Wonderful and ancient ex convent now converted into villa of 260 sqm distributed on 5 levels with a garden and 2 annexes, located in a small village called Case Basse, a few steps from Nocera Umbra, which includes a lovely Medieval church dedicated to the martyr bishop of San Giovenale.
We enter the property through a gated entry and we are immediately in front of the church with its bell-gable and sacristy. The church is listed with the Italian Fine Arts and it is obligatory to keep it opened once a month upon request. It’s currently going under a restoration financed by the Region Umbria.
Entering the villa, at the right we find a characteristic kitchen with a fireplace and wooden beams on the ceiling. It also has access to a lovely balcony overlooking the property garden. At the right, from the kitchen, we find a comfortable and spacious bathroom with a large bathtub.
From the kitchen, going a few steps up there is the first bedroom of the house which has wooden floor and a fireplace. It is very bright and spacious and its windows overlook the garden.
Going back in the living area we find a convenient storage/tech room, while going a few steps down we find a living room with a large fireplace, wooden ceiling and partially cotto tiles and partially wooden floors. It also has a small cantina space with small “grotto” and access to the outside.
At the right, from the living room, we find another spacious bedroom with wooden floor and its ensuite bathroom with a shower.
From the living room, a door opens onto a beautiful staircase which leads to a lower level and, at the end of it, we also find another access to the outside. On the stair landing there is an old well and a beautiful exposed stone wall.
Down the stairs, to the left, we find another living room with a fireplace and exposed stone wall with some lovely niches. It is possible to access the garden from there too.
A few steps forward we find a guest bedroom with its ensuite bathroom with a shower.
Going back to the living room, we can reach a lovely loft and a stair which leads down to another room with wooden beams and exposed stone wall, this is a unique winter garden. It is very bright and characteristic and it can also access to the garden.
From the main entrance, a walkway leads to the outhouse, which is not connected internally and it is accessible by a stairway. It is composed of a spacious bedroom with several skylights and a bathroom with a shower.
The property is surrounded by a large garden, including 2 annexes that need to be renovated.
The property features wonderful old shutters and double-glazed windows made of both iron and wood, which have been maintained excellently. It also has alarm system.
It features gas heating.
Both the electric and plumbing plants should be reviewed, although the latter has good copper pipes.
