Property Description

Molino Di Scelta

Molino di Scelta is located in a tranquil valley close to the 11thcentury hill town of Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, in Umbria.

The town borders Tuscany and Umbria and offers the cultural and gastronomic pleasures of both regions, with truffles, porcini, olive oil, excellent wines, local cheeses and salami dominating the menus of the restaurants and bars that overlooks the Aggia Valley and beyond. The property, approached from the valley by a tar-macadam road, then via 200m of white road and once inside the property into a large stone courtyard, has been beautifully restored maintaining many of the original features of the original mill and farmhouse but with all the modern amenities necessary for short or long term, winter or summer residency.

The ground floor offers a very large and well designed kitchen, pantry and dining area leading out to a large terrace with a west facing pergola, covered with a mature wisteria, where you may enjoy sitting or dining in the shade throughout the whole summer season. There is also a glass south and west facing lemonia, which may be accessed from the kitchen, and dining area with views across the garden and surrounding woodlands. Perfect in winter.

A large and beautifully furnished living room with an open double facing fireplace, which may be enjoyed from the living room, kitchen and dining area.

A ground floor cloakroom and toilet with large storage area. A study with a separate wood burning stove and library, which may be accessed by a wooden staircase.

The large Master Bedroom suite is located on the ground floor and has an open fireplace, simply perfect for winter evenings, with built in wardrobes and a walk in closet.

There is also a further tranquil sitting and dining area directly accessible from the kitchen, with excellent views of the garden and surrounding hills and woodlands. It is located at the front of the house under a portico. Ideal for lunch or dinner during the summer season, or inclement weather.

The upper two floors, accessed internally via a wide staircase and externally from the courtyard via steps, offers a further 4 large double bedrooms all with seating areas, en- suite bathrooms and built in wardrobes.

The gardens and lawns, irrigated throughout, are well kept and offer a carefully selected trees, shrubs, plants and flowers offering colour throughout all four seasons.

There is also an orchard with a variety of fruit trees, including plum, apple, cherry and peach trees to name just a few.
