Full description:

Restored 5 bedroom farmhouse for sale in Umbria, 1 hectare of land and a ruin to restore. Only 400 metres from the paved road and plenty of space for a pool. Flexible internal space which makes up one large home or three separate units.

In a pretty, rural location and only 400 metres off the paved road, Casa Pompeo was originally a fortified watch-tower and has now been transformed into a five bedroom property that can be used as a single family home or three separate units for rentals or as a B & B. The property has all of the wonderful original features that one would expect to see in a building of this type; exposed wooden beams, terracotta floor and ceiling tiles and, in the oldest part of the house on the ground floor, an exposed stone ceiling that is both arched and vaulted.

The first floor, the main section of the house, is accessed by means of traditional external steps that lead to a large covered portico on which there is more than ample space for dining. The front door leads to an entrance hall to the right of which is a lovely large kitchen and dining room that is absolutely perfect for socialising with family and friends. On this same level is a sitting room with fireplace (Monte Grappa closed fire system), a large study, a bedroom and a separate bathroom that also serves another adorable bedroom located in the tower on the floor above.

Stairs from the entrance hall lead down to the ground floor where there are three additional bedrooms and bathrooms as well as two small kitchens that render this area adjustable with the possibility to let it as one unit or two smaller ones. Each of the bedrooms has an easily accessible and private outside space. Also on the ground floor is a large, useful utility/storage room with a bathroom.

The surrounding 9,000 square metres of fenced gardens are well designed and planted out and, like the property, immaculately maintained with a number of shady spots in which to sit including a large terrace with barbeque and pergola and a small olive grove. An additional 1,000 square metres of land, with fig and cherry trees, is not fenced and sits below the house.

There is enough space to install a pool and the tobacco tower could be renovated used as a pool house or for further accommodation if required.

All utilities are connected including electricity and telephone with broadband internet service. As well as mains water there is a rainwater storage tank for irrigation purposes and the GPL gas tank is underground in the garden.

A meticulously maintained and convenient located property with scope for further development.
Citta di Castello is a charming, bustling town built on the Tiber with many super restaurants, bars and shops. There are two art galleries, the Pinacoteca Comunale and the Burri Collection, located in two buildings around the town. Pinacoteca Comunale located in the Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera, the town art gallery has works by Luca Signorelli (from Cortona) and Raphael. A member of the Vitelli family (who used to own the palazzo) is mentioned in Macchiavelli's book of how to succeed in politics; The Prince. The unfortunate mercenary captain is garrotted on the orders of Cesare Borgia.

If you fancy a break from medieval and Renaissance art, the Burri collection is the ideal place. Alberto Burri was born in Citta di Castello and was leading member of the Arte Povera movement, using cheap and recycled materials to create abstract works of art. The collection of 257 pieces is located in the Palazzo Albizzini in the town centre and in buildings previously used for tobacco drying, south of the town centre.
