Full description:

An absolutely adorable two bedroom property for sale in Umbria neatly tucked into the village of Civitella d'Agliano.

This unique townhouse has been beautifully restored by the current owner. The underground grotto, currently used as a formal dining and reception room, dates back to Etruscan times. The grotto is separate to the main body of the property but, with a relevant building permission, could be connected to it with a spiral staircase. As there is already a little guest w.c. on this level it would be possible to transform the space into a third bedroom with a bathroom en suite if need be.
On the floor above; the ground floor, there is a kitchen/dining room and a sitting room as well as a guest w.c. Stairs lead up to a second sitting room and two bedrooms; one of which has a bathroom with a shower whilst the second has a tub located on a gallery above the bedroom itself.
With large windows and wonderful views this unusual property is located in Civitella D'Agliano; one of central Italy's best-kept secrets. Founded 3,000 years ago by the Etruscans, it was occupied by the Romans and altered in the middle ages but virtually nothing has happened there since.
The old, walled village is a maze of cobbled alleyways and steps huddled at the edge of a steep bluff; it overlooks the Tiber valley which is entirely agricultural in this area and dotted with the limestone cliffs known as 'calanche.' No cars are permitted within the village but all essentials are within walking distance just beyond the village walls where there is a grocer, a butcher, a post office, a pharmacy as well as a handful of simple but good restaurants and bars.
Winding roads lead from the village to key sights in both Lazio and Umbria within 30 minute drive or less: the gardens of the Villa Lante, the Monsters Park at Bomarzo and picture-perfect Lake Bolsena in the former, and Orvieto with its gorgeous cathedral and vineyards in the latter.
