Stunning setting for a contemporary stone farmhouse in captivating Umbria
Contemporary stone house with historic soul, skillfully restored from a 17th cent farmhouse between Todi and Orvieto. We are in one of the most attractive areas of Umbria, elected by Lonely Planet 'Best in Travel 2023'. Set on a hilly position with stunning views over an enchanting valley, the estate consists of a 5 bedroom-4 bathroom stone house (352 sq mt on 2 levels); a stylish swimming pool (5x10m) with stone paved solarium and sun lounge; a native landscaped garden with flowery borders and secular trees; pergolas covered by lush wisterias, courtyards, charming stone paths and sidewalks that underline the authenticity of the site and separate the building from the neighboring house.
Part of an ancient peasants' hamlet, the property includes 2ha land of olive trees (37) and woods, plus a portion of a driveway shared with the neighbours.
Despite the austere essentiality of an antique farmhouse, the house interiors are enriched by exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings and, nevertheless, prestigious period coatings and accessories which donate it a timeless elegance and undisputed style: the massive doors of walnut and the ‘pietra serena' fire place, all recovered from Renaissance castles; the thresholds and floors in terracotta craftsmanship of noble eighteenth-century origins.
The horse-shoe shaped plant creates a central sunset courtyard, an outdoor living room where most of the rooms face: airy and bright interiors thanks to the countless windows, 11 glass doors to let in light and create movement inside to out within the house. You enter the dining room, connected by two steps to the double reception room with magnificent antique fireplace. The kitchen, new and fully equipped, has its own fire place and independent access on the front courtyard. Of the 5 large bedrooms, 3 are en-suite and one of a large private terrace (56 sqm) from which you can enjoy the majesty of the valley below.
A property of refined taste has always been inhabited by international artists who have appreciated the authenticity of a slow-life setting, as well as a neighborhood composed of both local inhabitants and an international entourage.
