Magnificent property immersed in a park of absolute significance (over 3.5 acres) considered among the most beautiful creations of the world famous landscape architect Pietro Porcinai. Well positioned on the top of a hill with a view of the ancient village of Corciano, “Il Giardino del Porcinai” enjoys excellent privacy, although it is easily accessible both from the main motorway and from Perugia, Magione and Lago Trasimeno. In very good condition, this property has a total of 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, divided between the main villa and the two annexes, and is characterized not only by the marvelous park, but also by a unique winter garden, swimming pool, pond, Jacuzzi and tennis court.
Villa “Il Giardino del Porcinai” is immersed in a garden of majestic beauty, which still today precisely follows the original design of the landscape architect Pietro Porcinai, of whom it is probably considered the most beautiful creation in Umbria.
Closed by two electric gates immersed in the vegetation, the property is barely visible from the outside and, in harmony with the ideas of Porcinai, little by little it is revealed: the initial understatement is preferred to the immediate scenographic impact.
Dating back to 1700, the villa can be reached from an entrance on the parking level, a characteristic barrel-vaulted corridor that leads to the stairways going to the upper floor: here there is a large kitchen, a guest w,c, a double living room with ancient fireplace, a dining area with characteristic arched windows and the spectacular heated winter garden, an ideal continuation of the surrounding garden, separated by sliding glass windows that are grafted onto the pool; this latter, served by separate changing rooms and w.c., is marvellously integrated with the beautiful pond, adorned with water lilies and lotus flowers.
From the winter garden you enter the lower level where a beautiful playroom with very bright windows was built, which also includes a nineteenth-century billiard table; on the same level there is also the SPA, with hammam, sauna, bathroom and showers.
On the first floor of the villa there are 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, while on the second floor there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The caretaker’s apartment is located at the lower level of the villa, overlooking the parking area, and includes the dining/living area, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Completely independent and equipped with its own independent driveway, there is also a beautiful renovated watch tower, which comprises s a kitchen / dining room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property also features a nice panoramic Jacuzzi, a tennis court; there is also a 120 sq m annex.
Currently inserted into the prestigious tourist rental circuit, Villa “il Giardino del Porcinai” is a magnificent residence; the presence of the deatched tower and the separate residential unit on the lower floor of the villa allows for having a resident caretaker inside the property.
Villa “il Giardino del Porcinai” is located a short distance from services, from the junction of the Bettole-Perugia motorway and less than 25 minutes by car from the center of Perugia; all the main attractions of the area (Lake Trasimeno, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Spoleto, Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza …) can be reached in less than an hour by car.
