In Umbria, a few km from the historic centre of Città di Castello, on a hilly and very panoramic position, farm estate consisting of an old manor house, a barn, a pool and land.
The position of the property is climatically privileged: Pleasantly breezy and sunny all year around; it is suitable both for olive trees, which are all around the hill, and for the vineyard. The panoramic view is stunning and the landscape is unspoiled.
The property, only 4 km away from all services, can be reached through an asphalted road, only the last 400 m are of white road.
In Città di Castello, the most important and populated town in the Umbrian Upper Tiber Valley, there are amenities, schools, restaurants, supermarkets and a hospital; numerous events, exhibitions and festivals take place here every year. Thanks to its strategic position, it takes a short time to reach both important tourist towns such as Arezzo, Cortona Gubbio, Assisi and some of the Borghi più belli d’Italia (the most beautiful villages in Italy) like Citerna, Anghiari and Montone. Moreover, through the dual carriageway E45 Orte-Cesena you can reach in less than one hour both Perugia and the Umbria International Airport.
The property is made up of a manor house and a barn in need of renovation.
The manor house, an important square farmhouse, has a surface of 450 square metres and is laid out on three levels, each of 150 sqm.
On the ground floor there are some storage rooms, a technical room, a cellar and the manger of the old barn. In the oldest part the ceiling is beamed, while in the other one the ceiling is vaulted.

It is possible to keep the current size of the rooms or divide them adding mezzanine floors, create other bedrooms or an independent apartment.
