Setting: It is in a truly lovely location with enchanting and far reaching views out over gentle hillsides and the valleys below. It is private and quite rural in its position, but there are other houses and hamlets prior to the house which provide a sense of community. The house stands in 1.5 hectares of garden and woodland and is accessed by a 3 km long gravel road well maintained.
In one direction, it is just a 12 minute drive to the well supplied town of Trestina.
In the other direction, it is a 15 minute drive to the small village of San Leo which has all basics.
The house consists of a large main building sympathetically restored with two separate living areas and a charming annex.
It has a mature garden lovingly planted with shrubs and plants, various terraces on which to enjoy the different phases of the sun, terraced olive trees and a swimming pool positioned to enjoy the best of the views.
The main house: The owners who live permanently in the property and have done so for many years maintained the division of the house, built on two floors, in order to stay cosy and comfortable during the winter months.
This first floor area consists of: two spacious and light bedrooms, two good sized bathrooms, a welcoming sitting room with lofty ceilings and a delight of a kitchen.
The ground floor which is used for summer guests consists of a functional and good sized kitchen which leads out under a covered porch, an enormous double living area (in which a double sofa bed has been placed at the far end) and a bathroom.
The cottage: This is a pretty and nicely decorated annex which consists of two bedrooms and one bathroom, an open plan sitting room/dining area and a kitchen. It is situated about 100 metres from the main house surrounded by the pretty garden where there is also a pizza/bread oven.
The whole property is immediately habitable. It has been traditionally restored with exposed chestnut beams, floors largely in 'cotto' and wood, kitchens designed for cooks and pleasing bathrooms nicely tiled.
All in all, a really charming property with an overall feeling of light and a welcoming aura of serenity. Other than putting in a connecting staircase between the two apartments (should one want to and which would be a very simple job to do) there is absolutely nothing one need change!
Utilities include central heating, wood stoves, wifi, private well and spring water
Nearest major towns are Citta' di Castello and Umbertide about 20 mins away, Perugia 50 mins, Cortona 60 mins. Nearest airports Perugia 50 mins, Florence 2hrs.
About Cortona International
In a unique collaboration, Cortona International, offers its clients a team of English speaking professionals whose individual strengths provide specialist knowledge in all aspects of buying or selling a property. We also offer a post-purchase property and rental management service for international buyers who may be absent for part of the year.
We do our UTMOST to do pre-marketing checks on our properties in order to ascertain their compliance status.
This does not necessarily mean they are compliant (many owners are resistant to regularising their properties until they have a firm offer), but it does mean we have a complete picture for you, know what the owner must do in order to obtain compliance and the timelines in which this can be done.
A survey of your own should confirm our findings.
We work together with the registered Italian notary regarding the preparation and drawing up of all and any contracts.
English translations and/or an interpreter are provided.
All money deposits are held in escrow by the notary until completion.
We collaborate with international and local agencies in the area and can organise and accompany you on viewings of properties also listed by them. This is done on a split commission basis and at no extra cost to you.
We will supply you with all paperwork pertaining to a property when you view it.
We will also calculate all costs relative to the purchase (notary fees, purchase taxes etc...), future council taxes and overheads and, in advance of any commitment to a purchase, complete estimates for any works which might need to be undertaken.
We offer, together with our professional associates, a full range of post-acquisition services: General caretaking & maintenance; organisation of projects, permissions & renovations/small building works and a rental management service for people wishing to rent out their properties.
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.
