Tuscan luxury property located near to Cortona comprising a fully restored 16th-century farmhouse in a panoramic position with swimming pool, gardens and small olive grove.
Cortona Tuscany Luxury Farmhouse Property
Lovely quiet countryside property which has had a superb renovation, taking 2 and a half years, with high-end fittings and luxury finishes. Unusually for a rural Tuscan property, there are large windows which give a bright and airy feel throughout the home.
The farmhouse (210 sqm – 2,260 sqft) is laid out over two floors:
– Ground floor: entrance room with dining area, living room, kitchen, pantry and bathroom. On the right side of the farmhouse is a nice sitting room with a feature ancient oven. On the opposite side, an independent bedroom with en-suite bathroom is reserved for guests.
– First floor: landing with library leading to two double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
The house has a beautiful 3,450 sqm (0.8 acres) garden, carefully maintained and dotted with flowers, trees and olive trees. Landscape gardener Enzo Margheriti from Chiusi was tasked with the landscaping of the garden and he took great care of the siting of the trees and the installation of an automated irrigation system.
Three pergolas are located throughout the garden and allow enjoying the pleasant Tuscan climate sheltered from the sun or simply having nice al fresco dinners in the quiet summer nights.
The 80 olive trees of the property give a small production of oil, enough for personal use.
The salt-water pool (8 x 4 m) is located not far from the farmhouse and is surrounded by a convenient solarium with tables, sun beds, chairs and a nice pergola where one can benefit from shade.
A fine countryside property in a quiet but not isolated position which would make a superb home or alternatively would make a superb holiday let.
