Restored, 300 sq.m farmhouse for sale in an extremely private, panoramic location between Spoleto and the Valnerina, with a second, unfinished house next door measuring 250 sq.m, and 15 hectares of private land. With 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and living area. The second house could be converted into another home.
Just 14 km from Spoleto, the property sits on top of a hill with an amazing panoramic view of the woods and the Valnerina.
Thanks to its 15 hectares of private land, the farmhouse benefits from complete privacy, ideal for those looking for a place to retreat, that’s only 20 minutes from the city centre at the same time.
Spoleto is one of Umbria’s main historic centres; a venue for important shows and exhibitions throughout the year, and the site of the prestigious Festival to which it gives its name and the place to go for all your daily requirements and purchases.
The area around the Valnerina, which the property overlooks, is well-known and loved by both Italian and foreign tourists. Its unspoiled countryside make it a favourite location for open air activities (climbing, rafting, hiking, horse riding, mountain biking etc.) and the whole area is rich in important historical, artistic and architectural sights, including those of religious importance; in fact, Saint Benedict, the patron saint of Europe, and Saint Rita of Cascia were both born here.
The nearest airport is Perugia, 67 km away, (less than an hour’s drive), while Rome’s airports are around two hours away (Ciampino 155 km and Fiumicino 173 km).
Description of buildings
The property comprises two farmhouses: the main house has been fully restored and is in move-in condition, while the second has been restored but is unfinished and needs to be completed.
The main house measures around 330 sq.m in total over two floors, and comprises two separate apartments which are laid out as follows:
A ground-floor apartment with kitchen/diner, living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, another small kitchen with store cupboard/pantry. There is also a large cellar on the ground floor with its own entrance;
A first floor apartment, accessible via an outdoor staircase, with kitchen, bathroom, storeroom, dining room, living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, one with fireplace, and another bathroom.
The second farmhouse, restored but unfinished, measures around 240 sq.m: the building has been restored and requires appliances, internal fixtures and fittings. It could be converted for residential use, and thanks to its size and the layout of the rooms, could host 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms plus living areas (dining kitchen and large living room).
State and finishing
The farmhouses still have their original features typical of historic Umbrian farmhouses, with stone walls and tiled roofs.
The main farmhouse is in move-in condition, having been restored a few years ago, with simple but traditional finishings.
The other farmhouse is still unfinished and is ideal for those who want to choose the internal fixtures and fittings, colours and appliances for themselves.
The land included in the sale extends to 15 hectares, with woodlands and arable land.
Around the two houses there is a large lawn, which is mostly flat.
Use and potential uses
Casale Monte d’Oro is the perfect retreat for those looking for a completely private home in a secluded location, to live close to nature but also near to a city rich in cultural and artistic events, such as Spoleto.
The unfinished annex and the separate ground-floor apartment in the main farmhouse could be turned into a small B&B or used to host small groups for cultural events, artistic activities or yoga classes, all of which require a secluded and special place to provide inspiration.
