Description

Contemporary rustic haven for a family exodus

Todi is a historically rich medieval walled town cresting a hill on the east bank of the river Tiber and nearby is another delightful Italian gem: an extraordinary modern luxury villa built on the ruins of a 19th century farmhouse and immersed in the blissful silence of the Umbrian hills.  With a design based on the architectural style of a traditional rural home, every element and detail of this spacious house is meticulously planned to provide a retreat of optimum luxury, elegance and comfort.  The bright interior spaces are graced with windows of innovative dimensions and proportions that create fluidity with the villa’s natural surroundings and outdoor spaces.  The owners’ passion for the Umbrian countryside is evident in the villa’s grand design: one fusing architecture to landscape and fitting a rustic retreat with the latest in technology.  The carefully tended garden naturally borders the surrounding fields and is edged by woodlands on the side of the villa’s main entrance.  The opposing side of the property features a sizeable and attractively tiled infinity swimming pool and terrace, which are positioned to capture the wonderfully romantic vista of rolling hills, woodlands, villages and the Martani Mountains.  The expansive and covered terrace has a comfortable outside lounge and a spacious dining area plus three French windows that open to the indoor living, dining area and the kitchen respectively.  Bold straight lines, whitened beam ceilings and an imposing helical staircase that sinuously connects the downstairs living area with the upstairs lounge and the bedrooms are just some décor highlights.  Custom-made furnishings dress the villa and include designer sofas, leather armchairs and a dining table around which 14 can sit either on a cushioned velvet banquette or chairs.  Elsewhere, elegant Italian-made lighting features and local linens in neutral colours enhance the villa’s transformation into a very special place, in which guests can enjoy also beautiful modern and classical works of art positioned in perfect accord.

The villa is arranged on two levels and features 5 spotless, modern bedrooms (4 upstairs all en suite) that sleep up to 12 persons.  The sensuous leather floor and luxurious golden stone bathroom will enthral the occupants of the master bedroom and opens to the modern art-filled upstairs lounge.  On the opposite side a hallway leads to 3 bedrooms, of which one has 2 large single bunk beds.  A bedroom (with double sofa-bed) facing the garden has versatility for use as either a charming ground floor bedroom or guest room, or as a children’s playroom or a quiet study.  The fully appointed and fitted high-tech steel kitchen is modishly chromatic, with black marble work surfaces and a central island and breakfast bar.  A grill/barbeque and chilled wine cabinets are amongst the many features and the kitchen provides multiple access to the dining room, a larder, the owner’s staff quarters and the al fresco dining terrace.

This is a luxurious family holiday villa that is expansive and open, ever ready to embrace visitors within its charming and elegant comfort. It is a uniquely private and rustic family retreat that benefits also from CCTV, Wi-Fi and air conditioning installations.  Todi is an important historic town a short car ride away (10 minutes) from the villa and is equidistant from Umbria’s other jewels: Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Terni, Spoleto, Gubbio.  The views from town are breathtaking and there you will find also an extensive range of shops and restaurants, including local Umbrian food, fine craft and linen boutiques.
