Exclusive modern design villa with pool in panoramic position close to Todi in Umbria
An extraordinary newly built villa for sale designed by a renowned architect to merge minimalism and rural culture, resulting in a unique example of energetic auto sufficiency, style and design. Inspired by love for the city of Todi and the mysticism of the Umbrian hills, this is a house in which the fine-taste and design meet passion and respect for nature, whilst seeking to coalesce with it. The project fits perfectly in the surrounding landscape, and results in a technologically avant-garde and eco-sustainable home. The ca. 1,5 ha gardens, designed to blend in perfectly with the surrounding landscape, consist of a lawn with lavender, rosemary and broom borders as well as various fruit and olive trees. The panoramic infinity pool faces the views and is surrounded by a teak and grey stone paved area. The single level house has the aspect of six little houses, each with French Windows with direct access to the garden, which are all internally connected. The layout is typical of a row of barns, and is commonly found in the north of Italy. The sitting area is accessed from the outside patio, which runs across the centre of the house. To the left of the entrance is a hallway that leads to the TV room and to two bedrooms with private bathrooms. The hallway leads us back to the living area (the heart of the house) which is a unique and large, bright room with three large French windows leading into the front garden, and two large rectangular windows facing the back gardens. This multifunctional and completely open-plan kitchen and dining area is an extraordinary space where every tone of white is perfectly enhanced by the strong colours of the furnishings and the artwork which harmoniously interrupt the monochrome. The sitting room has four sofas, three of which are arranged around the fireplace. The walls are adorned with bookshelves and pieces of art. A hallway leads from here to the master bedroom, which is preceded by a shower room. This bedroom has a French window that opens onto the side of the house where the swimming pool is situated and a large jacuzzi is encased in a teak deck on the other side of the room underneath the window. A walk-in wardrobe is next to the jacuzzi. On the other side oft he house there is a small independent studio apartment with living/sitting area, kitchen corner, gallery sleeping area and bathroom.
