairs. The lower ground level consists of a library/study, three bedrooms with garden access, wine cellar, laundry room, two bathrooms, and a utility room. An annexe building is currently used as additional accommodation for guests with a kitchen/living room, two bedrooms, bathroom, storage room, and a terrace. A double garage is also part of the property. The approx. 7 hectares of land comprise a vegetable garden, orchard, some 80 olive trees, various mature trees (cypress trees, pine trees), and woodland. The garden around the house and pool is a feast for the eye with a variety of flowers, herbs, shrubs, and several relaxation areas.
