About this property
Beautifully maintained Umbrian ESTATE FOR SALE in the Niccone valley with main house, COTTAGE, LARGE HEATED POOL and 12 HECTARES of land.
We are extremely excited to offer this unique and very rare opportunity to acquire a fabulous estate in the Niccone Valley. It is also possible to purchase the whole estate with buildings, swimming pool complex and 136 hectares of private grounds and gardens for an additional ??800,000.
The property is set in a commanding, elevated and tranquil position with stunning views over the Niccone Valley and further afield to the Apennines. Access is via a gravel road and gated entrance. The principle building of approximately 267 sqm comprises of two receptions, four bedrooms, all en suite (one on the ground floor), shaker style kitchen and dining room, study, terrace, mural staircase and original terracotta floors. This building has been lovingly maintained and flows as a family home with many areas in which to escape but with the feeling of family unity within its walls. Several doors lead outside to terraces and the views in all directions are breathtaking.
Near to the principle building is an independent guesthouse. The building has lovely large double doors and an open plan living area on the ground floor. Stairs lead to two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en suite. This is an ideal accommodation for older children or guests as although close to the principle house the guesthouse is totally autonomous.
Within the grounds secret pathways lead in all directions. Along these one can find ideal private areas to relax, meditate or just escape in a great book. Several of these meander directly to the most beautiful and probably the biggest outdoor pool in the valley. Changing rooms, toilets and storage areas are all accessible nearby.
For an additional ??800,000 it would be possible to purchase the whole San Bucaia estate which consists of the following;
98 hectares of woodland
19 hectares of arable land
6.87 hectares of olive groves with 3,000 trees
3 hectares of chestnut woods
1 hectare of meadows
The owners of San Bucaia have continued to purchase land and woodlands since they first made the initial investment to buy the principle residence and restore it. To date they have successfully planted 3,000 olive trees which produce in excess of 8,000 litres of olive oil per year. There is an excellent opportunity to increase this production further by planting further olive groves, subject to the necessary permissions and in a way in which harvesting can be mechanised, in the 19 hectares of arable land. The land and woods are well maintained and also offer a variety of mushrooms, truffles and chestnuts.
In summary, it is a privilege and a pleasure to represent the owners and we are sure that any potential purchaser will not be disappointed with not only its private physical position but also the love and attention to detail to the houses and grounds bestowed over 40 years of occupation.
