Prestigious typical Umbrian farmhouse with a characteristic dovecote tower dating back to the XVII - XVIII centuries
Spoleto, recently recognised as a World Heritage Site, is a beautiful people-friendly city that entered the international scene thanks to artistic and cultural initiatives, among which the most important is, undoubtedly, the Festival of Two Worlds.
Offering numerous sites of great historical and artistic interest, this area of central Italy is an ideal destination with its fascinating religious itineraries, interesting food and wine diversity and countless ideas for regenerating outdoor activities. The city of Perugia is 60 km away, the airport S. Francesco of Assisi - 40 km and Rome with the Fiumicino airport is 130 km away.
This prestigious farmhouse dating back to the XVII-XVIII is emphasized with the architectural peculiarities of the "dovecote" tower, typical for the territory of Spoleto, ("fortified farmhouse" contains productive, residential and defensive functions in one building).
The property is spread over three levels above the ground and consists of two apartments currently connected with each other; but if necessary, can be divided.
The first-floor apartment has an area of 138 sqm and consists of a spacious living room, a dining room with fireplace, a kitchen, two bedrooms, one with en-suite bath and one common bathroom. The second-floor apartment of 157 sqm includes a large living room, a kitchen, two bathrooms and three bedrooms. On the same level, we can find a 40 sqm living room, a part of the dovecote tower, to finish. Making two new floors of the tower, it is possible to obtain two rooms, each of 40 sqm, with a breathtaking view over the valley of Spoleto.
On the ground floor, there is a beautiful covered entrance hall, a staircase which leads to the upper floors, a large living room with fireplace, a bathroom and large rooms currently used as warehouses and cellars, but convertible into residential spaces.
Next to the main building, there is a lovely dependence with a living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and an attached garage. The property includes a manicured park with tall trees and lawn equipped with automatic irrigation system, fed by a beautiful well, the same period of construction as a farmhouse.
The property, being a part of an ancient block of buildings, occupies the most exposed portion, and is totally separated from the remaining part. Between the two properties there isn't any functional or visual interference.

The farmhouse was completely renovated in 1995 and 2000 with the use of materials compatible with the original character of the building. The property is in excellent state of repair and doesn't require any interventions.

The flooring on the first and second floor is wooden, in the hall on the ground floor - tiled; the ceilings are covered in brick with chestnut beams.

The heating system is autonomous in every apartment, powered by natural gas with cast iron radiators. The entire property is fenced with electric gate.
