Located in the historic centre of Assisi, within walking distance of the famous Basilica of Saint Francis, this delightful house is surrounded by the greenery of its own private gardens, whilst being privileged by a backdrop of rare beauty and historic value.
The property includes the main split-levels house, an outbuilding, further outbuildings used as storage facilities and garage, large established gardens with a swimming pool, all in an enviable panoramic position with views of the surrounding historic ancient town of Assisi. These views include: the Basilica in the foreground, the medieval city’s historic walls, one of the entrance gates of the fortified ancient walls, and a splendid view of the valley below the town of Assisi. The position offered by this property is rarely available, and as such, it renders it unique.
The main house’s north elevation is incorporated into one of the old medieval watch towers that were dotted about the fortified walls, whilst the rest of the elevations, comprising the lower floors, were built during successive periods of the town’s history. The main building’s structure, the outbuildings and the pool are all in excellent structural condition, although having been empty for some years, the whole property is in need of total restyling and modernisation.
The dwelling’s floor space is presented as a split level design, typical of medieval town homes. On the larger lower ground floor there are three points of access, of which one is from a public road and two are from the garden, into the living areas and a magnificent conservatory with panoramic views. Bedrooms and bathrooms are located in the two floors above. In addition, there is one further access from a public road into the property from the first floor.
The large established garden has a wealth of specimens typical of an Umbrian planting scheme, including some beautiful centuries old olive trees. The garden is located on the same level as the living areas and blessed with panoramic views, the pool having also views of the Basilica. The garden has a vehicle access through the main Assisi car park.
Considering the position and historic value of the property, and in view that its remarkable characteristics make it a secure investment, this property could be a charming home, or alternatively be converted into a unique tourist accommodation facility.
