This prestigious house is in a very evocative location in the heart of Umbria nearby Perugia. Its strategic position allows to easily reach several cities such as Assisi, Spoleto, Siena, Florence and Rome, renowned for their historical, artistic and religious importance.
The core of the estate is undoubtedly the prestigious country house that is in its centre, in a dominant position, surrounded by the land and the outbuildings, that protect it enhancing its beauty and prestige. The look of the house is due to a renown architect who, inspired by the Roman and Tuscan XVII and XVIII century style, reinvented it in an innovative way. The stone tower, that was merged with the pre-existent building, has a panoramic viewpoint from which it is possible to admire an unique and evocative view over the wonderful surrounding plain and hills up to Assisi, Perugia and the Trasimeno lake. The main building is surrounded by an Italian style garden and a park in which are placed fountains, a swimming pool, a pond for swans, a gazebo, a small amphitheatre and a well. Both areas are of considerable historical interest and offer prove of the taste of the period in which numerous plants, originally extraneous to the Umbrian region were chose to be plant, such as pines, bamboo, tassi barbassi, cedars of Lebanon, palms, citrus trees, magnolias, etc., along with others typical of the area, such as boxwood, bush with berries privet, laurel and lilac. These plants spread around their delicate smell and their perfumes gently mix with those of the limonaia, vineyard, olive grove and hazel grove which are as well part of the property. The estate also includes a farm, some farming houses, an old cellar, a stable, a greenhouse, a cowshed, a pigsty, a barn and several farmland. However, there is no doubt that the most valuable part of the property is the main building. It retains an enchanting atmosphere created by the many frescoes and decorations of medieval and classical inspiration, which enliven the walls, ceilings, lounges, billiards room, library and several bedrooms (each bedroom has an en suite bathroom). The doors of the hall are from the XVIII century, painted by the De Marchi painter from Perugia. Many rooms have precious marble fireplaces and the verandah is paved with terracotta and majolica of Deruta. The house, the farm, the annexes, the Italian garden and the surrounding park that completes the property, create a particularly historical-artistic interesting environment, as the Government Department responsible for environment, historical buildings, monuments and other treasures of Umbria declared it is, ruling therefore, to maintain intact its furnishing.
