ITALY, LAZIO, VITERBO
Incredible jewel of a house in a village Alta Tuscia surrounded by a private terraced garden on various levels with large jacuzzi overlooking the valley below and with the delicate sound of the river that flows calmly at the foot of the village.
In an amazing village in “Alta Tuscia”, wedged between Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, whose origins go back as far as the Etruscan people. The area is characterized by the famous “badlands” particular formations of the land that give an almost lunar aspect to the territory. Together with its neighbouring village, they represent two of the borders of Tuscia, an area inhabited by the Etruscans and still bearing various artifacts dating back to the period of their splendor. A short distance away some of the places made famous by pilgrims who used to go on pilgrimage to the Vatican City, such as Montefiascone, Acquapendente, Orvieto and many more.
Perched in the heart of the small town, with exposure to the outside, the small independent house of about 87 sqm, once a peasant house, has been carefully restored, with a lot of work and passion to bring it to a splendor never seen before.
The house follows the shape of the fortress on which it rests, therefore on the street level there is an entrance room and a service bathroom. Going down the stone staircase that follows the shape of the rocky wall, there is a second bathroom and further down the sitting room with a delightful fireplace and the glass door which opens onto the panoramic terrace. Beyond the sitting room, the dining room and kitchen, also opening onto the terrace.
Going up a few steps there is sleeping area, with two double bedrooms and a bathroom, the latter overlooking the part of the terrace above, a terrace that leads to another double bedroom with private bathroom. In this part of the terrace, in a more secluded area, the large Jacuzzi protected by a straw pergola which provides some shade.
The terraced outdoor area extends along the entire front of the house.
