Description of buildings
La Vedetta sul Lago is a recently restored townhouse with a small, private garden (on two sides of the building) and terraces, in the centre of Tuoro.
Currently split into two separate apartments, it measures 320 sq.m in total over 4 floors.
The first apartment is on the ground floor, with two entrances, from the private courtyard and from the street.
It comprises a spacious living area with kitchen/dining room and sitting room, double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and storeroom.
There is also a cellar with its own entrance on the ground floor.
On the upper floors, there is the main apartment, which is accessed via an outdoor staircase that ends at a pretty terrace measuring 15 sq.m, covered by a pergola.
The first floor comprises the entrance hall, the dining kitchen with island, the double bedroom with two large wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with hydromassage tub.
On the second floor, there is a large living room, a utility room, the storeroom, the attic and a pretty terrace measuring 10 sq.m with panoramic view of Lake Trasimeno.
On the top floor, there is another large sitting room, which has a bathroom next door with shower, and could be used as another bedroom.
State and finishing
The house has been recently restored and is in excellent condition.
Its main feature is, of course, the view of the lake, visible from most of the rooms, especially from the pretty terrace on the second floor.
The exposed stonework exteriors have been maintained, and the main apartment has a traditional interior, with tiled or parquet floors (in the bedroom and the sitting room on the first floor), parts of the wall with stone detail, a large fireplace in the kitchen, and decorations on the walls and ceiling of the top floor, which is a mezzanine.
The fixtures are solid wood, with decorated interior doors.
In the bedroom, a large, hand-painted stained glass window functions as a partition between the bedroom and the en-suite bathroom, where there is a tub/shower with hydromassage and a little balcony.
In contrast, the ground floor apartment, while it still has the original vaulted brick ceilings, has a more modern style, thanks to the light wood floors and the bathroom fixtures and fittings.
In addition to the property’s entrance, bordered by a gate which opens onto a paved lane surrounded by roses, the house also benefits from a pretty, private garden measuring around 100 sq.m, which is also accessible by car.
There is also a covered terrace measuring around 15 sq.m by the entrance to the main apartment, also accessible from the kitchen which makes it ideal for outdoor dining, and another terrace measuring around 10 sq.m on the second floor, with a magnificent view of Lake Trasimeno, Isola Maggiore and Isola Minore.
Use and potential uses
La Vedetta sul Lago is perfect for those looking for an easily accessible home in a picturesque Umbrian historic centre, with all the necessary amenities, who also want to enjoy the views of Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding hills.
The fact that it is divided into two separate apartments also makes it an interesting prospect for an investment property, as one part could be rented out.
Thanks to the panoramic location and proximity to Lake Trasimeno, it would also be an ideal place to spend a few months of the year, renting it out on a weekly basis when not in use.
