A ‘townhouse’ set within an early 19th century palace located in a prestigious historic centre in Umbria at the border with Tuscany. With grottos, large garden and garage, hard to be found in a medieval village. The property has two independent entrances for two/three adjoining, very bright and elegantly restored apartments. It is ready to move in and would be perfect as B&B. Enchanting and picturesque view of the small village with the medieval fortress and the surrounding countryside with the rolling hills. Possibility to purchase separately: apartment at ground floor, basement room and grottos at € 110.000, first, second and third floor at € 290.000.
“Casa Rosa” covers an area of 350 sqm with two independent entrances. The interior spaces are currently divided into three areas, one of which is already an independent apartment with an entrance at ground floor. In total there are 9 rooms, one with a fireplace, 2 kitchens and a kitchenette, 4 bathrooms, a garage/storage area, for a total area of 280sqm. The building was completely renovated using only the best quality materials. There is Umbrian fired terracotta flooring, reclaimed/discovered wood and brick, wooden window and door frames, wooden doors and wrought iron crafted pieces. The roof has been completely designed and newly rebuilt with a wooden frame. The property could be used as B&B or holiday home as it was in the past, with good income. The property includes spacious and beautiful grottos of about 80sqm carved out of the ‘tufo’ rock on which the town rests: four rooms with vaulted arches, on three levels, connected through tunnels. Through one of the tunnels, which leads to the town old paved street, you get to the base of the wall in front of the garden, very hard to be found in a historic centre. The grottos have been completely renovated with exposed walls, terracotta flooring, and are equipped with electricity, running water, toilet and cellar. These charming characteristic rooms have been turned into an enchanting spa. The property has about 2500 sqm of exclusive land, a terrace with olives producing excellent olive oil and fruit trees. Located in front of the property, the grottos can be accessed across the road in front of the town walls. In the garden there is a shed/gazebo of about 20 square metres and an outbuilding for tools, with electricity, running water and well to irrigate the vegetable garden and fruit trees. Possibility to purchase separately: apartment at ground floor, basement room and grottos at € 110.000, first, second and third floor at € 290.000.
The owners currently use this property in the historic centre, as their second home, but given its size, it has the potential to become not only a spacious and luxurious residence to live and share with family and friends, but also as tourist rental accommodation for a useful income stream. Given it’s the strategic location as well as being well served by amenities, it is convenient for visiting the main towns of Tuscany and Umbria. Thanks to its size and potential division into several units, this is an excellent investment.
The early 19th Palazzo has been classified as pre 1967. The property was recently renovated with building permits granted by the urban town planning department. The property has also been registered with the land registry, at the N.C.E.U. for the relevant municipality.
