Access to this prestigious historic villa for sale in the stunning and green Umbrian countryside, is via two private entrances, closed by important and imposing gates; the avenue of access to the villa is lined with a double row of cypress trees; truly beautiful, prestigious and evocative.
The manor villa likely dates back to the XVII century, with clean harmonious architectural lines. “Il Poggiolo” is of a rectangular shape, extending mainly east-west, and enriched with large terraces orientated to view towards the East and as such beautiful Assisi is the backdrop, in the distance.
The villa is surrounded by a garden with tall trees above and downwards by a terraced garden (east side), with numerous steps and porches of exquisite workmanship; the whole property is dotted with statues, ancient columns and several sculptures.
“Il Poggiolo” is in excellent condition both interiorly and externally; the villa is spread over 3 floors, including the attic, in addition to wineries, cellars and other rooms in the basement.
The main entrance is on the west side of the manor, where there is an important entrance, which is accessed by an evocative external stone staircase; from here one can enter the manors entrance, fully tiled in marble. Much of the ground floor is devoted to living areas, with large living rooms with fireplaces, dining room and kitchen with frescoes, as well as rooms used as study / bedroom, 2 bathrooms and important external loggias leading to the park.
The sleeping area (5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms) is located on the first floor, which also houses other rooms, designated for ulterior uses such as: a library, billiard room and screening room, as well as the stairs.
In the attic there are several rooms yet to be finished, as well as a studio apartment for guests.
The basement houses utility rooms, cellars and storage rooms, as well as an underground church now desecrated.
A short drive from the villa, on the south side, is a rectangular building that once housed the stables and has since been repurposed as a limonaia, in good condition.
On the west side rises a two storey building, once used as a caretaker's house, in fairly good structural condition but which needs interior work and a new roof.
On the east side of the estate, not far from the entrance gate located to the south-east, is a group of buildings probably dating back to the nineteenth century.
Here is a plastered villa on three levels, dedicated to residential use (Poggiolo 1), fully and beautifully refurbished, in adherence to an old tobacco dryer recovered for residential purposes and with various outbuildings and ancillary rooms.
The ground floor comprises a double living room, dining room and kitchen, developed as a large open space with clean lines. “Il Poggiolo 1” is home to a prestigious music room with open loft. Adjacent is a large gym and a laundry room. On the same level there is also a spacious garage.
The first and second floor boast 5 bedrooms, 1 study/bedroom and 4 bathrooms (of which 3 are ensuite bathrooms). The view down the valley of Assisi makes this an incredibly scenic location. At a short distance is an outdoor swimming pool, and a large garden so well cared for it could be British.
In addition to the villa Il Poggiolo 1, there are 3 large stone buildings for agricultural use, office use and in part for residential purposes, on which routine maintenance and repairs are needed, yet they are all in pretty good structural condition. A lovely old wine cellar with antique wine barrels unites the restored property to those in need of some works. A series of storage rooms on the ground floor of those buildings are perfect to meet the needs of the farming activity.
The remaining part of the estate is spread to the north, with farmland mainly oriented towards winemaking and olive groves, climbing gently towards the top of the hill, with a supremely panoramic view.
Upon this higher portion of the estate, are 4 houses to be fully restored; each of which is placed into a highly scenic location.
