House of Rosemary
Located in Cortona’s Montanare area and sitting on a hillside with panoramic views, Casale del Rosmatino is an extremely pretty property with a superior interior finish that is delightful. The property is being sold furnished and could be moved into immediately.
The house enjoys fantastic views overlooking the entire Val d’Esse and beyond to the Valdichiana. It is not isolated and is just off a mountain road leading from Cortona to Mercatale.
It very near to an excellent restaurant run by the Baracchi family, owners of Cortona’s famous Falconiere Hotel who also market fine wines under their own Baracchi label.
At a distance of just two kilometres from Montanare there is the village of Pergo, a popular haunt for both local Italians and an eclectic mix of international residents.
The property consists of a light and pretty kitchen, a sitting room, a study, a guest bathroom on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms leading off a central landing on the first floor.
There is also an adjacent garage which is used as a guest annex for which again the interior finish is charming.
In front of the house there is a well tended gardenand above the house is a small olive grove and vegetable garden mtsq 3.500.
Cortona town is just 10 kms away as is Camucia the new town below Cortona which has all services including a main line railway station (Milan-Florence-Rome). Perugia airport is 50 minutes away, Florence 1 hr 15 mins, Rome 2hrs, Pisa 2hrs 15 mins. Excellent access to all major motorways.
The only downside to this property is its vicinity to Montanare’s small local quarry, but given its many attributes, it is not a property to dismiss.
