Close to the borders of Tuscany with Umbria and the Marche, this property enjoys a near perfect situation with an outstanding view of the Tiber Valley and the hills beyond as far as the Catanaia. Situated in an elevated position 600 metres up on the West side of the Apennine hills, the house is surrounded by woods and pastures sloping down to a river below offering a tranquil, rural idly.
The house itself, built of stone with a tiled roof, has been restored simply and with sensitivity, with respect to the original style and materials including the terracotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings, plain walls and shuttered windows.
Included in the property is a 3 storey barn perfect for renovation. The floor and roofing timbers, tie bars and roof tiles have been completely replaced.
Ground Floor: A cool north facing kitchen; dining room (originally the stable and retaining the hay rack and feeding trough) with French windows that open onto both the south west facing terrace and garden; a main room stretching from front to back of the house also opening onto the terrace and featuring an original arch and a large fireplace. Bathrooms and toilets are available in a single storey extension at ground floor level. The extension also includes a workshop that has internal and external access.
First and Second Floors: The first floor comprises three spacious bedrooms and the original kitchen with its fireplace, that is now used as an extra living room. The second floor consists of four large bedrooms under the sloping main roof of the house.
Drinking water is piped direct from a reliable stream approximately 1Km away and waste water is to a septic tank at the rear of the property. Gas for cookers and water heaters is supplied by an on-site propane tank.
The property is reached from the public road by a 1.5km farm track which continues up the hill behind the house a further kilometre to two more properties and thence on up to the Passo di Viamaggio.
