Located in a stunning rural location and surrounded by just over a hectare of land with mature and well laid-out gardens, this heartbreakingly beautiful five-bedroom property with a pool has been meticulously restored and is maintained with the greatest of care. Originally a tower during the 15 -16th centuries, it was transformed and extended into a farmhouse a couple of hundred years later and subsequently restored and renovated up to the present day.
On two floors, and with two external staircases, the property consists of an entrance hall leading to an L' shaped dining room and kitchen with dual external access and an antique fireplace. Stairs from the hall lead up to a pretty sitting room, also with a fireplace and access to the external staircase and large covered loggia. There is a bedroom with an en suite bathroom just off the sitting room and a corridor on the other side of the room leads to a study, two further bedrooms and a bathroom as well as a second sitting room, again with a fireplace and access to the second external staircase. This particular room, which is full of lovely natural light, could easily be transformed into a beautiful bedroom suite if required.
On the ground floor there are two additional guest bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with garden access) and a kitchen that is currently used as a gym. There are a number of ground floor storage rooms and an antique bread oven.
San Giorgio has all of the traditional elements that one would expect to find in a property of this kind, exposed wooden beams, beautiful marble treads on the staircase, three antique fireplaces in the house and adorable features here and there that all add to the beauty of this lovely building. The terracotta floors throughout are especially lovely.
The 14 x 6 metre saltwater pool with panoramic views and a sturdy, concealed electric cover, is surrounded by a paved solarium. At the head of the pool is a large garden room with a fireplace; ideal for those early spring and late summer evenings when the days are short and the weather cooler. Outside lighting illuminates both the pool and the garden that is threaded with stone pathways. There are various terraces around the property and a pergola, with plenty of space for outside diners, flanks the front of the house with easy access to both the kitchen and the pool.
The gardens are absolutely magical; seemingly effortless and punctuated with well over 100 olives trees and numerous mature and flowering plants. The view from the property is breath-taking; distant, far reaching and pretty much undisturbed. A heartbreakingly lovely property in a peaceful location only 20 kilometres or so from both Umbertide and Perugia, and 35 kms from Perugia airport.
