ITALY, TUSCANY, AREZZO, CORTONA
Farmhouse of about 200 sq m with open layout on panoramic hill near Cortona with land.
The farmhouse is located in an extremely panoramic area on the hills of Cortona.
It is on 2 floors for about 200 sqm, and is composed as follows:
Ground floor: large open plan area with large panoramic windows overlooking the valley and a height of over 4 meters.
From this area there is access to the terrace, and rooms currently used as a bedroom and kitchen.
There are many French doors that allow the outdoor space to be experienced easily in the warmer months.
A stone staircase to the basement which is a room with brick arches, a recently renovated shower room and the first cellar.
There is external access to two more rooms used as cellar/laundry and woodshed/technical room.
A final cellar connected to the farmhouse leads to the outdoor shed.
On the land there are two outbuildings to be rebuilt that offer good cubic capacity to create a garage, small outbuilding or other volumes.
Condition and finishes
The property is in good condition, renovated in the 70s/80s. However, it needs work on finishes and systems, as it has no heating system (at the moment it has wood and pellet stoves).
The farmhouse offers many possibilities for renovation in the interior.
The exterior is currently plastered, but it can be renovated by bringing back the original exposed stone.
The roof was redone in the 1970s but can be improved and insulated.
The high ceilings have exposed wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The floors are tiled.
There is a working property well for the supply of water
The property has 2200 sqm of garden and an additional 15,600 sqm of land divided between olive grove, forest and chestnut grove. About 200 olive trees are present.
The farmhouse differs from the classic Tuscan style by having windows and interior spaces out of the ordinary, ideal for creating modern and bright environments.
The property is perfect for use as a first or second home being located in a quiet and panoramic area. Given the proximity to the town of Cortona it is also ideal as a tourist rental.
