Dream Home – Italy

A villa dating to the 17th century on the border of Italy’s bucolic Tuscany and Umbria regions has been listed for €5.795 million

The house is located within Castello di Reschio, a community where Benedikt Bolza, an architect and Italian Count, has restored 25 of the estate’s 50 farmhouses. It is located a 45-minute drive from the Umbrian capital of Perugia and a half hour from the village of Cortona of Under the Tuscan Sun fame.

The 2.4ha property is comprised of a main house, guest house and outbuildings including a laundry annex and pool annex.

The property “is an estate within the estate,” said Barbara Evans-Butler, who lists the property for Stribling with Mary Ellen Cashman.

The main house has five bedrooms, including a master suite with a terrace. The guest house has an additional two bedrooms. Between the two houses, there are eight bathrooms.

The villa also features an infinity-edge pool, an outdoor dining area and doors in each room that open onto the courtyard and gardens, according to the listing. “There is a lot of opportunity for indoor-outdoor living in this estate,” Mary Ellen said.

The property, which was renovated starting in 2004, has modern updates such as a gated entrance, heated floors, air conditioning and an automated sprinkler system.

The house requires a €8,127 monthly maintenance fee on top of the asking price. However, it comes with services and amenities not usually found in a rustic Italian farmhouse.

As part of Castello di Reschio, the villa comes with daily maid and gardening service, as well as access to a 24-hour helpline.

Residents also have access to Castello di Reschio’s amenities, such as a horse stable with availability for riding and lessons, tennis courts, and three man-made lakes stocked with fish. Foodies can also participate in activities unique to the region, such as wild boar hunting, truffle foraging and cooking classes.

Barbara says that although the community values privacy, the resort does hold a weekly cocktail party so people from across the estate can meet and greet.
