Exclusive property in via S.Margherita

The ambassador’s residence

Cortona Cod. C115C

This stunning 4 bedroom/ 3 bathroom (232 mq) residence is situated on the “piano nobile” of a sixteenth century palazzo on the historic Via Santa Margherita. It overlooks the famous Piazza Garibaldi and ancient medieval entrance of Cortona on the Via Nazionale. The residence is accessed by massive solid oak double doors entering a ground floor hallway with vaulted ceilings. An ancient stone staircase leads up to an in-suite cantina/ technical/utility room of ample proportions and on to the substantial and luxurious living quarters. The residence is blessed with four massive double windows in the open plan living room and kitchen/dining room which take in an endless panoramic vista of Cortona, the Val di Chiana, Lago Trasimeno and Monte Amiata. This open plan space is centred on a massive ancient stone fireplace. The residence is newly renovated incorporating all new electrical, plumbing, windows (double glazed wood framed), antique style cast iron radiators, rewired original antique art deco lighting, original ancient cotto tile and marble floors, original antique stone fire-places (fully functional), and is fully frescoed with historic renaissance themes and details throughout. The 5 meter high ceilings retain their original ancient wood beams. The bathrooms (2 ensuite) are ultra-sophisticated and stylish, incorporating Carrara marble tiling and vanities, stainless steel and chrome fixtures and glass showers with a glamorous silver and porcelain Devon & Devon free standing claw-foot bathtub in the master bath. The master bath also features its own antique marble fireplace and is separated from the bedroom by a massive glazed double sliding french doors. The second bedroom has a small studiolo with stunning library “curiosity cabinet” frescoes– perfect as a home office or high fashion walk in closet. The fourth bedroom and separate common bathroom both have luminous skylights. All spaces are pre-wired/plumbed for air-conditioning.

This residence is the ultimate “pied a terre” in Cortona, completely modernized, but retaining all of its renaissance flair and features, steps (literally just 30 steps) from the heart of Cortona’s bistros and shops, with ample parking and easy access to transport. It has unbeatable views of the town and country-side and is as close as one can get to living “la dolce vita” in a turn-key renaissance palazzo in the most famous and beautiful Tuscan medieval hill-town. It would also be perfect for operation as a bed and breakfast.
