Restored Mill near Cortona for Sale
Restored Mill near Cortona. Near Cortona, this charming house was once a watermill driven by water from the Esse stream which runs along the front of the property. This beautiful area is ideal for walking with wonderful countryside accessible directly from the house. With one foot in Tuscany, one in Umbria and with quick train access to Rome and Florence, one can easily reach all that is best in Italy’s rich culture.
In a hill side location, the property comprises a restored 3 bedroom former mill with 2 outside stores, set in 2 hectares of oak woodland.
This unspoilt area is protected from further development and is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including porcupines, squirrels, foxes, and a wonderful range of birds such as Golden Orioles, Hoopoes, blackbirds, finches and swallows.
Originally consisting of only 2 rooms the present owners extended and modified the house to its present form. It now comprises:
3 bedrooms (one of which is mezzanine), living room with access to a terrace and garden, kitchen/dining room, 2 bathrooms (one with bath, the other a shower room) which have recently been upgraded, and a laundry room.
The house will benefit from some upgrading. The lower level kitchen, being built into the hillside, has some damp penetration. This can be dealt with in various ways in consultation with a competent builder. The roof over the bedrooms is original and, although watertight, would benefit from insulation.
There are 2 outside stores.
2 hectares of oak woodland
Parking space is shaded by a wisteria covered pergola.
Gas central heating, wood burner in the living room, LPG tank buried in the rear garden, Water provided from a well in the front garden, electricity, telephone.
