Full description:

This marvellous property is located at the crossroads of upper Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany, in an area steeped in history and art. It is in the famous Calanchi Park, in front of CivitÓ di Bagnoregio, the 'dying city', 20 km from Orvieto, just one hour from Rome and one and half hours from Florence and is easily reached from the A1 motorway.

Built on the foundations of an ancient Roman watch tower, the main building of this grand property was built in two stages, the first part in 850 a.d. (including the tower) and the second part in the XIIth century.
In the medieval era this building was used as a military post, overlooking the valley. In time it was transformed into a mansion and a small private chapel was added along with a large farmhouse (approx. 500 sq.m. - not renovated) divided into stables and apartments for the workers.

Set in two hectares of mature park land, an avenue of about 150 m. opens up into a square in front of the manor house (approx.. 1,400 sq.m.). The manor has been completely renovated keeping as many of the original features as possible and using carefully sourced materials from the appropriate era. Planning permission to build a swimming pool has been obtained and work has started.

On the ground floor there is a large entrance hall, two winter garden rooms, a large double reception, a guest powder room, a TV room, a double dining room, a kitchen and a larder. There is also a small wine cellar where original medieval urns are still visible and two small storerooms. A space has also been created for a lift which will go up to the third floor.

The second floor has four double bedrooms each one with its own ensuite bathroom. A reception room, a library, a small laundry room and two terraces.

The third floor has a large reception room being used as a study, three further double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two store rooms, a billiard room, a small sitting area, and in the tower a reception room with a splendid view over the valley. From this room going up the antique stone stairway a mezzanine is reached and a terrace looking over the grounds and the valley.

Around the manor are two terraces totalling approximately 250 sq.m.

In addition to the above there is a 400 sq.m. farmhouse to restore, 15 hectare of woodland and olive groves (about 600 trees), a vegetable plot (400 sq.m.) with its own spring and a small greenhouse. There are also 4 caves dug out of the rock, one of which was the old mill, and the largest where it is still possible to see the old cellar casks.

The manor house has 6 GPL boilers, two for each floor, for heating along with 2 antique wood burners in terracotta and 6 antique fireplaces. All the doors in the home are antique as are the wooden ceilings and terracotta ceiling tiles. Fitted wardrobes have been made using original sixteenth and seventeenth century cupboards.

The floor covering of the ground floor is nearly all basaltine stone, except for the TV room, the larder and bathroom which are in terracotta and one of the winter garden room's which is in cobble stones. The second floor, which also has the master bedroom, has antique parquet floors with the bathroom floors in stone. The third floor and the tower has a mixture of the above-mentioned floorings.

This property has a lot of potential, it would be a wonderful family residence or a boutique hotel or relais.

The area is very popular with tourists from northern Europe, it is full of historic sites to visit from Etruscans tombs to Roman amphitheatres, from medieval castles to renaissance churches. It is also conveniently placed for trips into Tuscany and Lazio and of course Florence and Rome.

The property is in a strategic position for visiting historical and cultural sites, being on the borders of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria. Lake Bolsena and the thermal baths of Viterbo, San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagni San Filippo, Bagno Vignoni and Saturnia can be reached easily, the nearest in about 20 minutes, the furthest about one and a half hours and Orvieto is just 10 minutes drive away.

This area is famous the world over for its traditional cooking and for its many music, wine and food festivals, carnivals and religious festivals.
