Todi has always been a hotspot in Umbria but lately this area is so popular that it is getting hard to find a nice home for a reasonable price. But, we have one right here! A hidden gem in the countryside at a mere 10 km from the historic center of the famous hill top town. The house is of recent construction and requires little maintenance and that’s not all there is to it. Here are some additional advantages of this property:
The house was built as a modern take on the traditional Umbrian farmhouses. The wall are clad with local stone on the outside and the beautiful wooden roof construction attracts attention throughout the top floor. The floors are tiles with cotto an also the doors and windows are of a very high quality.
The front door opens into the living room and the view inside continues all the way to the far off hills in the distance. To the left is the sitting area with fireplace followed by a comfortable space currently used as study. To the right lies the kitchen as well as a full bathroom with shower. The kitchen features a double faced fireplace which can be used for grilling also from the outside. All these rooms are connected to the ample terrace which lies sheltered in the embrace of the slightly u-shaped home.
An easy staircase leads down to another 4 rooms and 3 bathrooms, two ensuite with a shower and the third one with a roman style bath. Three of the rooms are used as bedrooms and connect to to another ample terrace. The fourth space is used for storage.
From the top terrace a large staircase leads down to the jasmine lined path to pool area which can also be reached directly from the lower level. A small shed is very convenient for storage of garden furniture and pool accessories. There is a shower and ample cotto sundeck that wraps around the mosaic tiled pool. The distance from the house as well as the delightful open views make this area into a private slice of summer paradise.
The property comprises a total of 2,35 ha of land none of which is fenced. Part of the land features a very nice producing olive groove, the remainder consists of arable land. There is ample parking space right in front of the entrance. The pool (6 x 11) area lies at a level slightly below the house and is shielded by a large hedge and pergola.
