State and finishing
The property is in excellent condition, with luxury, high-quality finishings.
Both the villa and the outbuilding have been completely rebuilt on the site of the old Summer residence of the Bishop of Todi, who, in 1763, hired an architect to oversee its construction.
The rebuild has respected the features of the original building, using modern materials and construction techniques: the result is a property which is architecturally traditional but with high levels of comfort and safety.
The exteriors are in exposed stonework, while inside there are tiled floors and ceilings with wood beams and tiles.
The external fixtures are wooden, with double glazing, and the internal ones are natural solid wood.
The windows and French doors on the lower floors have shutters, also in solid wood, and wrought iron security gates.
All the buildings are connected by pretty walkways through the grounds, which are beautifully landscaped.
Poggio alla Regina is surrounded by 1.77 hectares of hilly, private land, used as grounds, with panoramic pool and adjacent pergola measuring around 26 sq.m.
Use and potential uses
The property is a beautiful, impressive residence, thanks to its large living areas, perfect for entertaining, the quality of the details and finishings, and to the convenient, panoramic location.
The many bedrooms in the main villa and in the outbuilding make it ideal for those wishing to host friends and relatives.
Poggio alla Regina could also be used as guest accommodation for high-end international tourists, for the reasons above and also because of its central location in relation to Central Italy’s major cities.
