Full description:

Detached house for sale in Guardea (TR), with garden, surrounding land, magnificent panoramic views and opportunities for development.

The spacious house is located in Guardea (Terni) in the "Castello del Poggio", on a hill-top with stunning views over the Tiber and only a stone’s throw from the beautiful nature reserve, Oasi di Alviano. An iron gate in the castle walls gives access to an inner courtyard, the entrance to the castle and a small group of houses built along the crenellated walls.
The house is on three floors and has a private garden of about 120 m2. On the lower level, there is a large multipurpose room, a toilet with hand basin, a utility room containing the central heating system and direct access to the garden. Since this floor has a separate entrance, it could be converted to a self-contained living unit. Stairs lead down from this floor to a cellar where the supplementary water tanks are located.
On the first floor, there is a large living room with a fireplace, visible also from the adjacent dining room, which in turn leads onto the kitchen. There is also a bedroom with an en suite bathroom overlooking the garden.
On the second floor, there are three bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms.

At the end of the private garden, there is an ancient ruin that could be rebuilt on its present foundations or extended to create a larger property, subject to permissions.

The house stands in a unique location on the ramparts of one of Italy’s most important historic castles; a secure place where the atmosphere is timeless, steeped in history, tranquil, and surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Umbria.
The private garden, enriched with roses, aromatic plants and fruit trees, is the ideal place to relax in complete privacy.
Land belonging to the property extends well beyond the castle walls and can be accessed through the property’s own private iron door in the perimeter wall.

“Castello del Poggio” was built by the Normans in 1034 on a pre-existing 7th century Byzantine fortress. Recent research suggests that one of history’s greatest scientists, Galileo Galilei, stayed at “Castello del Poggio”. The castle is considered a National Monument both for its unusual military architecture and the historical significance of the events that occurred there.
The property is only 800 m from the centre of the village of Guardea, which has all the basic amenities. It is only 45 km from Terni, 130 km from Rome’s International Airport, 70 km from Umbria International Airport at Perugia, and 25 km from Orvieto, one of the areas finest hilltop cities.
