In one of Cortona’s oldest and most characteristic streets, beautifully restored first floor apartment (85 mtq) in one of the quaintest terraced houses imaginable with an absolutely breath taking view and small garden for dining ‘al fresco’ from which one can enjoy fabulous daily sunsets.
The property is super-protected as a building of historical interest and has been restored under the strictest of regulations and overseen by Le Belle Arte, Italy’s equivalent of the National Historic Register/National Trust.
The apartment consists of a sitting room with stone fireplace and kitchenette, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a balcony leading down to the garden.
The attention to detail is visible in the attractive high quality finishes: some of the original cotto floor tiles polished to a shine, stair railings in hand crafted cast iron, beautiful hand painted old doors, modern designed bathrooms with top quality materials etc… In addition, new techniques combined with traditional methods, were used for the insulation of the property which will ensure it retains its winter warmth, but perhaps more importantly, will remain cool in the summer.
The small garden (to use, not full property), offset by the town’s original fortified Etruscan wall, is a real bonus for an apartment in the city centre and although not a part of the actual sale – belonging as it does to the city itself – by tacit agreement, it can be enjoyed and used indefinitely.
Additional costs: installation of kitchen and appliances. The apartment is predisposed for air conditioning.
