Brief description

Historic hamlet in need of restoration in a panoramic and hilly location, halfway between Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. The property comprises the hamlet, with a total surface area of around 952 sq.m, and 4 agricultural annexes, surrounded by 4 hectares of land, with swimming pool.

Geographic position

Borgo delle Fate is situated halfway between Perugia (13 km) and Lake Trasimeno (8 km), and is a large building requiring restoration, with an internal courtyard, surrounded by around 4 hectares of private land.

While the property is in the Umbrian countryside, it is not far from the border with Tuscany, in a hilly, panoramic location ideal for day trips to the main historic centres of both regions: in less than an hour, it is possible to get to Cortona (36 km), Assisi (37 km), Spello (42 km), Trevi (59 km), Spoleto (75 Km) and Arezzo (82 km).

The nearest airport is Perugia, 25 km away, while Rome’s airports can be reached in around two hours (Ciampino 198 km and Fiumucino 212 km).

Description of buildings

The property comprises several residential units, all requiring restoration, connected to one another to form a small, horseshoe-shaped hamlet around the internal courtyard.

The buildings, with a total surface area of approximately 950 sq.m, have three floors with rooms that have been adapted for living purposes. In addition to the farmhouse, there are also two large warehouses and 3 agricultural buildings of various sizes, also in need of restoration.

Due to its large size, the property has interesting potential: ideal to turn into an impressive private residence, with large spaces for events, exhibitions etc, or to split into more residential units with separate entrances, for resale or rent. It would also be perfect as tourist accommodation. 

State and finishing

As we can tell from its architectural features, it is likely that Borgo delle Fate was built in the 18th century. The structure is typical of Umbrian farmhouses. The buildings are in need of complete restoration, however there are interesting elements inside that deserve to be kept, such as the arched gateway that provides access to the property, the beamed and tiled ceilings, the vaulted ceilings in the stables, some of the original stone and tiled floors and some of the internal fixtures. 

External areas

Borgo delle Fate is surrounded by 4 hectares of private land, with a pool and 3 agricultural buildings measuring 28, 29 and 88 sq.m. 

Use and potential uses

Due to its generous size and central position in relation to important historic centres of Umbria and Tuscany, the property lends itself to various uses; as an impressive private home, tourist/guest accommodation, or made into separate apartments to sell or to rent.
