3 Bedroom House For Sale
Beautiful old restored farmhouse for sale in Tuscany, close to the town of Cortona, with outbuildings for further development and about 1.2 hectares of land including ancient olive trees.
The house is approximately 250sqm gross, laid out over two floors, with a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The building is actually split horizontally into two apartments, with an internal staircase to the first floor, which is actually accessed from the front of the building. There is a third story attic room on the oldest end of the house, which has bastions on its exterior and was likely a watch tower at some point in the distant past. The exterior of the house has retained much of its original and ancient character. Internally a lot of the original character has also been retained, with old beams and tile ceilings throughout, as well as original terracotta flooring on the first floor. The ground floor has been more recently restored, while the first floor could benefit from some modernising.
Adjacent to the main house is a pretty outbuilding, which is a wonderful project for someone looking to put their mark on the property. It could be an independent guest house, artist's studio, gym or wine cellar. As it is set at 90° to the house, with the entrance to the property between the two buildings, there is an exclusive-feeling courtyard effect. The land stretches some distance behind the house and into the valley, and is bordered on one side by the minor valley road, and on the other by a stream. In front of the house, beyond the main front garden, is a pretty field, where a swimming pool would be ideally situated. There is also the possibility to create a new driveway access through this lower field, thus closing off the existing entrance onto the road, for more privacy.
A very attractive proposition for those seeking a slice of real estate in Tuscany, and particularly well situated for Cortona lovers.
