Property for sale, Umbria - offers accepted!

2 lovely apartments for sale in the small village of Selci, Umbria, right on the border with Tuscany.

A true chance to purchase a pad in this beautiful part of Italy without spending a fortune.  Offers around 99,000 Euro for the smaller apartment (2 beds, 2 baths) make this an amazing opportunity to have a low maintenance, high security, rentable property in a highly desirable part of the country.

Without having to worry about a garden to maintain (there is a small outdoor space with the ground floor apartment to the rear of the property), it couldn't be easier to lock up and leave or just turn the key and unpack when you arrive.  

Both properties lend themselves to holiday rentals so you can cover expenses and make a small profit by renting out the apartment at times when you can't be here.

Restored to the highest possible specification, both apartments have full gas central heating and double glazed windows.
Apartment 1: 

ground floor with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge kitchen, small garden to rear, independent access, brand new gas central heating and double glazed windows. Parquet flooring throughout.  Size approx 78sqm.

€105,000 Offers considered

Apartment 2:

Middle and top floor, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, lounge kitchen, balcony, independent access, brand new gas central heating and double glazed windows.  Parquet flooring throughout.  Size approx. 86sqm.

€99,000 Offers considered

Normally when buying property from an agent in Italy there is a 3% fee payable by both the seller and the buyer.  As you could buy direct from the owners, this fee would be saved too.

Further savings can be made on transfer of title etc as the owners' cousin (everyone is related here in Italy!!) who is an architect can do a lot of the property transfer paperwork, leaving just the purchase tax and notary fees which are about 6%.

Selci is a picturesque little village near the Tuscan/Umbrian border. E asily accessed from a major road it's near to a Ryanair destination in Perugia, so is within affordable travelling distance from most European countries.

By car it is 1.5 hours to the wonderful historic cities of Florence and Sienna and 2 hours to the "eternal" city, Rome. The coast is an easy 1 hour 20 minutes, and every other Italian city is accessible using the inexpensive and efficient Italian rail system.

The properties will be an ideal base for anyone wishing to see Italy and to use it on a regular basis, but would also be a great investment, as they could easily realise €350 to €450 per week as holiday rentals. 

The owners are happy to offer a caretaker service to ensure everything is in good working order and to act as reception for guests and clean the properties when vacated.They can also assist in obtaining rentals if required.

If you are seriously interested, please contact me at and I will put you in touch with the owners directly.
