- Swimming pool
- Olive grove
A rare opportunity to acquire this fantastic property which is gated and fenced making it totally private. The Mediterranean garden with its large olive grove, a vineyard and grounds that include 600 umbrella pine trees constitute this beautiful place. This house is located in the hills of Umbria, on the border with Tuscany, south-east facing, and is situated just above the village of Lugnano. The villa, that was built in 1890 on a rock mass, has been fully restored by its current owner with the addition of a swimming pool, 16x4 m, finished in travertine stone and marble interior steps making it feel like a Roman bath. The internal space measures approx 300 SQ meters over three levels. The main entrance opens into a large living room and study, leading to two double bedrooms with bathrooms and balconies. From this level the stairs lead up to the top floor where there are three double bedrooms and one bathroom, and down to the ground floor which comprises a large kitchen, pantry, cantina, dining room and living room. The kitchen leads to a large portico with open fireplace and stone sink, making it a perfect environment to eat "al fresco". The terraces that surround the portico lead down to the swimming pool which sits nestled in amongst the olive grove. There are over 160 olive trees which produce an average of over 220 litres of excellent Umbrian olive oil every year. The property includes electric entrance gates, well, gas central heating, telephone and wi-fi. In a quiet and private position, the villa enjoys a splendid view from the hills of the upper Tiber Valley and at the same time is in easy reach of the major centres such as Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Florence and Siena. Perugia Airport is only 35 km away. The local towns include Città di Castello and Montone, both in Umbria, and Cortona in Tuscany.
