This lovely 2 bedroom cottage in Umbria (Lonely Planet 'Best in Travel 2023') of 122 cadastral sq mt is nestled in an enchanting and sunny position at walking distance from the medieval walls of Montefalco on the route of 'La Strada del Sagrantino'. In perfect condition, thanks to the meticulous and recent renovation where nothing has been left to chance, it features antiques that complement the sobriety of the antique Tuscan terracotta tiling and contemporary craftsmanship. The 2 level house is surrounded by a well-kept garden (approx. 1000 sq m), hedged by high trunk trees, with English mowed lawn, rose and lavender borders and 40 productive olive trees. Part of the living area has been converted into a large patio, an outdoor living room to enjoy the garden and the enviable view over the valley below and, as far as the eye can see, over the hills of Trevi and Spoleto. This external volume, which is habitable and counted as such, could be enclosed. The main door opens onto the living room, which features a charming fireplace and a large opening onto the patio. The well-lit kitchen/dining room with excellent made-to-measure joinery is also equipped with a fireplace at worktop height, ideal for winter barbecues. Hallway leads to a cloakroom, just before the guest bathroom with shower. The grey peperino staircase leads to the sleeping area on the upper floor, consisting of two double bedrooms, one of which has a small balcony with spectacular views, the other one with en-suite
bathroom with tub.
The slightly sloping garden with irrigation system, which draws from the adjacent stream, has an outdoor shower where the owners would have liked to place a jacuzzi (to be built). The property is completed by a wooden chalet, essential storage for tools and bicycles and wood, and a shaded parking space outside the fence.
Furniture available upon separate negotiation.
