Charming cottage surrounded by the green flowing hills of the Umbrian countryside, located in a small and old hamlet in the Municipality of Castiglione del Lago.
The house was fully and finely restored in 2001, with the intent to maintain the original feel of the house, and in fact, there are a number of features so typical of Umbrian constructions. The roof, window and door fixtures, kitchen and utility systems were all redone. Externally, the facades are made of old bricks and local stones; the roof was redone with use of the original old roof tiles; internally there are open beamed ceilings and terracotta tiles, in the living room we find a fireplace and wood stove; terracotta floor tiling throughout. The external window and door fixtures are all original, with internal shutters, which were skilfully restored.
The house can be enlarged with an additional 100 square meters.
The well-kept garden of approx. 400 square meters is surrounded by olive trees and the spacious pergola allows one to enjoy outdoor life in summertime, the aromatic and decorative plants, walkway around the house, the stone walls, the peace and quiet, the views over the surrounding countryside, make this property a wonderful place to enjoy life. A plot of detached land is included in the sale.
