Historic stone house with garden and panoramic views, once part of a 13th century monastery
This well restored stone house for sale was once part of a 13th century monastery and is situated in the centre of a medieval hamlet in Umbria. The massive house was built in 1623 on Roman foundations and offers a magnificent view of the beautiful Umbrian countryside. The building was completely restored in 1991, preserving the original beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, antique doors, marble and stone details and antique fireplaces. In 2006, the property was again tastefully modernised and offers all modern comforts. The living area of the house (approx. 310 m²) extends over three levels, the fourth level is an impressive vaulted cellar, which served as a wine storage. A private garden with a small pool is also part of the property, which offers a magnificent panoramic view over the roofs of the hamlet and the countryside.

The ground floor offers an independent guest apartment with its own entrance and direct access to the garden, two bedrooms, a living room with fireplace and staircase to the first floor, a bathroom with shower, a fully equipped kitchen and a storage room with access to the late Roman vaulted cellar.
