Charming Abbey with pool in Orvieto, Umbria.
For sale historic property divided in 3 units, for a total of 1000 sqm, 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 6 ha of land and a panoramic pool.
Since ancient times this stunning Abbey fascinated lots of men.
This building rose in Etruscan times, in fact the Etruscans dug caves and underground passages, then in the Middle age was built a great tower that is still part of the property.
In the mid-18th century, close to the Abbey was built a monastery, that created some churches and chapels that 200 years later were used by the farmers of the then-owner of the property, that was a nobleman of the family Bracci Testasecca.
During the second World War the property was destroyed by the bombs, in 1945 it was rebuilt using the original stones and then in the 70’s it was tastefully restored by the famous architect Bega.
Now the Abbey has become an awesome property of 1000 sq.m., it is divided in 3 units:
The tower and the main villa, which are linked by the lemon-house, are composed of 4 kitchens 7 bright bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 6 living rooms, 2 storages and a lovely sauna;
