Country house with panoramic infinity pool, 5 bedrooms and amazing views of Cortona
This beautifully restored country house is located on the Tuscan-Umbrian border with a beautiful view of the medieval town of Cortona with Etruscan roots. While the house itself and the beautiful gardens already stand out in terms of quality, it is the location that takes centre stage: The view over the rolling Umbrian and Tuscan hills all the way to Cortona is simply fantastic! The property has been lovingly restored, preserving the original features and materials typical of the landscape, such as handmade terracotta and travertine floors, exposed wooden beams, stone masonry and arches, but also modern technologies such as a ventilated roof that keeps the house cool even on hot summer days. The house is spread over two floors and has a large terrace at the front of the house. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with stone stairs to the upper floor, a guest bathroom, a large reception room with an impressive stone fireplace and double stone arches, a dining room and a cosy area, both with wood-burning stoves, a fully equipped kitchen with a floor of irregular travertine tiles and access to a comfortable covered terrace and an original pizza oven. On the upper floor, you enter a passage room with a sitting area and a wood-burning stove in a fireplace, from which the following rooms are accessible: A master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (bath and shower) and walk-in wardrobe, 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and 2 further bedrooms sharing a large bathroom with double sinks, bath and shower. An underground room under the terrace houses a fitness room with air conditioning and the technical room. The 12 x 6 meter luxury infinity pool with travertine sun terrace and wooden pool house with summer kitchen and bathroom is situated in a panoramic position above the house, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Cortona and the surrounding green countryside.
