There is always an exception to the rule.
This suggestive, but secluded property stands strategically on the summit of a Tuscan hillside.
It is a partially restored ex-military garrison dating back to the Middle Ages.
30 minutes from all life as most people know it and yet, this stunning property with superlative views which extend as far as the eye can see, is something so unique it can only be described as priceless.
It is a peninsular in the midst of an ocean / a sea of views that astound, awe, humble / monument to history and timelessness / a micro-world in harmony with itself / a reminder of what once was / a reminder of what we once were / an inspiration as to what we still could be.
The nearby hillsides are alive with small farming communities whose lifestyle has changed little over the last few centuries. They are a traditional people who are still able to fix things that break and make things which work. They live in a world away from today's frenetic life-style; life in the fast lane is an anathema to them, as are the machinations of global politics and multi-nationals.
The property itself, a work of art crafted by stone masons from another era, stands on 8 acres of private land (2 acres with olive trees) and enjoys complete privacy. Although one might consider the property remote, it has the advantage of a restaurant, church, doctor's surgery and various guest houses a 5 minute drive away; a bar and restaurant with grocery essentials at 15 minutes; a perfectly maintained shared access road which is looked after by a local farmer under contract.
Cortona with its innumerous fine restaurants and fine wines is just 30 minutes away (17 kms). Within a radius of 90 minutes one could be in Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena - Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio ...
The property was originally built as a garrison or customs house in the late middle ages.
In the 1400's it was fortified to serve as a military outpost for the Florentine Republic.
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.
Structural restoration of the property began in the late 1990's, and a more recent detailed restoration of one home began in 2010.
All detail work on the property has been custom-done by local artisans.
The grounds contain 2 acres of olives trees, fig, plum, apricot and walnut trees; rosemary, hibiscus and laurel hedges.
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, 3 rooms and a bathroom.
Heating can be by natural gas or by a top-of-the line Ungaro wood pellet stove.
Satellite dish, wi-fi internet; the water supply by well..
