Description

This Tuscan stone�house started life as a watermill, as did many houses in the area, driven by water from the Esse stream which runs along the front of it. Although the original workings have long since disappeared, there is still evidence here and there of its original purpose. The�1.2 hectares of land on which it sits comprise mainly steep hillside, thickly wooded with the indigenous oak trees. This unspoiled area is protected from further development and contains a rich variety of wildlife, including porcupines, squirrels, foxes, and a wonderful range of birds: Golden Orioles, Hoopoes, blackbirds, finches, swallows, to name a few. The stream provides a constant sound backdrop which varies with the seasons. �

Originally consisting of only two rooms, the present owners extended and modified the house to its present form. It now comprises: two bedrooms, with a mezzanine gallery providing a third, large�living room and kitchen/dining room, two bathrooms � one with bath the other a shower room which has recently been upgraded, and a laundry room. There are two outside stores.�The mezzanine gallery is above the living room. The living room leads out to a terrace and garden and a terrace at the back leads onto a meadow and woodland. Parking space is shaded by a wisteria covered pergola. �

The house will benefit from a degree of upgrading, but is already completely habitable, with central heating,�modern bathrooms, working kitchen and wood-burning stoves. There is great walking in the area and from the house you can walk straight out into the most beautiful countryside, or indeed walk to a renowned local restaurant only a few hundred metres away. With one foot in Tuscany and one in Umbria and with quick train access to Rome and Florence one can easily reach all that is best in Italy's rich culture.
