Villa dei Pini is a detached property dating back to 1901 and has been meticulously restored by the current owner. It has an abundance of original features including beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and stone fireplaces. Located in the exclusive Umbrian hills in total peace and serenity, this gated property is close to Petrelle, a small village within the municipality of Città di Castello in Umbria. The property is close to the border with Tuscany and only a short drive from Cortona and other key tourist destinations.
The property is accessed by a good quality country lane and has an electric gated entrance leading to a parking area with ample space for around 10 cars.
The villa is set out over 3 floors for a total of approx. 300 sq m, as follows:
- Ground floor: living room with fireplace, dining room, utility room with WC, kitchen, pantry, cantina and portico.
- First floor: living room with balcony and fireplace, dining area, 2 spacious bedrooms with balconies and bathrooms.

A stunning portico leads on from the kitchen adding a spectacular entertaining space to this beautiful home. The portico has an open fireplace and ample dining area with 3 open arches looking out onto the garden. Doors at the end lead to the swimming pool.
The swimming pool is 16 x 4m and is edged in travertine with terraces at each end with plenty of space for sun loungers. The terrace at the far end overlooks the olive grove with lovely panoramic views of the surrounding area.
The grounds surrounding the home include 160 olive trees, grape vines and fig trees. The property also includes land above the house (separated simply by a rarely used white road) with 600 umbrella pine trees. In total Villa dei Pini offers 2.5 hectares of land.
The central heating is supplied by a private GPL gas tank, while a private well provides water both inside and out. The property has a landline phone connection and WiFi throughout and there is a good mobile phone signal.
