Beautifully renovated 14th century Tenuta with 360° view near Todi in Umbria
On a hill, with 360° views over the surrounding valleys and castles around Todi, there is this historic Tenuta with three buildings, park with swimming pool and 13 ha of land. The property is fenced around the buildings, has an olive grove with about 1,000 olive trees, an orchard with about 100 trees, an organic vegetable garden and a small vineyard. About 7 hectares of arable land and 3 hectares of forest complete the property. Access to the property is provided by an automatic gate. The garden has a 6.5 x 12.5 m swimming pool with a counter-current system which works without chlorine. There are solariums around the pool, adjoining a pavilion and a small bowling area. On a separate side there is a covered parking lot for about 10 cars, which is not visible from the house and the pool. The buildings themselves consist of a main house with two wings, a large annex and another small outbuilding. The main building has 3 floors with a small tower. On the ground floor of the main house you find the entrance room with large stairs to the upper floors. To the left there is a beautiful living room with an original 17th century stone fireplace. On the right-hand side you reach the dining room and from there a large professional kitchen, and on the other hand the main dining room, with its fireplace and long wooden table, reminds you of the splendid dinners of the old noble families a few hundred years ago. A spiral staircase leads from the living room to the underground cellar. Numerous service rooms complete the ground floor. On the first floor you find the master bedroom with large wardrobe, en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi and sauna. From the master bedroom you reach the spacious and light-flooded studio with a few steps. This is the perfect private retreat where you can work, study or just read a good book in front of the fireplace. From the studio you have access to the tower that was used in the past to monitor the valleys around Todi. On the opposite side of the suite are two more rooms, one of which has its own bathroom. The entire building is equipped with a central vacuum cleaner with thirteen connections on the three floors. The second building, which, like the main house, has been traditionally restored, consists of two floors. On the ground floor there are four spacious double rooms, each with its private bathroom, all with direct access to the garden. The upper floor is accessible via an outside staircase. There is an approx. 50 m² large independent apartment with living room/kitchen with fireplace, sleeping area and bathroom. On the same floor you find a suite with living room and fireplace, two double rooms with shared bathroom and a double room with private bathroom. The second annex of approx. 60 m² is currently used as a multifunctional room. A project has already been submitted to the municipality to build an additional outbuilding to be used as a storage room. All three buildings have been restored with great respect for the architectural tradition of the area and only very high quality materials have been used. All bathroom fittings also have a high-class standard. All buildings were renovated in accordance with the latest earthquake-proof standards. All three houses are equipped with autonomous underfloor heating. Over the centuries, the property was transformed from a defensive structure into a manor house by the noble families who inhabited it. The oldest documents documenting the existence of this place date from 1290; it seems that the tower was built in the 14th century, while the two side wings were built in the 16th and 18th centuries. The position undoubtedly played a key role in the surveillance of territorial borders. A number of well-used communication channels of strategic and economic importance were controlled and possible attacks were prevented. Today the property represents a stately and representative residence in the middle of an untouched landscape, contact with nature and at the same time proximity to all modern facilities. The sought-after Todi is only 15 km away. This special property is ideally suited as a representative country estate with the possibility of hosting friends or business clients, but it also has a high renting potential by offering space for at least 20 people. It is also ideal as a boutique hotel, as it already offers all the facilities and amenities a guest is looking for.
