Tuscany. Elegant property at only five minutes drive from Cortona. The stone farmhouse sits in a beautiful hillside position with a fine view of Cortona’s fortress to the West and a southern view of the hills. The 16th century stone farmhouse of 251 sqm was thoughtfully renovated preserving its antique charm. Very particular are the carved stone archways, niches and the handsome masonry of the walls surrounding the villa.
Once a Ghibelline tower with 4 floors, the Casale now has three floors: the ground floor has a large kitchen, storage area, bathroom with shower, dining room/ living room with a stone fireplace and French doors opening onto the garden. The middle floor has 2 bedrooms, a large bathroom with tub/shower and has access to the side terrace. The upper floor has another 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with extra large shower.
The property comprises about 1,5 acres of land, including an upper garden with swimming pool and a lower terrace with a rose garden, cypresses, olive and fruit orchard. The entire property is enclosed by ancient stone walls.
