L’incanto del Ruscello nel Borgo

Enchantment…hearing the bubbling of the water down in the garden and to the side of the houses…enchantment is the look from the windows on the suggestive stream surrounded by greenery among the sculpted rocks ..enchantment for a unique and spectacular property where past and present meet. Immerse yourself in a fairytale atmosphere for a property in the countryside village that will wait for you and will leave you simply enchanted.

L’incanto del Ruscello nel Borgo, is a former mill with a large farmhouse and a small annex for a total of 300 sqm, crossed by a fascinating stream and a characteristic historic road for public use but little frequented which makes a country property similar to a small village hamlet. The two buildings are surrounded by a pretty and well-kept garden among the rocks, of about 1,000 square meters, crossed by a stream of running water, from which it is possible to enjoy the panoramic view between the olive trees of the hills and the valley with three lakes: Lake Trasimeno, Lake of Chiusi and Lake of Montepulciano. The largest farmhouse is spread over three levels with a very characteristic basement, where in past centuries the water flowed deeply, digging the rock, forming sticks of stalactites and thus creating the suggestive tavern former mill that now with a fireplace with a modern touch it has become a fairytale stay; the basement / dining room and a cave – cellar complete the floor.
On the raised ground floor, there is a beautiful living room with heater/stufa, the eat-in kitchen with a dining area and fireplace, a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a bathroom for the second bedroom and the living area.
On the second floor there is a study / third bedroom and a bathroom.

The smaller house is on two levels with a raised ground floor with a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom; while on the floor below, there is a large tavern/cellar overlooking the garden + technical room. This annex is located in front of the farmhouse beyond the characteristic public road. We can identify it as an independent house with its garden and the area to be used as a parking lot. Unique and lovely property.

State of repair

The property is in excellent condition. The houses are habitable and in excellent condition, recently renovated (2016) with taste and refinement. The colours of the interiors of the property are light and bright; there are touches of modern style that blend perfectly with the typical imprints of the past. There is the possibility of creating a parking space in the lower part of the land.


The farmhouse is regularly connected to utilities: electricity, heating with LPG system, internet, telephone and water. Air conditioning in the annexe and in the bedrooms of the main building. Alarm present. The property is 1 km away from Sarteano, and about 10 minutes from the Chiusi shopping centre, motorway and railway network.

Use and Potential Uses

This unique and wonderful building, a former mill, is suitable both as a country holiday home with suggestive spaces to fully enjoy the outdoors and as a house to live in permanently given its proximity to a village with all services. There is the possibility of allocating the property for receptive use either in whole or in part, thanks also to the dependence and to the typical and particular elements of the former mill and the stream that with their charm are requested by tourists and vacationers. The farmhouse is located at a strategic point for visiting central Italy, Umbria, Lazio and of course Tuscany.
