A beautiful family home in the Umbrian hills
Sant’Antonio was originally an Augustinian monastery built in the early 1500’s. The two wings of the monastery, now two separate properties, were built around a central courtyard and incorporated a signal tower dating back to the 1100’s.
The wing for sale is a beautiful, welcoming family home that retains many of its original monastic features. It is about 600 m2 spread over three levels.
The ground floor, originally the wine cellar, is a large independent apartment with two bedrooms, a combined kitchen/dining room, a two sided fireplace, large living room, smaller sitting room and a bathroom. It also has its own courtyard and barbecue.
The main house overlooks a large, well-established, terraced garden with a variety of fruit trees, a barbecue and magnificent views down the valley and across the surrounding hills. Wild asparagus and truffles also flourish in the garden. The first floor has a large living room with a fireplace, kitchen, a dining room with another fireplace, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, music room, linen room and a laundry/cellar. On the top floor there is another large living room, a second dining room with a dumb waiter, a study, an attic, four bedrooms, a bathroom and another toilet.
There are two wells on the property and a large field adjoins the main garden. There is plenty of room for a swimming pool, an orchard, a small vineyard, a couple of horses – about 2,300 m2. The other wing of the original monastery does not overlook either the garden or the field.
Property of great historical interest, not far from services, near Perugia, Sant’Egidio airport, the main communication routes, as well as Lake Trasimeno and the Antognolla golf club.
