Summary

La Ferrosa is a really unique property! Fully enshrined in a medieval borgo made by 5 houses, in a very dominant position with an amazing view not only onto Campello Alto, but also fully immersed in the so-called Fascia Olivata, the world famous zone from Assisi to Spoleto fully covered with olive groves.

What really amazes of the house is how the architecture plays with the natural space where it is located. Created by a German architect and his wife, a sculptor from New York: they have created their own Italian dream here, with great respect for the old building combined with a contemporary design and unconventional iron made art pieces and installation (from here the name Ferrosa...iron in English), including all technical comfort such as floor heating. In addition, the surrounding garden with its various terraces has been designed by a renowned Berlin landscape architect and reflects the same ideas. The garden is an explosion of fig trees, succulent plants and cactus. The pool is obtained from a stone basin, that reminds a natural crystal clear pond integrated into a natural rock terrace. In fact, the 3600 m² of land are divided in a landscaped garden (1600 m²) and an olive grove with additional parking opportunity. The garden invites you to marvel, linger and relax, with a multitude of ideas and situations:  an outdoor kitchen allows sunset barbecues, a greenhouse is used as winter garden for lemon and orange trees but also as a tearoom on sunny winter days, a fig tree has become a natural tend, powerful agaves define the ramparts of the hill and colourful irises turn April into a feast for the eye.

The seemingly endless views continue over the gentle hills of the Valle Umbra and, in the distance, to the well-known city of Spoleto and the Apennines beyond. 

The house is divided into two separate autonomous apartments. Due to the hillside position, both apartments are connected directly to a garden area with inside and outside stairs.

Why this is Special
Ideally south-facing oriented, La Ferrosa is flooded with light and offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets in one of the marvellous spots of Umbria. The Monte Serano in the north protects the property from north winds and creates a mild microclimate during winter, whereas the summer nights here are pleasantly cooler than in the valley.
