Set in 55 hectares of traditional Tuscan countryside overlooking the Umbrian hills towards Mercatale, this well positioned country house is set in a secluded position close to the village of in the Lake Trasimeno part of southern Tuscany.
6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 spacious sitting rooms, kitchen/dining room, study all set in an excellent conversion of a Tuscan farm house by an interior designer. Swimming pool 12 m x 6 m with infinity edge and terrace with pergola.
The property has been converted from a charming Tuscany stone farmhouse set in attractive easy maintenance fenced gardens. It is approached over a typical Tuscan white road via a gate to a car parking area in front of the former farmhouse. An enclosed stone terrace links the car park to the main entrance and into a large double height living room with original stone fireplace and restored beams and terracotta ceiling. This room also has French doors to a small terrace and to the garden. A corridor leads to a staircase passing 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom and also to the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
The staircase leads to the lower ground floor and to the main south facing terrace and outside dining area. A well-fitted kitchen with good work surfaces is large and has ample space for dining. Off this is the study area with fireplace and access to a further bedroom and bathroom.
Outside are two small independent stone buildings each providing a double bedroom with bathroom. All the accommodation has enjoyed the personal attention of the interior designer owner and the result is a series of individual rooms set over two floors.
The gardens are a careful mixture of flowering shrubs and well established trees and are enclosed by a ring fence. A stone path leads from the main dining terrace to the very individual swimming pool with plenty of terracing and a shady pergola facing a bucolic vista of wooded hills. A further path leads up to a viewing point that allows one to enjoy the panorama of Lake Trasimeno. The surrounding land is mostly woodland and provides excellent amenity space.
