A villa dating to the 17th century on the border of Italy’s bucolic Tuscany and Umbria regions was listed Monday for €5.795 million (US$7.17 million), according to Stribling & Associates.
The house is located within Castello di Reschio, a community where Benedikt Bolza, an architect and Italian Count, has restored 25 of the estate’s 50 farmhouses. It is located a 45-minute drive from the Umbrian capital of Perugia and a half hour from the village of Cortona of “Under the Tuscan Sun” fame.
The six-acre property is comprised of a main house, guest house and outbuildings including a laundry annex and pool annex. The property “is an estate within the estate,” said Barbara Evans-Butler, who lists the property for Stribling with Mary Ellen Cashman. Ms. Evans-Butler and Ms. Cashman would not disclose the identity of current owners.
The main house has five bedrooms, including a master suite with a terrace. The guest house has an additional two bedrooms. Between the two houses, there are eight bathrooms.
The villa also features an infinity-edge pool, an outdoor dining area and doors in each room that open onto the courtyard and gardens, according to the listing. “There is a lot of opportunity for indoor-outdoor living in this estate,” Ms. Cashman said
The property, which was renovated starting in 2004, has modern updates such as a gated entrance, heated floors, air conditioning and an automated sprinkler system.
The house requires a €8,127 (US$10,051) monthly maintenance fee on top of the asking price. However, it comes with services and amenities not usually found in a rustic Italian farmhouse.

As part of Castello di Reschio, the villa comes with daily maid and gardening service, as well as access to a 24-hour helpline.
Residents also have access to Castello di Reschio’s amenities, such as a horse stable with availability for riding and lessons, tennis courts, and three man-made lakes stocked with fish. Foodies can also participate in activities unique to the region, such as wild boar hunting, truffle foraging and cooking classes.
Ms. Evans-Butler said that although the community values privacy, the resort does hold a weekly cocktail party so people from across the estate can meet and greet.
