Property description

The Rustico (pronounced ‘roostico if you want to sound Italian) is a house of unique charm and comfort. The old section dates from the early 1600’s and consists of the kitchen, dining room and 2 bedrooms with en-suite baths. The new section has the living room/entrance foyer, a small office and 2 larger bedrooms with en-suite baths. It sits on about an acre of mostly flat land about 400 meters above sea level; it’s surrounded by olive groves, including 125 olive trees of our own. The house has easy access and ample parking, both of which are rare and valuable in this area. The house has original floors, beams, ceilings and walls but is equipped with all the modern conveniences. The dining room has a piano, a large, original fireplace. There’s no air conditioning because the stone walls are very thick and keep the house cool in the summer. We have a lovely pool, a pergola for dining, a 400 year old wood-burning oven for making pizza and other goodies, 2 grills, and a bocce court.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We've been married for 38 years. We have two grown children. We're both actors. We live in New York City as well as Umbria. Mike loves to cook and Jill loves to draw. Recently Mike has published two books about our life in Italy: "Living in a Foreign Language" and "Family Meals." MIke also has a blog _ Notes From The Culinary Wasteland -- where you can read about many of our adventures in Italy and in New York.

Why the Owner Chose Spoleto:
We were traveling in Umbria and fell in love with the area. Then we saw the house and it felt like home.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
There are a number of beautiful Medieval hill towns within 30 minutes of our house: including Spoleto, Montefalco, Trevi, Spello, Assisi and Perugia. We love to explore the and discover new restaurants. The area is a famous food region - noted for black truffles, olive oil, wine, pork and lamb. If you love to cook you'll have a great time shopping in the area and cooking in our kitchen. If you just love to eat, there are many wonderful inexpensive restaurants that we can recommend.
