Casale Il Dipinto is a beautifully restored ancient tower for sale, situated across from the medieval castle of Spoleto Rocca and the Ponte delle Torri, the old aqueduct, and enjoys stunning views of the country side around Spoleto and of the old town.
The south-facing Casale Il Dipinto dates back to 1577, and is the site from where the painter Turner made a drawing of the Ponte delle Torri which is now in the Tate Gallery in London.
Completing the property are ca. 1.2 ha of land containing an olive grove, pine trees and woodland. The impressive terraced gardens with age-old stone walls are plumbed for automatic sprinklers. There is ample space to build a pool.
Casale Il Dipinto is privately situated without immediate neighbours, tranquil, surrounded by nature, and yet a short distance from the town centre which can be reached by 10 minutes’ drive, or by foot along the footpath and over the aqueduct. (30 scenic minutes)
Spoleto has a major train station, allowing you easy access by train to the centre of Rome as well as the Marche beaches. Also many other important Umbrian sites are within easy reach: Trevi (25 Km), Montefalco (30 km) Bevagna (45 Km), Assisi (50 km), Todi (50 Km), Perugia (70 Km).
The closest airports are Perugia (60 km, with regular flights to London Stansted, Brussels south, Dusseldorf Weeze and Munich) and Rome Fiumicino 160 Km.
The historic house is built on 3 levels. On the lower floor there is an entrance that leads directly into a spacious dining room with fireplace, and through a very old beautiful stone archway, to a kitchen with spectacular views. On this same level there is a bedroom and a bathroom. From this level a set of steps leads down to a lower terrace, below which there is a boiler room and a tool shed.
From the dining room an elegant modern spiral staircase leads up to the middle floor, with a spacious lounge with fireplace, a living room/study, a bedroom and bathroom. The house can also be accessed from the outside at this level.
The spiral staircase continues to the upper floor, containing a loft with a very high ceiling, which can be used as a third bedroom, and a half bath. Off the loft there is access to a terrace, from where you can enjoy, once more, the most stunning views towards Spoleto.
There are terracotta floors throughout the whole house. There is gas central heating and there are radiators. There is a telephone line in the house with broadband Wi-Fi internet access, as well as a satellite system.
Most of the furniture is available by separate negotiation.
