A separated large studio apartment, with its own entrance, is located into the main residence. Villa Design is set in panoramic location 11 km from Todi and a short drive from the fist village.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY
Recently constructed by a valued architect, with state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials both in the appliances and the finishings, Villa design features unique architecture, 6 cottages in a row, connected internally, with large French windows which open onto the panoramic garden.
The villa measures 350 sq.m in total, with the addition of a large pergola at the front of the house and a second spacious pergola in the pool area.
Villa Design has just one floor and is currently split into two areas: one which is used as the main residence and the other, a large studio apartment with loft and separate entrance, ideal as for those who look for more privacy or for occasional visitors.
The entrance to the main house can be found alongside the pretty pergola overlooking the valley, equipped with seating area and large table for outdoor dining: inside, on the right, there is the large open-plan living area, one bright space featuring a spacious functional kitchen with island, the large bright dining area completed by the annexed sitting room with fireplace and hoe theatre. Next door there is the stunning master bedroom, with sunken bathtub, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom.
To the left of the entrance there is a sitting room/studio with fireplace, two further double bedrooms and two bathrooms with walk in showers.
The villa enjoys considerable air circulation and cross-breeze. Fans are provided.
The studio comprises a living area with 2 joinable single beds that are larger than standard single beds (1 metre wide), a bathroom on the ground floor and a mezzanine with double bed, the ceiling of the mezzanine is low, with 2 skylights, one of them over the bed. The mezzanine, together with some steps to the ground floor, makes the studio not ideal for young children or people with restricted mobility, but is ideal as fourth bedroom with private bathroom, so that the property can accommodate up to 8 (+2) people. The living area of the studio is furnished with 2 single beds that are 1 metres width, larger than a standard single bed), if joined, is possible to obtain a very large double bed. The rental of the studio has an extra cost.
If just the villa is rented (up to 6 people) and the studio is empty, the rental rate would be lower and none would stay in the studio, so that guests of the villa would have the exclusive use of the property they rented, with park and pool.
Villa Design is in perfect conditions. The designer, a famous architect, intended it for his own use and has used the best construction materials, high quality appliances and perfect finishings.
The cladding on the outside is exposed brick, the roof is covered with sheets of zinc/titanium and the fixtures are laser-cut sheet metal with double glazing. The floors are in grey cement finished with quartz.
Baby equipment available: cot/baby bed, high chair, changing table, baby tub, potty.
The villa will have underfloor cooling system installed in the first months of 2020 (not air conditioning) that can be used in the hottest periods of the year; it will have an estimated extra cost that goes from a minimum of 50 to a maximum of 100 euros/week. A clearer and more accurate extra cost will be determined when the system will be installed and used, and will be communicated before the arrival of guests.
POOL AREA AND GARDEN
The villa is surrounded by over 1.6 hectares of land with a small olive grove and a manicured garden around the property with plants including lavender, cypress, pomegranate, fruit trees, climbing ivy, mulberry, fig, scented plants and Boston ivy. A small vegetable garden is located behind the villa, in the barbecue area, with pizza oven.
Below the house, not far away in a more secluded and scenic location, there is the infinity pool, with undisturbed views and a pretty pergola shading the hammock underneath.
