A wonderful property located halfway between Perugia and Todi, consisting of a large villa in an elevated position with an infinity swimming pool, 9 ha of land and spectacular 270 degree views over the Tiber valley and the surrounding hills.
The ancient ruined farmhouse that was on the site was demolished and completely rebuilt in 2008 and the original weathered stone was reused to clad the new building. This recalls the traditional rural Umbrian building style but with modern construction techniques including the latest anti-seismic design, larger windows, a more contemporary layout, state-of-the-art technology and very high quality materials and finishes.
The house is spread over 3 floors with an overall internal surface area of ca. 685 m² offering ample sun-lit rooms. The outside terraces in pietra serena with 2 electric sun awnings add a further 120 m².
Completing the property are a beautiful panoramic 14 x 7-meter infinity pool with a huge sun terrace (100 m²), an olive grove of 300 trees, an orchard and a vineyard with some 400 vines (Sangiovese, Merlot and Sagrantino). Of the total 9 ha, some 4 ha are ancient woodland surrounding much of the boundary.
It is important to emphasize the extreme attention to detail that the owners have dedicated to living comfort and sustainable living. The house incorporates very efficient insulation of the outer walls, roof and basement floor with triple walls and 10 cm of PIR insulation, double external walls for the whole basement floor, double glazed oak windows with solar filter, oak shutters, built-in fly screens to all windows and large cherry wood doors throughout. Heating and hot water is generated by a combination of a ground source heat pump with 4 x 120 meter deep wells in the bedrock and 12 solar panels, which also heat the pool. There is underfloor heating to all 3 levels, which is split into 7-zones. There are also automatic gates with a video entry system with screens on all 3 floors and a water softener with a 1000 litre reserve tank in the event of water shortages. The swimming pool and garden are supplied with water from a 200,000-litre water tank that is replenished by rain water from the roof and terraces.
On the ground floor, there is a large entrance hall with a basalt staircase leading to the first floor, a toilet and cloakroom. From the hall, there is an open brick arch leading to a huge kitchen/diner of 60 sqm with a contemporary German kitchen, a large stone fireplace in peperino and a dining area. This is connected through a large brick arch to the main living room, also with fireplace and access to the garden. In addition, there is another spacious lounge with fireplace and access to a large covered terrace overlooking the pool and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Completing the ground floor is a large study (which could be used as a bedroom).
The first floor is composed of a master bedroom suite of 60 m² with panoramic balcony, private bathroom and dressing room, two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and three more bedrooms sharing a family bathroom (shower and bathtub). All the bedrooms are large doubles.
On the basement floor, there is a garage for 4 cars, two wine cellars with wine-making equipment, a large playroom which could be transformed into staff accommodation, a kitchen/laundry room, two storage rooms and a huge bathroom which is currently used as a home gym, but which offers the possibility of installing a sauna.
