Properties bought in 2021 - an insight

Here are some insights into what passions moved our buyers to purchase the homes they bought...s.

The last two years have been challenging for many people, but in spite or because of Covid, the property market has been very robust. CI completed on 15 properties in 2021 alone - definitely a record - with some of the properties bought sight unseen. Fortunately, expectations were exceeded in all cases.  Here, we share some of the deciding factors in the choice of houses purchased.
Bought sight unseen by an American with Italian origins, this gorgeous little cottage in a small hamlet in the mountains above Cortona was quite literally the realization of a lifelong dream of owning a property in the home country.  The deciding factors were the view and the near vicinity of two excellent restaurants.
Also bought sight unseen, this bungalow is within walking distance of Cortona with wonderful views out towards Lake Trasimeno. The buyer, again an American, was a keen gardener with a modest budget who wanted something outside town, but reachable without a car.
Bought by a Scotsman, this 3-storey property with a private garden is inside a luxurious residential complex with extensive grounds and a large swimming pool, all of which is maintained year round. It was the perfect solution for the buyer who viewed the property at length, on a number of different visits, before committing himself to the purchase.
Beautiful, beautiful property in a prime location within walking distance of Cortona town.  The buyers, a Danish family, had visited Cortona just once before, but knew immediately it was where they wished to purchase their home in Tuscany; a dream they successfully pursued during 2021.
Just below Cortona and within walking distance of the town centre, this light and spacious apartment was chosen because of its enormous view out over the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno.  The New Year firework displays will be a vision to behold from the balcony!
Gorgeous 2-storey property with private garden in a luxury residential complex.  The buyers, a Belgian couple, were thrilled with their purchase and intend spending a number of months each year exploring Cortona and its surrounding areas.
This unique property, dating back to the 1500s, caught the attention of an American couple who are passionate about history and property.  In a whirlwind 72 hour trip, they flew from the US to Rome and sped their way to Cortona in time to visit the house before nightfall.  They closed the deal the next day!
