This absolutely gorgeous property in a dominant hillside position with its wonderfully proportioned and light rooms, panoramic swimming pool, breathtaking and far reaching views and sublime sunsets, has been designed, developed and nurtured to provide luxury and comfort in a welcoming and elegant environment.
Tioli is an estate fit for a lord which is perhaps apt given its owner's noble origins! Bought as a ruin over 14 years ago, it has been carefully restored and rebuilt using traditional and/or original and reclaimed materials with every attention given to detail.
The retaining of the barrel vaulted ceiling in the enormous sitting room which covers the length of the entire main house and the restoration of the vault above the stunning main staircase are just two of the features which give this property an uncommon "wow factor". The new stone window lintels, aged and hand crafted to match those of the original lintels which were salvageable, are just an indication of the fine craftsmanship which can be seen throughout the property.
Adopted as a main residence as opposed to a second home, the property has an air of lived-in serenity which again is unusual and makes for a welcome change. This is a property with 'panache'; it has been restored with something no amount of money can buy - style and good taste.
The casa padronale is built on 2 floors and has 3 spacious bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the first floor. The master suite is vast and boasts a dressing room/study, en-suite bathroom and panoramic balcony from which to enjoy the most spectacular of views including daily sunsets.
On the ground floor, there is a HUGE living room with antique fireplace and barrel vaulted ceiling, a stunning staircase which features a beautifully crafted ceiling vault and a chef's kitchen/breakfast room with wood-burning stove, twin electric ovens, gas hob and central island. There is also a downstairs cloakroom and a gas-fired boiler room providing underfloor heating downstairs with radiators upstairs.
The guest annex is comprised of 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a small, but perfectly functional kitchen and a large and light sitting/dining area which leads out under a covered pergola from where one can enjoy the amazing views. There is also a large work shop/storage room.
The pool house/artist's studio consists of 1 large and well-lit room with small, but practical kitchen and a bathroom.
The owners, who are somewhat reluctantly retiring back to the UK, have lived and loved the house since they moved in to it nearly fourteen years ago. They have enjoyed opera at Preggio and classical music concerts at Castel Rigone. Other events taking place in the area are the annual Trasimeno Blues festival, the internationally famous Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia and the annual Mix Festival held in the hilltop town of Cortona which is just half an hour away.
Their initial goal was to have a home which enjoyed complete privacy, but was not too far off the beaten track. Tioli is the perfect setting. It is accessed via a less than 2 km gentle gravel road which meanders through farm and woodland, exiting just by Castel Rigone's centuries old church. The village is less than half an hour's walk from the house.
The maintenance of the road is shared between 3 other property owners and costs are approx. ?1000 per annum. The property was restored to all EU and seismic norms and has the advantage of all new electric, plumbing and sewage systems as well as new and insulated roofs. There is a spring and a well of 100 metres depth which feeds the house, the pool and an irrigation system in place for the gardens. The well survived the 5 month 2017 drought so water must be ample. The house has Wifi, gas central heating, wood burners and ample woodland to fuel them!
Tioli is a remarkable property with charming features that one doesn't often see: this is no quick restoration job: It is a painstaking rebuilding of a piece of history with a touch of stylish flair. There is a wealth of similarly priced properties on the market, but Casa Tioli is worth every penny of its asking price!
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.
