Dating back to year one thousand, Antica Balìa is located on the top of a hill with a breathtaking 360° view over the valley below. Just a few kms away from Assisi it is characterized by a dominant and private position with easy access via a tree-lined property road. The outside of the house is made of a marvelous Assisi pink stone, whereas stone vaults and ceilings with wooden beams and drawers enhance the living rooms in the inside. No only its beauty but also its particularly fascinating history make this property unique. In its early times it was used as the headquarter for the collection of taxes on behalf of the emperor, conquered in 1400 by count Baglioni, it was later on inhabited by monks and then by farmers, who then decided to abandon it with the end of sharecropping. The property comprises the main house on three levels of about 200 sqm per floor (for a total of 900 gross sqm), a detached building (former chapel) completely rebuilt and currently used as a tool shed of 130 square meters including the porch (of which you can ask for a change of use) and a garage of 160 sqm. The surrounding land is 9 hectares in total, of which 7.5 hectares are cultivated with PDO olive grove with 2,200 olive trees in production and fruit trees.
On each floor, the main wing consists of large halls, the secondary wing of rooms and kitchens. The house has three rooms, two kitchens, five bedrooms, four bathrooms. Around Antica Balìa is a large flat area, which could be easily used to build a large swimming pool.
Being so close to Assisi and so easily reachable this property offers itself to both receptive and housing uses. The building was completely inspected in 1998 and it is currently under optimal conditions. The property is marked in the geographical maps kept at the Vatican Museums. The furniture consists of antique furniture, which can be purchased separately.
