Welcome to the quintessential Italian experience, a beautifully resurrected 5 bedroom country house in the renowned Umbria region of Italy, specifically located in the picturesque city of Città di Castello, Perugia. With a wealth of history, this captivating stone-built former farmhouse takes you back to the 1800s, while its masterful restoration offers all the conveniences for modern living.

The property is not merely a house; it is a tranquil homestead enveloped by 4 hectares of private woodland, adorned with centuries-old oaks, an olive grove, a lush walnut grove, and a dedicated truffle reserve. This serene setting provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life and is an ideal location for a country home.

At your doorstep, you'll find the historic village of San Leo Bastia, perched at 320 meters above sea level. Here, the essence of local culture is ever-present with an annual calendar packed with truffle and mushroom festivals, the traditional Carnival Masquerade, and the youth-led Palio delle Torri.

Neighbouring Tuscany is not much further, providing an eclectic blend of world-renowned food, art, and landscapes to explore. Regardless whether you find your leisure in truffle hunting, olive picking or taking part at the community festivals, this location truly captures the very best of Italian living.

Getting back to the house, each of the three apartments has been curated to preserve the original structure, and each one is distinct in design. Wooden double-glazed windows and French doors characterise each residence, along with living areas boasting stone fireplaces, handmade terracotta floors, and high ceilings accentuated with exposed wooden beams.

The splendid conversion of the old stable into a contemporary living room demonstrates architectural dexterity with an imposing brick arch and a stone fireplace. A large porch off this space overlooks a meticulously manicured lawn garden, making it the perfect relaxation spot or venue for entertaining guests.

The old barn has also been re-invented, showcasing gorgeous brick walls and substantial windows that frame tranquil views of the exterior terrace and garden. This now multifunctional open room includes a cosy fireplace and a private bathroom.

Adding to the overall appeal of this astoundingly alluring country home is the potential to build an in-ground swimming pool within the sprawling, cypress border garden, further enhancing the outdoor space. On wandering through the gardens, you'll discover a fascinating showcase of ancient tools once used by local farmers, adding a nod to the rich history of the region.
