About Catherine Sutton

We are a married Australian couple with two adult daughters - one engineer/artist, one passionate foodie. We have loved visiting Italy for years, study the language, and looked to buy. We came upon the opportunity to build a contemporary highly ecological house in the hills of Umbria. This greatly appealed to the engineer and our project has been one of enthusiastic collaboration between us, our Australian architects, the German builders who prefabricated the house, and the Italian building team who completed the construction. Villa del Verde is our second home and we have furnished it with original Australian art. It embodies all that is contemporary in both furnishings and the latest technology for thermally efficient houses and we want others to embrace and enjoy all it offers.

Catherine Sutton purchased this house in 2011

Why Catherine Sutton chose Perugia

We particularly love being in a country environment while, at the same time, not being at all isolated. Our close proximity to a beautiful city, to real working italian towns, and many famous medieval and villages is unique and offers an vast choice of activities. We have two neighbouring families closeby with whom we have good friendships and hence a sense of community. One lives there permanently and the other on regular holidays. Our views are stunning and the environment peaceful and relaxing.

What makes this house unique

A point of difference for our house is obviously the International A+ energy certification it has received. Our state-of-the-art air exchange system allows the house to maintain an even temperature of your choice (low 20 degrees) all year round. Heating costs are not an issue as they are in a typical italian house. This makes the house comfortable and affordable all year round. The architecture and design is contemporary, and while local materials are featured, they are incorporated into a modern, light-filled, open, comfortable and highly efficient house. The house also has lots of security with outside sensor lights and an alarm system.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"All the previous villas we have visited have been the traditional brick style. Your modern, air conditioned, functional villa full of light

with the spectacular views was totally different and the best of all. We really enjoyed our stay. We have to say to that you have done absolutely

fabulous work to find the plot, design and construct the villa. The location of your villa is also very central to visit the nearby charming towns. We made day trips to Montepulciano, Gubbio, Orvieto and visited even Forum Romanum in Rome (missed it last time). Cortona, Siena and Florence would have been also easy to reach".
