Built around a 13th Century church this property has a very romantic story behind it, purchased 28 years ago by a brave American couple who put their heart and sole into restoring this 4 to 5 bedroom structure maintaining its grace and integrity to create a graceful home oozing with character and loaded with eye candy.
The 13th cenury church is listed in the “Ministry of the Belle Arte” with its stone vaulted ceiling. The church is now the living/dining room although the 37 square metre kitchen has dining space and access to a vine covered shaded terrace for summer eating.There are two fireplaces along with all modern conveniences
The ground floor has an entrance hall, kitchen, church, two bedrooms, shower room and technical room, the upper floor has bedroom with en-suite , study (fifth bedroom), master bedroom with fireplace and access to a terrace and steps to the garden, shower room, and separate access to the drying tower now a peaceful study.
The property is accessed by white road lined with cypress trees planted by the owners many years ago and the house is surrounded by a mature drought-resistant garden designed by the internationally renowned garden designer, Don Leevers, and his colleague, Alessandro Tombelli and consequently was featured in “Traditional Home Magazine”. Through the garden is a walkway, shielded by a pergola, leading from the house to a large salt water heated swimming pool with its own pergola and spectacular views. No close neighbours but lots of amazing views to the West all the way to Chiusi La Verna gifting the owner with perfect evening sunsets and lots of peace and quiet.
There is 18 hectares of land which is mostly woodland surrounded by church owned land and regional park.
All this healing perfection just 10 minutes to the historic town of Città Di Castello where there is everything you could possibly need including restaurants, bars, markets and shops.
