Extremely pretty farm house, traditionally built, in a dominant position with extensive views out over the plains of the Valdichiana which include breath taking sunsets.
The property is 10/15 minutes from the famous town of Cortona, has shops and restaurants within a 5 minute drive and is within easy access of all major motorways and train stations.
In fact this charming property ticks most boxes.
Built in stone, it has a lovely cottage-like feel to it with many small details which indicate how much it has been loved and enjoyed over the years.
The house is on a hillside and is west facing as opposed to the classical south facing. Very possibly this was a deliberate choice - especially since the house enjoys sunshine throughout the day - to gain the most from the wonderful sunsets it must witness.
The house is built on two floors divided as follows: on the ground floor there is a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a breakfast room and a living room with a fireplace.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The outside area has been very attractively designed: there is a small, covered porch in front of the house for sitting in the shade and just beyond, a stone patio directly overlooking the view (and the sunsets!).
There is approx 1500 mtq of garden with a forecourt for parking and over 30 olive trees. There is also an above ground swimming pool with a well done deck with pergola nestled unobtrusively in to the hillside which is perfect for cooling off in the hotter months.
The house has its own well and a small garage with bread/pizza oven for storing gardening equipment. The access road (700 metres long) is well maintained and easily driven. As already mentioned, shops, banks and restaurants are nearby, making this a very interesting proposition for both permanent residents and seekers of an ideal holiday home.
