The first unit is a sky-terrace residential building with independent access, spread over two levels, featuring a spacious terrace with a magnificent panoramic view, totaling approximately 198 square meters. The property is accessed through the charming shared courtyard of about 54 square meters, which also houses an ancient stone oven. Next to it is the entrance to the second residential unit, which comprises about 60 square meters. It’s worth noting the rare possibility of reaching the residence by car.
Entering through the main entrance, a wide hallway with antique terracotta flooring leads to the ground floor, used as a sleeping area, housing two bedrooms, from whose windows you can admire a stunning panoramic view. The first room includes a walk-in closet and a mezzanine, while the second has an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub. At the end of the hallway, there is a second bathroom with a shower and a convenient storage room. A staircase flanked by a stone wall leads to the first floor, where you’ll find a lofted area used as a living room. This is followed by a bathroom and a study nook that ultimately leads to the spacious living area, the true heart of the house.
The architects, who are the children of the owners, have designed this space with the valuable creative contribution of their mentors, architects Ridolfi, Frankl, and Malagricci, combining the ancient with the contemporary in this environment. It is characterized by an elevated wooden platform that houses the living and dining areas, a central fireplace, and a gabled roof with exposed beams. To the side, you’ll find the open kitchen and a small dining area, while several storage spaces are located underneath the platform. The windows offer a dual view, on one side of the shared courtyard and on the south side, the external terrace, which provides breathtaking views of the Lazio hills, stretching from Mount Soratte on the left to Mount Argentario on the right. The heating system is autonomous with a gas boiler, and the windows are made of wood with double glazing on the ground floor and metal on the first floor.
The second residential unit consists of a single space on the ground floor, used as a kitchen/bedroom, with a staircase leading to the semi-basement level, which houses the cellar and an adjacent vaulted cave. This level also has independent access from the street. In the past, renovations were carried out on the internal ceiling and roof, which are now in solid wood.
Calvi dell’Umbria boasts a historically significant old town, the subject of refined redevelopment efforts that have made it one of the most desirable living areas in central Italy, attracting tourists year-round due to its rich artistic, cultural, and spiritual heritage.
