Palazzo to restore with garden and olive grove between Todi and Perugia
This Italian Palazzo for sale is part of the ancient 14th century castle walls of a pretty hilltop village, situated in the rolling hills between Todi and Perugia in Umbria. The origins of the Palazzo go back a long way, existing at least since 1163, when Barbarossa mentioned the property in his diploma. Its strategic position, guarding the right bank of the Tiber, allowed control of the road leading from Perugia to Rome, once travelled by mule drivers who gathered here and then descended to the plains. The Palazzo is situated in the main square. The imposing main entrance door on the ground floor is framed by a magnificent stone portal leading to the atrium with vaulted ceilings. There are several other entrances to cellars and storage rooms on the ground floor. A large staircase leads to the first floor with the main living area composed of an entrance hall, a spacious living room, a kitchen with fireplace, a sun lit covered terrace, connected with the ground floor and gardens by a spiral staircase, 4 sizeable bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the second floor there are several attic rooms which have good heights and could be converted into living space. The entire Palazzo is in need of restoration. A garden of approx. 460 m² as well as a small olive grove (approx. 1,200 m²) belong to the property.
