Podere Ucella is the home to a famous film maker with a wonderful collection of art and artefacts from all over the world. The old stone farmhouse sits on its own at the end of a private drive, near Ficulle a sleepy Umbrian village. The design and layout of the house rotates around the main room of the house, the kitchen/dining room with a large Bengal tiger painting hanging on the wall. The owners have an extended family so they paid a lot of attention in creating a number of interesting living areas both inside and out in the garden. The large swimming pool is set at the end of the garden, fenced off for security with a pool house, inside a small gym, a WC, a sitting room and a cantina with a collection of wines for sale leading out under a large shaded dining area. there is a second outside seating area up by the house, under some large trees that offer a magical setting in those hot summer evenings. This home is ideal for families that want to enjoy time together in comfort, or explore local towns and villages but at the same time the stunning cities of Orvieto as Montepulciano are both within easy reach. Here you have the best of both worlds, an unspoilt local village with restaurants and the busier more famous towns and cities that Tuscany and Umbrian offer within an easy drive.
