This is one of the five detached Tuscan-stone, cherrywood-beamed family houses that are scattered around the estate.
It consists of a large living room, a kitchen-dining room, 3 substantial bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 loft-closets – a total floor-space of 110 sqm.
The private enclosed garden has breathtaking views across to Cortona and the mountains behind it and its approximately 1,100 square metres is studded with fig, olive, pear and pomegranate trees.
The house has full central heating and hot water, as well as a terrestrial and satellite television system.
On the extensive estate lies a beautiful shared 20×8 metre swimming pool, fully equipped and serviced. A beautiful stone barbecue is tucked into one corner of the estate, overlooking the sunflower fields and the estate’s trees and tracks which are suited for walks and jogging.
The external and interior restoration of the buildings was carried out lovingly totally in accord with the local Tuscan building tradition and using traditional materials. Great attention was paid to the preservation of original features, using only recycled materials and traditional construction techniques.
