This traditional luxurious Umbrian villa of 250 sqm (8 sleeps, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) was newly built (finished in Spring 2008 and redecorated in May 2015) using authentic materials like stone exposed outside walls and wooden beams. The interior is done in a light modern, but cozy style and can be described as very luxury. The fenced villa is dominantly positioned on top of an important hillside near Lake Trasimeno and Perugia. Enjoying spectacular vast views to Tuscany (Montepulciano). The old Medieval town of Piegaro is only 3 kilometers away where the A1 Motorway (Rome-Florence) is only 20 minutes drive.

The villa is not isolated, but will offer enough privacy. The beautiful pool is positioned within an olive grove and is surrounded by modern garden furniture. The garden consists of large lawns, roses, oleanders, lavender, cypresses and rosemary. A large veranda and separate pergola offer shade at any time of the day. In the basement the internal parking garage is positioned as well as the beautiful traditional wine-cellar. In summer 2015 the current owner acquired extra adjacent land that enlarges the current garden to the mentioned dimensions of approximately 3.849 sqm. Also, building allowance is available for another approximately 180 sqm of new buildings (e.g. poolhouse or guest annex).

Casale Orizzonte is fulltime under Exclusive SpecialUmbria Property Management.
