Full description:

Italian farmhouse for sale close to Cortona and overlooking the Niccone valley.

Canalecchia is a charming south facing Italian farmhouse immersed in the Italian countryside, close to Cortona and located on a hill at an altitude of 500m overlooking the Niccone valley in Tuscany. A magnificent and well kept garden surrounds the 280sqm house which is beautifully restored and is part of the National Art historical record dating from 17th century. The property is divided into three apartments all completely independent of each other. 

On the ground floor the first apartment of 70sqm has two bedrooms, two bathrooms a kitchen, lounge and vine covered veranda.  The second apartment of 60sqm has a large kitchen, one bedroom, a bathroom, technical room and a lovely patio. Typical of Umbrian farmhouse architecture, access to the main house is via a beautiful stone staircase laced with wisteria vines that leads to the entrance patio. This portico covered patio opens into a large lounge and onto the kitchen area where a small terrace bridge leads to the back garden. On the left hand side there is a sitting room with a large old stone fireplace and opposite two bedrooms and two bathrooms. From the second bedroom you have access to the small tower with the third room at the top, from this charming room one can enjoy a magnificent view. 

The entire property has 37 windows and door-windows, therefore the apartments and the house are naturally very well lit with a light and airy feel throughout the day. Many of the materials used for the restoration and the finishing formed part of the original structure, and the owners were able to re-create with good taste a very special atmosphere. A rosemary lined drive leads to the house and the surrounding grounds have mature trees and plantings with various areas to sit and take in the fantastic views. The property has a nice sized pool with terracotta tile border and stone paving surrounds provide ample room for sun bathing and poolside lunches. Below the house and next to the pool there is a 100sqm garage which can be easily converted in a guest house.
