Recently restored to an exceptionally high standard, this elegant 19th century villa for sale in Umbria boasts spectacular views over the medieval town of Orvieto. The current owners have spared no expense in converting this property into what has to be one of the finest homes in the area.
The property consists of approximately 5 hectares of land consisting of the original formal box hedge garden and manicured lawns around the house with mature cypress, umbrella pines, an olive grove, vineyard, orchard, woodland and a new 6 x 12 metre infinity pool and various well appointed panoramic terraced areas.
When entering the property through the main entrance door you are immediately welcomed with a full view of Orvieto and being a notable building there is no lack of large windows that give an abundance of natural light rarely found in Italian country houses.
The main villla (420 mq) is on various levels and in the lower areas the grottos indicate that this site dates back to the Etruscans and there is also a Roman arch under the house. The formal living area consists of an inviting, vaulted entrance hall, living room, formal dining room, kitchen / dining room, 4 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a fifth bedroom in the tower, a sun room, study / office, powder room, laundry and a large underground garage of about 60 square metres with enough space for 3-4 cars.

The guest annex (87mq) is also self-contained with kitchen / dining, bedroom, bathroom and spacious living room, this could easily be adjusted to contain two bedrooms.
The central heating and hot water is fired by LPG in the winter months whilst solar panels provide for hot water during the summer. The property has mains water and a natural spring that is used to irrigate the garden.
