San Biagio was built about 300 years ago as a working monastery, where the monks worked the land and worshipped in a chapel nearby. The current owners purchased the property and began to restore it in 1986, preserving original features where possible. The property is fenced all round and has electric gates. It occupies about half a hectare of land which includes: – a mature vineyard producing 365 bottles of red wine per year (San Giovese/Cabinet Sauvignon) – olive trees which produce about 40 litres of virgin olive oil per year – a 12 x 6 metre swimming pool with surrounding terraces The house is on two floors, each of 225 square metres plus extensive loft space. The living space is currently arranged as follows:- Ground floor- garage space for two cars with attractive terracotta arched ceilings, which would become a very attractive feature if planning permission were obtained to transform this area into living space. There are storage rooms for logs and garden equipment. Importantly there is a cantina or winery with wine making equipment including a French oak barrel and wine storage space. There is a summer kitchen leading onto a tiled terrace with pergola overlooking Lake Trasimeno and surrounding hills. Last but not least there are a cloakroom, a boiler room, a utility room, as well as a secure living/sleeping space for dogs with an original wood fired bread oven still to be restored. The first floor is reached by two sets of stairs, one external leading up to a sun soaked terrace and one internal wooden staircase. The first floor comprises: a fully fitted kitchen, the main living room with original oak ceiling beams, 3 bedrooms, one with en suite bath/ shower room, a further bath/shower room, a study which could become a 4th bedroom if required. There is a second living room / library also with its original ceiling beams. From an entrance hall wooden steps lead up to the loft space. San Biagio is at the edge of a hamlet and enjoys privacy as well as the security provided by friendly local neighbours. All the windows enjoy spectacular views towards Castiglione del Lago and the surrounding unspoiled hilly landscape. Perugia and its international airport with 6 flights a week to London can be reached in under an hour, the famous town of Cortona is nearby and there are fast rail and road links to Rome and Florence within short driving distance.
