VILLA FOCE


A country villa with a view

The property is located above the Nicone Valley, the most prestigious valley in Umbria. It sits in 23 hectares of land facing south with excellent views up and down the valley.

  • Main house 600 mq
  • Cottage 150 mq
  • Land 23 ha
  • Pool 15×4 mt
  • Parking 6-8 cars
  • Living rooms 3
  • Bedrooms 6
  • Bathrooms 8

Because of its prime location we decided to buy this property to restore and then sell once completed. We began the project in 2013 and it will be completed, together with landscaped gardens, September 2016.

We have taken great care to restore this property to its original splendour including raising the tower, at the core of the main house, to its original height when built around the 13th to 14th century.

We have retained many of the original features but at the same time added strength to the structure to ensure that the building meets the current industry seismic codes. For example, all the window and door apertures have been reinforced with steel, all the floors and ceilings have been removed cleaned, replaced and reinforced with steel and the tops of all the external and internal walls have a steel and concrete cord. We have very carefully sourced recuperated materials to ensure that the property maintains its character and integrity.

This property, when completed, will be unique and one of the most authentic and beautiful restorations, in the Nicone Valley.
