Just below the hilltop town of Cortona and in one of the most beautiful areas outside of town, The House on the Hill is a small villa in a fantastic hillside location with the possibility of expansion.
The villetta stands in fenced grounds of circa 1 hectare (2.5 acres) with beautiful views on all sides and a stunning south facing view out over the Val di Chiana.
It is about 1.8 kms from the town itself – walking distance for the fit – or alternatively a five minute drive.
The house was built in the 60’s and is a bit of an ugly duckling externally, but the current owners have created an extremely elegant and welcoming ambience inside.
With the possibility of an expansion – 40 mtsq of living space, 40 mtsq for laundry/technical room – the house’s potential is infinite.
It has all the right requisites to merit a further investment: a premium location, views, vicinity to services and Cortona’s town center.
It currently consists of an entrance hallway, a large and light living room with an antique stone fireplace, a spacious kitchen, one large and luminous bedroom with a big ensuite bathroom, a second bedroom with a bathroom and shower and a good sized hall coat cupboard.
The current spaces would lend themselves to creating a third bedroom or study by dividing the enormous living room with the possibility of converting the hall coat cupboard into a third bathroom. There is also a spacious basement garage with ceiling heights of 1.80 m.
Having been built in the 60’s when regulations were few and far between, the property is wonderfully light with large windows and views on all sides.
This would allow for a three or four bedroom home possibly by creating another floor.
A swimming pool would definitely be permitted.
Within a short walk there is an excellent delicatessen/mini supermarket and at a distance of about 1 kilometer there is the lively village of Pergo with bar, pizzeria, supermarket and Relais hotel/restaurant Corte dei Papi. Cortona is within a five minute drive as is Camucia with its main line Rome-Florence-Milan train station allowing for quick and easy access to airports and cities.
