Description

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. La Certosa is a charming, skilfully restored stone farmhouse with private pool, dating back to the 17th century, located in a spectacular panoramic setting in typical Tuscan countryside, just over 1 km from the historic centre of the renowned medieval town of Cortona. The rooms have conserved intact the authenticity of the property, with terracotta floors, ceilings with exposed beams and terracotta tiles and numerous wall niches, and have been made warm and welcoming with antique, rustic-style furniture and artistic and decorative objects of high quality. Importance has also been given to functionality, with modern accessories such as air conditioning in the bedrooms and the ground floor living area, completely renovated bathrooms and wi-fi connection. The property extends over 5 hectares of woodland and panoramic terracing with olive and fruit trees, bordered by the green hills of Cortona to the west and by the Val di Chiana to the peaks of Monte Cetona and Monte Amiata. The well-kept garden, with a large, panoramic lawn area in front of the portico with the outdoor dining area, is completed by a beautiful pool with a breathtaking view over the truly unique landscape of the valley with its enchanting sunsets. Cortona, with its shops, restaurants and open-air markets, can also be reached by a fascinating 20-minute walk through nature and history, along a private road through woods of oaks and walnuts, crossed by a stream, and then along the old road that from the convent of Le Celle, passing in front of the historical church of Santa Maria Nuova that dates back to the second half of the 16th century, led to “Porta Colonia”, one of the openings in the old imposing walls of Cortona. La Certosa, located in Tuscany and just a few kilometres from Umbria, is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday and to visit the famous rural borghi of San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino in Val d'Orcia and the magnificent area of Chianti and Lake Trasimeno, the largest lake in central Italy. Also within easy reach are major Tuscan towns, such as Siena, Florence and Arezzo, and those of nearby Umbria, such as Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto.

Interior

The property consists of the main farmhouse and an annex. MAIN HOUSE: The house has two floors. The main entrance on the ground floor, just a few steps from the parking area, leads to the dining room and the fully-equipped kitchen with direct access outside. A large living room with sofas and a functioning fireplace. Outside this room is the large stone-paved portico with table and chairs for outdoor dining. The living room leads out to a corridor leading to a bathroom with a shower and a double bedroom. The two floors of the house are connected, internally, by a wooden spiral staircase in the ground floor living room up to the first floor and, externally, by a stone staircase from the garden up to the loggia that leads into the large sitting room on the first floor with ornamental fireplace, around which the sleeping area is spread. This includes a double bedroom with king size bed, a twin bedroom, a bathroom with shower and an other twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. ANNEX: In the annex, located a few metres from the house and adjacent to the parking area, there are a living room, a double bedroom with king size bed, a bathroom with shower and tub and the laundry area.

Park

The property, reached along a private road through a wood of oaks and walnuts crossed by a small stream, covers 5 hectares characterised by vast panoramic terracing with olive and fruit trees. An iron gate leads into the garden, flanked on one side by tall cypress trees and on the other by the annex, in front of which is a parking space for up to 5 cars (just outside the gate, in the adjacent olive grove, is space for more cars). The house is framed by beds of colourful roses and shrubs of fragrant rosemary and surrounded by silvery olive trees. The large green lawn area, shaded by three large old pine trees, in front of the portico with the outdoor dining area outside the living room, has a unique view over Cortona and the whole valley and so is the ideal place to watch enchanting sunsets while sipping a cool apéritif or enjoying a meal with friends. The lawn continues along the side of the house where there is an area with a ping pong table, followed by the beautiful swimming pool which lies on slightly higher terracing with a breathtaking view of the immense plateau of the Val di Chiana, bounded on the horizon by the peaks of Monte Cetona and Monte Amiata.

Swimming Pool

The private pool, enclosed by a wooden fence, lies in the middle of a lawn area in a panoramic position. About 15 m from the house, it is reached across the lawn and up a flight of stone steps. Rectangular with a white stone edge, it measures 10 x 5 m with the depth ranging from 1,10 to 2 m. Lined in sand-coloured PVC, it has chlorine purification, internal lights and Roman steps for access to the water. In the surrounding sunbathing area are sunbeds, deckchairs, a table with chairs, an umbrella and a cold-water shower. The pool is available from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October.
