Located two minutes away from the village of Mercatale di Cortona (AR), Casa degli Alberi is a 300-square-metre stone and brick villa developed on three floors. Surrounded by a fenced mature garden that unfolds on several levels, the property counts about a hundred trees including olive, cypress, fig, pine and fir trees creating a play of light and shade in the outdoor space, and delimiting its boundaries.

The ground floor offers two spacious living and dining areas connected to a bright kitchen with double access to the outside, which also leads to a generous loggia where one can spend the good season. On the other side of the ground floor a hallway leads to a large bathroom and the first bedroom.

Original stone staircases connect the various levels and on the second floor there is an equipped kitchen with dining space, a living room with open fireplace that connects to the upper floor, and an en-suite bedroom. On the third and top floor are three large rooms, including a reception room and two bedrooms, the last of which has access to its own bathroom.

The entire house is well restored and habitable, featuring terracotta floors, exposed beams, cupboards and cut-stone corners. A stony terrace connects to the kitchen on the first floor and overlooks, as does the entire property, the picturesque Lisciano-Niccone valley, East-facing. While if one were to plant a swimming pool in the spacious back garden, this would face the sunset.

A comfortable and spacious brick technical room completes the main unit.

Outside there is also an old brick barn adjacent to a loggia-entrance. The annex counts 40 squared metres and is framed by climbing plants. There are two gates, one at the front and one at the back, and plenty of parking space.

Despite its proximity to the town of Mercatale and its amenities, which can be reached in only 5 minutes on foot, Casa degli Alberi is well secluded and one can enjoy a quiet, intimate atmosphere surrounded by greenery.
