House for sale at € 390000 in UmbertideName/Address:
Casale Mussino is an ancient stone building, presumably a former watch tower dating back to year 1300; stunningly preserved and entirely made of exposed stone, the edifice is in a good structural condition; systems have been partly updated, walls and roof have been strengthened, although roof is not propertly insulated.
Casale Mussino is found in a peaceful, secluded green valley at short distance ( 3 Km) from the village of Pierantonio, Umbertide county. The E45 motorway is a 5 minute ride, Perugia is a 25 minute drive.
The entire property covers 14 acres (6 hectares) and include a gorgeous pond, a mature black truffle growing area, an olive grove with 60 trees, pasture land, woodland and a lawn around the house.
The building sits on a paramount hill, boasting splendid views over the valley underneath.
On the ground floor lie a beautiful living /dining room with an old fireplace, a master bedroom, a smaller bedroom, 2 bathrooms (one with a huge tub). In addition, there are 2 storage rooms with independent access from the outside.
The first floor can be accessed either via the typical external stairs or via an internal staircase; there lie a wide living/dining room with fireplace, the kitchen, pantry and 2 bedrooms.
The most striking aspect of Casale Mussino, aside from the views, certainly is its authentic feel, reflected by genuine old timber beams on the ceilings, stone-exposed walls also on the inside and old terracotta tiles on the floors. No traces of dampness or moisture are visible on the walls.
The house can be immediately lived in, although some cosmetic and improvement touches are certainly needed to make the property impeccable; bathrooms need a complete remaking, windows and shutters need to be redone or restored and the electrical system needs to be terminated.
Casale Mussino has been conceived to house two independent apartments, but it can equally well be used as a single dwelling.
The property is connected to a LPG tank, to electrical supply and is served by a private water well; there is a septic tank.
The heating system has been improved and is working; the sistems need to be checked and certified.
Location, genuineness and views make Casale Mussino a top rank property, in our view.
