This very nice former farmhouse with old annex originally built at the beginning of 1900, is situated in a very strategic position, which we have found very appealing. Very close to the beautiful town of Panicale, a true gem of Umbria rich in art and history, and almost at a walking distance from Tavernelle, rich in all kind of facilities.

The house, which is completely independent but not secluded, as some houses are in the neighbourhood, may be reached via a well-maintained road.

The property for sale is to be fully restored and spreads over 2 floors currently connected via an external staircase. At ground floor level we find the old stables, an old typical fireplace used in the past to bake the bread for the big family of the farmers and an old storage room. On the first floor, there is big kitchen with a big fireplace, three bedrooms and one bathroom. The annex, located in front of the house, can be used as a separate unit, or can be added to the main building upon restoration. The foresaid layout of the house can be fully changed according to a tailored restoration project.

The land outside allows creating a nice garden with pool, overlooking the small valley.

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

Why this is Special
Very nice typical house with private land, strategically located, not far from villages.
