In 2005 Cetona was awarded the "Orange Flag", as one of the hundred most beautiful towns in Italy and is located on the slopes of Mount Cetona (1184m above sea level). Cetona is a fascinating medieval town, with its fortress, old houses and farmhouses with cypress and pine trees, olive trees and vineyards, overlooking the green Val di Chiana valley. Towards the East is the medieval town of Città della Pieve, the birthplace of the Renaissance painter Pietro Vannucci, better known as "Perugino".
The majority of the "Colle del Picchio" property is located in the municipality of Cetona with a small part also located in the municipality of Città della Pieve. This property is situated in a beautiful hilly panoramic setting over the Val di Chiana on a hill 350 metres above sea level with views of the green surrounding countryside with its characteristic gentle slopes, evergreen woods and vineyards. This is a beautiful natural area dominated by the Castello di Fighine.
Places of interest are: Cetona (10 minutes), San Casciano dei Bagni and its prestigious "Fonteverde" spa (10 minutes), Chiusi and its train station as well as the A1 motorway (15 minutes), Montepulciano (30 minutes), Pienza (40 minutes), Cortona (40 minutes) and the natural landscape of the Trasimeno area (30 minutes). About an hours drive away are the cities of Rome, Florence and Siena.

The "Colle del Picchio" is a beautiful property situated in the countryside which requires restoration and includes an old building dating from the second half of the 1800's. The property is located on two levels, with a total area of 400sqm. This is in addition to an agricultural outbuilding of 30sqm overlooking the main property as well as an annex of about 10 sqm.
There is also agricultural land of about 1 ha, included to the sale price, that would be divided after the technical measurement. This plot can be used for the creation of the gate, parking places, garden/park and the area for a swimming pool.
There is an option to buy addditional 12.2 ha which are for the most part sowable but currently uncultivated, with some olive plants (100 trees). This option will be negotiated separately and can be used by the future owner for the development of agricultural activity.

State of repair:
Externally, the main property has brick, stone and plaster facades. Internally, the ground floor has no ceilings in parts (former stable) while in other areas there are vaulted ceilings. On the first floor there are numerous rooms that require renovation but there are the original terracotta floors as well as wooden and tiled ceilings on the first floor. The entire building requires a complete renovation both internally and externally, and with an improvement and preservation of this period rural structure, a beautiful country home could be created ideal for private use or as a tourist accommodation business.

Essential amenities are only about 1.5km away from the property and it already has electricity and mains water.

Land registry details:
For this prestigious farmhouse in Tuscany, as for all our properties for sale, a detailed urban, land planning and zoning report will be made available that for privacy reasons, will be provided at time of interest. This allows our national and international buyers to have an in-depth technical report of the property.

Potential Land Use:
The "Colle del Picchio" property would be ideal as a beautiful private country residence with the potential of its inclusion in the international tourist holiday rental market thanks to its land, agricultural outbuildings and small agricultural business.
