In an unspoiled corner of Umbria, a few kilometers from the town of Città della Pieve, we find this enchanting property, the result of a project undertaken in 2011 by a famous architect together with an equally famous artist. The building was probably originally an ancient monastery, as can be seen from the fortified buttresses in the back; today after a complete renovation, it has become an enchanting residence surrounded by a park of about 5000sqm, conceived by the well-known English architect Peter Curson; in the garden we find olive trees, which produce a tasty oil, organic fruits and plants of all kinds that create particular colorful movements and delightful views.
The property enjoys a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside with olive groves and vineyards: from Chianciano to Montepulciano; from Chiusi to Lake Trasimeno.
The 434 sqm farmhouse is spread over 3 floors: in the basement there are the laundry room, the thermal power plant, the cellars, a sauna and a gym area. On the ground floor we find: the living area with direct access to the garden through large windows that make the rooms bright; the dining area and super-equipped kitchen (with lights inside the drawers, microwave, oven, food warmer) all finished with a special Indian granite; compared to the typical farmhouses of the area, the architect has played with stairs and the mezzanine to create original spaces and finding solutions such as the open gable in the living room to increase the brightness.
On the same floor there are two bedrooms both with ensuite bathroom and one with wardrobe, a service bathroom where there is a painting representing the surrounding countryside, also by the architect. A wooden, iron and glass staircase - a tribute to the artist Alberto Giacometti - leads to the first floor, where we find three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and wardrobes as well as an entrance to the mezzanine and a romantic terrace.
The attention to detail makes this property unique and suggestive. The property has an underfloor heating system powered by both LPG and a geothermal system that also works for cooling. The management costs are minimal as there are also solar panels for hot water and a 15kwt photovoltaic system. The infinity pool of 13x7 meters and purified with salt, has a very comfortable 35 m2 porch with bathroom, ideal for alfresco lunches and dinners. The property includes an annex of 68sqm on two floors: on the ground floor there is a living room, kitchen and bathroom; in the basement we find the rooms used as a garage and the water plant.
A luxury property where art and architecture are central elements, which respects the environment and gives a magical and fairytale atmosphere. Distances: 4km Città della Pieve, 10km Chiusi station, 22km from Lake Trasimeno, 34km from Montepulciano, 47km from Perugia, 90km from Siena, 150km from Rome and 130km from Florence.
