Villa Cristina, Casa del Diavolo, Perugia, Umbria


7 Bedroom House Sold

The world has certainly changed in the last few months. Working from home is the new normal.  The commute to work a distant memory for many. The idea of a rural life now seems more appealing than the hectic ones we once had. A change is coming. What was regarded as important we now view with an open mind. Since the lockdown in Italy the Abode Team have seen a marked increase in enquiries for country houses with land. This is not surprising in our view, but finding the right estate or property can be difficult at the best of times.

Santa Cristina is one of these properties. It is isolated, but not. There is a feeling of remoteness, however, the centre of Perugia is only 30 minutes away and Perugia International Airport is even closer. This estate has credentials. Once owned by the famous theatre director Luca Ronconi and initially renovated by Gae Aulenti, the Architect, funny enough, who designed the new Perugia airport.

If you are looking to start over again or just want to have a magical home in Italy then this must be one of the best available properties on the market. The present owners have bought the main house and the guesthouse into the 21st century. They have downed pens and paper, apart for the recent home schooling and transformed the property into a harmonious modern environment. Between the functionality and the free life of the amazing Umbria countryside, it is not difficult to see the intoxication of Santa Christina.  

The estate is held in a simple Italian farming company and would make financial sense for any purchaser to continue with this status. With over 90 ha and potentially another 30 ha, to be purchased, the land could make a viable farm.

Most of the work have been completed over the last three years but there is more to do. There is a ruin on the land as well as other buildings which could be renovated. There might also be the potential for European grants and other farming funding, subject to applications.

This really is an unique opportunity to change your life or to create a working business in Italy. Yes, there is an amazing pool, outbuildings, fully restored guesthouse and other structures which could be utilised. Yes, there is wood burning central heating and Yes you could become completely self sufficient.

Priced in our Coronavirus status, we would highly recommend anyone who is looking to purchase a little bit of the beautiful Umbria countryside with oodles of buildings, in a safe and unspoilt location, should see Santa Cristina. In 90 ha social distancing is assured!
