Casa Turner is situated across from the Spoleto Rocca (the mediaeval castle), and the Ponte delle Torri, the old aqueduct, and enjoys a stunning and uninterrupted view of the most magnificent Spoleto sights and of the old town. This is a historic building dating back to 1577, also the site from where the painter Turner made a drawing of the Ponte delle Torri which is now in the Tate Gallery in London.
This antique house is on 3 levels and is accessed from the top, on arrival there is a short private driveway, then there is a gate and a private car parking space; a set of steps leads down to the various levels of the house. On the ground floor there is an entrance that leads directly into a spacious dining room, and through a very old beautiful stone archway, to a kitchen with a spectacular view. On this same level there is a studio/bedroom with an en suite bathroom. A set of steps from this level leads down to a lower terrace, below which there is a boiler room with a boiler system for heating and hot water, and a tool shed. Back on the ground level, a comfortable spiral staircase leads up to the first floor, where there is a very spacious living room – this is really like 2 rooms, separated by an open door – another bedroom and bathroom. Also at this level there is a door leading directly to the outside. A few more steps lead to the second floor, where there is a loft with a very high ceiling, which can be used as a third bedroom, and there is one more bathroom. Off the loft there is an upper terrace, again and as on each level of the house, enjoying the most stunning views towards Spoleto most distinctive and monumental sites.
There are terracotta floors throughout the whole house. There is gas central heating and there are radiators.
A swimming pool can be created in the garden adjacent to the property.
The olive grove of 1,490 sq m has mature olive trees. The land is very nicely landscaped and plumbed in for automatic sprinklers. There is also some woodland for a total of 10,809 sq m.
There is a telephone line in the house with broadband Wi-Fi internet access, as well as a satellite system.
The owners can consider selling with the furniture if that is of interest to a buyer, to be negotiated in addition to the house price.
