Casale il Noce

Privately located well restored farmhouse with stunning wide views in the heart of the Niccone Valley

The current owners of Casale Il Noce, an Umbrian farmhouse, restored the property in 2011, respecting a high standard and keeping a lot of authentic detail. In total the house has four double bedrooms. One may also find a large sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and technical room. The tiles throughout the house are all hand made “cotto”.  The internal layout has been carefully considered to produce a well balanced family home. The entrance opens to a spacious hall with storage cupboard and WC and tiled staircase to lower floor (which consists of an apartment with sitting room, double bedroom, bathroom and private terrace), passing through an Umbrian square “arch” with original stones to a panoramic formal dining area. From the dining area there are small lit tiled stairs leading down to a large fitted open plan kitchen/breakfast room with outstanding views  and up via a small lit tiled staircase to a stunning sitting room with stone fireplace and wood burner. There is also a utility/technical room with sink and washing machine as well as the operating systems for heating and power. Also from the dining area there are lit tiled stairs leading up to the living room with open fireplace and access to a panoramic terrace and gardens. The floors are are all ventilated underneath but are underfloor heated in 6 control zones. The tiles throughout the house are traditional  Umbrian light brown handmade clay, but are coloured very light to enhance the brightness in the house. They are from an original roman tilemaker in Orvieto.

At upper floor level one may find three double bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms. The master bedroom enjoys a magnificent view.


Three bathrooms, all quite modern, are en-suite and located on the first floor. One bathroom is also present on the lower ground in the separate unit.


The kitchen/breakfast room is very well equipped and provides nice panoramic views.

Living room

The living room with open fireplace also offers access to a dining terrace and gardens.

Other rooms

The lower ground floor consists of a separate self-contained guest apartment with living room, a large bedroom, a shower room and access to a private covered terrace.



The house is surrounded by 4 hectares of land and the natural garden surrounding the property has some lawns that can easily be maintained, some nice terraces and a beautiful large nut tree as landmark. The remaining land consists of natural park of woodland and pasture. There are several ideal positions for the new owner to construct a swimming pool with excellent views. There are no objections to obtain building permission for a pool.


It has a modern energy efficient heating system providing virtually zero cost energy and all modern conveniences. The underfloor heating system functions from a wood burning furnace supplemented by gas if required. In reality the gas is rarely used apart from cooking. The system is based in a technical room that has the solar panel controls, the furnace (Aspiratronic) and the heating control, a heat bank system (DPS) that enables all heat from all sources to be stored. The system allows drinking hot water from taps. The technical room is also a general utility room and is fully plumbed. Electricity and hot water supported by solar panels. All windows and front double door are constructed using carefully selected chestnut in the traditional way, but with full double glazing. The house is in a position known as the “area of good water” from ancient times and the house is supplied by a well that never runs dry.
