Il Nibbio is a splendid country estate. It is located in Umbria, halfway between the historic cities of Orvieto and Todi. It overlooks the Corbara lake, nestled between hillside landscapes of rare beauty where the view is lost in a riot of olive trees, vineyards, and Mediterranean scrub.
The property is significant, composed of: an imposing farmhouse (of 360 sqm) with a rectangular plan, a large external courtyard on which various outbuildings insist (of about 200 sqm), and a stunning French park (of 24,600 sqm).
The farmhouse is austere and imposing. It features beautiful natural stone exterior facades and refined interiors. The ceilings are in beams and tiles, terracotta floors, and stone fireplaces. The park is embellished with classic statues and theme fountains.
The farmhouse (360 sqm) is spread over three floors: two above ground and one basement:
- The ground floor, in which all rooms have a direct view of the gardens, is divided between: the kitchen with a fireplace, the dining room, the large living room, the study/living room also with a fireplace, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a hallway.
- On the first floor, introduced by a suggestive staircase with balustrade, are in order: three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, and a second hallway.
- The basement floor instead hosts a comfortable and spacious cellar.
The outbuildings (about 250 sqm) greatly enhance the potential of this property. They are all on the ground floor and divided between:
- The large warehouse
- The oven
- The chapel
- And a raw buildable surface (of another 200 sqm)
The external courtyard that runs along the house is large and very articulate. From the ridge of the hill, it descends to the beach in a succession of settings. First the avenue that serves the first of the three accesses, then the terraced gardens, and finally the magnificent park that opens as an amphitheater on the blue waters of the lake.
Here we find a great variety of plants (cypress, olive, vine, fruit, and ornamental plants) that give life to a colorful composition of great visual impact.
Use and potential
Il Nibbio is a property with enormous potential. The housing structure is imposing, and the location is exceptional. It is located in a protected area of great natural value, famous for its rich ecosystem and the presence of beautiful natural caves. Here it is possible to walk undisturbed along the shores of the lake or practice different sports activities (canoeing and kayaking, fishing, and trekking).
An exclusive home. A first or second home away from the city stress that lends itself: to be placed on the thriving international market of prestigious homes or become a prestigious accommodation structure.
Il Nibbio is a country estate close to the main services (bank, pharmacy, supermarkets which are a few km away). It is well connected with the main Umbrian towns: Todi is only 10 km away, Orvieto 13 km, and the motorway exit 8 km. Rome and its airports are an hour and 10 minutes by car.
