Thick stone walls, terracotta tiled floors, exposed wooden beams: this Umbrian three-level house is located in a very panoramic position, with great privacy and a contemporary feel. The house, close to some small villages characterised by narrow streets and ancient churches, is decorated with custom made furniture and modern comforts such as wireless internet, a cooling system of new generation and a pool surrounded by a designed garden.
Located near the charming town of Todi, the property comes with its own olive groves and affords views of the scenic landscape from almost every angle. The interiors include a spacious living room, a dining area with garden vistas, a eat-in well-equipped kitchen and a master suite with a glass window overlooking the landscape. The estate includes 2,8 hectares of surrounding wood area and private
grounds, the close by restaurants serve local, earthy cuisine.
The home design, approached with research in the estate technical and historical contexts, results in a
contemporary result with stone, floors, quality wooden boards, and glass. The Swiss owners wanted to project the 100-years old cottage in the 21st century through a restructuring and expansion: no fossil energy is used for photovoltaic panels produce the energy that the house needs; the sanitary water is heated by the sun through thermal panels and rainwater should be collected in a large cistern to irrigate the lawn. A well ensures water supply during the rainless summer weeks.
The property comes with a woodshed freely usable for the fireplaces. The style encompasses traditional elements brought into the now with updated add-on’s for today’s lifestyles: there is a heated pool equipped with umbrellas and deck loungers, offering a breath-taking view of the valley. Modern, comfortable and soothing, this is a zen retreat full of light and a welcoming vibe. The interior of the
property measures 310 square meters plus 200 square meters of terraces and it can accommodate a total of 6 guests in the main 3 bedrooms plus 2 extra friends, in the summer only, in one extra bedroom
without cooling system.
