Villa La Veduta
Very panoramic recently restored villa with pool located in Montemelino, Lake Trasimeno, at short distance to Perugia.
The house itself is rendered and being a relatively new build has large windows giving a lot of natural light and the good ceiling heights give the house an airy feel. The ground floor is used by the current owner and it has a good size modern kitchen, a living dining area, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The upper floor is accessed externally and is divided into two large self-contained, one bedroom apartments which are currently used for guests but could also be used as holiday rental. The house could easily be made into a 4 or even 5 bedroom house with an internal staircase.
The property is surrounded by an easy to maintain garden on the 2,650 square metre plot with a host of carefully chosen plants that include forty olive trees most of which are ancient and include 7 varieties giving ample oil for personal use. There are seating areas around the garden to enjoy this truly unique outdoor experience. The garden has automatic irrigation.
The 13.5 x 4 metre pool has a sand liner to give the pool water a Caribbean ocean colour and has a salt chlorination treatment system. All the land is fenced and the access gates to the parking area are above the house and garden.
The villa has a unique location, nestled amongst mature olive trees on the edge of a small Hamlet with a church and classic Umbrian stone cottages accessed by a tarmac road that leads only to a castle meaning no through traffic. Apart from the natural unspoilt beauty of the hamlet, the house is south facing and benefits from total privacy, yet is just a short walk from a typical Umbrian restaurant that is open all year, it’s a real treat to have a neighbour serving truffles, specialist homemade pasta dishes and grilled meat cooked over an open fire at lunch and dinner It’s a short drive down to the village supermarket or a slightly longer one to the bigger shops and buzzing city of Perugia, yet in Montemelino you feel immersed in the countryside and oblivious to city life. The views are outstanding with Solomeo, home of the Brunello Cucinelli’s clothing empire, in view from the terrace and the pool.
