Situated in Cortona’s exclusive Tecognano area, this is a gem of a house, located mid-hillside with far reaching views over the Val d’Esse and the Valdichiana. It is South facing and surrounded by olive groves and is also within hiking distance of Cortona, via Francis Mayes’ villa Bramasole.
The property was bought over 40 years ago and restored simply, with very few structural or aesthetic changes made to it. The house has remained as such to the present day and is full of charm and character and immersed in nature.
It is approx. 110 mtsq and would benefit from some modernisation, but is immediately habitable.
The house is built on two and a half levels with a very quaint and serene ‘cottagey’ feel to it:
On the first floor reached via an external staircase with covered loggia, there is a gorgeous, light and spacious living/dining area with a kitchen on the far side. On a higher level, 3 steps, there are two bedrooms one leading into the other.
On the ground floor, reached via an internal staircase, there are two rooms, bathroom, a toilet and a small kitchen (with wood oven) leading out onto a patio.
The property has garden plus, approx. 1 hectares of surrounding land with an abundance of olive trees (over 300) and fruit trees. It is accessed via a asphalted road and is approximately 5 kms from Cortona’s town centre. There is a small above ground pool.
With an unbeatable view, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a small farmhouse which has all of its original features untouched and intact, in a stunning setting.
