Medieval apartment with a view

Apartment in via Iannelli

Cortona Cod. C035CB

Stunning 2 bedroom /2 bath-room (85 mq) view apartment encompassing the top floor of a 12th century medieval house, one of the oldest continuously occupied spaces in Cortona on the most ancient and historic street, built into the very walls of the town by the Etruscans long before the birth of Christ. This second floor residence boasts a spacious open plan kitchen and living room with a huge window opening to a vista of the north west valley towards Arezzo, the other window opening onto the surrounding medieval town. This living space is centred by a beautiful traditional carved stone fire place (fully functional) and is bounded by a spacious open stair landing/foyer with an adjacent common bathroom with the same views as the kitchen. Also off this landing are two bedrooms—one with ensuite bathroom and broad vistas down the valley, the other with city views. The entire structure has been modernized, all electrical, plumbing, and heating is new–all radiators are new high efficiency units. The windows are all double paned wood framed modern construction, the floors are restored ancient cotto bricks, the interior doors are solid wood renaissance styled masterpieces, the bathrooms are modern and stylish tile with glass showers and dark antiqued wood vanities. The ceilings have all their original medieval exposed beams and cotto bricks—maintaining and highlighting their long history. There is, built into the wall at the front door, an ancient and venerable shrine to the Madonna which has been part of the house for centuries, still honoured by locals, who leave gifts and votive offerings for her blessings. The via Roma is less than ten steps from the front door so exiting the city is convenient and fast, with public parking lots less than 50 meters away, just outside the city gates. The apartment is prewired/ plumbed for air-conditioning and comes complete with a private ground floor cantina for storage. The roof is completely restored, fully insulated, and the exterior construction has been re-enforced and re-sealed given its’ historic importance.

This property is a wonderful opportunity to own a part of ancient, historical Cortona. If one opens any 100 year old Cortona travelogue this street and this house is often featured—and is even pictured. The structure represents the earliest period of Cortona’s medieval history at a point in time when municipal property taxes were first introduced. The taxes were based on street level frontage/square footage—so cunning owners cantilevered their second floors out over the street. This apartment represents one of these cantilevered structures, with all of its ancient wood beams and hand-made brick and stone walls completely intact and restored. Less than 200 meters from the Piazza della Repubblica centre of Cortona, this apartment represents the perfect piece of “La Dolce Vita” Cortona style. A sound investment, a perfect Cortona “pied a terre” and a superb rental income property.
