Beautifully restored Umbrian farmhouse for sale with enviable south facing views of the Niccone valley has been home to its current residents for 15 years. Their dedication is evident in the finish of the house and the pristine condition of the gardens and land that surround the house. Many original architectural features were maintained during the careful restoration, including a stunning stone fireplace in the ground floor living room.
The house was originally laid out in order to undertake a rental business, which was run with great success for many years. The main house contains a total of 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, as well as 2 kitchens and 2 living rooms, which allows versatile use of the property depending on the size of rental groups. The property can equally well be used as a large family home of course. A huge, half-moon window in the first floor dining room, with those big south facing views, is just one of the many great features of this property. In addition to the 6 bedrooms in the main house, there is a small, two storey annex attached to the back of the property, consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
As well as having great accommodation, the property is also something of a smallholding. Its 1.5Ha contain 170 olive trees and a variety of vines, including Sangiovese, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, Trebbiano and Grecchetto. Yields are approx 100lts of oil, 300lts of red wine and 150lts of white.
Easily accessible from the Niccone Valley, the property is about 10 minutes from Mercatale di Cortona, with all necessary facilities, and around 20 minutes to Umbertide.
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.
