State and finishing
Casale San Marco was built with great care and attention to detail, high quality materials and fine finishes, maintaining the typical architectural style of rural Umbrian farmhouses, perfectly blended with technology and modern comfort.
Part of the bathrooms and other rooms are still being completed, with regard to their finishes, allowing for possible personalization by the buyer.
The property will be sold in a finished condition, except for the furniture.
The floors in the living area are made of Travertine marble and those in the bedrooms are made of wood parquet. The arched French windows were made to measure with iron frames and the remaining fixtures are made of polished oak.
The privately owned land extends over an area of approximately 3.8 hectares completely fenced; the area surrounding the houses is lawned and has large flower beds, borders, flowers, hedges and is interspersed by plots of land, paths and pergolas. Inside the park there are cypress trees, oak trees, pomegranate trees, wisteria and other plants, as well as an olive grove containing about 80 olive trees.
The swimming pool (15 x 4.5 m) has infinity edges and is heated, with roman steps and two depths.
Near the buildings, there is a pergola for parking cars.
