Vintage house of great historical and artistic importance, in small hamlet between Tuscany and Umbria, divided into four levels, renovated with refinement, just outside Cortona, with attached an impressive second building, used in 1800 as silkworm house. The manor house, built in local stone, consists of 6 bedrooms with en suites bathroom, located on different floors, accessible by an ancient stone staircase. On the walls, you can still see layers of original plasterwork adorned with evocative reproductions of anatomical studies of Leonardo da Vinci. On the ground floor, there is a living room, a kitchen and a laundry. The original materials, the antique doors, the painted ceilings and the arches guarantee the authenticity of the property and its great historical and artistic value, making it unique and precious. The Bachificio is a large building built in 1860 on 2 floors with interesting and precious architectural details. The ground floor consists of 2 large rooms paved with slabs of hand-cut squared stone, made unique by the wear of time, with brick cross vaults, imposing columns and stone fireplace. On the same floor there are also a kitchen designed to become a restaurant kitchen, 3 bathrooms and a utility room. A massive stone staircase leads to the first floor, consisting of a huge room with central arch of stone and brick and high ceilings, wooden floor in original fir of 1860. This room is very bright and has a spectacular view of the valley. The basement, with cross vaults and wooden floor, has been completely renovated and could easily be used as a spa room, having already all connections. Next to this building, there is a small caretaker apartment, an old wood-burning oven and a covered patio. All set in a charming garden with a swimming pool with breathtaking views of the valley below.
