The contemporary farmhouse blends traditional Umbrian architecture with that of sophisticated contemporary space. The property has been built with today’s needs and demands in mind while at the same time fitting perfectly into its surroundings. This Umbrian farmhouse for sale, which was finished in 2010, is a modern building with today’s sought after comforts that include local traditional interior finishes.
The property is located in Umbria about 7km from Amelia and 10km from Narni. Both these towns date back to before the Romans. Narni has also been the subject of novels and stories by various authors including C.S. Lewis, who took this ancient Latin name to develop the stories of seven fantasy novels, for instance, ” The Chronicles of Narnia “. l’ Incoronazione della Vergine by Domenico Ghirlandaio and l’ Annunciazione by Benozzo Gozzoli both from the 1400’s are among the most famous Italian masterpieces preserved in the town’s museum at the Palazzo Eroli.
Amelia by contrast, is home to the ancient 4th century B.C. polygonal walls and those of the Roman and medieval era but there are also more recent works housed in the churches and civic buildings. At the top of the town, and visible from a distance, stands the dodecahedron tower dating back to 1000 A.D which commemorates the freedom of the town. The Cathedral which is adjacent to the tower retains the standards taken from the Turks during the battle of Lepanto in 1571. Another gem is Amelia’s wooden theatre dating from the end of the 1700’s where several films including ” The Adventures of Pinocchio ” by Comencini were shot.
The Umbrian farmhouse for sale would be an ideal home for enjoying Italian culture and also be within walking distance of numerous historic centres. Apart from Narni and Amelia, Rome can be reached in about 35 minutes by train as well as its Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. This is as well as tourist places of interest including Todi, Viterbo, Tarquinia, Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto.
The contemporary farmhouse is 400 square metres in size over three floors with an annex of 40 square metres. The garden is accessed by the ground floor’s two large windows where there is a large and bright living room with fireplace. In front, there is a small staircase leading to the dining room which also has a fireplace. The kitchen is visible from the room to the left which gives access to two bedrooms with bathrooms and through a spiral staircase to the upstairs study/bedroom, from where you can enjoy the surrounding panoramic views.
From the living room there is access to the semi basement via a staircase where there are two bedrooms with bathroom, a dressing area and a fitness area with sauna.
Externally, the farmhouse has been built using local stone and handmade bricks respecting the Umbrian traditional architectural style. Internally, there are exposed wooden beamed ceilings and roof with tiles. The floors echo the traditional style by using contemporary stone.
The property boasts a swimming pool as well as a Jacuzzi hot tub where you can relax in private and enjoy the views of the Umbrian hills.
There is electricity, water and an underground GPL gas tank for the heating system. As for a telephone landline, this can easily be requested by the desired telephone company.
The contemporary farmhouse is ideal for its location and proximity to transport services. It would be a perfect home for those who love seclusion and tranquillity as well as for those who want a high standard tourist property.
