In the hills of Orvieto and along the road that leads to the beautiful Castello Antinori with its renowned vineyards that surround the property, La Strada del Castello is a beautiful farmhouse with outbuilding and garden courtyard of approximately 2,000 sqm, completely fenced in, with 2 driveways. The outdoor area, characterized by a 12x6 swimming pool with a height of 1.20 and a depth of 2 meters, which represents an added value of the house, thanks to the Roman staircase and a particular domed roof structure that allows it to be used in any season of the year. The property, renovated in 2014, preserves the beauty of the ancient while dedicating particular modern touches with particular attention to light, color and materials. There are two structures: the main house of about 350 square meters in total, the dependance of 100 square meters with various outbuildings such as the former stables, the old oven and utility rooms for a total of 74 square meters. The main farmhouse is made up of 3 levels: on the ground floor we find typical rustic and service rooms, a garage / tavern, a porch and a cave cellar on two floors. On the first floor there is a large terrace, a bright living room, a lounge, a functional kitchen - dining room, a bathroom and a closet. The second floor finally consists of a large study, three bedrooms and a bathroom. It is also possible to access this floor via an external staircase. The other building is an annex divided into 2 areas: in the first we find the living area consisting of kitchen, bathroom, living room with mezzanine, bedroom and bathroom; in the second part we find the former stables and an oven. La Strada nel Castello is a farmhouse where elegance and tradition blend together giving life to a unique property of its kind: the view of the vineyards from the suspended rows, the cellar, the view of the castle that can be seen from the windows have the hilly profile as a background with the Orvieto cliff that satisfy and compensate for the wires and poles of the panorama.
The property can be used both as a main residence and as a second home. Given its strategic and well-served location, the farmhouse can be a convenient base for reaching and visiting the major towns of Umbria and Tuscany. Bordering the famous vineyards, producer of the very tasty Castello della Sala wine and its renowned cellar, it can become a sought-after accommodation business with numerous beds. Therefore suitable for rentals and holidays given the presence of the indoor swimming pool that can be used all year round.

The main farmhouse is finished and habitable, renovated in 2014 with typical materials, mixing a rustic taste with modern suggestions. The external walls are partly plastered and partly in stone. Inside, terracotta and wooden beams. The annex-dependance with its original rustic imprint is partly habitable and renovated in a modern way with taste and refinement; the former stables, on the other hand, retain their rural characteristics but have the possibility of being transformed into residential structures as well. The exterior is well cared for even if a nice hedge could improve some glimpses of the landscape cut by the wires of the poles that cross the property.
