Suspended on a hillock at an altitude of 457 m, with a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills, in the greenest heart of Umbria, stands La Cerqua, a beautiful farmhouse entirely clad in stone. Here, absolute protagonist is the natural scenery that surrounds the property: from every angle the vast, 1-hectare park which surrounds the house like a natural terrace offers an open view of the immense skyline. A lovely location with a tastefully furnished interior, very comfortable, spacious and with great attention to every detail. The wooden-beamed ceilings, the terracotta floor and the numerous stone fireplaces bestow on the house the typical charm of Umbrian farmhouses. The marvelous swimming pool, purified with salt, promises absolute tranquillity and is embraced by a well-kept lawn, olive grove, tall trees and many fragrant and colourful blooms. The ground floor of the house is dedicated to a large living area with two sitting rooms and a kitchen with dining area. The floor is completed by a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a laundry room and two guest bathrooms. The first floor contains another three bedrooms, all with ensuite bathroom. The bedrooms will be equipped with air conditioning from the 2022 season. A large outdoor dining area under the pergola and a comfortable living area that lends itself perfectly to enjoying a convivial glass of wine; this and more is offered by the magnificent outdoor area of La Cerqua. In short, a splendid residence for those in search of privacy and relaxation. We are in Saragano, a small medieval borgo, characterised by an old fortified castle and a square, with olive groves and vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see. La Cerqua is the perfect departure point for excursions to Todi, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi and Spoleto, as well as to Florence and Rome, being just a few kilometres from the E45 highway which connects with all of Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio.
