Description of buildings
This property is the largest portion of a tiny village built around an eleventh-century watchtower, which has been transformed over the centuries into a palace, then a small border barrack, a hunting pavilion, a horse exchange station and a dwelling for travellers headed to Perugia or for those who were crossing Italy from one sea to the other.
Even if it’s a portion of the entire property, it is a haven of privacy, thanks to the private land that surrounds it.
Today, the facility stretches over 945 sq.m. (net saleable area) and is intended for accommodation purposes. It counts 5 apartments, large communal areas, and a fully equipped kitchen where you can organize small events for 30-40 persons in the winter and 80-100 persons in the summer.
The communal living areas, kitchen, two storage rooms and one bathroom are on the ground floor of the main portion. The upper floors house 3 independent apartments:
Apartment 1 - First floor
The apartment consists of a large living room, a kitchen with a dining area, a sitting room, a study, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Apartments 2 and 3 - Second floor
Both these apartments have a kitchen/living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
On this floor, there is also an additional room with a bathroom, an independent staircase for access from the first floor, two lofts and a storage room.
The left wing of the residence houses other two apartments with an independent entrance and a technical room:
Apartment 4 - Ground floor
It consists of a living room with a kitchenette and two bedrooms, both with an en-suite bathroom.
Apartment 5 - Ground and first floor
The entrance is on the first floor, where there is a living room, a kitchenette, two bedrooms with a private bathroom and an additional bedroom with a bathroom on the ground floor (and direct access also from the outside).
The property also has three useful outbuildings (14 sq.m., 22 sq.m. and 33 sq.m. respectively), which can be used as a storage room or a warehouse, and three sheds (54 sq.m., 69 sq.m. and 98 sq.m. respectively).
State and finishing
This property was acquired by the current owners at the end of the 19th century and was an excellent agricultural company specialized in the cultivation of mulberry for silkworms. Once the fortune of autochthonous silk was over, both the palace and the tower were turned into a summer country house. Now, it’s a house and an accommodation business.
The accurate and conservative renovation has maintained the old charm of the historical residence, thanks to the traditional external finishes, artisan terracotta floors, ceilings with wooden beams, large and charming fireplaces, and internal and external solid wood fixtures.
The surrounding land of about 2 hectares (20,840 m2) includes a large garden and an orchard.
The 15x8 m swimming pool (2.40 m deep) is surrounded by tables, chairs and sunbeds, arranged to ensure everyone’s privacy.
There is also a large and shady private parking.
Use and potential uses
This offer is perfect for those who are looking for a property immersed in Umbria’s nature and want to start a profitable accommodation business. Thanks to the fact that it’s divided into apartments and is 10 minutes away from Perugia by car, this residence is the perfect solution also for multiple families that want to stay close yet maintain their privacy.
