Il Torrione is a country house full of atmosphere. It is located in a panoramic position and enjoys a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside. It is close to the external walls of the medieval castle of Monteleone, an 11th-century citadel built by the people from Orvieto to protect its northern border territories.
The property is independent, while not secluded. It contains the main building, an elegant cottage, 4ha (9,88ac) of land, and has the right to build an extra 100m² (1.076ft²).
The buildings were carefully restored and the result is a unique residence, where the traditional characteristics (facades in stone, wooden fixtures, and fireplaces in stone) blend with a very modern design.
The main building has 200m² (2.153ft²) over two floors that are connected by an internal stairway and also by a beautiful external stairway in stone and bricks. The ground floor contains a kitchen, a wide salon that gives onto the terrace, a bedroom, and laundry. On the first floor, there are two spacious bedrooms en-suite and a charming panoramic terrace.
The cottage is also on two floors. The ground floor has a total of 70m² (753ft²) and features large windows that give onto the garden. There is a large salon with a fireplace, a kitchen, and an elegant bedroom en-suite. In the basement, there are storage and boiler rooms.
A wide yard surrounds the buildings. There is a spacious country garden, an area where a panoramic swimming pool can be built. A wide automated gate controls the drive to the parking area.
The property has about 4ha (9,88ac) that contain an olive grove, vineyard, and woodland. Here is possible to build an additional 100m² (1.076ft²) building.
