This handsome stone and brick building of about 300 years old was used by monks to live in whilst working the land. The building was first restored in 1986, creating living space on the first floor providing up to 5 bedrooms and spacious living areas. The ground floor is currently used as a cantina, garage space and for storage but has large open spaces and vaulted ceilings which could create wonderful reception rooms if a larger house was required. With a hobby vineyard, 10 ancient olive trees providing ample olive oil for the year and a perfectly placed swimming pool that gets the best of the views to Lake Trasimeno and Castiglione del Lago, this could be your ideal holiday home.

Area:
Situated in a secluded but not isolated position on the edge of a small hamlet. Badia is less than 9km from Castiglione del Lago where all major services can be found as well as great restaurants, shops and many festivals throughout the year. Citta della Pieve, Cortona and Perugia can all be reached quickly and easily and with regular flights from Perugia airport to ever increasing destinations this is the ideal area for short breaks throughout the year. Views stretch to the lake and town as well as across fields to nearby Tuscany.

Land:
Approximately 0.5 of a hectare is included in the sale, fully fenced and with electric gates leading to the driveway. The large lawn area sweeps around the house and is dotted with ancient olive trees that provide around 40 litres of oil a year. The vineyard is the perfect size for a wine enthusiast, with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 70% Sangiovese grapes producing 365 bottles a year. There is a lake facing terrace and pergola to the rear of the house, perfect for shaded summer lunches or evenings watching the stars. The pool is placed to gain the best of the views, measuring 12 x 6 m and bordered with lavender.
