In one of Cortona's most prestigious areas and within walking distance of the town itself, a lovely house of 250 mtsq (gross) with wonderful views and all of its original features intact.
The house is located below Santa Maria Nuova one of Cortona's oldest and most revered churches which dates back to the 16th century. This particular area of Cortona â€“ categorised as zone A â€“ is protected, meaning no new buildings can be constructed in the vicinity. As a result, it is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas in and around Cortona and hence its premium status.
The house itself has a cottage-like quality to it, redolent of times past, probably due to the non-invasive modifications that have been done over the years in order to maintain its natural character. All mod cons are however present, such as air conditioning, central heating, new shutters, telephone, wifi, satellite.
It consists of a kitchen, dining room and living room with antique stone fireplace on the ground floor with external access to a bathroom, a store room (used as a bedroom) and a laundry room. There is also a covered porch for dining 'al fresco'.
On the first floor there is a large landing leading out to the house's external staircase, a master bedroom with bathroom and dressing room, a second bedroom with bathroom and a walk through room which could be used as a third bedroom.
The property has a well maintained private access road of approx. 500 metres. It also has some hectares of surrounding land with a wonderful array of mature trees, plants and bushes as well as a vegetable garden, olives and vines. There is a couple who look after the house and maintain and work the land. There is also a sizeable garage which is also used for storage.
