Who wouldn’t want the key to this particular front door? This classic, elegant and beautifully restored Tuscan villa, set in private grounds and built in the 1800’s circa, was restored about 12 years ago and divided into 10 luxury private units, each with their own allotted garden and the use of a shared swimming pool.
The villa is located just a few hundred metres from the lively and quaint village of Pergo which has, among other things, an excellent delicatessen/supermarket, a pizzeria, a Relais hotel-restaurant and the popular Andry’s bar which – with a great outside space for morning cappuccini and evening aperitivi – is frequented by an eclectic mix of both local Italians and ex-Pats.
This particular apartment (125 sqm) is a fusion of two units and is accessed via a beautiful Liberty style staircase in stone and cast iron, and is probably the most characteristic of all the homes, in that it is lent added charm by being under the eaves with lovely views from the windows.
The apartment consists of 3 bedrooms (one currently used as a gym), with a spacious master bedroom with walk in wardrobe, 2 bathrooms (one with an enormous walk in shower and the other with tub), an open plan kitchen dining area and a second dining/living room. It has been restored with materials of exceptional quality including antique 'cotto' floor tiles, original chestnut beams and with all windows and doors in double-glazed chestnut wood.
The apartment, to be sold fully furnished with the exception of the floor rugs, is pre-disposed for air conditioning, has two pellet stoves as well as gas central heating, 2 garage spaces with battery re-chargers installed for electric cars, 4 external parking allocations, and 2 garden areas one of which has permission for the installation of photovoltaic panels for electricity.
The hilltop town of Cortona is an eight minute drive away, as is Camucia the new town below Cortona where there is also a mainline train station Florence-Milan-Rome.
Nearest airports are Perugia 50 mins, Florence 90 mins, Rome 120 mins.
