Description
This restored barn and tower was designed and restructured by a leading American Architect, who moved to Italy and purchased and restored a castle in the 1960's, close to Casa dei Artisti, his circle of friends included a reknowned American writer who he restructured Casa dei Artisti to his requirements who then sold the property to a well known American artist and finally passed it on to yet another artist from Germany.
The main structure has a 75 square meter central room almost 6 meters high, big windows and a central fireplace with BBQ that can also run the oil fired central heating system gives this property a special feel that oozes with its artistic history of ownership. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, bathroom, kitchen, the huge central living room, kitchen and garage and a bedroom with a small shower room on the first floor.
The roof was re worked in the 1990's by the current owners and although the technical systems are a little outdated the hand made terracotta bricked floors and general patina create a feeling of simplicity and peace that clearly represents the history of ownership.

An annex of about 50 square meters was improved by the current owners, used as an art studio although has residential status as a one bedroom cottage, sits at the end of the olive grove and could easily have separate vehicle access if required.

There is 7.5 hectares of mixed land including about 2 hectares of mature olives that produce excellent oil that easily covers personal usage, there are fig, Kaki, cherry, almond, wild apple and Walnut and chestnut trees.
The property sits on the edge of a pretty hamlet just four kilometres from the market town of Umbertide with easy access.

Great atmosphere and ideal for those that have an artistic flare and yet wants to be located in a private yet not isolated position just a short drive from a Market town.
