Casale Poggioni, lying in the beautiful countryside between Cortona and the Umbrian border, this traditional Tuscan stone farmhouse for sale, has been restored to the highest standards. It is set in a secluded south-west-facing position on a hillside with stunning views over a gentle valley.
Casale Poggioni is composed of two fully independent stone houses connected by a remarkable covered loggia with impressive stone arch.
Below the terrace in front of the house, there is a 10 x 5 metre swimming-pool which also enjoys the stunning view. To one side of the house there is a small gorge with stream; on others, there are fields with olive trees and wild flowers.
The house is situated in a hilly, wooded area of great beauty. There are wonderful walks in the immediate area and a rich variety of wildlife, including wild boar, deer, pine martens and birds of prey. The road to Cortona winds up and over a range of hills and affords wonderful views of Lake Trasimeno. Cortona is a gem of a medieval Tuscan hill town with interesting Etruscan remains and has many good restaurants. In the other direction, the road follows the valley into Umbria and to the small town of Trestina where there are supermarkets and several other shops, as well as restaurants. There is also a supermarket in Morra, some 15 minutes away. The closest restaurant is around 10 minutes by car.
Casale Poggioni is an excellent base from which to explore both Tuscany and Umbria with many interesting towns, such as Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Citta di Castello, Sansepolcro, Gubbio, Arezzo, Castiglion Fiorentino within easy reach. From Castiglion Fiorentino or Camucia, trains can be taken to Rome and Florence.
The smaller house (ca. 120 m²) is used by the owners as their private home and has been restored with attention to detail, preserving the original character of the house but implementing modern comfort and style. The house is entered from the loggia into an inviting living/dining room with fireplace. Three steps down lead to a large fully fitted kitchen with cooking island and separate pantry/laundry room. On the ground floor there are also a guest bathroom and boiler room. From the living room stairs lead to the first floor with 2 bedrooms each with built-in cupboards and ensuite bathroom.
The larger house (ca. 180 m²) is successfully rented out for holidays or ideal to accommodate family and friends. It is spread over 3 floors with on the ground floor a comfortable kitchen/diner, 2 bedrooms (one double and one single), both with French windows which open on to the vine covered terrace and a shared bathroom.
Stairs lead to the first floor with the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a cosy lounge with access to a loggia, the perfect place from which to watch the setting sun.
