A wonderful and spacious house in this stunning hilltop town, with fabulous views over the Umbrian countryside and a big and beautiful garden.
Il Giardino is a picture-perfect townhouse in the centre of Città della Pieve, a pretty hilltop town that balances everyday ease with Umbrian charm.
Set over three floors, the house’s character is formed by the materials and its layout. Terracotta floors, ancient wooden beams and vaulted brick ceilings, as well as pietra serena steps, tell the building’s history.
There are four separate entrances to the property: the first leads from the street straight into the private garden which is brimming with jasmine, roses and mature trees and is large enough for a dining terrace and lounge area and with still more space to play with. A second door on the same street leads to the two bedrooms on the first floor. The other two entrances are opposite each other: one gives access to a service area and a small gym, while the other opens onto a passage that leads to one of the sitting areas.
The views from the house are magnificent, as is its location. There are shops and restaurants on the doorstep and some of Umbria’s most beautiful spots are just a short drive away, including Perugia, Assisi and Lake Trasimeno.
