Only a few minutes away from the nearest town, Villa Prosperini was elegantly restored about 10 years ago. The ground floor consists of an entrance hall with direct access to both the formal dining and sitting rooms. A hallway leads to a pretty little study and kitchen with adjacent scullery where the central heating boilers are housed.A beautiful white marble staircase rises up from the black and white checkered hallway to the first and second floors where there are a total of 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, one of which has the original 1930's fittings. Also on the first floor there is a sunny library that connects the two largest bedrooms and this lovely space has a wrought iron trimmed balcony that overlooks the formal garden and decorative pond with fountain.The villa is accessed via a private tree lined drive and hand made wrought iron gates open onto the garden to the front of the house, whilst to the rear there is a large two storey annex that requires internal renovation but is already completed externally. There are two garages on the ground floor of the annex. The 12 x 6 metre saltwater pool sits on a lower level than the villa and is therefore invisible during the winter when it is covered and less attractive. A third annnex, much smaller and requiring total renovation, is located on that same level and would be perfect as a pool house or smaller guest accommodation.The area surrounding the villa is planted with very mature trees including two magnificent cedars. The garden and land are well maintained and envelop the villa and guest cottage providing both privacy and seclusion. That said the location is very convenient with shops and amenities within a five minute drive.
Mid-way between Città di Castello and Umbertide.
