- Ground floor: entrance hall, living room with library, kitchen, bathroom and closet. From the kitchen one can exit to the portico, ideal for al fresco dining and meeting.

The pool house (10 sqm – 107 sqft) offers a shower and a closet for the equipment of the pool.
An annex (70 sqm – 753 sqft) hosts the garage, a recovery and a technical room with laundry room. A permit for housing rests on the building, which would allow converting the building into a residential unit. Plumbing and electricity are already installed.
STATE AND FINISHES
The farmhouse was built in 2010, respecting all the modern anti-seismic criteria but following the rural tradition of Tuscany and Umbria. The building is made out of stone and boasts on the inside chestnut wooden beams, terracotta tiles and ceramic flooring.
Electricity cables have been carefully placed underground to avoid having trellises inside and/or in the vicinity of the property.
The property is made up of 3.3 hectares of land, mainly covered by the park of the farmhouse and fully fenced. The garden, rich in flowers and decorative plants, is irrigated via an automatic system. Not far from the building is located a pergola (38 sqm – 409 sqft) particularly suited for al fresco dining. A bit farther from the farmhouse, a fruit orchard hosts apple, pear, cherry, apricot and plum trees.
The salt-water pool (12 x 6 m) is equipped with an illumination system for night bath and a shaded solarium for a total relaxation.
Access to the property is through an automatic gate opening onto a beautiful and typical cypress-lined avenue leading to the farmhouse.
Not far from the farmhouse is located a grass futsal court which could be easily converted into a tennis court if preferred.
The surrounding area is spacious enough to land with a private helicopter.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The farmhouse was finely built and can easily be used as a private residence if you are looking for peace and tranquility. Alternatively, thanks to an extremely comfortable location which allows moving throughout Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio, it is possible to start a B&B-like hosting business equipped with pool, futsal/tennis court and ample spaces which allows enjoying the pleasant climate of the Umbrian countryside.
