Cuor di Leone
A stone farmhouse that celebrates beautiful local materials, including red brick local to Lake Trasimeno, chestnut wood beams and cotto floors, all looking out onto an incredible view.
Cuor di Leone is a well-appointed two-storey farmhouse that occupies a rural, hilltop position. It’s also just a short stroll away from the pretty streets of Città della Pieve – close enough, even, for a morning espresso.
The house was fully restored in 2000 by the current owners. They used beautiful natural materials such as chestnut wood and cotto tiles, while adhering to earthquake building regulations. The internal doors are chestnut, as are the shutters and the windows, which are all double-glazed and have mosquito nets.
The ground floor is dedicated to the living areas. The rooms are wide and spacious and arched windows and doorways provide lots of light and maintain a lovely sense of flow through the house, while the staircase from the main living room has wide, shallow steps, furthering the feeling of space and grandeur.
The four bedrooms are located on the first floor, along with three bathrooms, and a traditional external staircase and balcony leads from one of the bedrooms.
The garden that encircles the property has mature trees and plants and fabulous views over the rolling Umbrian hills. Cuor di Leone is a wonderful property that offers the space of the countryside with the convenience of a short walk into a delightful town.
