Lisciano Niccone/Tuoro sul Trasimeno
For those who aren't in love with the traditional style Umbrian property constructed with stone, wood and terracotta, or for those who have already 'done' the farmhouse thing and fancy a change, this stunning and modern property is a lovely alternative. Rectangular and with a flat roof, the house is rendered and the aspect horizontally divided by a very wide balcony that serves all three of the first floor bedrooms. Predominantly open plan, the ground floor consists of a spacious sitting/dining/kitchen area and a semi-open study/library/TV room as well as a small room that could be used as a single bedroom. There is a guest bathroom, a large billiard room and a laundry. Enormous, and reassuringly solid, sliding windows occupy much of the front wall of the ground floor and allow the light to flood in from the outside whilst providing a stunning view of the lake and surroundings from within. There are solid wooden floors throughout, a modern enclosed fireplace on the ground floor, a variety of slick modern bathrooms and all fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. The stone paved terrace spans the width of the house in front of the windows and there is a lovely pergola under which to sit and enjoy the view. Steps lead down to the swimming pool which is in perfect proportion to the house. The property has a short, private drive which winds up to the house and through the gardens which as yet need to be planted out. A striking property in a panoramic location.
