Casale Le Cannelle is a beautiful old farmhouse dating back to the 17th century, situated on the border between Tuscany and Umbria overlooking the Val Minima, at 30 minutes from the historic town of Cortona and 45 minutes from Perugia airport.
The house (approx. 300 m²) was completely restored in 2012 to a high standard reflecting the Scandinavian/Mediterranean influences of the current owners. Unlike typical local farmhouses, Casale Le Cannelle is flooded with light having sand-blasted oak beams, hand-fired pale terracotta tiles and a pale colour palette throughout, set off with splashes of colour from Finnish designers Marimekko.
Casale Le Cannelle is easily accessible through a gated entrance off the country road from the Val Minima to Cortona, yet totally private and protected by mature shrubs and trees.
Completing the property are 5000 m² of land with mature, terraced gardens, an orchard (with cherry, apricot, fig and plum trees), tennis court and 6 x 12 m swimming pool with sun terrace. There is an automatic sprinkler watering system for the gardens, an automatic light system and secure fencing throughout. There is a large parking area and a convenient garden shed for storage.
The house is built on two floors. An external staircase leads to a classic loggia on the first floor where you will find a magnificent high ceilinged main reception room with original stone fireplace. There is a new wood burning stove in place and, together with the full central heating system, easily turns this space into a cosy alternative for winter living. Also on this floor is a TV/music room and the drinks room with fitted bar and doors to the first floor terrace with spectacular views of the Appenines. Completing the first floor are a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (with tub) and 2 more bedrooms with a shared shower room.
Entering the house from the ground floor double steel and glass doors of the conservatory you will find the fully equipped kitchen leading through to the open plan dining room and double French doors to the large terrace with its spectacular views over the private gardens. In the summer months this is the heart of the house where you will be spending most of the time. Steps from this terrace lead down to the swimming pool. Also on the ground floor are three double bedrooms and three en-suite bathrooms.
The first floor can also be reached via a newly designed staircase with ground edge LED stair lighting
