IN A DOMINANT POSITION WITH BEAUTIFUL FAR-REACHING VIEWS across wooded hillsides and valleys below, a traditional Tuscan farmhouse of 210 sqmts with a barn of 150 sqmts and 1.8 hectares (18000 sqm) of surrounding land. A pool of 72 sqm would be permissible
The property is an easy 12-minute drive from Cortona with wonderful panoramas along the way. It is located in the mountains above the town, just 1.5 kms from Portole bar/hotel. During the summer months, heading off to Portole for an aperitivo, makes for a lovely walk. Very basic, but good traditional food is also on offer at weekends during the Summer.
The area is wonderful for hiking (and so it would seem, cycling) with Lake Trasimeno as a stunning back-drop. There are endless paths to take, some along old Roman roads, others across open countryside. It is a particularly beautiful area of Cortona and much of it is a national nature reserve.
The main house, surrounded by a lovely garden, is built in traditional stone. It has been divided into three apartments, two of which have been restored and one of which requires modernisation (where the owners currently live).
The two modernised apartments consist of:
On the ground floor there is a storage room which could possibly interconnect the house via an internal staircase, but this would need to be studied together with a professional.
The barn - 150 sqmts – is divided into 4 areas. There is the possibility of converting it into a guest annex, but one would have to be patient in acquiring the necessary permissions. It would take some time!
In summary, this is a very lovely old farmhouse in an absolutely beautiful location. Perfect for someone wishing to live here while running a rental activity.
