Set amongst some of the most beautiful vineyard and farm land to be found in Cortona, this beautifully maintained, luxury residential estate, provides the perfect opportunity to own a private piece of Italy with none of the hassles associated with owning property abroad.
Set in its own private and enclosed garden (circa 900 mtsq), light and spacious cottage on one level (circa 110 sqm) consisting of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large, sunny sitting room with traditional stone fireplace leading out to the garden and a modern, functional kitchen which leads out to a covered pergola.
The garden with mature trees and shrubs, is maintained year-round as part of the general condominium costs. The cottage is being sold with all furnishings included.
The views of the gently rolling countryside extend as far as the hilltop town of Cortona where fine wines and fine dining have now become idiosyncratic with the town itself. The estate, home to an eclectic mix of people from all over the world, functions on the sacrosanct basis of privacy while at the same time offering a wonderful opportunity to meet people with whom to share and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of Cortona, especially during the summer months when it is full of concerts, exhibitions, street shows and activities in which to partake; wine tastings, wine and dining functions etc….
Stunning views, lush and mature grounds in which to stroll, a large swimming pool with both patio and grass areas. There is a main farmhouse (an historically protected building) comprised of seven beautifully restored apartments on two or three floors with independent access and each with their own enclosed, private garden. Within the grounds there are five independent cottages, built on one floor, each with large, enclosed gardens with trees and mature shrubs. There are two entrance gates to the estate, private parking for each resident and all of the homes have Wifi, air conditioning and mosquito screens.
The main building was restored using recuperated old materials about 22 years ago. The cottages were built new, with recuperated old materials, at the same time. It is a testament to the attention given by the developer to all detail that the estate has acquired character and is more beautiful now than in its first few years.
All of the habitations have been built and/or restored with the finest of hand-crafted materials creating of each home a typically Tuscan environment with hand-made ‘cotto’ floor tiles, exposed chestnut beams in the ceilings, characteristic doors, arched openings and stone fireplaces combined with modern bathrooms and functional, up to date kitchens.
If you are looking to live the dream of a lifetime then this wonderfully managed, up-market estate offers a trouble-free solution.
