Charme cottage is the prettiest of farmhouses (120+30sqm) in a setting of rural wilderness with an excellent access road, the security of a neighbouring property and all within easy reach of Tuscany and Umbria’s most loved towns. What more could a person want?
A 10 minute drive to the nearest village of Mercatale di Cortona, it is not necessarily the right property for those who enjoy the ‘bright lights’, but it is a wonderful opportunity for anyone seeking a back-to-nature life style not too far from the madding crowds; these days an increasingly popular option!
Charme Cottage, to be sold fully furnished, is a beautiful and tastefully designed new-build, with immense character and (hence the name) enormous charm! It has been constructed with a combination of old and new materials, all of them traditional with great thought given to the finishes which give the property great allure and character. It stands in circa 2 acres (8000 sqm) of land in which a pool would be permissible and is laid out as follows:
Ground floor: Entrance/living room with beautiful fireplace, kitchen and dining room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a store room.
First floor: a study/library and a second room – under the eaves - used as a bedroom.(*The property has been predisposed for central heating and requires only the installation of a boiler and the purchase and mounting of radiators).
Mercatale is a thriving village with all amenities – banks, supermarkets, a pharmacy etc.. – it enjoys an eclectic mix of residents - from hard core farmers, to enterprising artisans and professionals to a growing number of international home owners looking for a more wholesome lifestyle.
