Via Leopoldo Grilli 5
[EDIT: As of June 2022 we have found buyers for our beloved casa. Friends of ours. I am thrilled someone we love will now love our house as much as we did.]
We are reluctantly going to sell our pretty apartment in the Centro Storico of Umbertide, Umbria. We plan to stay in Italy, probably even in Umbria, maybe even Umbertide! But that is all uncertain until we can sell.
I decided to create this page with photos and a write up about it. I have had it listed here but the agents don’t do much to market real estate. I figured I’d try it a bit myself. I have a friend who is a real estate agent, semi-retired, who would help with the paperwork and the Notaio and details. Without an agent we can sell for a lower price. Take a look below at some pictures. Send an email to nancy22314 at yahoo dot com if you have questions.
Perfect in town living but with a quiet rear view over forest, farms, mountains and river. The best of both worlds. This apartment is only steps from three butchers, two bakeries, grocers, restaurants and shops. Just outside the door is Bar Mary for your morning caffè or an evening aperitivo with perfect tables for viewing the evening passagiato. At least ten restaurants are within walking distance. The two weekly markets, Wednesday and Saturday are just outside the front door.
Three ample bedrooms and two baths make it good for a family or for having guests. The ceilings are the ancient, stone barrel ceilings common in buildings of this age. Brand new, modern designer Pedini kitchen with all new, high end appliances conveys. Big pantry off the kitchen provides wonderful, easily accessible storage. Large living/dining room with soaring, beamed, terra cotta ceiling. This room has a wonderful “picture” window with Tiber River views which truly lives up to its name. Best of all is the beautiful terrace with ample room for dining and container gardening. It can be completely covered with a new, retractable awning. Being high up you won’t be overlooked which means perfect privacy. The custom lighting on the terrace with upward-facing, built-in lights make for a beautiful setting for summer evenings. Easy to lock and leave if a second home.
