One of the first properties to be scooped up by international buyers over 40 years ago, this wonderful family home is very much a LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION property.  With an ENORMOUS  view across the Esse Valley and out over the Valdichiana, it is set on a hill-top plateau surrounded by olive groves, meadows and woodland.  It has a beautiful garden of circa 4000 sqm which overlooks the spectacular panorama and has a swimming pool surrounded by mature shrubs and beautiful secular olive trees.  There are a further 13 hectares of olive trees, meadowland and woodland.

The property (circa 350 sqm) is built on 2 floors with a large panoramic terrace (40 sqm) on the first floor where there are also 2 spacious bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a master bedroom en suite with air conditioning.

On the ground floor, where all rooms lead directly out into the garden, there are large, light spaces with a good sized kitchen and dining area, a room used as a fourth bedroom with adjacent services, a wonderful sun-lit limonaia used as a summer living room, another large living area with original fireplace and store rooms-garage space for a further 60sqm.

The property, south south-west facing enjoys spectacular sunsets and because of its hill-top setting, also all day sunshine

It is a 20 minute walk to the quaint village of Pergo (or 5 minutes by car!) which tends to be a hub of activity most mornings and evenings with an eclectic mix of local Italians and international home-owners; definitely a social meeting point if one is so inclined.

The property does require some modernisation, but the asking price – given that Pergo is one of Cortona’s prime property locations – does reflect this. 

Pergo has all basic services: a busy bar with outside seating, a pizzeria, a mini-supermarket/delicatessen a hardware store etc…  Within a radius of 2 kms there are three top restaurants.  Cortona is just over 10 minutes by car, as is Camucia where there is also a mainline train station – Rome-Florence-Milan.

Nearest airports are Perugia at 50 mins, Florence 1hr 20 mins, Rome 2hrs.
