Located 12 kilometres from the pretty market town of Umbertide, this Umbrian property for sale consists of a beautifully restored main house and an adorable ivy-covered tower requiring renovation. Or not; it's beautiful as is. With approximately2 hectares of land, a pool and a mature garden, the location is idyllic. Access is by means of a short stretch of well-maintained gravel road. The property is gated and there is ample, shady parking close to the tower which is currently used for storage purposes and has water and electricity connected and a new wooden roof. It would, with the relative permissions, be possible to convert the tower into a dwelling, adding a little bit of extra space in the form of a sun-room if required. The main house was fully restored by the current owners and is on two floors with three double bedrooms on the ground floor; one of which has an ensuite bathroom. Also on the ground floor is reception room with working fireplace and a large kitchen and dining room, with wood-burning stove, separated from each other by an arch. French doors lead from both rooms into the surrounding mature and well planted garden. A covered portico with terracotta paving is adjacent to the dining room and there plenty of other areas in which to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Also on the ground floor are a couple of handy storage areas, some large fitted cupboards, a full bathroom and additional guest bathroom. Stairs lead up to the large first floor landing. Here one finds the spacious master bedroom with a suitably spacious bathroom en suite. Door from the open onto a traditional covered loggia with stone steps leading down to the garden. This lovely home has all the traditional components that one would expect to find in a property of this type, exposed wooden beams, beautiful terracotta floor tiles, pretty iron-work, hand-made windows with double-glazing and simple, classic bathrooms. It is beautifully maintained and is a perfect family home. The lined 5 x 9 metre swimming pool sits below the house in a private and partially shaded spot. With paved surround and plenty of space for sun loungers, there is also a pergola under which to enjoy that well deserved glass of wine. The villa is not within walking distance of any amenities but the pay-off is absolute peace and tranquillity with nothing to hear but the birds and the rustling of the trees.
