In excellent condition
Large restored farmhouse in a pretty hillside location less than 15 minutes from Cortona.
The property is divided into 4 apartments, with pool and 17 hectares of surrounding land.
It is accessed by a well maintained gravel road of approx. 600 metres. The property is completely private, but there are friendly and helpful neighbours nearby (one of whom looks after the road).
Between the 4 apartments there are a total of 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 5 kitchen/living areas. The house is surrounded by a combination of woodland and fields, with a landscaped garden around the house and swimming pool.
The owners currently live in one of the larger apartments and successfully rent out the other three.
So successfully, that many of the guests come back year after year. It is especially popular with young families because of all the wonderful things to keep the children occupied: the creek, the wonderful tree house, the goats and chickens and the enormous vegetable garden where guests can pick their own fresh vegetables.
The current owners have worked hard to build up the business and in fact offer various services - such as trips to wineries and nearby towns, organising detailed itineraries for guests who wish to go off and explore alone, inviting guests to weekly BBQ's and generally being at hand and on call for any eventuality.
There are a number of people living in the nearby vicinity - a mix of both Italians and foreigners - which means although private, the property is not isolated. At a distance of 2.5 kms there is a bar/restaurant/hotel which many of the guests walk (or run!) to. The surrounding area is full of wonderful walks and for the fit, cycling seems to be a popular option.
° All of the apartments have wooden double glazed windows and air-gap flooring.
° Traditional exposed chestnut beams and terracotta ceilings.
° Bright and luminous rooms with plenty of lighting.
° Individual gas meters connected to large underground gas bottle.
