Completely re-built from its ruined state in 2012, this wonderful rural real estate complex for sale in Umbria comprises two fully restored buildings each with its own swimming pool. Enchanting with love-nest potential.
Located only a few kilometres from the small village of San Leo Bastia and approximately 28 kms from the Tuscan city of Cortona, this duo of beautifully restored buildings is in a secluded, fairy tale location and surrounded by 8,000 square metres of land with a pretty stream running close by. With two separate swimming pools, the properties are ideal for rental purposes or for two sets of families or friends to share.
The main house is on two floors with an external staircase, loggia and a spacious dining terrace adjacent to the kitchen, which, along with a double reception room, is on the upper floor. The walls in the reception room are of exposed stone and an arch divides the sitting and dining areas. The open fireplace in the sitting area has been fitted with a wood-burning stove and stairs from there lead down to the ground floor where there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with tub) as well as a twin bedroom and separate bathroom with shower. The whole house has hand-made floor tiles and underfloor heating fired by separate gas boilers in separate laundry rooms, and the kitchens and all fitted furniture are all hand-made from old, limed, poplar wood.
The adorable little mill-house is set about 100 metres or so from the main house and is on three floors. The double bedroom and adjoining bathroom are on the top floor whilst the kitchen, with wood burning stove and old stone paving, is on the middle floor. Both the bedroom and the kitchen have a large semi-circular window providing light and a view of the stone-bedded stream that runs below. The ground floor sitting room, with adjacent shower room and W.C. can be used as an occasional bedroom and has a glass panel set in the floor through which the water in the mill-race can be seen.
Both houses are surrounded by mature and well-maintained gardens with a variety of sitting areas including a covered pergola adjacent to the main pool which has wooden decking and measures approximately 10 x 5 metres. The second smaller and beautifully illuminated mill pool originally contained the water that drove the mill, but is now a more glamourous structure with a Jacuzzi and splash pool. Surrounded by stone paving as well as the original retaining walls than can be up-lit for pretty evening use, it provides the finishing touch to what is a delightful little love-nest.
This property is nothing short of adorable and is perfect for low-key rentals and family use. ;
