Description of buildings

This property includes a 420 sq.m villa, which results from the expansion of an antique watchtower, a renovated 99 sq.m outbuilding (to be completed) and a 113 sq.m building to be renovated.

The Villa

420 sq.m (net saleable area)| kitchen/dining room | 2 living rooms | 6 bedrooms | 5 bathrooms
The villa develops over three levels:
- the ground floor includes a central formal entrance that leads to a living room with a fireplace on the left and a large kitchen/dining room with a fireplace on the right. The staircase at the entrance leads to the upper floors and semi-basement.
- the first floor includes another large living room with a fireplace, a small study, and two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
- the second floor includes a large master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two wardrobe rooms, three bedrooms and a bathroom.
- the semi-basement includes four ancillary rooms (storages and utility rooms).

The outbuilding

99 sq.m (net saleable area) | 2 rooms
The outbuilding is a few metres away from the villa. A high stone wall with battlements at the top is connected to it so as to create a private courtyard: the perfect location for a swimming pool.
The building develops over two floors connected with an internal staircase and an external one, making them independent.
Currently, this outbuilding includes a cellar, a utility room, and a storage room.
It has been structurally renovated, and once complete, it can be transformed into a useful and comfortable guest house.


Additional building

113 sq.m (net saleable area) | 1 room | small utility room
This property also includes another building (113 sq.m) that is to be renovated. Currently, it’s used as a garage.

The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.

The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.

The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.

State and finishing

Dimora Nobile Il Castelletto is the result of the expansion and transformation of an old watchtower built between the 10th and 11th centuries. It became a beautiful dwelling only in the 18th century.
The villa has been recently renovated and is in excellent condition.
The renovation maintained most of its original features: external stone walls, vaulted brick ceilings on the ground floor, exposed beams and tiles on the upper floors, terracotta flooring on the ground floor (wooden flooring on the other floors) and stone fireplaces.
The outbuilding can be transformed into a guest house. It has already been renovated but needs to be completed based on your requirements. There’s also the possibility of building a swimming pool.
These works would increase the number of beds and enhance the value of the property and its potential if you decide to rent it.

External areas

This property is also surrounded by a 10-hectare south-facing plot of land.
The lush park that surrounds the buildings is rich in trees and ornamental plants. It’s the perfect place for moments of relaxation, outdoor lunches and dinners and parties.
The plot of land includes an olive grove with about 150 trees and arable land.

Use and potential uses

This property is perfect for those who are looking for a historic dwelling among Umbria’s hills. It’s ideal as a private residence or can be included in weekly holiday rental circuits. Being close to Umbria’s and Tuscany’s main historical centres, Dimora Nobile Il Castelletto is the perfect starting point for daily excursions.
