Charming Umbrian country house with garden and pool in panoramic position with views onto Todi
The property consists of a superbly finished stone house set in approx. 2800 m² of fenced land with beautiful swimming pool, with fabulous views of the medieval town of Todi and the Tiber Valley. The house was built in 2002, in the traditional Umbrian country style, integrating modern technologies, thus creating a comfortable home in all seasons of the year. Bright rooms donate a lot of character and charm to the house, and the living area is enhanced by a very large covered portico and terraces which surround the house. From here you have access to a swimming pool with exceptional position. The portico and terraces accompany the entire front and west side of the house, offering plenty of shaded spots from which to enjoy one of the most beautiful views in Umbria. The irrigated garden around the house and pool area is well sculptured and planted with plenty of flowering plants and herbs. About 40 olive trees last year produced 45 litres of best virgin oil. The living area is a large room with high beamed terra cotta ceiling with very efficient wood burner. The kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances. Both, kitchen and living room, have access to the covered terrace. To the rear of the property there is another reception room, currently used as a study with a wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, and the tower room is used as 3rd bedroom, all are with bath/shower. Ancillary space includes a room designated as a storage/freezer room and a laundry room with appliances. On one side of the portico there is a summer kitchen which also has a pizza oven. To complete the property there is a carport for 2 cars and a large garden shed at the top of the garden, that can be used as a studio/workshop or for garden tools. The location of the property is superb: in a peaceful, yet not isolated position, and only 1,5 km away from the nearest village with some shopping facilities and an excellent restaurant. Todi is about 8 km away and has all amenities. Several charming locations such as Spoleto, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto are within easy reach (about 48 km). Perugia’s airport with regular flights to London Stansted, Brussels South and Milan can be reached in some 35 minutes. Rome is 134 km away, Florence about 200 km.
