Finely restored 5 bedroom farmhouse with solar and photovoltaic panels, olive grove and orchard for sale near Città della Pieve, Umbria.
A cypress-lined avenue leads to this top spot location on the Umbrian border with Tuscany, close to both Lake Trasimeno and Città della Pieve, and an open and spectacular panorama.
The stone farmhouse, built on two levels, has been recently renovated and fitted with solar panels, double-glazed wooden windows along with mosquito nets, handmade terracotta floors, bathrooms with double stone sinks.
On the ground floor a spacious open-plan living area hosts a sitting room with a fireplace, a dining area and a fully fitted country-style kitchen with travertine countertops and central island.
A home office, a hobby room, a guest bathroom, laundry room and storeroom complete the ground floor.
On the second floor, a covered loggia becomes a delightful nook for relaxing, while a spacious living room with bookshelves, double windows and a cast-iron stove opens on to the bedrooms: a generous main bedroom with closets and private bathroom, two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, two additional bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The two hectares of land surrounding the house consist of an olive grove with some 50 trees, an orchard with apricot, cherry, pear, fig, walnut, almond and plum trees, and a lawn perfect for building a swimming pool.
An annex, once used as a pigsty, has been restored for storage use and can be converted into a guest house.
A ‘Belvedere’ deck has been created in a corner of the garden to relax and soak in the infinite view dominating the property.
For more than a century, since the second half of the 1800s, it was owned by a family of marquises as an agricultural and hunting estate; today is used both as a private residence and as a vacation home to host tourists.
