in cortona’s historic town centre and just a couple of steps away from the city’s central piazzas and via nazionale, a genuinely welcoming and well laid out second floor apartment (70 sqmts) with south facing terrace and views out over the valdichiana.
the apartment consists of large entrance hallway, spacious and light living room with hand decorated walls and a functioning wood stove, ample, well designed kitchen, two bedrooms, one bathroom (with bathtub) and a useful storage space.
there are traditional exposed wooden beams and cotto laid floors and the general ambience is one of light and comfort.
‘la piece de resistance’ is of course the terrace which is 11sqmts – so big enough to dine out on - and from which one can enjoy wonderful sunsets, firework displays (at new year) and quiet, moments in which to ruminate peacefully.
the terrace, somewhat compromised by the possibility of peeking neighbours, is accessed both from the kitchen and the living room.
to make this apartment even more interesting, on the ground floor there is a large, renovated room with a beautiful, antique wooden ceiling with tiny private internal courtyard. for the wine enthusiasts it would make, a great wine cellar and/or the perfect place to hang out and do some serious wine tasting.
all utilities are attached and the apartment has been pre-disposed for air-conditioning.
there are 3 other units in the building and no condominium fees.
this apartment has all the requisites for being a perfect long term investment and would be easy to rent out in the summer months given its central location.
definitely worth viewing.

about cortona real estate
cortona real estate (aka agenzia immobiliare cortonese) was set up in 1997 dedicated to the local italian market. in recent years, our solid reputation for sincerity and transparency, led many foreigners to our doors. in order to serve them well, we joined forces with helpworksitalia (helpworksitalia.com) so as to promote the agency globally and provide assistance in fluent english.
we have a large selection of properties in the area from town houses and apartments to country properties in beautiful settings (villas, farmhouses, residential complexes). we have restored properties, properties in need of upgrades and abandoned properties in need of complete restoration.
for those with more modest budgets, we also have a choice of practical and comfortable homes – new builds, apartments in condominiums, portions of old houses - which can be viewed on our italian website: immobiliare-cortonese.com.
if you can’t find what you are looking for, or if you are looking further afield (castiglion del lago, montepulciano, lucignano, sansepolcro) we would be more than happy to do you a personalised search. we have an excellent working relationship with a number of other agencies. just email us your requirements and we’ll start asking around.
cortona real estate’s base motto is clarity and honesty in all things. we take great pride in the generous comments, made by past clients, attesting to our competence and sense of responsibility. you can see all our feedback on the agency website (cortonarealestate.it)
in fact, unlike many agencies, cortona real estate works together with its vendors to try and ensure properties conform to all regulations before they are advertised. checks are carried out by a registered surveyor who cross references the actual state of the property (as seen and measured) with all documents deposited at the land and building registry and those deposited in the local town hall. this tends to avoid nasty surprises at a later date.
cortona real estate also collates all relevant documentation for calculating eventual purchasing taxes and fees, annual council taxes and even annual overheads for the individual properties. we like to be certain, that as a buyer, you have all necessary information to hand before making a final commitment.
we believe our strength lies in our meticulousness to detail. we leave nothing to chance.
cortona real estate knows that buying or selling a property in a foreign country can be daunting. for this reason, we look after our clients through each step of the purchasing (and selling) process.
as part of the comprehensive assistance we provide all purchasers, we also transfer utilities, opens bank accounts, sort out payment of annual taxes and can organise direct debits and/or payment through a client dedicated bank account. we can also be of help with regard to long term property management, small and large maintenance jobs, building works and complete renovations.
basically, we are always available. if we can help, we are happy to do so. we will never just abandon you!
the agency is registered at the chamber of commerce in arezzo and has been a member of fiaip (federation of professional italian estate agents) since 1997.
