ITALY, UMBRIA, PERUGIA, CASTIGLIONE DEL LAGO
Renovated 17th century stone house with two bedrooms and garden, near Castiglione del Lago, Umbria.
Within walking distance of Villastrada, on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, just 3 km from Lake Chiusi and 7 km from Lake Trasimeno, nestled on a gentle hillside, the house, along with the ancient church there beside it (not for sale), is part of an ancient monastic settlement dating back to the 17th century.
The view over the hills to the horizon, is breathtaking.
Arranged on two levels with stone and terracotta brick exterior, it was completely renovated in 2014 using traditional materials and preserving the rustic character of local country houses with brick arches, chestnut windows, and stairs and terraces covered in handmade terracotta.
The main entrance on the ground floor opens onto a living room with a fireplace positioned in one corner; to the left is a bright built-in kitchen with a dining area and access to the highlight of the house – a panoramic terrace with a hand-forged wrought iron pergola, ideal for enjoying sunsets and al fresco dining.
To the right of the living room is a bedroom/study and a bathroom.
Upstairs is a double bedroom with built-in closet and a bathroom with a window and shower.
The garden is partly fenced, and gated for car access. A ready-to-live in country home in rustic style, an ideal retreat in the quietness of the countryside, ideal either as a home or short tourist rentals.
