    About this property

    • This wonderful ten hectare estate consists of a Villa Padronale constructed during the second half of the 1800's. In perfect condition, having been recently restored, it is on two floors that are connected by a stunning marble staircase. The villa consists of two dining rooms, one with a vaulted ceiling, a sitting room with frescoed ceiling, a kitchen, a private chapel and four bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms. In addition there is a cantina, laundry, study and a couple of guest bathrooms. On the first floor there is a panoramic terrace with a view of the valley below. The villa is surrounded by a walled park that separates it from the rest of the estate.The large, two storey farmohuse was built at a slightly later date than the villa and was the centre of the farming estate as well as the place where the grain and wine was stored. It has been partially restored recently when a section of it was divided into five apartments.The remaining part requires completion though the roof has been done.The second, 200 square metre farmhouse requires renovation and can be increased by an extra 100 square metres if need be.The agricultural barn can be left as is or part of it can be knocked down and the metreage used for another dwelling. A lovely example of an Italian estate that has been carefully cared for and remains in an authentic state.

    Local information

    • Orvieto, Umbria

    Additional information

    • Orvieto is a city and municipality in the province of Terni in Southwestern Umbria. It is situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic rock. The site of the city is amongst the most dramatic in Europe, rising above the almost-vertical faces of cliffs that are completed by defensive walls built of the same volcanic stone; Tufa. The city was once called ‘Urbs Vetus' and has been populated since Etruscan times when it was a major centre, as the locally discovered artifacts in the archaeological museum attest. Orvieto is home to Etruscan ruins and the remnants of a wall that enclosed the city more than 2,000 years ago. An Etruscan necropolis, with a hundred or so tombs, sits at the foot of the butte surrounded by a vineyard and orchards.
