A jewel! In a rural mountain retreat above the world famous town of Cortona a gem of a property situated in a beautifully maintained hamlet and within walking distance of a miniscule village with bar/grocer's, petrol station and a seasonal restaurant/agriturismo with pool.
The house is freestanding with a beautiful view out over the mountains, a private fenced garden with two patio areas, a large pergola and a private parking area.
The house itself was restored seven years ago and consists of a light and practical newly fitted kitchen with an island work top, a dining area with fireplace and seating area, a sitting room and a bathroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a second bathroom.
The sitting room downstairs could be used as a third bedroom, especially during the summer months when the best part of the day is spent outdoors.
The village of Teverina is within a short walk and although there is little more than a bar, petrol station and restaurant (open during the late spring and summer), the local parish is famous in the area for hosting numerous festas which provide occasion for the eclectic local community – a mixture of foreigners and Italians – to come together and enjoy themselves.
The hilltop town of Cortona is 30 minutes away, at the end of a long and winding mountain road albeit with spectacular views out over Lake Trasimeno. Likewise, San Leo Bastia in the opposite direction to Cortona and in Umbria, is 15 minutes away.
This is a MOUNTAIN retreat 'far from the madding crowd', but it is a gorgeous little house in an enchanting setting. It is immersed in nature with wonderful surrounding walks to discover. The relaxed pace of rural mountain life is perfect to unwind from the rigours and stress of the world 'outside'.
At the same time it is within just a 90 minute radius of a host of famous Tuscan and Umbrian towns – Perugia, Assisi, Citta' di Castello, Umbertide, Sansepolcro, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza etc….
Nearest train station Rome-Florence-Milan is 40 minutes away in Camucia di Cortona.
Nearest airports are Perugia 50 mins, Florence 1hr 45 mins, Pisa 2hrs 15 mins, Rome 2 hrs 30 mins.
The house has all utilities attached and is in perfect condition with all new chestnut wood, double glazed windows and doors, mains water, septic tank and recently installed private gas (propane) tank.
