  • very private yet not isolated location
  • lovely south facing position with sunset guarantee
  • beautifully renovated and up to date
  • perfect symbiosis between old and contemporary
  • great independent guest quarters
  • the property is meticulously maintained

The house

The original old part of the house was built about 180 years ago. Today it is the charming core of the renovated and extended version of the home. As the house is partially constructed against a hillside it spreads out over three different levels. The outside showcases tuffo, the local stone, for all the original parts whereas the newer parts have been plastered. The combination enhances both types and creates a lovely contrast.  Theontemporary entrance with a beautiful metal door gives access to a lovely entree, a closed-in portico with lots of glass and light.

To the right lies an ample storage or workspace and in the back the boiler room. Straight lies the spacious dining room with minimalist fireplace and an original ceiling with small vaults, styled in a modern minimalist way.  To the left we find the kitchen which opens up to a terrace with a pergola and view of the garden and backdrop of hills.

From the dining room stairs lead up to the first floor which offers two good size bedrooms, a bathroom and a substantial terrace. With the open view of the surrounding countryside it is the perfect place to start or finish the day, to enjoy a night cap or morning coffee.

The lower level consists of an atrium with access to a bathroom, an extra large living room with adjoining covered porch and a bonus room to be used as office, tv or bedroom. From the lower level it is possible to connect internally to the modern extension. It features an open space living and kitchen as well as a bathroom on the lower level. The upstairs offers a delightful suite with a sublime balcony. It can work great as guest or rental accommodation.

The land

A total of around 9.000 sqm of land is included in the property. Along the road leading up to the property is a water storage tank, a carport with parking space and solar panels. The driveway leads down to the house and is closed off by a gate. The property is completely fenced which is fabulous for any dog owner. Well kept and producing olive groves are situated above and below the house. To the left lie 2 impressive caves dating back to the Etruscan era which are currently used as storage and garden shed spaces but could be used for many different purposes even as art or yoga studios. On top of these caves is a panoramic viewpoint with the old town of Orvieto clearly visible to the south. Behind the house lies the lush fairytale garden with a perfectly kept and level lawn making entertaining an effortless activity! An abundant green oasis with mature trees, views and see throughs just about anywhere. There is an ample choice between all of the perfect locations for drinks, a meal, relaxing and receiving guests.

The stylish long stretched pool is situated at a lower level and out of sight during the winter season. The sundeck around is comfortable and the views again breathtaking.

The surroundings

After descending the hilltop on which the property is located the first amenities are right around the corner. The stunning historic center of Orvieto is nearby and famous for its cathedral. The underground city, weekly market,  cultural events, shops, restaurants and of course the Umbria Jazz winter edition are still just a tip of the veil of what this town has to offer. With the train station and access to the A1 highway zipping over to Tuscany or Rome is quick and exploring the rest of Italy is as easy as can be.

Nearby Bolsena offers a beautiful volcanic lake and stunning medieval center. It’s the perfect place for an escape on hot summer days but equally so throughout the year. The annual Hortensia festival, concerts, exhibitions, lakeside dinner, a visit to the island or even scuba diving and other water sports, it’s all there! Other nearby treasures are  Todi, 40 km Montefiascone 28 km, Civita di Bagnoregio 21 km, also known as the dying city, and of course fabulous Viterbo a mere 40 km away!

The nearest international airport is Perugia at 82 km, followed by Siena 139 km and Rome at 158 km distance.

Simply get in touch incase you require more information or would like to schedule a visit. I will gladly assist you in any way I can. If you ask me if there’s  another property like this on the market right now, my answer is no, grab this steal while you can!
