Cortona's Castle

The Cortona's Castle is a beautiful property located on the hills of Cortona, built in the Middle Ages as well as customs and Florentine fortress, consists of 3.5 hectares of land and several buildings (3 houses and several outbuildings for a total net area of 568 sq m.) Surrounded by walls. A building has been completely renovated, others need to be recovered but are structurally sound. Possibility to build a swimming pool. The property may have a destination  like rural, civil, b & b, residences), or hotel or commercial (restaurant, spa, excursion center, nature center or other). Access via two local roads that end at the entrance of the property (total absence of transit). Away from Cortona 17 km (11 miles).
The property (568 sq mts livable space in all) contains three homes, a pentagonal structure once thought to be the original fortress entrance, and a traditional bread oven all of which is surrounded by a meter-wide defensive wall, complete with "feritoie" or lookout posts. Period details from the 1400's can be seen in the internal and external architecture. 
Inside the restored house, on the main floor, is a large living room with fireplace and French doors to the terrace, a granite-counter kitchen, and master bedroom with bathroom. Below, on the first floor is a large living area, a bathroom, a study and a bedroom. Heating can be by natural gas or by a top-of-the line Ungaro wood pellet stove that heats the entire house. There is a satellite dish for television reception, and internet reception via wi-fi and repeaters (Fiber optic internet is now available in the area), the water supply is well-water at a depth of 90 meters. The other two homes require a complete restoration, but they are structurally sound: one of the two homes has been inspected and certified by a structural engineer. There is no through-traffic, as the road ends at the property. There are two entry roads: one is unused and needs work, but it provides complete privacy and passes by no other homes.
