Le More was completed in September 2021, following a build that was conceived, project-managed and interior designed by Special Umbria. It is a property of perfect poise with its soft-coloured stone, tiled roof and elegant chimney. It sits in an ancient landscape of breathtaking beauty where the views from the house are matched by the design and artistry within.
The property is divided into a main house with three large en-suite bedrooms on the first floor, and a guest house with a separate entrance that has another two spacious en-suites. Built from warm, local stone in vernacular style, Le More’s interior takes design inspiration from Scandinavia, Italy, and the Sixties, expertly blending them to create a clean, subtle, cohesive whole.
Natural materials, including oak, marble and linen, provide a backdrop for specially commissioned artwork and furniture. Curves complement angles and functional details are not forgotten: the expertly equipped kitchen is supported by a further side kitchen, there is floor cooling throughout, there are Sonos systems in every bedroom and the lighting is meticulously designed.
Le More is surrounded by roughly a hectare of garden and woodland. A veranda at the front of the house has a large dining table and there are further low seating areas, including a beautiful space between the buildings with views through the oak trees to the valley beyond. The pool (12mx6m) sits on a terrace below the house with a bank of pretty planting separating the two.
Located close to Piegaro and Perugia, guests can discover the delights of Italy’s green heartland beyond Le More’s gates, and then retreat to the comfortable and considered design of this delightful property.
