Description
This 19th century villa for sale was recently restored using antique building materials to preserve it’s status as a building of particular historical and architectural importance to the region. The group of buildings which make up the property are perched on an Umbrian hilltop with spectacular views over Orvieto, one of most beautiful towns in Italy, and over the Abbey of San Severo e Martirio, an Italian national monument. The property is made up of five separate houses:
The main Villa, built in the mid 1800s, has 4 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms over 460 sqm. It is built in the classic style for Umbrian country villas of this period. A solid square structure with a small central tower, it has 2 main reception rooms with ornately frescoes ceilings and a ample kitchen with a large open fireplace. 
The large agricultural building was added in the late 1800s and has been tastefully converted into 5 separate apartments which, together, offer 650 sqm of living space surrounded by panoramic terraces and gardens overlooking classic Umbrian countryside. The remaining 450sqm area of this building has been partially restructured and has valid planning permission for subdivision into a further 5 apartments.
The 300 sqm Storage building can, with the necessary permissions, be converted into a 200 sqm living space with spectacular views over Orvieto.
A separate 19th century 2 storey stone house requires restoration. With the necessary permissions, the 250 sqm house can be restored with the addition of a further 100sqm.
The 70 sqm limonaia (lemonary) requires only internal restructuring as the roof and floor of the building were recently restored. 
The 7m X 14m swimming pool overlooks Orvieto cathedral through the olive groves which surround house. It has an ample covered area for relaxing in the shade as well as a small equipment shed. 
The property sits on 9 hectares of Olive groves which are certified as biological and produce a DOP quality olive oil . This impressive and extremely prestigious property with fabulous views  is well maintained and offers considerable space for use as a private Home or to further develop into a business offering holiday accommodation. With some investment, it could make a perfect boutique hotel.
