In one of Cortona’s pretty and quiet backstreets, just outside the town’s limited traffic zone and therefore easy to reach both on foot and by car, a really beautiful noble palazzo of 200 mtq with many original features that highlight its historic past.
Built on four floors the building is luminous with spectacular views out over the Valdichiana from the upper floors.
The building’s historic past can be noted by the hand-made antique brick in which it was constructed, the arched and decorated stone entrance doorway, the original floor tiles and ceiling beams, the central stone staircase and a wealth of other characteristics which give it an elegant timelessness and genuine authenticity.
The house consists of the following:
On the ground floor – entrance hallway, coat cupboard and large cantina which houses an extremely old well once used to provide the property’s running water. THIS SPACIOUS CANTINA IS THE IDEAL PLACE FOR A SERIOUS WINE CELLAR and it is big enough for entertaining friends – the perfect room in which to stay cool during the summer months and without the necessity of airconditioning!
On the first floor there is a sitting room and kitchen with original fireplace – large, original rooms which wouldn’t go amiss as settings for historic film shoots! There is also a bathroom on this floor.
On the second floor there are two large rooms used as bedrooms one of which is a walk through to reach the top floor. The room however is so large that it would be very possible to create a corridor to take one up to the third floor using this room either as a study or a small second bedroom in its own right.
On the top floor there are two gorgeous bedrooms with windows opening on to a spectacular view of the Valdichiana. The big windows also provide an enormous amount of light. A further bathroom, accessed by both bedrooms, is also to be found on this floor.
This timeless home is absolutely beautiful: welcoming, full of light and authentic. Purchasing this property would literally be buying a piece of history.
Ideal for a family who love to frequent Cortona throughout the year, but the property would also lend itself as a B&B or divided into two separate apartments as an AirB&B investment.
