Casa Teverina, Teverina di Cortona, Tuscany


4 Bedroom House Under Offer

This extraordinarily airy and spacious property measuring 315 sqm is something of a country idyll and was originally restored in the 70's with some upgrading and maintenance work carried out more recently.

The enormous open-plan living area of approximately 60 square metres has a stunning central fire-pit, high ceilings with a beautiful display of cross and T-beams as well as large arched French windows along the whole length of the living area and open directly into the garden.
The ground floor consists of the above mentioned above an open plan living area divided from the spacious kitchen by an archway from the main room.

Four wide stone steps lead up through a stone archway to a landing, off which there are two bedrooms, one with an adjacent bathroom and the second with a separate WC with washbasin.

On the first floor there is a large sitting room with fireplace, two bedrooms, one bathroom and a terrace/balconies from which to enjoy the view.

The property is located in a picturesque, rural setting, surrounded by meadows, farmland and woodland of circa 5 hectares. It is south facing, just off a well-maintained access road shared by neighbouring properties. It is private, but not isolated and has a restaurant nearby. In the nearby, tiny, village of Teverina - at 500 metres - there is a small grocery shop and gas station.

Cortona is a scenic 30 minute drive away (18kms) and in the opposite direction - towards Umbria - there is the large-ish village of San Leo (20 minutes), the small town of Trestina (30 minutes) and the market town of Umbertide (40 mins). Both the city of Perugia and the airport are less than an hour away. Within a 90 minute radius all of both Tuscany and Umbria's favourite towns can be reached with ease: Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Florence - Assisi, Gubbio, Perugia, Todi etc.

The property is immediately habitable, but with rustic interiors. It could be used 'as is' for any number of years, but it is basic, offering a simple lifestyle in a wonderful natural ambience. Under floor pipes - recently laid - have been predisposed for central heating to be installed. An electric water heater provides hot water. Water comes from a nearby spring. Gas for the kitchen is provided by a small GPL tank supplied locally.

Should one wish to upgrade the house - by insulating the roof, installing central heating, heat efficient doors and windows, a private well and a swimming pool, costs would range from circa €250,000 to €350,000 depending on what works were undertaken. The installation of a swimming pool requires special authorization, but should be feasible.

Definitely worth viewing if you are yearning for a genuine country retreat with large spaces and unique features.
