Wonderful Historical Villa Surrounded By Umbria's Countryside
Old convent for sale a few kilometres from Terni
Prestigious historical estate for sale in Umbria
This prestigious historical villa is framed by the stunning Umbrian countryside, in the province of Terni.
This was originally a Franciscan convent, acquired and converted into a home by the Colonna family, one of the most important Italian families of the Middle Ages and the Modern Age.
A part of the estate is the body of the Franciscan convent built in stone in 1426, whose structure has remained unchanged, still preserving the austere and rigorous spirit expressed by its majestic walls, vaulted ceilings, and a long corridor that led to the monks' cells.
The most modern, profane and luxurious part of the estate was rebuilt at the end of the 19th century. This portion is characterized by majestic and slender lines, typical of the end of the century, enriched with frescoes and a panoramic terrace from which it is possible to admire the splendid village of Amelia.
Surrounded by 30,000 square meters of grounds, this estate measures 1,800 square meters and has two levels. On the ground floor there is a big kitchen with a dining room and two bright living rooms that directly overlook the garden. Next to the living area we find a nice apartment consisting of a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom with independent entrance.
The first floor is divided into six bedrooms, two bathrooms, two kitchens, and a large reception room with a fireplace and terrace. The pride of the house is the splendid library with a fireplace and the small chapel.
The materials and finishes used are of the highest quality, such as the marble and parquet floors, frescoed vaulted ceilings, and some original custom-made furniture of the time.
This property is perfect for those who dream of living in the name of relaxation in a place of absolute peace, a small natural oasis to rediscover the most authentic link with a wonderful area.
