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. The property is 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.
