This Umbrian farmhouse is located in a panoramic position not far from the Niccone Valley and close to the Tuscany border. It is only a short drive to the villages of San Leo Bastia and Spedalicchio. The large house has been nicely restored and offers all modern comforts alongside plenty of original features. On three floors, the house features an independent one bedroom apartment on part of the ground floor whilst the remainder of the building has four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The larger section of the house is cleverly and seamlessly divisible; by simply closing a door or two a separate, extra apartment can temporarily be created if need be. The original external staircase provides access to a large living room with central stone fireplace, an adjacent open-plan dining room/kitchen, plus a bedroom and bathroom on the same floor. The top floor has a second bedroom and bathroom, plus a large loft area that is used as a study but which could provide a further bedroom. Adjacent to the living room is the area that could be closed off; here there are two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a large open plan kitchen, dining and living room.
The one-bedroom apartment is on the ground floor and is completely independent from the main part of the house. This is a very comfortable with cosy living room with wood burning stove, a kitchen and a double bedroom with bathroom. Also on the ground floor at the back of the house are 2 sizeable cantina rooms, used as storage areas.
Part of the 3 hectares of land has been well landscaped, providing lots of areas of outside dining and making the best of the elevated position and views. In front of the house is the pool area, with attractive stone surround and stone retaining walls. Adjacent to the pool is an outbuilding of around 50sqm; this has beautiful original stonework and would be ideal for conversion into a guesthouse.
The Niccone Valley is where Tuscany meets Umbria. The northern valley is mainly in Tuscany, topped by five ancient castles or fortified villages; all standing opposite their Umbrian counterparts that lie on the hills of the southern valley and all built over a 1,000 year period of Papal and Renaissance history. Today, the 11 miles of the Niccone valley, which includes the Val di Pierle, is dotted with restored private farmhouses, luxury villas and apartments, all popular with discerning visitors. The villages of Lisciano Niccone - Umbria - and Mercatale di Cortona - Tuscany sit at the western most extreme of this wide valley.
