Full description:

VILLA Smeraldo' is located in the municipality of Lisciano Niccone, in the natural terraced hillside above Lake Trasimeno at Tuoro. The property is situated about 6 km away from the centre of Tuoro sul Trasimeno (10 minutes away) and 48 km from Perugia's international 'San Francesco' di Sant'Egidio airport, about 200 km from Pisa airport, and about 230 km from Rome airport. There is an excellent rail link at Terontola-Cortona train station (about 16km away). From here Florence can be reached within the hour, Rome in an hour and a half and Milan in 3 hours. The Villa is 30 minutes from Cortona, 45 minutes from Perugia, 1 hour 20 minutes from Siena and an hour from Arezzo. 'Gosparini' is a place renowned for hosting VIPs from all around the world due to its natural beauty and unique views that capture the whole of Lake Trasimeno.

'Villa Smeraldo' was built about 6 years ago with the architect and builder working to the highest quality standards. The builder had already decided to retire after 50 years of continuous work but due to the client's request, as well as the beauty and prestigious nature of the project, he decided to do one last build.
Local materials such as stone, tile and wood were used to their greatest effect in a modern style within the Tuscan/Umbrian tradition. The villa is currently used for holiday rentals as well as being featured in the most prestigious architectural magazines.

The prestigious villa has a total gross area of about 500 sqm. The semi basement floor has two double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings with original large 'patch work' decorated bricks. There is an antique handmade terracotta tiled floor as well as two bathrooms. The one for the bedroom has a bath and shower and is completely decorated with a 'Home Sweet Home' mosaic. The other bathroom has a shower and unique tiles that cover the height of 1.50 metres. There is another bedroom/study, as well as a laundry area and a large stone staircase that goes to the top floor.
Continuing with the semi basement, but outside the villa's perimeter, is a bathroom with shower that serves the swimming pool and Jacuzzi area as well as a utility/technical room, storage area and wine cellar.

The internal staircase takes you to the top floor where there is a spacious living room divided by an arch and fireplace, a dining area with access to a covered loggia enclosed on three sides. Here, you will find a table where unforgettable candlelight dinners are matched by the unique views of Lake Trasimeno and the swimming pool. On the other side there is a modern kitchen, with an induction cooker, integrated granite 'Black Infinity' brushed and polished worktops as well as a useful and conveniently located pantry. There is reclaimed tiled flooring from the ancient rectory, and traditional Tuscan/Umbrian chestnut beamed ceilings with handmade terracotta tiles. There is innovative lighting which is positioned to create a warmer, more personal, atmosphere that breathes life throughout the villa.

The staircase leads to the 'master bedroom'. Here there is a pitched roof and a French window that opens onto the villa's highest balcony which gives a truly breathtaking view!! The bathroom is truly beautiful with its simple lines and rich refined materials. There is even pure gold mosaic design in the shower area that emits an almost radiant shine.

'Villa Smeraldo' uses a geothermal pump for heating and air conditioning in the summer. There is a good energy consumption to cost ratio with 'underfloor' heating and a moisture extraction system.
Particular attention has been paid to the villa's exterior where the swimming pool is the main focal point. This has been designed with integrated metal mosaic and throughout the day creates a unique array of intense reflections of blue, gold, sky blue and grey depending on the light and night conditions. The swimming pool is 14ml x 5ml in size and comes complete with electric shutters. There is also a convenient and very private solarium area.
The design for the swimming pool has also been used for the Jacuzzi which also has electric shutters. It has been designed primarily to have a comfortable seating area with benches for relaxing. Being heated, of course, means that it can be used all year round, even when it's snowing!

There is a completely fenced in garden area of about 2,450 square metres around the villa as well as an electric gate. The remaining land is natural forest. The land totals over 5000 square metres.

Villa Smeraldo has an alarm 'care-taker' system. The Villa is also used, on occasion, for rentals which can generate a useful income.

State of repair
The prestigious Villa Smeraldo is in perfect condition. There are walnut wooden window and doors which are in perfect working order. The same can also be said of the hot water geothermal pump system.

All utilities are present at the property. Water is from the mains aqueduct while the drains, electricity and ADSL (internet) are all connected.

Land registry details
The property and its land are registered with the N.C.E.U. and N.C.T. respectively for the municipality of Lisciano Niccone.

Ownership Details/Contractual Obligations
A private individual owns Villa Smeraldo, with a property transfer tax of 9% if buying as a second home, or 2% if it is to be a primary residence.

Potential Land Use
The prestigious villa would be a perfect permanent residence given its quality facilities for both summer and winter. It could also be enjoyed for shorter periods as it is already used for holiday rentals. Given the property's strategic location it has achieved excellent results with pre booked accommodation for the coming seasons.
