State of repair:
The main houses retains many of its original features and the traditional characteristics of a rural property in Umbria. Externally the building is made of lovely local stone and internally the floors on the first floor are all covered with original terracotta tiles, and all the ceilings have exposed wooden beams with terracotta panels in between. On the ground floor, which has been used as animal stalls and a storage area, there are currently no floor tiles.
The two agricultural annexes have the same original features as the main house.
The property already has all the main services such as water and electricity. As well as the mains water supply the property has a well which is in working order. The telephone is awaiting connection and requires only a phonecall to make the line usable. The property is currently heated using the fireplace and a woodburning stove. As part of the restoration it would be possible to install a g.p.l. gas tank in the grounds and therefore add an additional heating system inside the property.
