Country House and XLarge Stable

Project Details

Location:Avigliano Umbro (TR)
Gross Building Area:600 m2
Estimated Building Time:18 Months
Price: € 250.000

The Project

Surrounded by rolling hills, golden fields and with a view of cypresses this property looks to be positioned in the middle of Tuscany. Its location is however in the heart of Umbria and conveniently close to both Tuscany and Rome. The property used to be part of the Corsini property, a famous and ancient local family, and the farm house still features the family’s coat of arms over the original front door.

There are two existing structures, one being a 19th century farmhouse and the second one a very large stable which used to house many cows. The farmhouse is structurally in good condition, meaning the walls can remain in place. Apart from that is would have to be gutted and redone completely, leaving plenty of space for personal preferences and imagination. It is also an option to tear down the house and move it (350 sq m + 100 sq m amplification) slightly uphill to enjoy a somewhat more dominant position. The design can then be adjusted to adept to the new location.
With regard to the stable of 600 sq m, it can either stay in place or be broken down after which 200 sq m can be placed at a higher part of the land, it will have to remain separate from the other structure and can be used as residence. 400 Sq m will be available for agricultural outbuildings.
With 600 sq m to be used as residence there are lots of possibilities for residential and/or commercial use.

Currently the grounds abandoned and not maintained. There is ample space for landscaping including a large size pool, gardens, olive groves, orchards, terraces, parking and any other feature as desired.

The project is situated in the peaceful countryside between Todi (14 km) and Amelia (20 km), at 2 km from the nearest hamlet and 6 km from all necessary amenities.  Perugia has the nearest airport at 65 km distance, Rome with two international airports is only 116 km away.

1600s Palazzo with Garden and Watch Tower - Aerial View

1600’s Palazzo with Garden and Watch Tower

Project Details

Location:San Venanzo (TR)
Gross Building Area:275 m2
Estimated Building Time:1 Year
Costs in Current State:Asking € 285.000

Short Description

A well maintained medieval hamlet is home to this rare property, a 17th century “palazzo” with a wonderful and large garden! The setting is delightful and the potential is obvious. There is plenty of space and the possibility to create either a fantastic home or for example a lovely B&B. Some work needs to be done but it will be quite easy to transform the inside into a warm, welcoming and comfortable home.

The Palazzo

This palace is an old style Italian ‘palazzo’, the word that describes a large family home in an historic center. Though part of an even older hamlet this impressive building dates back to the 17th century. It is set against the huge wall surrounding the hamlet and its front door is located in one of the two quaint little streets. The house spreads out over three floors plus two spacious attics and offers many large spaces. The ground floor harbours old cellars and one separate space where once the post office was located.
Wide stairs lead up to the first floor consisting of the traditional “zona giorno”. The two sitting rooms have traditional ceilings with brick vaults, while the corridor and kitchen features ceiling with wooden beams and bricks.A balcony offers access to the garden.
The second floor consists of four bedrooms and a bathroom. Again part of the ceiling is made with vaults, part with wooden beams and bricks. Another balcony is the best place to enjoy the breathtaking view of the wall and the countryside beyond it.
The house is structurally in good condition but is in need of up-dates and upgrades. For someone willing to invest some money and TLC this house can be turned into an absolutely unique home!

The Land

The palazzo currently does not offer ground floor garden access but that will be easy to create. The garden is simply enchanting as well as extraordinary and currently in use as vegetable garden. With quite a large surface, of about 300 square meters and set within the thick ancient wall surrounding the hamlet it seems a hidden gem. The most captivating detail is without a doubt the tower at the corner. The tower features a beautiful stone archway which give access to the inside where there is a deep well. It is possible to create for example a pool and sundeck as well as other outdoor features.
Outside and behind the wall another strip of land is included. It once harboured a chicken coop and can be used for various other purposes.
The wall itself needs some readjustments on the top part as well as on some side parts. One of the neighbouring properties offers a walkway on top of their part of the wall which gives the possibility enjoy the views from atop the wall.

The Area

The village is located in the hills between Todi and Marsciano. A lovely unspoiled area with gorgeous views, winding roads and lots of vineyards as well as olive groves. There is a little bar which is open during the evening in the summer season and which is a great way to get in touch with all the villagers. The nearest amenities are located about 6 km away.

Note: This property is located well away from areas damages by earthquakes.
