VILLA FONTANA CORTONA: MANOR VILLA FOR SALE IN CORTONA


In a hilly and panoramic position at the borders between Tuscany and Umbria, 16th-century manorial villa with park. The building (over 1,500 sqm) is the typical manorial dwelling, with huge frescoed halls, luxury finishes and a beautiful altana overlooking the surrounding countryside. The complex is immersed in a well-maintained 9.5-hectare park with a majestic fountain, a pool and several exotic plants from all over the world.

Basic services are available in the nearby village (1km; 2’) and Cortona is just 4 km away. From here one can then reach the most beautiful cities of Tuscany in less than two hours (Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Siena, Florence…).


DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS


The villa (1,590 sqm – 17,108 sqft) is laid over three floors plus a beautiful altana. On the ground floor are the reception halls, finely decorated and frescoed. The upper floors house the private quarters, with frescoed sitting rooms and bedrooms. From the altana one can enjoy a unique view over the surrounding park and countryside.

The first inception of the villa dates back to the 16th century when it was built as a summer residence by the noble family Alfieri. At the end of the century, the villa had already been sold to the ancestors of the current owners, whose family remained in possession of the property without interruptions (except a brief parenthesis during World War II when the villa was used as a headquarter by the Germans first and the British then). The current look of the villa dates back to the 18th century when the villa was totally restored and reworked.

 

Right next to the villa, on its right side, is a spacious orangery (230 sqm – 2,475 sqft) which is used during summer as an event and wedding hall, while in the winter it goes back to its original purpose of sheltering lemons from the cold.

 

The property is then completed by a cottage (90 sqm – 968 sqft) and a manorial chapel (25 sqm – 269 sqft).


EXTERIORS


The villa, as many manorial buildings from the 15th and 16th century, is surrounded by a beautiful 95,000-sqm park with a huge fountain and dotted with secular trees (redwoods, Chilean wine palms, Lebanese cedars, Greek firs…).

The tree-lined avenue is the central axis of the complex and divided the property into two sections: the eastern one with fields and agricultural activities, and the western one which is landscaped into a beautiful natural park. The road goes then around the villa to the back of the building, where one can find the cottage and another beautiful avenue with holm oaks and other exotic plants.

Behind the villa, in a defiladed and private position, is the round swimming pool (10 m in diameter) surrounded by an ample green area ideal as a solarium and as an event corner.
