Beautiful property with spectacular views over the Umbrian countryside near Todi
A beautiful Italian property consisting of two houses, a large swimming pool (12 x 5 m) and a small annexe building. The property has spectacular views over the Umbrian countryside, a small castle and the Tiber river, and is situated at only 15 km from the famous, lovely town of Todi. Both houses are well restored, maintaining most of the original features. They are close to each other, but each is autonomous. The annexe building (20 m² with bathroom and air-conditioning) has been recently restored and is used as an art studio as well as additional living area. The main house, dating back to the 18th century, has two floors and a large (60 m²) panoramic covered terrace. The main door leads into the upper floor, where there is a living room with a large stone fireplace, two bedrooms and bathroom. A staircase leads down to the ground floor where there is a large living room with access to the terrace and garden. On this level there is also a kitchen and another small single bedroom and bathroom. The house was renovated some years ago and is fully functional. The second house is built on one floor and consists of a spacious living room with a large stone fireplace and kitchen corner, three large bedrooms and three bathrooms. Each room has high ceilings with beautiful chestnut beams and terracotta tiles. The land around the houses and pool includes olive trees, oaks, cypresses, lavender and rosemary bushes. A path leads up from the houses, through a wood to the highest point of the property, from which there are breathtaking views of Todi and the surrounding countryside. The pool and sun terrace are situated amidst an olive grove below the houses. Although the property is privately positioned, the medieval town of Todi can be reached in about 20 minutes by car. The town offers a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants, several banks, a post office and a theatre.
