Casa Campello – For anyone interested in contemporary architecture in a medieval building, this is the right address. And who dreamt to find this in an enchanting panoramic position, can be sure to get his money’s worth.
With Casa Campello, a German architect and his wife, a sculptor from New York, have created their own Italian dream here, with great respect for the old building combined with a contemporary design, including all technical comfort such as floor heating.
The surrounding garden with its various terraces has been designed by a renowned Berlin landscape architect and reflects the same ideas.
The detached stone house dates back to the 15th century. The stone arch over the entrance door or the hand-worked chestnut beams are contemporary witnesses. The property is part of a small hamlet (5 houses) and is situated at 590 m., above the winter fog line and overlooking the picturesque castle of Campello Alto.
The seemingly endless views continue over the gentle hills of the Valle Umbra and, in the distance, to the well-known city of Spoleto and the Apennines beyond.
Casa Campello has an ideal south-facing orientation, is flooded with light and offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The Monte Serano in the north protects the property from north winds and creates a mild microclimate during winter, whereas the summer nights here are pleasantly cooler than in the valley.
The house is divided into two separate autonomous apartments, which could be connected by an interior staircase if necessary. Due to the hillside position both apartments are connected directly to a garden area.
The 3600 m² of land are divided in a landscaped garden (1600 m²) and an olive grove with additional parking opportunity. The garden invites you to marvel, linger and relax, with a multitude of ideas and situations: a small “dipping pool” (3 x 4 m) has been integrated in a natural rock terrace, an outdoor kitchen allows sunset barbecues, a greenhouse is used as winter garden for lemon and orange trees but also as a tearoom on sunny winter days, a fig tree has become a tree house, powerful agaves define the ramparts of the hill and colourful irises turn April into a feast for the eye.
The property can be bought as a whole, but there is also the possibility to buy only one of the two apartments.
Lower floor apartment (ca. 150 m²): spacious living room, eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms (one with its own small terrace), bathroom, entrance hall and impressive grotto. Both the living room and the kitchen have access to a covered panoramic terrace and the garden.
Upper floor apartment (ca. 200 m²): large open plan kitchen/dining/living room with thermo fireplace, reception room with gallery (currently used as a studio), bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a second room.
From the living room you reach the garden and a second living area used as an artist’s studio (with a kiln for pottery) which could be redesigned as an additional bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
There is the possibility to add another 70 m².
