Large estate in a dominant position close to Cortona.
The Sodello estate spans nearly 30 hectares of a wonderful hilltop location close to Cortona, enjoying vast views over the Chiana valley as far as the eye can see.
The main house consists of three double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper floor, and living room, dining room and large country kitchen on the ground floor, as well as another room, with fireplace, variously used as a study or fourth bedroom.
A swathe of green lawn slopes gently down from the porch at the front of the house, towards the trees and the view over the valley below. A natural feeling swimming pool sits in a scallop shaped dell, cut naturally over the years by a stream that has been diverted.
Further to the old stone building, there are two adjoined wooden structures in the upper part of the gardens, shaded by large trees. The owners use these as further accommodation for themselves or their guests. Adjacent to these is a smaller, above ground pool for personal use. The property is accessed by a long, but well maintained road, that winds up from the Tecognano valley.
Both the village of Pergo and hilltop town of Cortona are roughly 10 minutes drive. The last kilometre of road is within the confines of the property, and ends at the house, so the estate offers exceptional privacy for those seeking this rare commodity.
