Restored €3.250.000,00 - Country Properties
Podere dei Danesi is a prestigious property composed of two large stone houses, 2 guest apartments and a panoramic pool with pool house, with the most amazing views of the Umbrian country side. Restored with great taste, using high quality materials maintaining the traditional style.
The two houses date back a couple of hundred years and were carefully renovated in 2001 preserving the original and authentic character of the property. Take the original and authentic brickwork and exposed beams, arches and floors of rough travertine and combine that with handmade furniture made by the local craftsmen. Then add inventive conveniences such as heated bathroom floors, Satellite TV, and Wireless Internet and on top of that double glazing throughout, with glass doors in all the rooms on the ground floor and big windows in all the rooms on the first floor, all overlooking the valley and the mountains – and the result is a very special and unique property.
Next to the two houses is a privately situated guest house which is divided into two independent apartments with terraces.
The pool and pool house are privately located on a slightly higher level, again with unspoiled views over surrounding countryside. The pool is 7 X 14 m surrounded by a sun terrace with ample space for chairs, tables and sun beds. There is an outdoor shower. The pool house has a bathroom, shower room, changing room, and a covered relaxing and BBQ area. Completing the property are some 2,3 ha of land with some 160 olive trees with excellent produce.
Umbria, with its olive groves and gently rolling, vine and sunflower-covered hills, is the green heart of Italy. Here, Italian tradition, art and history belong to everyday life. Cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spello and Todi transfer the visitor back to the Renaissance or the middle Ages.
In the countryside one often unexpectedly stumbles across impressive Etruscan graves, Roman bridges or ancient ruins. The landscape is full of diversity, whether it’s charming and cheerful, or rough and wild.
