Gorgeous, restored country house on the hill, secluded but not isolated location, with convenient access, between Todi and Avigliano Umbro. Spacious open-plan living area with large windows, 4 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and around 5.8 hectares of land with 2.6-hectare fertile olive grove and pool.
Situated on top of a small hill, the property benefits from a stunning view, with 360-degree panorama of the rolling Umbrian countryside.
From the front porch the view extends through the olive grove, the woods and deep into the outlines of the mountains in the distance.
The villa is in a peaceful, reserved, and at the same time easily accessible location, which is not isolated. The surrounding countryside is dotted with the occasional farmhouse and a few little villages, the closest being just 3 km away. It is situated between Todi (15 km) and Avigliano Umbro (9 km). The location is ideal for travelling to Umbria’s main cities, including Todi, Orvieto (35 km), Perugia (58 km) and Assisi (64 km), but also the two of Central Italy’s most important cities: Rome (108 km) is around an hour and a quarter away, while Florence (186 km) is two hours away.
Lake Bolsena is 49 km away while in an hour and a half you can get to the coast of Tuscany and the Tyrrhenian sea (112 km).
The nearest airports are Perugia S. Egidio (61 km), around 45 minutes, Rome Fiumicino (143 km) and Rome Ciampino (126 km), each around an hour and 40 minutes away.
Description of buildings
The villa measures around 365 sqm plus a 70 sqm portico, and has 20 sqm of utility areas for the swimming pool.
It is mostly laid out on one floor, where we find a beautiful living area with kitchen overlooking the covered outdoor area and a large double-height living room with fireplace. A hallway leads to a second sitting room with fireplace and the ground-floor sleeping area comprises two double bedrooms, each with private bathroom.
On the first mansard floor there is another room with a bed and a utility area with laundry room. There is one more bedroom on the floor below and a bathroom, plus a storage area.
The horseshoe-shaped layout covers a courtyard paved with handmade tiles and furnished with a large table for outdoor dining. In front of the living area there is a covered area with panoramic view of the valley and another table. Next to the kitchen there is a porch with fireplace, furnished as an outdoor “sitting area”.
State and finishing
This house has been built in the style of traditional Umbrian/Tuscan farmhouses, but has the advantage of being a completely new structure and therefore better performing in terms of comfort and the design of the rooms.
Unlike more traditional farmhouses, the house features open, airy and extremely bright rooms thanks to the large windows that allow you to enjoy the view even from inside.
The simple, essential style echoes the tranquility of natural area, in which the house is located and blends perfectly with the traditional materials such as the handmade tiles on the floors, the stone walls and the wooden-beamed ceilings. Its simple, practical and bright rooms invite you to enjoy the house with guests, but also create a peaceful, sanctuary and a family space.
Around the villa, there are around 5.8 hectares of land with a scenic landscaped lawn around the house, an area planted with cherry wood trees, a small woodland and a beautiful fertile olive grove of around 2.6 hectares.
The courtyard, the porch, the outdoor fireplace for cooking and outdoor dining, and the furnished covered area in front of the living area, provide a true extension of the house which can be enjoyed from spring until the early autumn.
The beautiful swimming pool with panoramic view is situated nearby in a private location.

Use and potential uses
This is the ideal property for those who are looking for a house in the countryside, but not isolated, which has larger, brighter rooms than the most rustic farmhouses, while respecting the typical character and traditional materials of Umbrian country houses.
This property would be perfect as a second home, which could be rented out through the weekly holiday rentals market, while not in use, to provide an interesting annual income.
