Umbria Real Estate Ref: ABODE SAN VALENTINO - Todi
Ancient church with tower, now converted into a luxury farmhouse, pool, artificial lake and land
There are many hypothesis regarding the origins of the town, but there is a legend according to which Todi was founded by the Veii Umbrians, a population who lived in the Tiber Valley. While the works to build the town along the banks were already begun, an eagle arrived while they were having dinner and took away the tablecloth taking it up to the top of the hill.
The inhabitants of the Valley thought that this event was an early warning and this is the reason why they decided to built the town on the top of the hill.
At 15 km from the historical centre of the town, at the border of a small hamlet and in a very panoramic position, lies this ancient church, today completely renovated and converted into a luxury farmhouse property.
The abode, dating back to 1200, is completely original and, including the church disposed on two levels and a tower, is comprised as follows.
Ground floor: boardroom realized in the nave of the old church, large living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry, bedroom with bathroom and storage room. The ceilings are high and have beautiful wooden beams and terracotta tiles, there are exposed stone walls with original frescoes.
First floor (accessible both through an internal staircase or an external one) hall, large bedroom with bathroom and two bedrooms both with bathroom en suite. In the tower, then, there is a fourth bedroom with en suite bathroom.
