A five-bedroom property with huge renovation potential that balances its peaceful rural location with its close proximity to the vibrant city of Perugia

Colombella is an exciting prospect: a well-proportioned country villa in a wonderful location that is a renovation dream.

Set in the breathtaking landscape of Italy’s green heartland and with all the merits of rural living, the house is just over half an hour from Perugia, a university town packed full of glorious galleries, restaurants, bars and shops, with a thriving cultural heart.

The house has excellent credentials, including easy access, a spacious garage, a large garden, a pizza oven, big, light rooms, as well as fireplaces, making it a property with year-round appeal. A blank canvas in terms of interior design and with permission to put in a pool and landscape the garden, this is a property that the buyer can renovate to their specific taste and requirements, realising its huge potential.

Currently there is one bathroom on the ground floor and one on the first floor. The number of bathrooms and their layout can be changed during renovation.

Living room

The large living room is connected to the dining area and the kitchen by a series of original brick columns. The whole of the ground floor is typical of Umbrian houses of the time and local materials such as the wooden ceiling beams and the big open fireplace offer a warm welcome. The buyer can specify the internal layout and design of the living room(s) during renovation.

Other rooms

There’s a conservatory on the ground floor with access to the garden that would make a lovely second sitting or dining room. There is a porch at the back of the house that has a brick, wood-fired oven, making it the perfect place to dine outside. There’s a garage that can also be used for storage.



The property is accessed by a gate and a pretty driveway. A spacious garden that is largely lawn surrounds most of the property, with woods and a stream nearby. There is a palpable sense of being surrounded by nature.


The property is connected to the electricity mains while water comes from a private well. There is a septic tank for sewage and there is the possibility of adding a GPL tank for gas.



Other features

Direct environment

There are a few houses nearby but privacy is guaranteed thanks to the beautiful trees that surround part of the house.
