Description

This exceptional country property is situated just outside of the famous hilltop town Todi in the heart of Umbria.  The location in the countryside yet at only 2.9 km from Todi’s main square allows the owners the enjoy the best of both worlds. There are however many more surprising advantages! Some of these very convincing key features are:

  • a very pretty view of the impressive 16th century Consolazione church built by Bramante
  • the property is very easy accessible from a quiet tarmac road
  • it’s rare and fabulous find, the entire plot is completely level!
  • various lovely outbuildings which offer potential for diverse usage
  • high quality finishes and systems are used throughout the property
  • the spacious set-up of the grounds creates a wonderful open feeling and atmosphere

Main building

The roots of this property date back to the year 1650 and it was fully renovated in the 90’s. The renovation focussed on maintaining and recreating the traditional appearance with stone, beams and cotto. There are various buildings with a convenient distance between them for both use and privacy.  Heating, air conditioning and alarm systems available in all liveable spaces. They all run on a central system but can function independently.  The use of the building could vary and depends simply on the wishes of the new owner.

The main house is a typical Umbrian style former farmhouse. Built in stone in a traditional rectangular shape, with a sturdy and solid character. With only minor intervention the building has been divided into two separate homes, if desired this can easily be undone. Part of the ground floor still needs to undergo an internal make-over. Both parts enjoy the private use of a driveway and parking.

The larger half features an open floor plan with a spacious dine-in kitchen and living. An additional sitting room with fireplace,  a (bed)room with en-suite bathroom and second bathroom complete the ground floor. The first floor harbours a large master bedroom suite with fireplace, en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Three more bedrooms and a separate bathroom offer plenty of space for comfortable use. All areas showcase cotto floors and ceilings with beams and bricks.

The other part of the building features two spaces that need to be finished on the ground floor. An external staircase gives access to the first floor which offers a living with kitchen, 2 bathrooms as well as two bedrooms.

Outbuildings

A wonderful guest house is situated at a convenient distance from the main house in a way that provides full privacy for both structures. A delightful feature is the very bright conservatory facing the garden and orchard. This cottage harbours a living with fireplace, ceiling with ancient recuperated beams and staircase to a walkway decorated with faux bookcases. A bedroom, bathroom with shower, spacious walk-in closet and kitchen make up for the remaining surface. The large inside/outside heated dog kennel is a nice bonus and can be reached both from the kitchen as from the outside. If desired it can be turned into additional living space.
Around the back a build-in outdoor kitchen with grill is a perfect summer solution.

A second outbuilding could be another guest or caretakers house. Built in stone and brick is blends in perfectly with the other parts of the property. It features a living with quaint kitchen cupboard, a loft and bathroom.

There are several additional spaces like the good size garage, a large barn with separate boiler room, workshop and water storage tank, and a sturdy roof over the terrace next to the pool. Most roofs are equipped with solar panels which generate more than double the annual use of the property. The superfluous electricity is sold back to the grid.

The land

Two separate gates gives access to the property. The main gate is centrally located and opens to a short driveway which leads up to the main house, the guest house and double carport. The driveway from the secondary gate is lined with tall cypress trees and provides access to the caretakers house, garage and apartment in the main building.

The meticulously kept garden offers many mature trees, perfects lawn and is both well designed. There is an orchard, plenty of flower beds, and a perfect pool (10 x 6x 1.4) with sun deck and electric cover. A little wooden house works as a perfect dressing room and storage space for the pool area. The vegetable garden ensure a steady zero km produce. The green house add another nice touch and keeps the lemons safe in winter time. Various terraces offer space to relax and unwind. This property is definitely perfect for receiving guests and entertaining!

In total there are three wells, one of which is more than anything else ornamental. The other two wells provide water for the entire property, the buildings as well as garden irrigation system and pool.

Surroundings

This delightful and inviting country home is situated at walking distance of the nearest bar, restaurant and a small grocery shop. Todi dates back to Etruscan times and offers many cultural treasures as well as a variety of good restaurants. The town has a strategic location between Rome and Tuscany, in the heart of Umbria. The area is unspoiled and castles, vineyards and medieval hamlets litter the countryside, many of which still feature a very authentic appearance. Many winding roads offer stunning views and tranquility and nature can be enjoyed everywhere.

Interesting cities like Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spoleto and Amelia and historical sites like Carsulae are within easy reach. The nearest international airport is Perugia, followed by Rome.
