Borgo O Spicchio
Borgo Ospicchio is immersed in the green Umbrian hills between Tuscany and Umbria. The property is accessed via a well-kept dirt road, the property consists of two houses with a shared courtyard, a beautiful salt water swimming pool and a magical view over the valley. Villa Vetusta, the larger of the two buildings, is a large stone farmhouse surmounted by a small turret typical of Umbrian Tuscan farmhouses. The villa consists of two main bodies, one unrestored and the other a large completely restored independent property with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, two of which are located in the ancient tower. The villa consists of a large entrance which currently houses a full size pool table but could be used as a dining area, a new fitted kitchen and a large living room that overlooks the valley on two sides. The Villa benefits from the shade offered by the mature pines even if a thinning out would greatly improve access to a wonderful panorama. The second building, Casa Ospicchio, is a beautifully restored old school. This home has a spacious open plan living area and kitchen on the top floor with the two bedrooms and two large bathrooms located on the lower level. Casa Ospicchio combines a feel of modern architecture with many of the villa's original features such as wooden beams and open fireplace. It also has an unrestored cellar which offers the option of adding more bedrooms to the property or creating a separate annex. The swimming pool measuring 10 x5 is located between mature pine and olive trees and is surrounded by rosemary and lavender. Use a saltwater system to minimize the use of chemicals. Mature olive trees line the terraces around the pool, with fruit trees and tall pine trees. The area around the pool has formal terraces while the land around the houses is gently sloping.
