PROPRIETA FORNO DI SASSO - trattativa riservata

Set in the heart of the mediaeval hill town of Cortona, this multi-level townhouse is just steps from the main town square, Piazza Repubblica, and a short stroll to all of Cortona’s shopping, restaurants, and parking. Originally a monastery, this historic home has local terracotta floor tiles, original wood beams (sand blasted), an artisan-crafted wood staircase, high quality doors and windows made of chestnut wood, and original stone walls. Spectacular panoramic views of the Valdichiana from nearly every window make this special home a unique opportunity in one of Italy’s most sought-after hill towns. The house and roof have been meticulously maintained and are in turn-key condition. A large taverna, complete with a kitchen and an ancient stone oven (forno di sasso), is being offered as a separate purchase opportunity.
