Property of the week: a rustic villa in the Italian countryside

This villa has spectacular panoramic views
26 November 2021,

There are a wide variety of reasons to move to the Italian countryside, from the beautiful landscapes that provide jaw-dropping views, to the sense of tranquility you can find surrounded by nature and plantlife, from the fabulous rustic aesthetic of Italian country houses, to the simple pleasure of Italy's fantastic climate. This week's property, an elegant villa in a commanding position with spectacular 360° views, can offer all of that and more. While it is quite out of the way, its central location on the Italian peninsula means that it is sufficiently isolated to live a life in perfect tranquility, while still being within driving range of Rome, Florence, and Terni

The property consists of two buildings, the main villa with 600m2 of built space over two floors, and a secondary building with an additional 150m2. Between the two buildings there are a total of 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The rustic exterior is perfectly in keeping with the surrounding countryside, and hides an extravagantly elegant interior design that wouldn't be out of place in a royal palace. And for any with green fingers, the 13 hectare plot of land that comes with the villa has enough space to keep you busy, with fruit trees, olive groves, countless flowerbeds, and a beautifull maintained Italian garden. 

The secondary building would make a spacious guesthouse

In the main villa, off the entrance hall on the ground floor we can find the beautiful lounge area with a stone fireplace, a library, a guest bathroom, spacious dining area, and the gorgeous rustic kitchen, with exposed wooden beams, flagstone flooring, and wood burning stove, contrasted against the modern appliances you couldn't live without. The kitchen has direct access through several large sets of french door to a small garden area with a beautiful stone fountain. Off to either side of the main body of the villa are two separate wings, one with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom, plus an adjoined anteroom, the other with a pair of bedrooms and another bathroom. 

Upstairs in the main villa we can find another two spacious bedrooms, plus the master suite, all elegantly finished and with en-suite bathrooms. The secondary building, which would serve perfectly as a guesthouse, is also built on two levels, with a living room, kitchen, and a veranda overlooking the garden on the ground floor, and a pair of bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. In addition, down a short path through the beautiful gardens, not far from the main villa, is the gorgeous pool area. The swimming pool itself has counter current swimming, and the space around it, with fantastic panoramic views, includes a covered area complete with a living space with sofas and armchairs, a dining table, a dressing room, and even a small kitchenette. In addition to all of this, the villa has a spacious garage, a cellar, and a separate laundry room.

This property has everything that you could possibly want for a relaxed life in the Italian countryside, and so much more. If living in this beautiful villa looks like the lifestyle that you want, don't wait long to take a look. The property is currently for sale on idealista for 2,400,000 euros.
