Villa Santa Maria Nuova is a unique Villa fortunately placed in the centre of a stunning 1 Acre terraced plot, filled with olive trees and Sangiovese vines, with an unrivaled 180' view a location can find.
With over 300 m2 Santa Maria Nuova 139, is a large, bright, airy villa, with a contemporary modern interior twist. Complimenting and sitting naturally along side the Ancient that surrounds it. A stones throw from Porta Colonia and entering Cortona, it takes 3 minutes walk along Cortona's Etruscan walls to reach the town. Build in the '70's it has recently had an extensive renovation.
State of the art German underfloor heating throughout, a completely new roof, raised with extra full size windows, external terracotta roof tiles, copper drainage and internally white washed wooden beams. Brand new large wrought iron coloured alluminium windows and shutters mean no annual maintenance, complete functionality, security and the pleasure of watching ever changing seasons through these tall 'live paintings'.
For 'Bellezza' and that authentic cozy winter warmth feel, there are 2 wood burning fires in the main lounge and the Mansarda Suite. Together with complete whole house insulation these careful considerations mean it's a super economical, low maintenance house to run and manage.
5 bedrooms. 5 Bathrooms (3 En-Suite). Large living room (12x5 mt) , open plan kitchen and dining room. Beautifully converted attic with a living area, a travetino bathroom with stand alone bath, separate double shower a 2 skylights to watch the stars. 1 front balcony, 1 back terrace, separate laundry room, a technical storage room and a Garage.
Planning permission has been approved for an 8 x 4 mt infinity swimming pool running along the widest terrace where you don't loose a minute of sunshine.
The villa benefits from newly laid stone walls, giant slab steps of 'pietra serena' lead to the main entrance and strong stone columns that give a walk/drive through the automatic wrought iron gates an impressive entrance.
The most lasting impression of this truly unique (one-off?) property has to be it's position....the vicinity to Cortona town centre and culture and the simply stunning Tuscan views.
