In a sunny, hillside position above the small village of Montanare and situated in an historic hamlet dating back hundreds of years, a recently restored house attached on one side with 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room with fireplace and kitchen. The house, 130 mtsq and built on two floors has been traditionally restored with quality materials and has a light and airy feel to it.
In front of the kitchen there is a large panoramic patio (circa 50 sqmts) for dining ‘al fresco’ and to the side of the house a parking area. Further land detached from the house, with olive trees and vines and part of the purchase would make an ideal area for a swimming pool (a total of 10,000 mtsq).
Recently restored, the house has never been occupied and is ready to move into immediately; there is gas central heating, electricity and a private well. The hamlet consists of a number of other homes, some used throughout the year and others as summer residences.
Montanare at a distance of 2 kms is a small village with a grocery/bar, a garage, an excellent restaurant/hotel and a post office. The larger village of Pergo at 4 kms which has a mini-supermarket. pizzeria, hardware shop, Relais hotel/restaurant and a friendly bar with outside seating and international newspapers, is five minutes by car.
Pergo-Montanare is in fact one of the most sought after areas in Cortona and having lived both in Montanare and Pergo for many years, I can understand why. It’s a small community mixed in equal measures with Italian and foreign homeowners with all basic services, beautiful surroundings and within easy access of Cortona (5 mins) and Camucia (5 mins) where one can access all major motorways and a main line train station Rome-Florence-Milan.
This property offers good value for money and an opportunity to become part of a vibrant, friendly community.
