Prestigious country estate for sale with a private golf course near Todi in Umbria
This prestigious property for sale is located in the municipality Monte Castello di Vibio in Umbria between the towns Todi and Marsciano.
The gently sloping and well laid-out grounds with a vineyard, olive groves (about 400 olive trees) and a private 4-hole golf course (7 tees, plays as 12-hole) enjoys panoramic views towards south across the hills and onto Todi.
The property is composed of two buildings, a restored farmhouse and a rebuilt country house, which has been divided into two separate units for guests and the caretakers. All restoration and construction works were carried out with selected traditional building materials such as terracotta ceiling tiles, wooden beams and exposed stonework, while contemporaneously introducing up-to-date technology. Thermal solar systems are used to support the central heating system (gas- and pellet burners) in both houses and to heat the swimming pool. Three photovoltaic modules generate electricity, which is fed into the grid to reduce energy costs.
The main farmhouse offers three floors, with on the ground floor a modern and well-thought out kitchen with fireplace, a large living room with fireplace and access to the garden, a sitting/TV room, a dining room with access to the garden, studio, and a bathroom. There is further more a covered portico for outdoor living during the summer months.
The first floor can be reached via internal stairs, as well as from the outside, and offers a comfortable lounge, four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
A small separate guest apartment on the second floor, accessible from the outside, features a living-/bedroom with kitchenette (air-conditioned) and a bathroom.
The well maintained, mature Mediterranean gardens around the house comprise a heated swimming pool with sun terrace and technical room, set beside two evocative lily ponds, a BQQ and pizza oven, a wooden horse stable and a large conservatory.
The second rebuilt country house features two separate apartments.
The first apartment, ideal for guests, has a kitchen/dining room with a gallery and large portico, two bedrooms, and a bathroom on the first floor. The lower floor offers a large sitting room with fireplace, a third bedroom and a bathroom.
The second apartment has a kitchen/living area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is inhabited by the caretakers. A spacious cellar is located below the caretakers' apartment and is used as laundry and for storing preserves, olive oil and wine.
