Casa Pompeo is located in a wonderful hillside position with fabulous views yet is only 400 metres off the hardtop road running from San Secondo to Monte Santa Maria Tiberina. Originally a fortified tower, the property has been developed and enlarged to provide beautiful 5 bedroomed accommodation that can be utilised as a large family home or as 3 independent units with their own private outdoor areas and access.  In fact, it has been run as a home with comfortable rental/B&B business very successfully.  During restoration, the original features have been incorporated, fabulous chestnut beams, terracotta flooring and in the oldest part of the house the wonderful curved stone vaulted ceiling has been restored.  The result is a house that is sympathetic to the past but with up-to-date amenities creating a perfect blend of the old and the new.

Constructed on three levels, the house offers very comfortable accommodation. On the upper floors is the owner’s home with access from a spacious open loggia to the entrance hall, a farmhouse style kitchen /dining area, a comfortable sitting room, a large study and one bedroom with bathroom en suite on the top floor of the old tower is the master bedroom with bathroom en suite.  On the ground floor, which can be closed off from the upper floor, there are a further three large bedrooms all with vast bathrooms and two kitchenettes, allowing the possibility of letting these as one or two units.  Each of the bedrooms has access outside and their own private area in the garden.  Also on the ground floor is a large, useful utility/storage room, with bathrooms facilities.   The accommodation has been meticulously maintained and beautifully decorated using earthy Umbrian hues.

The well-stocked gardens are beautiful, easily maintained and expertly landscaped.  There are many sheltered spots to sit out and enjoy the lovely views and the sitting area under the large pergola, with easy access from the upper or lower kitchen, also has a built in barbeque grill.  A small olive grove has been planted and the other plants are indigenous or suited to the local conditions.
There is a perfectly maintained gravel ‘bocciadromo’ (‘bocce’ court – the Italian version of bowls) and the washing line is cunningly concealed.   The majority of the garden (9,000 sq.mts) is fenced although there is a further 1,000 sq.mts below the house where there are some huge fig trees and wild cherries.
It would be possible to build a swimming pool below the house offering the possibility of unrivalled relaxation with fantastic views.
There is a ruined tobacco barn in the gardens which could be demolished and permissions would be forthcoming to create further accommodation or a pool house.

There is mains electricity, telephone with broadband internet, commune water, rainwater collection tank for watering the garden.  GPL gas tank underground in the garden.

PRICE: Euro 750,000
