Upupa Project

This property offers fabulous choices for those looking for the excitement of customising a house and garden while being assured that the setting is already just right.

Upupa is within walking distance of the village of Parrano yet its harmonious setting on a flattened-off hilltop is fully immersed in the natural beauty of this part of Italy’s green, rolling heartland, offering incredible, far-reaching views.

Currently used as a storage space for the surrounding vegetable garden and olive grove, the property is at a builder’s finish – some of the internal walls have been plastered and the first-floor windows have been installed. There is a private well and the property is also connected to mains water and electricity. Otherwise, it is a blank canvas, offering an exciting choice of materials, colours and systems.

There are further opportunities outside, where there is scope for a pool and the perfect setting for a landscaped garden. Upupa has all the excitement of starting from scratch without being quite so daunting.

The mentioned “starting from EUR 1,150 mio” price comprises an estimate of the total cost to incur in a project to come to a turn-key delivery of the property: construction (renovation, new build or restoration pending the situation) included the building’s structure where necessary as well as all finishings including systems and swimming pool, landscaping and planting of garden, technical fees (e.g. architect, engineer, surveyor), project & design management by SpecialUmbria, all interior and exterior furniture and decorations.
