Sunken in the surrounding greenery and suspended between the light blue of the sky and the deep blue of the lake, Tenuta Trasimeno is an oasis of privacy and tranquillity.
The property is located in the vicinity of Passignano sul Trasimeno, less than half hour from Perugia and a few minutes from the dual-carriage way, that in one and a quarter hour leads to Florence and less than two hours to Rome.
Description of buildings
Sitting on a hill top position from where it affords superb views over the lake, the property covers a total area of about 645 sqm gross. There is a main house of 461 sqm, flanked by an annexe of 119 sqm and a garage of 65 sqm.
The master residence is a typical Umbrian-Tuscan country house, over two floors with the traditional exterior stairway.
The ground floor houses a spacious reception room of about 70 sqm, consisting of three interconnecting rooms intermitted by large arches in bricks, adjacent to the kitchen and to an internal staircase leading to the bedrooms on the upper floor.
Also on the ground floor there is a self-contained studio flat with own entrance, consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and living room with kitchen area, very useful to accommodate household staff. This level is completed by two store rooms, a laundry and a conservatory.
The upper floor houses another living room consisting of kitchen with dining area, sitting room with fireplace, glazed loggia, plus three bathrooms and four bedrooms.
Because of the layout and the two kitchens and living areas, this property would be, if desired, particularly suitable to be converted into two residential units (plus the self-contained studio).
At a little distance from the main casale there is the two storey annexe.
The ground floor houses the guests’ apartment consisting of a living room with kitchen area, two bedrooms, a study and a bathroom.
On the first floor there is a charming study with a large window affording wonderful views over the lake.
The property is completed by a garage located away from the house.
The entire property has been immaculatly restored in keeping with the original features and materials, such as the hand made terracotta tiles for the floors, or the old vaulted and beamed cealings.
The buildings are surrounded by grounds of about 1.4 hectares of soft grass lawns extending up to the shady pine woods located behind the property.
A pathway leads away from the lawns, between lavender shrubs and scented plants, to the delightful swimming pool reminiscent of the lake situated in the valley directly below it.
Usage and potential
Tenuta sul Trasimeno is a property in a unique position, ideal for anyone looking for a secluded refuge, from which enjoy the superb views in total privacy, yet at the same time well connected, thanks to the dual carriage way that in less than half hour leads to Perugia.
