Uliveto also includes: - Laundry/storage room - Shared outdoor pizza oven - Shared back yard - 53 square meters of living area (about 570 sq. feet) - New heating system (gas) This beautiful apartment was completely restored in 2007/2008. It boasts beamed ceilings, and some of the walls are exposed Umbria stone. This apartment is 1 of four units in the building. The floor was excavated in order to install *turtles* under the new floor in order to allow air to pass underneath, insuring a very dry space. The fireplace was also completely torn out and replaced with a new stone hearth and a new stainless chimney liner. All new wiring, plumbing, and state of the art gas heating are included, as well as artistic iron grating over the new first level windows and door. All windows are double pane and have pull down screens. The L shaped kitchen counter has all of the necessary built-in appliances: dishwasher, cooktop, oven and refrigerator. The counter top is beautiful sheet copper and the sink is made of recomposed travertine marble. The apartment is sold complete furnished. Everything in the photos (below) is included: bed, dresser, armadio, cabinets, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, stove, as well as all plates, flatware, glasses, pots and pans, sheets, blankets, towels, etc. What you see in the photos is what is included. This is truly a *chiave in mano* (key in hand) offer. All you need do is select the finest, fresh daily foods from the panettiera (bakery), pasticceria (pastry), macelleria (butcher) shops in Montecchio or buy from the little market across the road from your new home. The graveled backyard with its plum tree and a picnic table overlooks the olive grove to provide outdoor enjoyment. There is easy street parking in the front and a public parking lot above. The views of the surrounding olive groves and hills are unbeatable. Casa Uliveto is located at the edge of the tiny village of Tenaglie with its Renaissance castle/fortress set into the hill, part of which has been converted into a charming 3 story hotel and intimate restaurant with the original stone walls and period furnishings. Tenaglie is a peaceful little village nestled in rolling green hills richly planted with olive groves and vineyards that produce fine Umbrian wines. The pure country air is attested to by the fireflies that appear in the olive groves and the swallows that dart through the air at twilight. This condominium is the ultimate in convenience as a 2nd home. If you are looking for a charming unit with all amenities, requiring minimal upkeep in a fantastic location, then Casa Uliveto fits your dreams. The apartment also has very good rental possibilities and is currently available for rent through VRBO. Our property manager is a friend, who speaks Italian and English, and lives nearby to help with the sale and with rentals. A local woman is available to clean the apartment for a modest fee. Luxurious new homes, all in the traditional regional design, have been built in the village recently and start at 500,000 Euros. The location has generated this level of interest, and you can be part of this same beautiful area for a fraction of that cost. You will be delighted with the many beautiful hill towns in this little Tuscany. A quick walk north (three kilometerss, or 1.5 mis) is the lovely medieval hill town of Montecchio with shops, 3 cafe-bars, three restaurants, post office, bank, and open market every Friday morning. Baschi, Giove, Alviano, Lugnano in Teverina, Amelia, Orte, Narni, and Civitella del Lago are all charming hilltowns within easy driving distance (and some for biking trips).

Lago di Bolsena, 45 minutes by car, is the purest lake in Europe, where you can enjoy a day of swimming and picnicking. Nearby the lake are the hill towns of Montefiascone and Capodimonte to add to your pleasure. The historic Umbrian towns of Assisi, Spoleto, Spello, Gubbio, and Perugia are all within picturesque day-trips by car or train.
