CASA CANTALENA - Small farmhouse in the mountains above Cortona, with garden and pool for sale, Tuscany
|Nearest town with services:||Cortona, 14 Kms|
|City or Zone:||Cortona|
A gem of a house, beautifully done and with absolutely stunning views, 3500 sqmts of garden with fruit trees and olives, fish pond, football pitch (!) and even a private swimming pool….all for the price of E.220,000. Obviously there is a catch!
The property is 14 kms from Cortona town, 7 kms of which is a white gravel road perfectly maintained by the local council. That's the catch.
It is situated on the edge of a small village (although there are no shops) which is very well maintained. Most of the owners use in this upper half of the hamlet only during the summer months. In the lower part of the hamlet/village there are a number of Italian families who live there the year round.
It will seem like the back of beyond on your first visit but it is in fact just a 20 minute drive to the centre of Cortona with an excellent restaurant - Castel Girardi - just a 10 minute drive away. Also in the summer there is a nearby agriturismo/restaurant which one can walk to.
The house is small, but equisitely done.
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a small kitchen and a small living area.
A 80 sqmt extension would definitely be allowed.
The place is enchanting, the view absolutely stunning and at E.220,000 very good value for money.
The only condition is that you are happy to be in a somewhat remote environment, although this is more of a psychological factor given that 14 kms is not very far and there is a community of people nearby.
