The apartment is divided into two levels. The first level, on the second floor of the building, is 130 sq.m. divided at the present time into a kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining room and 3 bedrooms. This can be changed as there is only one master wall. The apartment could be lived in without renovation but renovation is highly recommended.
Above the apartment, reached through stairs off the kitchen, there is an attic which could be renovated to make another apartment, or additional rooms. The attic's height is 5.8 metres lending it to a mezzanine of 40 sq. m. which could be added when renovating. Off the attic is a covered terrace (24 sq.m.) with a view of the cathedral.
This property would make a lovely residence for anyone wishing to live in Italy and could be converted into a Bed and Breakfast.
Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, it has a spectacularly dramatic landscape where can be found lush green forests, rolling hills, sleepy little hill towns and peaceful valleys.
Among Umbria's most interesting towns are Orvieto, with its medieval charm and magnificent cathedral, Perugia with its cobblestone streets, Deruta just south of Perugia, considered by many to be the ceramics capital of Italy, Todi a beautiful medieval town, Assisi still as peaceful as when St. Francis lived there and Gubbio, the beautifully preserved hill town that pre-dates the Etruscan.
The city of Orvieto stands on a rocky outcrop in the centre of a green valley. A medieval city, extremely charming, rich in art and very impressive. The landscape, the architecture, the cathedral, the old town, the well of Saint Patrick, local crafts, a city not to be missed. It is also a city full of events … to name just one, for fans of good music and jazz, the Umbria winter jazz festival.
