Immersed in nature, at a few kilometres from the village of Ficulle and not far from Orvieto, is this beautiful stone farmhouse measuring approx. 300 sqm, which has managed to maintain its authentic feel, surrounded by the Umbrian countryside.
The farmhouse, which was renovated according to the designs of the famous Roman architect Domenico Minchilli, is located in an extremely panoramic and quiet position not far from the main road, so it remains easily accessible with the freedom to enjoy the peace that only the Umbrian countryside can give, and includes a splendid pool measuring 12x5 m.
The farmhouse is arranged over two levels with:
Ground floor: entrance, large living room with fireplace, kitchen with access to the patio - perfect for alfresco dining-, pantry and laundry room, double bedroom with wardrobe, bathroom with shower and bathtub, and double bedroom with bathroom with shower;
First floor: large living room with wood stove with access to the loggia, double bedroom, bedroom currently used as a study and bathroom with tub and shower.
The two floors are connected by internal and external
stairs, with independent entrances, so the farmhouse could easily be divided
into two separate units. The farmhouse furthermore boasts typical features such as open-beamed ceilings with terracotta tiles and is sold almost fully furnished.
Furthermore, the house has full gas central heating, underfloor in the kitchen/living room and by radiators throughout the rest of the house. There is an existing Broadband service (currently suspended). Water is supplied via a well with excellent capacity, but nevertheless there is 10,000 litre storage tank for household water; in addition to this, there is another 10,000 litre garden water tank, used to top up the swimming pool and for garden irrigation. Furthermore, it is possible to extend the farmhouse with approx. 90 sqm.
The property is surrounded by garden and land totalling approx. 1.2 ha with 50 Olive trees, which in a good year have supplied 130 litres of beautiful Umbrian Olive oil! The pool enjoys splendid views over the hills of Umbria and Tuscany, and towards Orvieto.
Furthermore, the property includes a large cave excavated out of the tufa, a garage and a utility room housing the water softener, gas boiler and UV water treatment unit.
Good rail links to Rome and Florence. The area has an abundance of all the traditional Umbrian specialities and of course the wonderful wines of Orvieto are on the doorstep.
