    About this property

    • Stunningly restored four storey townhouse for sale in the historical centre of Cortona, Tuscany. An ancient shell with a thoroughly modern interior where every detail has been executed perfectly.

      On the ground floor is a one-bed apartment with bathroom and kitchen/living room; this is accessible both from the outside and also via an internal door, meaning that the apartment can be separate from the main block or incorporated as part of it. The main house is laid out between the first, second and third floors, comprising a further 3/4 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first floor is a beautiful, open-plan living room and kitchen, with antique stone fireplace and two large windows overlooking the street. The ultra-modern kitchen is set at the back of the living room, with a perspex-walled, centrally placed staircase leading to the floor above. On the floors above there are bedrooms and bathrooms, each equally well planned and furnished. 

      The property can be purchased key-in-hand, with all the furniture, allowing a potential purchaser to move in immediately. There is on street parking close to the house, which is not far from one of the main gates of Cortona. A great opportunity for someone to have a luxury pied-à-terre in this most sought after and thriving of Etruscan towns.

    Additional information

    • Cortona is the Tuscan hill town made famous by Francis Mayes in her book Under the Tuscan Sun. Surrounded by 3,000 year old Etruscan walls, much of this history of the town is maintained through the varied architecture. With beautiful views over the Val di Chiana and towards lake Trasimeno, Cortona is an attractive place to spend some time. Worth visiting are the Church of the Madonna del Calcinaio painted by Francesco di Giorgio Martini, (1485-1513), the Palazzo Comunale and Palazzo Casali which house the Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca, and the Museo Diocesano with works by Signorelli, Beato Angelico, Sassetta, Lorenzetti, etc.
