Charming villa located in a private and peaceful area 10 km from the Spoleto town centre, in Monteluco, Spoleto’s sacred wood, which, during early Christianity, became home to a colony of religious hermits – primarily Syrian – who used the natural caves and grottoes found on the flanks of the mountain and in the sacred wood itself as places of spiritual retreat and contemplation. Reached by a short section of private road, the property is entered through a gateway leading into a spacious parking area. The front door of the villa is up a few steps and to one side of the building and there are various terraced areas all around the house including a portico with columns which provides shaded space for outdoor living and a barbecue area. The main entrance leads into a hallway, then leading into a corridor, to one side of which is a sitting room with large windows and a large open fireplace; on the other side of the corridor there is a dining room, a kitchen and a pantry. On this ground floor there is also a toilet. A stairway in the hall leads up to the first floor and at the top there is a bathroom, then there is another corridor, off which to one side is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom, enjoying access to a terrace above the portico with stunning views of the valley; to the other side there are two more bedrooms, one also with en suite bathroom. The stairway continues up to the second floor, where there are two more bedrooms and one bathroom, plus a store room. This floor requires some updating work. Back in the hallway, a set of steps lead down to the basement. Here there is a garage, which
is accessed from the parking area, a laundry room and a small cellar. At the far end of the house there is a lovely belvedere annex. There is no central heating throughout the house as the house has been used primarily as a summer house until now, however plumbing for radiators is already in place.
The nearest big town is Spoleto, but in Monteluco there are various hotels and a few bars.
The land included in the sale is 1 hectare, all woodland, completely fenced in.
The villa enjoys stunning views of the Spoleto valley.
