A unique property permeated by Tuscan tradition and with private gardens and common areas expertly managed and maintained throughout the year to a high standard. There is ample parking shared by the owners and a large, sunny swimming pool and barbecue/service area with lovely views of Cortona.
The apartment for sale is in the oldest part of the original 'Casa Colonica' and is one of the largest in the complex. It is comprised of:
On the ground floor: A living room with fireplace and dining area with an arch which leads through to the kitchen. There is also a service bathroom.
On the first floor there are two bathrooms and three double bedrooms each with its own loft space. These spaces provide additional living or sleeping accommodation and could easily be converted to further bedrooms /bathrooms for those wanting more accommodation.
Double doors from both the living room and from the kitchen lead out into a lovely private garden overlooking Cortona. Perfect for relaxing and dining al fresco.
The house is immediately available as a family holiday home, but would also lend itself to a summer rentals activity, providing an income to help with the annual maintenance.
The house is set just a few kilometres from the hilltop town of Cortona, a jewel of Tuscany and known throughout the world. Cortona has excellent connections by road and rail to Rome (less than 2 hours), Florence (a little more than an hour), Siena/Perugia (about 40 minutes) and many charming hill towns (Pienza, Montepulicano, Castiglione del Lago etc..) which are nearer still. The proposed new Golf Complex at Manzano is just over a kilometre away.
Allow us to show you around, without obligation, so that you can see for yourself. You will be enchanted by the rural location, the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the magical views across the Valdichiana and up to Cortona. The area is also perfectly located for walking, cycling and trekking enthusiasts.
As it is for gastronomic enthusiasts too - Cortona has a wealth of restaurants, all of which without exception are very good. Every evening you can enjoy a different restaurant some of which are very high quality and with a long tradition and experience of serving local dishes.
About Cortona Real Estate
Cortona Real Estate (aka Agenzia Immobiliare Cortonese) was set up in 1997 dedicated to the local Italian market. In recent years, our solid reputation for sincerity and transparency, has led many foreigners to our doors. In order to serve them well, we joined forces with HelpWorksItalia (HelpWorksItalia.com) so as to promote the agency globally and provide assistance in fluent English.
We have a large selection of properties in the area from town houses and apartments to country properties in beautiful settings (villas, farmhouses, residential complexes). We have restored properties, properties in need of upgrades and abandoned properties in need of complete restoration.
For those with more modest budgets, we also have a choice of practical and comfortable homes - new builds, apartments in condominiums, portions of old houses - which can be viewed on our Italian website: immobiliare-cortonese.com.
If you can't find what you are looking for, or if you are looking further afield (Castiglion del Lago, Montepulciano, Lucignano, Sansepolcro) we would be more than happy to do you a personalised search. We have an excellent working relationship with a number of other agencies. Just email us your requirements and we'll start asking around.
Cortona Real Estate's base motto is clarity and honesty in all things. We take great pride in the generous comments, made by past clients, attesting to our competence and sense of responsibility. You can see all our feedback on the agency website (Cortonarealestate.it)
In fact, unlike many agencies, Cortona Real Estate works together with its vendors to try and ensure properties conform to all regulations BEFORE they are advertised. Checks are carried out by a registered surveyor who cross references the actual state of the property (as seen and measured) with all documents deposited at the Land and Building registry and those deposited in the local town hall. This tends to avoid nasty surprises at a later date.
Cortona Real Estate also collates all relevant documentation for calculating eventual purchasing taxes and fees, annual council taxes and even annual overheads for the individual properties. We like to be certain, that as a buyer, you have all necessary information to hand before making a final commitment.
We believe our strength lies in our meticulousness to detail. We leave nothing to chance.
Cortona Real Estate knows that buying or selling a property in a foreign country can be daunting. For this reason, we look after our clients through each step of the purchasing (and selling) process.
As part of the comprehensive assistance we provide all purchasers, we also transfer utilities, opens bank accounts, sort out payment of annual taxes and can organise direct debits and/or payment through a client dedicated bank account. We can also be of help with regard to long term property management, small and large maintenance jobs, building works and complete renovations.
Basically, we are always available. If we can help, we are happy to do so. We will never just abandon you!
The agency is registered at the Chamber of Commerce in Arezzo and has been a member of FIAIP (Federation of Professional Italian Estate Agents) since 1997.
