Brief description

Old country villa from the 17th century, in need of renovation, in convenient and private location half an hour from Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. Commercial area of 220 sqm approx, with living room, kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and woodshed. Tower with small panoramic terrace and private land of 5 hectares.



Geographic position

Villa dell'Antica Torre is a charming residence located in Umbria, between Perugia and Marsciano, in a panoramic and elevated position on a green hill overlooking the Nestore Valley. The area, which is rich in woods, olive groves and medieval villages, offers the possibility of living immersed in nature and history.


The property, although rich in privacy, is easily accessible by a well-maintained dirt road that, starting from the provincial road, climbs up the hillside.
Less than a kilometer away is the Borgo di Montelagello, a charming medieval castle that stands along the ancient Via Orvietana, while the nearest town, a reference point for daily needs, is Compignano, about 5 km away.

Marsciano, 13 km away, hosts a wide variety of services, including banks, pharmacies, shopping centers, places of worship, bars, restaurants and the post office.
Perugia, a half-hour's drive (25 km) away, besides being the capital and one of the region's major historic cities, is a renowned university center and also hosts an international parished school.
Lake Trasimeno, 30 km away, can be reached in just half an hour and Todi, 34 km away, in just 40 minutes by car.

The hamlet's location is also convenient and barycentric to several other important historic towns in Umbria and Tuscany, such as Castiglione del Lago (44 km), Orvieto (50 km), Assisi (53 km) and Montepulciano (63 km).


For golf enthusiasts, the Perugia Golf Club, with an 18-hole, par 72, 5,735-meter-long course, is just 24 km away. The gently undulating course dates back to the late 1950s, and its clubhouse was carved out of an old lime kiln from 1921, with imperious towers towering over the course, evoking English golf courses.


Perugia airport is 38 km away, reachable in about 45 minutes by car, and the airports of Rome Ciampino (175 km), Rome Fiumicino (190 km) and Florence (178 km) can all be reached in just over two hours by car.

Description of buildings

Villa dell'Antica Torre is an ancient building built in the 17th century, very characteristic, thanks to the presence of two striking diagonally opposed circular towers, one of which rises one floor above the top level of the dwelling, hosting a small terrace with an incredible 360° view of the hills and the surrounding landscape.


The commercial area of the dwelling is 220 square meters, plus 4 square meters of the small terrace on the tower.
The development is on 4 levels, connected by a spiral staircase, located inside the highest tower.

Inside we find:
- basement with kitchen and woodshed with also independent entrance;
- ground floor with living room and bathroom;
- second floor with two bedrooms and bathroom;
- second with two bedrooms, small bedroom and bathroom.

The spiral staircase rises beyond the second floor, reaching a charming 4 sq. m. panoramic terrace.


The area is calculated on the basis of the net floor area including interior partitions and increased by 10% incidence for load-bearing walls. The area of the small terrace should be added to the total area, which is counted separately.

State and finishing

Although the exterior walls, in exposed stone, and the roofs are in good condition, the property needs renovation, which will allow a better use of the interior spaces and functionality of the systems, while maintaining the architectural features.
Inside, we still find the old terracotta floors and the wood and tile ceilings.

External areas

Villa dell'Antica Torre, which is fully embraced by a 5-hectare private land with forest, enjoys a very private location, conveniently accessible from the main road via a typical tree-lined driveway.

On the land it is possible, by applying for the appropriate permits, to build a swimming pool.

Use and potential uses

Villa dell'Antica Torre, thanks to its strategic location, is the ideal choice for those looking for a characteristic dwelling immersed in nature, in an area rich in culture and in which to enjoy the food and wine delicacies of Umbria and Tuscany, with the possibility of including it, during periods of non-use, in the international weekly rental circuit.
