Country House in Cortona, Tuscany, Italy
Cortona, Traditional farmhouse with olive grove and swimming pool
Lovely Tuscan country house in panoramic location near Cortona. The property sits in the hills, surrounded by olive groves and has unobstructed views of the Val di Chio and Montecchio Castle, with Montepulciano and Monte Amiata in the distance.
The traditional stone farmhouse of 160 m2 has been completely restored but retained its original character. The house is built on two levels against the hillside and its entrance is articulated by the stone stairs, the external bread oven and the pork stall (now used for wood storage).
The loggia on the first floor gives access to the living/dining room with a wood burning stove and open kitchen. This is a beautiful, high space in which the large dining table is the central element. On the same floor are two bedrooms, one with possibility for a high bed, and a bathroom with shower. Both the bathroom and the kitchen have recently been renewed.
The ground floor consist of a large room with a visible rock wall and original feeder bins and a separate room, both of which can be used as a studio or bedroom. Adjoining there is a spacious laundry area with shower and a storage room. The rooms are perfectly habitable and have access to the garden.
On a lower terrace is the Infinity pool of 11x5.5 meters, beautifully positioned between the forest and the stone terraces overlooking the valley.
The property comes with 10,325 m2 of land including about 300 olive trees and some woodland.
An ideal place to enjoy tranquility, privacy and nature. The town of Castiglion Fiorentino is 5 km away, with good facilities and a train station with direct trains to Rome and Florence.
Nearby art cities like Siena, Cortona, Arezzo and Perugia are easily reached by car.
