Description of buildings
The property comprises an independent section of a villa, with a total surface area of 485 sq.m, with private garden and historic lemon-house of 80 sq.m, fully restored and converted into an annex.
Section of villa
Developed over three levels, the ground floor comprises the entrance, living room and dining kitchen, all of which have access to a typical loggia converted into a dining area with 6 large windows, one bedroom, bathroom and storeroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a studio which could be used as a third bedroom, another studio, a bathroom and a storeroom. The basement level is particularly distinctive, with an area which still has some of the original brick ceilings and boasts ancillary compartments originally intended for use as wine cellars/basements, storerooms, pantry and a bathroom. These areas would be perfect for use as a studio or exhibition space.
A wood-burning oven with independent access provides a typically Umbrian atmosphere.
Converted from the old lemon-house, the annex is on the ground floor with a total surface area of 80 sq.m, and comprises a living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two storerooms. Outside there is a pretty porch that faces the garden.
State and finishing
The property is in excellent condition.
Careful and attentive restoration has maintained the original features, the floors are actually the original earthenware tiles, the ceilings are all wood-beamed with tiles apart from in one area of the basement where they are brick vaulted; in addition, a large number of the internal fixtures are original.
The front of the villa and the lemon-house open onto a pretty, private walled garden of approximately 1000 sq.m, which provides privacy and seclusion to the property.
Inside the garden there are areas of well-maintained lawn, lush hedges with lavender, oleander, rose and bay, which flower in the spring creating a scented rainbow of colour, and some trees which create pleasant areas of shade. Behind the villa there is a back garden with a vegetable garden and a few fruit trees. The porch of the lemon-house is perfect for alfresco lunches when the weather is nice.
