Perugia Villa with Annex, Pool and Grounds
Perugia Villa. This magnificent villa is located on a hill around 13 km from Perugia and 3 km from Corciano. The Tuscan border is 20km away, making the property accessible to some of the most famous and interesting historic centres of both regions such as Assisi, Spello, Cortona, Montepulciano, Chianciano Terme, Arezzo and Spoleto. Lake Trasimeno and its surrounding villages is just 8 km away. The nearest airport is Perugia, less than half an hour’s drive. The airports of Florence and Rome can be reached in 2 hours.
The property comprises a large, 4 storey villa of 808 sqm with an ancient Renaissance tower of 108 sqm. The buildings are surrounded by a luxurious garden measuring over 1.2 hectares, designed by the famous landscape architect Pietro Porcinai, with winter garden, pool, small lake and tennis court.
The villa dates from the 18th century, has been completely refurbished and is in excellent condition. Its exposed stonework exterior is adorned with climbing rose and jasmine. Inside there are tiled floors in the living areas, parquet flooring in the sleeping areas and ceilings with antique wooden beams. The watchtower, dating from the Renaissance, is covered in Virginia creeper. This building has also been restored and is in great condition, with traditional interiors featuring tiled floors and wooden ceilings. All the bedrooms (in both the villa and the tower) have air conditioning.
One of the villa’s best features is undoubtedly the large grounds that surround the property. Designed and built by the famous landscaper Pietro Porcinai, the grounds completely embody the architect’s design philosophy with unique detail, such as the path to the house and the grounds which provides a genuinely surprising view of the garden and the surrounding scenery. The outdoor spaces are split into separate areas with different themes. On one side of the garden there is a large lawn bordered with shrubs and plants typical of the Mediterranean, with fruit and olive trees, while on the other side, Porcinai created a lush winter garden which can be closed thanks to its large, sliding glass doors and which houses a wide variety of tropical plants and a swimming pool, half of which is inside. A wooden boardwalk leads from the winter garden to a small lake rich in cultivated water plants and then to a private area with heated Jacuzzi. On the right side of the villa, next to the kitchen, there is a panoramic area overlooking the picturesque village of Corciano, the tennis court and the olive grove which can be accessed by a third entrance.
