WITH THE MOST AMAZING PANORAMA this plot of land, with permission to build, is situated in a nature reserve in the mountains above Cortona, just 15 minutes from the town centre.
At c.850 mts above sea level, its dominant views are unbeatable, with a vast panorama which stretches from Lake Trasimeno to the South, across the Valdichiana towards Montepuliciano and Monte Amiata and to Cortona and Arezzo in the West.
The plot of land is just under 1 acre (c. 1330 sqm) with an approved project for three buildings of 65 sqm, 45 sqm and 45 sqm respectively. Building costs can be estimated at E.3500 per sqm inclusive of all technical costs and VAT. Categorized as Zone E, a pool would be permissible.
The property is accessed via a main road out of Cortona. At the Passo della Cerventosa – one takes an excellently maintained, wide and easily navigated, white gravelled road (2.7km) – maintained by the local council – up Monte Ginezzo. The drive in itself, is stunning.
There is no lack, as one might imagine, for surrounding walks. It is one of the most, if not THE most, scenic areas of Cortona, with the addition of uninterrupted sunsets which are a sight to behold.
At a distance of c. 4 kms from the house there is Portole bar/restaurant/grocery store. Cortona is at a distance of c.12 kms.
In summary: If you’re up for a building job and location is of principle importance to you, then this plot is definitely worth viewing.
Its only downside is a neighbouring ruin, owned by the region. This is likely to collapse into rubble - sooner rather than later - and disappear from sight, but it might be worth checking out regional policies, regarding the possibility of it ever being put up for sale. It’s an unlikely scenario, and even more unlikely that anyone would consider buying it, given its proximity to this property, but better safe than sorry.
