When we think of Italy, we normally conjure up images of centuries old villas and estates, set somewhere near a lovely ancient hilltop town.
But The Matchmakers, a real estate company specializing in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, France, Mexico and Tuscany & Umbria in Italy, has teamed up to present some exciting beautiful new low-energy, sustainable homes that use solar and photovoltaic panels and renewable materials treated with natural products, to produce an exciting new living experience amid the lovely countryside of Umbria - the neighbor of Tuscany - known as the "Green Heart of Italy".
The home in the photo is an example. Located in Perugia, the capital of Umbria, this villa uses large glass surfaces to provide panoramic views of the historical center of Perugia, as well as the Umbrian Valley beyond.
The home is built on two floors, with a large kitchen and terrace on the first floor, along with two bedrooms, one and a half baths and study.
Stairs lead down to the basement floor with two more bedrooms, half bath and a shower room.
There is also a privately accessed guest apartment with bathroom and kitchen, and its own private terrace.
The home is priced at 880,000 Euros.
This home is already completed, but new sustainable homes and villas can be built according to the buyer's specifications.
