3124 : Casa degli Archi
|Floor Space (m²) ca. 145 - Land Size ca. 230 m²||
PROPERTY INFORMATIONProperties such as this are few and far between - this ancient semidetached town house, dating back to the 13th century, is a real gem. The stone building does not only have wonderful views of the historical centre of Assisi, its Rocca and the surrounding countryside, but what makes it an exclusive property, is that it disposes of a generous private garden.
Casa degli Archi is built on two levels which at the moment form two independent apartments but which could be internally connected (there is an approved project). It has been fully restored only recently using top quality materials and preserving the original characteristics of the house (cotto floors, original doors, stone arches,…)
On street level you enter the house in an inviting reception room with fireplace. A corridor leads to the back of the house, to a comfortable eat-in kitchen with the most wonderful views. Off the corridor you find a double bedroom and a bathroom.
A pedestrian passage way brings you to the lower part of the house with a most spectacular living/dining room. This is the room that gave the property its name: it has the most amazing arched ceilings. Blending in is a modern kitchen corner. There is also a bedroom and a bathroom.
The outdoor living can be enjoyed in the lovely peaceful split level garden where you can admire the castle of Assisi. The garden contains various mature trees and plants (nuts, figs, hazelnuts…) and lovely flower beds.
From the house it is a five minutes walk to the main piazza and twenty minutes to the historic Basilica of S Francis. It is within reach of twice hourly busses to the railway station thence main line connections to Rome and Florence by fast inexpensive trains
Assisi does not need any further presentation, the only thing worth to add might be that it is situated at only 15 km from Perugia’s airport with regular flights to London Stansted and Brussels south.
Of course it is also ideally situated to reach some of the other sought-after Umbrian sites such as Spoleto, Montefalco, Perugia, Spello, Bevagna …
An exceptional property if ever there was one!
