Perfect Tuscan hideaway within walking distance of the village of Pergo, Cortona. Swimming pool, olive grove and garden.
Casa Lavanda is a great opportunity for a slice of Tuscan life, within walking distance of the lively village of Pergo, and less than 10 minutes to the beautiful hilltop town of Cortona. Newly built to a high specification about 10 years ago, the house sits on a pretty plot of some 2000sqm (roughly half an acre), complete with olive groves and swimming pool. The house is the last on a short road that runs past other properties, and there are no further possibilities for properties to be built nearby. The property is south facing, with elevated views over the valley and fields below, and the Piazzano hillside beyond.
The house is set on three floors; basement, ground and first. The main entrance is into the living area on the ground floor, which then flows through an arch into the fully equipped kitchen. On the other side of this floor is a bedroom with adjacent bathroom. Internal stairs lead to the main suite on the top floor, and another staircase leads to the ample basement floor. This floor, which is listed as a 'multi-use' space, is the same size as the main floor above, and is split into central living room with dining room to one side and a bedroom with en suite bathroom on the other. A large double door leads to the sheltered outside space, giving the floor plenty of light. Above the house is the pool, with stone solarium and surrounded by olive terraces and gardens.
Within walking distance of the house are two bars, two pizzerias and a local supermarket. A must see.
