Restored €195.000,00 - Country Properties
Il Vecchio Seccatoio – Nestling in the hills of Umbria, on the border of Tuscany with Cortona only a 35 minute drive away, this restored former Seccatoio (Tobacco barn) is peaceful and yet not isolated, as there are neighbours including a medieval castle above and a 15th century monastery across the valley.
The approx. 150 m² house was fully restored in 2000 and the present owners have upgraded Il Vecchio Seccatoio further by adding a new kitchen, state of the art wood burning fire, central heating and a deep well for plentiful water supply. All rooms have original beams. All flooring is tiled.
The front garden is lawned and has ample parking for two cars. The large back garden with beautiful views is spread over two levels. There is a patio/barbecue area located outside the back door. Here there is also a rockery and rose garden. The bottom level has fruit trees and lawn. The second level is also lawned and has a hammock area and further seating area. The two levels are separated by a bank of rosemary and lavender plants.
There is ample room to build a swimming pool.
The large village of Trestina has everything from doctors, pharmacists, bank, post office, supermarkets and its own train station. The nearest hamlet of Petrelle has two bars, a small grocery store and petrol station.
The majority of the furniture and fittings are included in the price.
The ground floor has a wonderful loggia perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing and this could also be transformed into two further rooms such as a third bedroom and a dining room if required.
There is a fully fitted modern kitchen with breakfast/dining unit and doors to the front garden. There is also a comfortable lounge with doors leading to the loggia and back garden. Off the lounge and under the stairwell is an extra small room which is used as storage and utility.
The staircase leads to two double bedrooms and a fully fitted bathroom with bath.
