Casale Sole a large country 4 bedroom / 4 ensuite bathroom house beautifully set within 8 hectares (20 acres) of grounds. The property is on the Umbrian / Tuscany border, 45 minutes from Perugia International airport, near to the ancient hill town of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina and the vibrant walled town of Citta di Castello.
The house has a large heated pool with a generous terrace and pergola, woodland, an olive grove and wildflower meadow. We have been lucky enough to see within the grounds deer, hare, hoopoo birds and fireflies.
On the ground floor of the house is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a sitting room and a large country kitchen with utility and pantry. All rooms have original exposed stone walls, timbered ceilings and terracotta floors. The kitchen links to a covered dining terrace with views over the Italian countryside. There is a gas BBQ and table tennis table on the terrace.
A stone staircase leads to the first floor that provides a superb double bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom. There is also a magnificent drawing room and library /games room on this floor. Two further double bedrooms both ensuite, one with a bar billiard table are on the top floor.
The local village is a few minutes away with a shop, bar and pharmacy. The beautiful town of Citta di Castello with its historic architecture and churches is a 15 minute drive away and offers a wide range of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants. Weekly markets are also held in the town.
Less than an hours drive away are the stunning towns of Gubbio, Perugia and Assisi. The Tuscan town of Arrezzo with its monthly antiques market is also worth a visit.
