In a stunning position with long reaching 360 degree views, this well restored farmhouse (190 sm circa) and annex (130 sm circa) are in an idyllic location approximately 20 minutes from the Umbrian towns of Montone and Umbertide.
The ground floor of the main house comprises a large reception and dining room, a country kitchen with access to an external eating area and a lovely sun room that enjoys views of the both the gardens and the surrounding Umbrian countryside. On the upper floor there are three bedrooms all with luxurious bathrooms.
The equally pretty annex is only a few steps away and as well as a kitchen and reception room there are two bedrooms and bathrooms that provide perfect accommodation for guests.
The buildings are totally surrounded by a beautifully maintained garden with lawns that are so thick and lush that they seem almost padded! There is a large and well-stocked orchard, a vegetable plot, an olive grove, vines and a recent plantation of various types of trees. Plentiful water is obviously a necessity and the wells (there are two of them) have no trouble in providing enough water for both the houses and the land. The swimming pool really is for swimming and the tennis court has illumination so that enthusiasts can play at all times of the day and night. Once you have tired of the water and of running around you can have a game of bocce or boules or just sit and enjoy the view, which is nothing short of magnificent.
A garage/technical room has been built into the hillside at some distance from the house and is therefore almost invisible from above. Obviously there is central heating (provided for by LPG), enough electricity to run two houses, the pool etc. and an irrigation system.
The gravel road that leads the house is in perfect condition and leads down to the paved road, in 20 minutes you can reach either the medieval hill top town of Montone or the market town of Umbertide which sits on the banks of the Tiber. The airport at Perugia is 45 minutes away and access to Rome is easy once you reach Umbertide and the E45.
This lovely, comfortable property is extremely private and peaceful; a haven for family and friends.
