This former watch tower from the 14th century near Lake Trasimeno, Umbria, was meticulously restored by its current owners, to make it a cozy and luxurious dwelling.

With its 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, this historic residence (about 404 sq.m.) is a perfect private home for a family, thanks also to its large and mature garden. The proximity to Lake Trasimeno makes the climate mild and the days by the pool incredibly pleasant.

The Main Building

Over the centuries the upper part of the tower has been dismantled and turned into a residential building with additions over time to create an architecturally interesting house on a number of levels – and each one with a story to tell.

The latest restoration works were carried out with original materials to create an authentic and rustic feel but with all the comforts of modern living.

Ground Floor:

The beautiful arched entrance leads to the almost 40 sq.m. open-plan kitchen and dining area with a stone fireplace, Ilve stove and Francesco di Maio hand painted tiles. The kitchen forms the central hub of this exceptional property. The ground floor comprises also a pantry, guest toilet, double studio/office – which can be used as a small bedroom/living room – large guest apartment with bedroom, bathroom and sitting area with kitchenette and access to a wisteria covered terrace as well as to an orangery.

First Floor:

The first floor offers a living room with fireplace, which can be accessed from the external staircase, library, walk-in closet, and a master bedroom with fireplace and exit out to a private, panoramic terrace.

Second Floor:

The second floor features an attic room.

Currently some rooms in the house are used as library and studios but could easily be converted into bedrooms, as to maximise the number of beds for your friends or for holiday lets.

The Annexes

This lovely property in Umbria features a number of outbuildings: the former lemon house turned out to be a fantastic (25 sq.m.) and very bright space for reading; near the swimming pool there is the changing room with setting to make a sauna. Also, further away from the pool there are the technical rooms.

The Garden

The mature garden develops over an area of 5.000 sq.m. and has been designed with great care and good taste: roses and herb bushes, shrubs and cypresses, a wonderful wisteria plant decorates the south facade of the house. An archway of flowers leads to the 14x6m swimming pool with solarium and with a breathtaking view over the Umbrian hills.

The covered pergola is the perfect outdoor spot for your dinners out and it can accommodate up to 14 people.

From all corners of the garden you can enjoy amazing views.

The Location

The position of this beautiful property is exceptional: panoramic and very close to Lake Trasimeno. This allows you to have privacy, tranquility and at the same time to enjoy the mild climate typical of houses near the water.

Passignano sul Trasimeno is a quiet town, which comes alive in the summer, where you can enjoy pleasant walks by the lake. The town is well connected and in a few minutes by car you can reach Perugia, Umbertide, Cortona and many other places of historical and cultural interest.
