The complex which is maintained throughout the year is run as a condominium with a total of 12 units. Seven of these units, each with their own private garden are in the magnificent main building restored with great care about 15 years ago and which dates back to the seventeenth century. There are five independent units, built on one level, which are situated in the grounds.
This particular unit, 123 sqmts of living space, is quite unique in that it is one of only two built on three floors. It has a spectacular master bedroom suite on the top floor with original beams and a vaulted ceiling, ensuite shower room and plenty of room for a sitting area as well.
On the first floor there are two luminous double bedrooms and one bathroom. On the ground floor there is a well fitted kitchen/dining area, a sitting room with fireplace, a bathroom/laundry room and externally a covered porch of 6.5 sqmts. The property has wifi, air conditioning and central heating. Much of the furniture is included in the sale price including the fitted kitchen
The property is south facing with a private garden area of 120 sqmts. There is a shared pool of 20 metres with a surrounding patio which can be enjoyed by all owners and their guests. The surrounding countryside which is ideal for long walks, cycling, painting and photography is the perfect environment for either a holiday or permanent home. The town of Camucia at a short distance of 6.5 kms has all services and the hilltop town of Cortona is at distance of 10 kms. There is a main line train station In Camucia (Rome-Florence-Milan) to facilitate day trips and access to major motorways is within a short drive of 10 minutes.
Buying into a residential complex makes life very simple: there are no maintenance issues to deal with, it's a simple and friendly way of getting to know people and an area without the risk of feeling isolated. In fact, a number of the original owners, having found their feet, have since moved on to buy more independent homes, but none would have done so without this first stepping stone.
From the moment you enter the grounds and park your car, the serene beauty of the countryside is in front of you. A short walk to our unit brings you to the outdoor pergola with a clear view of Cortona, the covered patio and lovely grassy area. Never crowded, never noisy, the sound of the church bells of Montecchio and birds singing take you away. Our bright and sunny home makes even a rainy day very comfortable with the extra brightness and casual atmosphere.
Having lovely international neighbors from England, US, Holland, Belgium, Israel and Canada makes it a very easy place to come to. The beautiful pool is never crowded in the summer season, the people are very friendly and the ease of staying one week, or one year is very enjoyable. You are never rushed to do anything
The location is excellent for your local shopping needs, and the closeness to the highways gives you opportunities to get anywhere easily. The train stops in Camucia if you plan a longer trip north or south.
The house has been maintained regularly, cleaned and upgraded and best of all, the whole family can have privacy in the 3 bedrooms and sleeping sofa on the ground floor. When you want some real privacy, the master bedroom on the top floor is the best view and best room in the house.
We hope you can enjoy it as much as we have!
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.
