Charming, charming property!
Ticks all boxes: Very pretty farmhouse, south west facing with an endless view, fabulous sunsets, just under 2 acres of garden (5000 sqmt), a swimming pool, complete privacy and at a short distance – 1.8km - from the lively and well serviced village of Pergo.
The house is immensely appealling, full of character and restored sympathetically with many rustic and original features retained.
The house consists of a covered pergola in front of the house for dining al fresco, a large kitchen/dining room with windows on all sides, a comfortable sitting room with wood burning stove and at the far end of the house, an en suite bedroom.
On the first floor, accessed by an internal wooden staircase there is a landing with a small study area, a second sitting room with beautiful working stone fireplace which leads out onto a small terrace at the top of the original external staircase. On this floor is the second bedroom and a second bathroom.
Outside there is a pretty gazebo at the far end of the garden for enjoying peaceful moments. It is strategically placed for enjoying the views and surrounded by an abundance of shrubs and rose bushes, of all shapes, sizes and hues. The swimming pool (10x5 metres) is accessed via a little stone staircase and is fenced. Water is supplied by two wells, and there is air conditioning in both bedrooms, wifi and central heating.
Located in the area of Cortona which is technically Umbria and part of the Tuoro sul Trasimeno municipality, the area is however part of the prestigious Pergo zone, where property is at a premium due to the area’s unspoiled beauty and the protective regulations in force which allow for no new buildings to be constructed in the surrounding countryside.
In the immediate area there is the wonderful luxury hotel Villa di Piazzano which has a fantastic restaurant, Il Mollino restaurant in Montanare which is run by the owners of the exclusive Falconiere hotel on the other side of Cortona. Their own label local wine – Baracchi – now enjoys worldwide fame
In the village of Pergo under two kilometres away there is the prestigious Relais restaurant, spa, hotel - La Corte dei Papi - a delicatessen/supermarket with top quality cheeses, meats and wines, a friendly bar (with newspapers in various languages), a pizzeria where an eclectic mix of native artisans and international home owners can often be found sharing cappuccini or apperativi on the large terrace outside of Andry’s bar.
Cortona town is just a 10 minute drive away from the property as is Camucia (the town at the base of Cortona’s hillside) where one can easily catch a train to Florence, Milan or Rome with connections to all of Italy’s major towns and cities.
Nearest airports are Perugia 40 mins, Florence 90 mins, Rome 2hrs.
The property would be sold partially furnished with the exception of cherished personal possessions.
