This renovated 18 Century property is composed of a double storey farmhouse of 230 sq. metres and its one storey annex of about 40 sqm. There is also a fully restored/developed capanna of about 40sqm plus a covered portico, an old oven in good working order, a store room with outdoor facilities and a stone BBQ.
The property has its private road entrance and it’s situated near Deruta, famous for its hand-painted ceramics and is not far from Perugia (about 20 kms away).
It has an half hectare of fully fenced and landscaped garden with iconic pinus pinea trees, an old cedar and mature pencil pines line the driveway. Also a wisteria walkway and lavender and rosemary hedges add a romantic touch.
The main restorations on the house were carried out in 1977, with further updates over the years. The house has maintained its old structure and the typical Umbrian style with original materials, the antique arch, the manger and old fireplaces.
The large sitting room on the ground floor originally housed the Chianina cattle belonging to the farm – the smooth area on the archway testament to where they rubbed their shoulders.
The floor tiles in this sitting room are called “pianelle”, and, prior to restoration, formed part of the roofing of the house. Although they require a fair amount of upkeep, the beautifully coloured hand made ‘pianelle” are much valued.
