This three storey town house (200 mtq) located in a beautiful and peaceful 14th century setting in one of Cortona’s oldest quarterswhich resonates a distant past as if it were still tangibly present, most definitely ticks all boxes:
It faces South and South West and has panoramic views from the upper floors over roof tops, bell towers and the vast expanse of the Valdichiana plains.
It enjoys an abundance of natural light and has as its core feature a stunning central staircase, built in oak wood and steel, topped by a large skylight which allows sunlight to pour through from the top to the bottom of the house.
It has a beautiful and spacious garden (135 mtq) for dining al fresco with mature plants and shrubs and a shaded patio for enjoying aperativi often accompanied by birds singing in the leafy square beyond.
Its interior while retaining many of the traditional features has been designed to make the best use of both light and space, utilizing a modern philosophy while respecting that of the classical. The ingenuity applied to making all space useful is flawless and its execution and functionality superb.
Standing on one of Cortona’s oldest residential piazzas which is encircled by tall secular trees, Medieval church towers and a quality that can only be described as timelessness, this outstanding property which underwent a state of the art renovation, masterly combines the modern with the traditional to achieve perfect aesthetic harmony.
Designed by a renowned San Francisco architect and his textile designer wife, many of the fine finishes and fabrics are of their own personal make. The effect is stunning. Add to this the beautifully landscaped garden and patio – a priceless commodity for historical town centres - and you have a property that dreams are made of!!
The ground floor consists of a main entrance via a small forecourt, entrance hallway, living/dining area and spacious kitchen with direct access to the garden.
The modern kitchen is a chef’s delight and well laid out. There is generous counter space with Travetine stone and vertical pull out pantry closets and pull out drawers.
The first floor consists of a bedroom with air conditioning, a spacious bathroom with large shower box and a further room used as a study but which could be used as a third bedroom.
The top floor has the same lay out, a spacious bedroom with air conditioning, a bathroom and a studio/work shop in which there is an antique cupboard from the Netherlands and a wall of storage units. Again, this room could be used as a bedroom. Both bedroom suites have frosted glass doors in aluminum frames that disperse the light from the windows.
