Description

Description: prestigious house with tower, outdoor area, panoramic covered terrace and parking space. The property once belonged to 13-century poet Jacopone da Todi's family and overlooks the monumental staircase of the 14th-century S. Fortunato church

History: the restoration of the neo-Gothic facade dates back to the redevelopment works in the area in front of the temple of S. Fortunato, which consisted in the construction of the monumental staircase as designed by the architect Bazzani. The palace insists on the ancient Roman district as evidenced by the finds of mosaics on the cellars floor and by the adjacent paved road path found on various occasions under the street. This building therefore presents constructive fragments that from the medieval age to the late Renaissance age for its definitive structure. The walls of the house, brought to light on various occasions, therefore present a considerable variety, in terms of construction type and thickness.

200 sqm Garden, possible to park up to 2 cars

Bordered on three sides by neighboring buildings, you can also easily access it by car, thus being able to park inside, a real rarity in the center of Todi. At the entrance of the garden, an ancient century-old cypress, similar to the one in Piazza Garibaldi, and a beautiful front fence decorated with sandstone columns and arabesques that flank the non automated iron gate. There is a tap of town water for the irrigation
