Introducing Villa Otium in Umbria, this remarkable estate, nestled near the picturesque town of Todi, boasts its very own olive groves and stands as one of the rare residences in Italy that leaves an almost negligible environmental footprint. Perched atop the property's most panoramic point, this three-level abode offers breathtaking vistas of the surrounding landscape from virtually every angle. The interior spaces are thoughtfully designed, featuring a generously sized living area, a dining room adorned with garden views, a well-appointed eat-in kitchen, and a master suite complete with a glass window that frames the mesmerizing landscape.
The architectural style seamlessly blends traditional elements with contemporary updates tailored for today's discerning lifestyles. Here, you'll find a heated pool adorned with umbrellas and comfortable deck loungers, all serving as the perfect vantage point for soaking in the valley's awe-inspiring beauty. Modern, inviting, and suffused with natural light, this villa provides a tranquil retreat that exudes warmth and serenity.
Spanning an interior area of 310 square meters, in addition to 200 square meters of terraces, Villa Otium comfortably accommodates up to 8 guests. The estate encompasses 1.5 hectares of lush woodlands and private grounds, creating an idyllic and secluded setting just a stone's throw away from Todi.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, this estate boasts four bedrooms adorned in a contemporary style, featuring color-washed walls in soft, muted tones, modern materials, and strategically positioned windows that frame picturesque views of the surrounding valley. The architectural design of the home reflects a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation, incorporating elements such as stone, high-quality wooden flooring, and expansive glass surfaces. The Swiss owners embarked on a mission to propel this century-old cottage into the 21st century, implementing eco-conscious features including photovoltaic panels for energy production, solar panels for heating sanitary water, and rainwater harvesting for irrigation, all while ensuring a reliable water supply from a well during rainless summer weeks.
The renovation of this property prioritized avant-garde materials and cutting-edge technologies, executed with precision by local artisans. The Casale's climate control system is exceptionally efficient, thanks to a heat pump and radiant floor heating, which maintain a consistently comfortable temperature year-round, eliminating the need for air conditioning or radiators. An innovative forced-air system further enhances the overall comfort of the residence, resulting in an impressive A4 energy efficiency rating for this farmhouse.
