This is one of the most extraordinary houses now on the market in Southern Tuscany – a 400-year-old stone farmhouse on the outside and completely new on the inside (total reconstruction finished early 2017). Combine this with the wonderful location on a south-facing hillside just outside of the medieval village of Cortona and you have an exceptional purchase/investment opportunity. The exterior of the house has retained all of its old world look and charm. Inside is an elegant combination of the old (floating stone staircase, original oak beams, 600-year-old wood floors, old stone fireplaces, etc.) and the new (kitchens, bathrooms, lighting and plumbing fixtures, doors, windows, etc.). One of the truly special features is the larger than normal arched windows. The house is flooded with natural light and the view from every window is spectacular. The current owners were determined to make this house “made in Italy” and this they have done. The best local craftsmen and artisans were used and all materials were sourced in Italy, locally whenever possible – the travertine came from the quarry in nearby Rappalano, the Abascoto marble from Carrara, the antique oak floors from an artesian craftsman in Citta di Castello, the Malteni kitchen was designed and made in Milan, all the lighting and plumbing fixtures are Italian. The house has a wonderful feel of the best of old and new Italian design. This house is ready for its next 400 years. The house has the following features: • 3 bedrooms each with its own large bathroom – all have double sinks and walk in showers. There is space (already wired and plumbed) for a fourth bedroom and bathroom. • 3 kitchens – two inside and one outside. The main kitchen includes a cooking fireplace as does the outside kitchen • A spacious living room with an extra-large fireplace • 2 dining spaces inside • 2 dining spaces outside and several additional spaces for entertaining • A salt-water pool • All new plumbing, wiring, heat and air conditioning systems, floors, doors, windows, roof insulation, and electronics (internet, television, alarm system and remote gate controls). • All new high-end appliances. • An 80-tree olive orchard that surrounds the house (adjacent orchard property is available). • Easy 10-minute drive to Cortona and the train station
