In a peaceful and completely unspoiled setting and just a short walk from a tiny mountain top village, a handsome property with wonderful views, 6 en suites, an infinity pool, two annexes in need of restoration and just over 2 acres of surrounding land.
Situated a REAL 30 minute drive from Cortona town and 25 minutes from the quaint and busy village of San Leo Bastia in Umbria, this property offers a genuine retreat from the busy world and an introduction to all that is simple, authentic and traditionally Italian.
The small village of Teverina with its bar/grocery shop and gas station is the hub of the village where the locals – which include a number of international home owners – can exchange pleasantries. It is approx.800 metres above sea level, and its charm is in its isolation from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but its vicinity to the ‘real’ world for day trips to many of Tuscany and Umbria’s historic towns which are all mostly within a radius of 90 minutes or less (Montepulciano, Pienza, Lucignano, Siena, Montisi, San Gimigniano, Assisi, Perugia, Arezzo etc…
The property has been recently restored and has large and well illuminated rooms. A well maintained garden offers complete privacy and there is a lovely pool (10 metres x 5 metres) with glorious surrounding views.
The house has 6 en suite bedrooms, a large kitchen with island, a dispenser and large open plan dining room with traditional fireplace and a living room all of which have double doors opening out on to a panoramic terrace with a wisteria covered pergola and an outdoor pizza oven and bbq. on the top floor there is an additional recreationa/living room.
The nearest shop, as mentioned above, is in the village of Teverina a short walk away.
At a distance of 10 minutes there is a bar/grocer’s and restaurant at Portole.
15 minutes away, at Castel Girardi there is an excellent pizzeria/restaurant.
15 minutes in the opposite direction – away from Cortona and towards Citta’ di Castello in Umbria - there is the village of San Leo Bastia which is quite well serviced with two mini-supermarkets, a butcher’s, two bars, a restaurant and a variety of other shops.
