Former stone built dwelling in northern Umbria close to the Tuscan border requiring complete restoration. Situated ontwo hectares of land and surrounded by woodland at an altitude of approximately 500m a.S.L. The property offers total privacy and magnificent views over the Niccone Valley.
The nearest village (Preggio) is a ten minute drive from the property with both Lake Trasimeno and Cortona a further twenty minutes away. To describe the building as a ruin is no exaggeration. Any hint of a roof is long gone; the occasional opening that once would have been a door or window is still discernible, but it would be kinder to consider what is there as a source of building materials awaiting a new life.
Whoever has the vision to acquire Casa Nascosta will be securing one of the last available unrestored buildings in the area in what can only be described as an idyllic location. The approach is via a forest road which snakes it's way through chestnut and oak woods for approx 1 km before reaching an area of maintained grassland leading gently uphill to the ruin.
The two hectares of land upon which it sits is given over to mixed woodland and garden which perch high over the Niccone Valley and afford wonderful, far-reaching views. The property is surrounded by church owned land on which there is no likelihood of any sort of construction in the future. The nearest neighbours, apart from deer and numerous squirrels, are a good kilometre away which allows for the sense of privacy and serenity to be maintained. The footprint of the building is sufficiently large to afford the possibility of creating a four bedroomed house, together with external space for terraces and a swimming pool without compromising the beauty of the natural surroundings.
It is said that the camera never lies, but equally, the camera cannot be expected to capture the full splendour and potential of this hidden gem. A personal viewing is very highly recommended.
