On the border between the verdant Umbria and the beautiful Tuscany, in the municipality of Città della Pieve, we find this farmhouse, "Castello II", which used to be part of the famous reign of the Duke of Tuscany.

The main entrance is on the triple-arched lounge and dining room, then we find a kitchen, the small cellar/pantry, and a storage room. The splendid living room with large fireplace is connected to another room, from which we find another access to the outside; a double bedroom and a master bathroom with double sink and shower that serves this first part of the farmhouse. A comfortable staircase leads to the upper floor, consisting of a large and very bright double bedroom, with a bathroom and shower, corridor, another double bedroom, and another bathroom. An evocative circular balcony separates the master bedroom and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub creating a completely separate suite.

Typically renovated farmhouse with functionality, the original construction dates back to 1800. A review of the layout for a bathroom was carried out in 2008. Its maintenance is perfect and continuous. The swimming pool is 15x7 meters and there is a roman staircase of 3m and hydromassage area. The new windows have double glaze and are made of wood and metal.
The farmhouse is currently inhabited and attended by the family on weekends and holidays. It would be perfect for those who love nature, a quiet and genuine life where to relax, but also live there permanently. Potentially, given the rural characteristics but at the same time elegant and refined, the property is also suitable to be inserted in a circuit of rents, as it was in the past.
