Located on a high ground on the northern bank of Trasimeno Lake with a view of the Appennini, near the small town of Passignano sul Trasimeno, the property is set in an uncontaminated natural landscape.
This new project is the union of two harmonically connected blocks, which become a single entity.
The particularity of this building are the external walls , a part of which is plaster and painted with a stone that resembles the earth and a part is covered with stones to resemble the past and the traditions of old Umbria farmsteads.
The construction is embellished with a beautiful terrace enriched with a wooden pergola that gives a exclusive view of the lake Trasimeno. The use and processing of the recycled materials such as bricks, stones, tiles and wooden beams allows by recreating the history of the preexsisting farmhouse.

Through an internal staircase one can access the ground floor where there are a large living room, a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a utility room. The first floor consists of three bedrooms with bathroom. In the annex there is a living area and an en suite bedroom.
The garden has been developed around the existent bushes and further refined with the introduction of other local plants; it enriches the outdoors and contributes to the beauty of the property. All this is accompanied by a beautiful infinity pool comprising of two pools, one higher and one lower, connected by a waterfall.
Passignano is a small village that lies on the placid shores of Lake Trasimeno, reflecting in its gentle waters. The ancient heart of Passignano is surrounded by medieval walls with three gateways and many towers, with Torre di Ponente still dominating the town. These buildings are testimony of the transformation of Passignano from a small rural village during the Roman Empire to a castle and fortress during the Middle Ages.
The residential area developed between the 1500s and the 1600s. Passignano’s history spans two thousand years before it became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in 1643; it then shared the fate of that region until it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Italy in 1860.
Passignano is an ideal destination for tourists who want to discover the history, traditions, and excellent food prepared with typical local products as well as enjoy events that bring back a glimpse of the lakeside town’s past.
