Information

Umbria Dream is a fascinating villa where rural Umbrian tradition has been mixed with a modern architectural project based on luxury, elegance and comfort. An amazing example of contemporary rural architecture, where each single element and detail has been especially planned and created. Spacious and light indoor areas, classic openings that have innovative dimensions and proportions, allowing a fluid dialogue with the natural surroundings. The fusion of architecture and landscape can be felt in every corner of the building. The project was born from a passion for Umbrian nature and the desire to create a 'buen retiro' whilst carefully considering appearance, comfort and functionality. Umbria Dream is, without a doubt, the ideal house for those who wish to 'live' nature to the full whilst enjoying the benefits of an elegant abode where luxury and design have been simply and naturally considered. The villa is rich in beautiful art-work, good-taste and technological appliances- making it ideal for any numerous family.

 

LOCATION

This is one of Umbria’s most beautiful areas, 10 minutes driving distance from the historic centre of Todi, in a panoramic and secluded location, Umbria Dream has a beautiful view of the wide, green Umbrian valley.

Situated in the winemaking area of Sagrantino and Grechetto, the property is not far from some of Umbria’s important medieval villages and historic centres, rich in art and interesting food and wine tours, such as Montefalco (26 km) and Bevagna (29 km) which can be reached in about half an hour.

The farmhouse is also in a central position in relation to the main Umbrian cities: thanks to the E45 motorway just 3 km away, it is possible to get to Orvieto (42 km), Spoleto (43 km) and Perugia (45 km) quickly.

Rome and its airports are around an hour and a half by car.

A short distance away from the farmhouse, 15 minutes on foot, there is a well known resort which offers therapeutic body treatments. It has a wine cellar and a great restaurant. Less than a quarter of an hour away by car there are two tennis clubs, horse riding centres, archery and mountain-biking.

 

The nearest golf course (18 holes) is in Perugia.

TODI: Reached by an exciting drive through winding roads and hairpin turns, this ancient city is an unexpected delight. Todi has retained much of the original features and charming character of the town's diverse historical periods in the face of passing time. With a rich history that dates back to around 1300 BC, Todi was settled by the Umbri, an ancient pre-Etruscan people who gave it the name Tudere.

 

 

GARDEN AND POOL

The large garden have multiple sitting/lounging areas to enjoy dining alfresco or just to take in the view and spectacular sunsets. Particular care has been taken in the creation of the outdoor spaces: the farmhouse is surrounded by a large land of 3 hectares. Starting from the entrance, a beautiful drive bordered by hedges leads up to the residence. Secular oaks, olive trees, flowers and numerous lavender bushes encompass the well-kept lawn and garden surrounding the residence, extending all the way to the panoramic pool, which is set in a discreet location next to the farmhouse, overlooking the valley.

The infinity pool area has a large umbrella and sunloungers, to enjoy the pool in the hottest months.

 

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE VILLA

 

GROUND FLOOR

entrance is through solid wood framed French windows which lead us to the beautifully furninshed living area. Four French windows open onto the garden and we can immediately tell that we are in a very special place: contemporary but warm and welcoming at the same time. An impressive curtain divides the sitting room (which consists of a central fireplace, a large sofa, leather armchairs and TV) from the dining room which has a large table that seats 14 people, benches and velvet cushioned chairs. Modern and classical art sit side by side in perfect harmony throughout the property, in a game of balance between natural light and indoor spaces. The boldness of the straight lines used in the design is broken by an imposing helical staircase which is certainly the main architectural feature. Every piece of furniture, object and minor detail has been studied, planned and made with incredible care, using only the best available prime materials and fabrics. We can notice the soft elegance of the neutral colored linens which surround the windows and doors, the fabrics used for the sofas, the warmth of the persian rugs and the great attention that has been paid to the lighting elements, all of which have been chosen with care from some of the most significant Italian designers. The dining room leads to a large kitchen, characterized by modern and essential details with straight and rigorous lines that give a sense of cleanliness. High tech chromed steel integrates perfectly with the black marble work surfaces and the warmth of the natural materials in an appealing chromatic dialogue. There are two work/ preparation areas, one is a central island with a two-tone work surface, a 5 hob cooker encased in black marble and a a wooden bench with 12 stools. On the opposite side of the kitchen, underneath a large window ( from which we can admire a beautiful view) we have a double sink, and a single strong flame hob, a beautiful fireplace for grilling and barbequing and a wall covered in shelves and cupboards with every kind of electrical appliance. Extra large oven, microwave, extra-large fridge / freezer with 2 chilled cabinets full of wine that is available to buy, dishwasher. One door leads to the larder, wine cellar and utility room ( with washing machine and dryer), and another leads to Bedroom 6, with a double sofa bed and ensuite shower-room. A french window opens onto the outside eating area underneath the porch.

A door leads from the dining room into a hallway with cloakroom and wardrobe, and leads to Bedroom 5: a television room with a double bed and a window which looks out onto the garden and a bathroom with shower.

 

 

UPSTAIRS

The sinuous helicoidal stairway leads to the upstairs sitting room, which has a large plasma screen TV, a corner fireplace, a large and comfortable sofa and various chairs.
