ITALY, UMBRIA, PERUGIA, MAGIONE
Incredible apartment located in the crypt of a 10th century Benedictine castle with a view of Lake Trasimeno.
The apartment for sale measures over 100 sqm and is on 3 floors, with a large living room, kitchen, bedroom, (a second bedroom is possible), bathroom.
Shared grounds, pool and tennis court. Stunning view.
Lake Trasimeno in Umbria is an area made of ancient everlasting harmonies of colours, lights, breezes and perfumes: never too invading, even when exciting both spirit and senses.
In this splendid context you will find this enchanting castle in the middle of a park of ancient olive trees. Going back about one thousand years, the castle started its long life as an olive oriented Benedectine monastery, later it turned into a guards garrison, much later it became a walled farm and recently it was just a hamlet hosting a limited number of peasant families.
Today, thanks to the genius and achievement of architect Nicola De Menna, it has been loving and scrupulously restored to reassume its early look, character and vitality, thus once again a place of picturesque beauty.
In this context, where the architect has even managed to include a panoramic swimming pool and a tennis court, both absolutely harmonious with the medieval buildings and the surrounding Umbrian countryside, is this magnificent ‘apartment’ for sale.
Incidentally, both the apartment and the rest of the castle are subject to the strict Cultural and Environmental Preservation state bylaws – the creative restoration has been easily awarded top grades.
Located on a hill to the south of Lake Trasimeno, it is easily reached within 30 minutes from two exits of the A1 motorway: Fabro and Chiusi.
By train from Chiusi Scalo and then rent a car or take a country
The nearest airport is Perugia Sant’Egidio, otherwise Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport, then by car or by train and bus.
The castle is practically located in the very centre of the most beautiful medieval renaissance and baroque cities of central Italy: Florence, Rome, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, all relatively close and very easy to reach.
But there are also Todi, Assisi, Cortona, Panicale, Castiglione del Lago, Città della Pieve and many
others towns and sites, all worth visiting either for their natural and architectural beauty, their museums and monuments, but also their markets and their traditional restaurant serving excellent local wines and wonderful food.
A unique property! The price is negotiable.
