Seano di Cortona,
Nestling in a small valley, with beautiful trees around, but not feeling enclosed, is a spectacularly restored mill. The detail that has gone into the design, and materials used are of the very highest quality.
The property consists of 2 detached properties. The smaller of the two was the original mill, where the machinery was housed the actual business of milling went on. It is arranged on 3 levels. At the upper ground floor level there is a kitchen/diner, on each of the first floor and the lower ground levels there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. The current owner uses the lower room at present as a sitting room. In the floor of the room, there is a glass panel that allows one to view the water passing through the old millrace. The old millpond has been cleverly converted to form a small swimming pool/Jacuzzi, and the filter system pumps the water through a series of tubes, underneath the house (where it can be seen from the lower ground floor room) and back into the pool. It really is amazing.
Nearing the end of its conversion, the larger property, which was once the miller’s home, has been wonderfully restored, offering a large kitchen/diner, impressively large sitting room with open fireplace, and at present, 2 double bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms. A project has been approved to extend this property to give a further bedroom with en suite if required.
On the upper terrace of the garden, which has been wonderfully landscaped, is a full size infinity pool, thus allowing tenants of each house to have a private swim! Provision has been made to create a garage, built into sloping landscape.Each property has a separate laundry.
The property is bounded on one side by a small stream; the original source of water to power the mill mechanism. The garden area amounts to some 3,000 sq. mts.
Everyday shopping can be done in the small alimentari situated in S. Leo Bastia about 10 minutes away. The weekly shop would be in Trestina, Citta di Castello or Umbertide.
