The property has been recently restored, carefully preserving the traditional features such as the characteristic wooden beams, cotto floors and travertine stonework. The estate dates from the 17th century and includes a 2 storey annex, swimming pool and mature gardens. The true highlight of this property has to be the views, its situation, high up on the mountain allows uninterrupted views over the forests and valleys of lush countryside down to the 15th century hamlet of Santa Giuliana and as far as Assisi and Monte Subasio. In perfect seclusion yet not isolated as there are are a few other properties in the neighbourhood and a monastery on the summit of the mountain, if views are the first point on your wish list then this property is for you.
