In a dominant hillside position with incredible views out over the Valdichiana and beyond, a really pretty house with annex and pool (8x 4 metres) that is both welcoming and charming. Restored by the current Italian owner for his own use, every attention has been given to detail: his choice of hand made'cotto'floor tiles in a warm peachy/red and the sandy coloured exposed wooden beams create a light, but inviting ambience. His choice of internal design and decoration make for an elegant and homely environment. The house is built on two floors and consists of a large entrance hallway, a sitting room with stone fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom. On the first floor there is a large landing, two bedrooms and one bathroom. A second bathroom on this floor would be possible. The annex, currently used for storage, could in part be converted into a fourth bedroom with bathroom. The house has 3 hectares of surrounding land with a mature garden and various terraces with olive trees. The access road is okay, but not brilliant. Aware of this, the owner would undertake to re-do the road in tarmac or cement, as part of the sale price. Cost approx. E. 30,000.00. The house is located in Metelliano which because it is a protected area is completely unspoilt. In the immediate vicinity there is the lively village of Pergo with all basic amenities, an excellent Relais restaurant, two wonderful delicatessens/mini-supermarkets, a bar with international newspapers, a pizzeria, a hardware store and other basic amenties. Both Cortona and Camucia are at a distance of approx. 4kms. This area in general is very popular and as with most good things, comes at a premium! Having said that the asking price – compared to other properties of similar ilk, is reasonable. Definitely worth viewing.
