What you should know about this house

Amenities and special features of this house

Located atop a medieval hamlet on the rolling Umbrian hills, this magnificently restored mansion dating back to the mid 1600’s features solemn Baroque architecture on the exterior enchanted with frescoed vaults, silk-lined walls, and luxurious furnishings inside. The manor villa is laid out on four levels with the top two floors offering 965 square meters (10,000 sq.ft.) of livable space.
The entrance is on the ground floor and leads to a wide carriage hall with an illuminated internal well and unobstructed panoramic views of the vast expanse of the Tiber river valley below, a large garrison room with 4,80m (nearly 16ft) high vaulted ceilings and fortress-like stone walls (thick enough to provide thermal insulation), and a series of detached workshop and storage rooms in addition to a service kitchen. A massive stone staircase connects all the floors.

The first floor, or piano nobile, opens to a central, richly-decorated lounge room with a massive stone fireplace, a frescoed vaulted ceiling, and silk-lined walls. From here one can access five different rooms: a coffered ceiling library with fireplace; an elegant sitting room also with fireplace; a drawing room entirely frescoed by artist Andrea Galeotti in the mid-1800’s.; a formal dining room with a stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling that opens to a terrace for summer eating; and a quaint coffered ceiling family room that leads to a large kitchen with a fireplace. In addition, two corner bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a silver-and-plate room serving the dining room, and a half bath complete the piano nobile which boasts marble and terracotta floors that measure 520 sqm (5,600 sq.ft.).
The second level consists of 445 square meters divided into four bedrooms, each with its own fireplace and en-suite bathroom. There are 7 additional rooms and a walk-in attic to complete the second floor which has lower, wooden beam ceilings throughout.
The underground floor has two wine cellar rooms, a hall, and a vast, barrel-vaulted ceiling room made of exposed stones. This suggestive setting is ideal to house large banquets or create a spa or inside pool.
The estate, which is lived in by the owners, includes a two-level farmhouse annex (462 sqm or 5,000 sq.ft.) housing a permanent private “Old Farming Society Life” exhibit, a two-level gatekeeper’s house (114 sqm or 1,200 sq.ft.), a three-car garage, a split level garden featuring a lemon tree house and towering trees, and 3 hectares (7.4 acres) of dense, sloping woods.
Finally, the estate and surrounding area are protected by the Regional Board of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. This majestic residence was also featured by the British daily "The Times" in an article published in 2007.
