In a dominant hillside position with incredible views out over the Val di Chiana and beyond, Villa Metelli is a beautiful house with annex and pool (8x 4 meters) that is both welcoming and charming.
Restored by the current Italian owner for his own use, every attention has been given to detail: his choice of hand made ‘cotto’ floor tiles in a warm peachy/red and the sandy colored exposed wooden beams create a light and inviting ambience.
His choice of internal design and decoration make for an elegant, yet homely environment.
The house is built on two floors and consists of a large entrance hallway, a sitting room with a stone fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.
On the first floor there is a large landing, two bedrooms and one bathroom. A second bathroom on this floor would be possible.
The annex, currently used for storage, could in part be converted into a fourth bedroom with a bathroom.
The house has 3 hectares of surrounding land with a mature garden and various terraces with olive trees.
The access road is acceptable, but not brilliant. Aware of this, the owner would undertake to re-do of the road as part of the sale price.
The house is located in Metelliano which because it is a protected area is completely unspoiled.
In the immediate vicinity there is the lively village of Pergo with all basic amenities, an excellent Relais restaurant, two wonderful delicatessens/mini-supermarkets, a bar with international newspapers, a pizzeria, a hardware store and other basic amenities. Both Cortona and Camucia are at a distance of approx. 4kms including a main line train station in Camucia.
This area in general is very popular and as with most good things, comes at a premium! Having said that, the asking price is reasonable compared to other properties of similar ilk.
