This old typical Umbrian local stone exposed country house including annexes, to be fully restored, is positioned close to the main road surrounding the Medieval village of Piegaro (350 meters above sea level) which is southwest of Lake Trasimeno. It is located just outside the historical fortified wall of town and is literally just two steps away of its center with all basic services: groceries, butcher, bakery, bars, restaurants, pharmacy, bank and church.

The views from the property are on undisturbed green hills, horizontally into a local valley and upwards to Monte Arale (853 meters above sea level).

The name 'House of the fish men' relates to ancient times when the house was located at a small lake and therefore frequented/lived in by fish men.

The property for sale is to be fully restored, spread over 3 floors. At ground floor level is a garage and a cellar; at the first floor one can find the entrance with old wood stove, kitchen and living room with fireplace; at the second floor are 2 bedrooms. There is the possibility of expanding the building and eventually construct a swimming pool.

Ideal for those seeking a home with older Umbrian peasant features, comfortable, completely independent but still very close to town.
