Property description

Charme cottage is the prettiest of farmhouses (120+30sqm) in a setting of rural wilderness with an excellent access road, the security of a neighbouring property and all within easy reach of Tuscany and Umbria's most loved towns. What more could a person want?

A 10 minute drive to the nearest village of Mercatale di Cortona, it is not necessarily the right property for those who enjoy the 'bright lights', but it is a wonderful opportunity for anyone seeking a back-to-nature life style not too far from the madding crowds; these days an increasingly popular option!

Charme Cottage, to be sold fully furnished, is a beautiful and tastefully designed new-build, with immense character and (hence the name) enormous charm! It has been constructed with a combination of old and new materials, all of them traditional with great thought given to the finishes which give the property great allure and character. It stands in circa 2 acres (8000 sqm) of land in which a pool would be permissible and is laid out as follows:

Ground floor: Entrance/living room with beautiful fireplace, kitchen and dining room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a store room.
First floor: a study/library and a second room - under the eaves - used as a bedroom.
(*The property has been predisposed for central heating and requires only the installation of a boiler and the purchase and mounting of radiators).

Mercatale is a thriving village with all amenities - banks, supermarkets, a pharmacy etc.. - it enjoys an eclectic mix of residents - from hard core farmers, to enterprising artisans and professionals to a growing number of international home owners looking for a more wholesome lifestyle.
The Umbrian and Medieval town of Umbertide is a 20 minute drive, Cortona is 25 minutes away and the hilltop town of Tuoro - which overlooks Lake Trasimeno - just 16 minutes.

Within an hour's radius one can visit a wealth of towns both in Umbria and Tuscany: Passignano, a lake side town with wonderful fish restaurants, is just 25 minutes away, Perugia 45 mins, Gubbio 50 mins, Montepulciano 50 mins, Assisi 60 mins. Florence is just 1hr 45 minutes minutes away, Rome 2hrs 30 mins.
Nearest main line train station is in Camucia, the town below Cortona, 25 minutes away.
Nearest airports: Perugia 45 mins, Florence 1hr 45 mins, Rome 2hrs 30 mins.

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.

SURVEYS
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.

CONVEYANCING
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.

VIEWINGS
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.

DOCUMENTATION
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.

POST-PURCHASE SERVICES
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.
