Villa Torricella is a beautiful luxury villa on a hilltop that offers wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding Umbrian countryside near Todi. Within walking distance, there is a small hamlet that has basic food shops. The medieval town of Todi is a short drive away, and features a full array of shops and restaurants. The location of the villa is ideal for visiting all the historic and artistic cities of central Italy, and the Etruscan settlements that are heavily present in this area.
The property is entirely fenced-in to afford total privacy. In front of the villa is an external staircase leading up to the main entrance. The house is exquisitely furnished with antique pieces and art collections that are priceless. Most of the ceilings boast wood beams and the floors are in handmade cotto set in traditional designs.
Built into the top and side of a hill, the Villa develops on three different levels. There is a lovely living room with a fireplace near the entrance, with antique furniture throughout the room in addition to satellite TV and a stereo system with a CD player. Another formal living room is downstairs with a large central fireplace. It is separated by an arched hallway to create more intimate spaces. On the ground floor, there is a formal dining room with high ceilings and a large set of French doors that open onto the kitchen. The beautifully decorated kitchen featuring decorative ceramic tiles designed by the owner has a central island with a dishwasher and sink, and is fully equipped with a large double refigerator with freezer, gas stove, two ovens, grill and a raised fireplace. At the end of the kitchen is a breakfast niche surrounded by glass bay windows with door to the outside garden.
From the upstairs living room, there is a door leading to the master bedroom and sitting area. This bedroom has two walls of closets and a large ensuite bathroom. On the other side of the living room, there is a twin bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Next to the living room is a landing that leads down to the lower level of the villa. The study is off this landing with a telephone and fax. Another double bedroom and ensuite bathroom are on this level. The fourth bedroom and ensuite bathroom is on the lower level.
The grounds of Villa Torricella boast beautifully kept hedges, lawns and flowerbeds. The gardens are filled with flowers and very well maintained. There is a private swimming pool in the rear garden, finished in blue tiles, and next to it is a trellised pavilion that provides ample shade. Villa Torricella has several entrances, the majority of which open on the covered porticos that surround it. These porticos are fully furnished and ideal for enjoying meals "al fresco" while gazing at the unspoiled countryside view, or just for lounging and relaxing.
The villa is rented with a maid that comes for four hours daily for an additional charge. Only the maid has access to the laundry facilities and she charges a fee per hour to wash and iron clothes.
