Free standing properties with no immediate neighbours are few and far between these days, but this beautiful stone farmhouse (circa 220 sqm), standing in one hectare of land (approx. 2.5 acres) nestled on a hillside near to Mercatale di Cortona is an idyllic location for bringing family or friends together for long and lazy holidays in blissful privacy.
At E.300,000 the property has great potential and is a good buy: the first floor is immediately habitable (in a very basic manner; clean, tidy and well maintained, but restored over 30 years ago) with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and living room. The ground floor and ex-tobacco drying tower are to renovate and could be done equally simply, providing further bedrooms and bathrooms. A pool would be permissible and there is a beautiful traditional pizza oven, ideal for cooking up roasts (or pizzas!) for large numbers.
The access road is long and gravelled, but in excellent condition. Electricity is attached, water is supplied from a spring for which there is an established right of use, with a wood stove and LPG gas used for heating.
The quaint town of Mercatale is at 8 mins, the village of Lisciano Niccone at 10 kms, Umbertide at 25 kms, Lake Trasimeno 25 kms, Cortona 32 kms.
Perugia airport is just 1 hour away, Florence 2 hours, Rome 2 hours.
If you’re aiming to buy a small holding in Tuscany, this could be considered the perfect property, at the perfect price; something immediately habitable and to enjoy which can slowly be improved over the years.
Definitely worth viewing!
