Property Description

Villa Prosperini represents a unique opportunity to acquire an architecturally stunning, classical styled Villa Nobile, built by the Marchese Annibale Propsperini-Merlini, who was a local landlord of significant means in the late 1930’s.  It stands within a tranquil 6-hectare estate of mature trees and landscaped gardens. There is an impressive 500 metre private road to reach the main gates of the property lined majestically on both sides by tall cypress trees that were planted when the villa was built. The shape of the building having an almost rectangular foot print and the sheer height of the ceilings on every floor lend a quality and grandeur seldom available in the more rural spaces of Umbria.

In front of the villa is a circular stone pond with a water fountain in the center, that may be illuminated at night.

There is a beautiful cottage, close to the villa, with a double garage on the ground floor and an outside covered staircase leading up to an open arched veranda with living accommodation to be renovated, on the first floor.

In addition there is a barn on two floors to be restored.

The 864 SQM Villa, was lovingly restored by the present owner, in 2003. With 9 bedrooms, 4 huge bathrooms, a further WC and 4 plus reception rooms, spread over 3 floors, each with over 3 metre high ceilings, it offers adequate accommodation, for a large family and friends.

The ground floor, as you might expect for a villa of this period, has a beautiful entrance lobby leading, on either side, to a large living room and dining room. There is also small private siting room, a very large kitchen, pantry and laundry room and a ground floor cloak room.  The tiled flooring on this floor is intricate and a work of art in itself

The second floor offers two very large double bedrooms at the front of the villa with a library, in between, that can be accessed from either side by both of the bedrooms. There are two large bathrooms, one of which is en suite.

At the rear of the first floor there are two further large double bedrooms. The spaciousness of the arrangement lends itself to easy adjustments such as  arranging the area instead to offer a substantial Master Bedroom suite with bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.

The bedrooms, on this floor, are all accessed by a central corridor running the whole length of the villa.

The second floor, mirrors the first floor, with two large double bedrooms at the front with a room in between currently used as another bedroom.  Again, with almost no effort, this current arrangement could be turned into a spacious sitting room. There are a further two large bathrooms on this floor. At the rear of the second floor there are two further large double bedrooms which could be adjusted to offer a second Master Bedroom suite with bedroom, bathroom and dressing room, as per the first floor.

Again, being almost the exact replica of the floor below the bedrooms, on this floor, are accessed by a central corridor running the whole length of the villa.  Above the top floor is a substantial useable attic space for storage.

The grand staircase, leading up to all the floors, has the original white marble steps and beautiful, liberty style, railings. Central to the staircase is a chandelier and the flooring below is in a classical style of black and white tiles.

The internal floors throughout the villa are clad in tiles from the period and are all original, with beautiful designs.

The exterior of the villa is rendered and painted in antique red, a colour, perfectly suited to the period.

All the external windows are double glazed and have external shutters.  The house has Wifi and movement sensors have also been installed for security purposes.

All in all with out-house’s included, this is a stunning period villa complex of over Sq Metres 1,000.00. This  includes a Cottage or Lemonia at Sq Metres 100.00, and a barn to be restored at Sq Metres 70.00

The south facing salt water pool measuring 12 x 6 Sq Metres enjoys the sun all day.

The land is 6 hectares.  The nearest town within 300m of the drive is Calzalaro and beyond that the larger town of Trestina.  Perugia airport is a 40 minute drive, Florence 1:45, and Rome 2:30.
