Country House with Pool on Tuscany/Umbria Border near Perugia

Situated on approximately 5 acres overlooking the majestic countryside of Tuscany and Umbria and Lake Trasimeno, Il Giardino is a beautiful 19th Century country house that was restored and renovated from top to bottom by local craftsmen using the highest quality, original materials. The house is positioned on the hillside outside the charming walled town of Paciano, which was named by the Italian government as one of Italy's most beautiful towns. The house and its numerous terraces and patios all have breathtaking views, making this one of the most unique and desirable estates in the Italian countryside.
The house's location provides a quiet, private retreat while being centrally located between Florence and Rome on the Tuscany/Umbria border. Perugia, and its famous University for Foreigners, is located just across the lake. A short drive takes you to many other places of interest including Montepulciano, Cortona, Siena, and Assisi. Additionally, the high speed train stops at the local station in Chiusi, allowing arrival in the center of Florence in 1 hour or Rome in 1.5 hours.
The original terra cotta floors, oak beamed ceilings and charming period characteristics are combined with all of the desired modern conveniences, including a large contemporary kitchen, satellite television, and an electronic gate.

The swimming pool was added in 2008 and is tucked into the hillside below the house, providing privacy and stunning views. A lighted stone pathway leads you to the pool and the beautifully constructed stone hardscape that surrounds it, which includes a soothing fountain and a built-in solar-heated shower.

The house has a local caretaker who takes care of the pool, garden, olive trees, and land.
