La Residenza dell’Ambiasciatore

La Residenza dell’Ambiasciatore is a wonderful apartment overlooking Cortona and the surrounding countryside, and is located on the main floor of a 16th century building in the historic Via Santa Margherita of the famous Tuscan village of Cortona.

In the heart of beautiful Cortona stands this wonderful property with a gross living area of ​​approximately 230 square meters which is accessed by massive double doors in solid oak that welcome you in a corridor with vaulted ceilings. In the open-plan living room and kitchen / dining room, four massive double windows offer an endless panoramic view of the village of Cortona and the surrounding countryside. This open-plan space is centered around an ancient massive stone fireplace. On the same level there are three bathrooms (two of which are en suite) and four bedrooms. The master bathroom features an antique marble fireplace and is separated from the bedroom by a massive double-glazed sliding French door. A bedroom is characterized by a small study with splendid frescoes, perfect as a home office or high fashion walk-in closet. The residence is completed by a cellar / technical room of about 20 square meters used for different purposes.

State of repair

The apartment has been finely restored maintaining the typical characteristics of Tuscan homes. Inside we find wooden window frames with double glazing, antique-style cast iron radiators, original antique art deco rewired lighting, original antique terracotta and marble floors, original period stone fireplaces (fully functional). The residence is completely frescoed with Renaissance historical themes and details. The 5 meter high ceilings retain the ancient wooden beams, while the bathrooms are ultra-sophisticated and elegant and incorporate Carrara marble tiles.


The Residence has all the necessary main utilities. The heating system is autonomous and powered by methane gas and is predisposed for an air conditioning system.

Use and Potential Uses

The property is certainly an excellent choice for use as a permanent residence, but it is also ideal as a second home to spend your holidays in one of the most beautiful villages in Tuscany, which is Cortona. The apartment lends itself to being an excellent investment also in terms of tourist rentals.
