It is placed on a hill at 411 m on the sea level and it offers a lot of panoramic points, where one can admire the hills the of the Middle Tiber Valley.
From Todi you can reach in a short time the most beautiful towns in Umbria: Orvieto and Perugia can be reached in about 40’ by car, while Spoleto and Assisi in a little less than one hour. The closest amenities and shops are about 4 km away. The nearest airport is the Perugia-Sant’Egidio airport, only 47 km away.
The dual carriageway E45 Orte-Ravenna passes close to Todi, while the Motorway A1 Milan-Naples is 35 km away.
The property, which has an excellent sun exposure from the morning to the night, is situated in a private position but not completely isolated since other farmhouses are at a short distance.
The property, easily reachable through an asphalted road, has two entrances: One on the rear and one more picturesque with a white road climbing up to the property.
Both the buildings and the garden offer a stunning panoramic view on the green surrounding hills and on the historic centre of Todi.
Description of the buildings
The property is made up of two detached houses (two former sighting towers), an outbuilding and a forth building to be built.
The first tower (418 sqm/4499 sqft), currently used for holiday rentals, has undergone conservative renovation works, which made the old elements stand out, such as arches, original ceilings and old doors, unifying them with modern elements like the elevator.
The house is laid out on four levels and includes five bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, and a library/bedroom on the ground floor. On this floor there is a very large and bright living area composed by a large sitting room with two brick arches, a kitchen and a half bath for the living area.
The other floors are connected by an elevator and an external staircase.
On the first floor there is another living room with fireplace and other three bedrooms.
Other two bedrooms are on the second and on the third floor.
The second tower (170 sqm/1830 sqft), which has undergone equally accurate conservative renovation works, is laid out on three levels and includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the upper floors, while on the ground floor there is a large entrance room, a kitchen and an evocative living room.
The outbuilding, which has a surface of 42 sqm (or 452 sqft), includes a garage with a bathroom and a laundry room.
All the taxes for the forth building of about 120 sqm (or 1292 sqft) have been paid, all the projects have been approved and the works can start immediately.
State and finishes
The two towers, which date back to the 12th-13th Centuries and have a remarkable historic-cultural value, have been recently carefully restored with the collaboration of the Sovrintendenza dei Beni Culturali (Ministerial Authority for Cultural Heritage) and are in excellent condition. The property features, in addition to the stunning panoramic view one can enjoy from every room, a perfect match between old elements and modern conveniences. The property boasts walls with exposed stone, stone arches, brick arches, ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles, terracotta flooring, wood-block flooring and old fireplaces, and is equipped with an elevator, ceiling vans, electric gates and door-phones.
The two towers are surrounded by about 2.6 hectares (or 6 acres) of land including an olive grove and a garden of 170 sqm enriched by beautiful ornamental and aromatic plants. Next to one of the two towers there is also a large panoramic terrace with a gazebo and a table, ideal for alfresco dining.
The 65 sqm pool has convenient Roman steps and external shower, it is 1.40 m deep and is surrounded by a solarium with stone paving. It is placed in a very panoramic position, is oriented towards south-west and it enjoys sun exposure all day long.
Use and potential uses
One house is currently the owner’s home, while the other house is used for holiday rentals.
The property can be used therefore for private use and for holiday rentals at the same time, generating an income. Otherwise, it would be possible to use a tower as a private home and the other tower to host friends and relatives.
