The property is made up of two main buildings, plus a small tool shed.
The country house (480 sqm – 5,165 sqft) is laid out onto three floors and organized as follows:
- Ground floor: living room, dining room, kitchen, cellar, laundry. Separated from the residence, but still on the ground floor, there is also a garage.
- First floors: accessed either via an internal staircase or directly from the outside, this floor is made up of a reading room, double bedroom with walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom and terrace, and a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
- Second floor: accessed via a staircase departing from the reading room on the first floor, the turret of the property is entirely occupied by a bedroom with bathroom and terrace.
The dependance (50 sqm – 528 sqft) is laid out onto two floors and located just next to the main country house.
The property has been finely restored, preserving those typical traits of Tuscan country houses. On the outside we can see beautiful exposed stone walls, with the building surrounded by a terracotta and stone tiled walkway. On the inside, we can find a nice mix of parquet and terracotta tiles, disposed in geometric patterns, while roofs are supported by wooden beams. Finally, we can find some beautiful stone fireplaces and high-quality wooden fixtures.
On the outside the property is surrounded by 5 hectares of land, mainly covered in woods. Right around the building we can find a beautiful and well-maintained garden with a rectangular 15 x 8 m swimming pool fitted with a nice terracotta solarium. The pool grants a beautiful view over the surrounding nature.
The real gem of the property, however, is the synthetic tennis court located just below the pool, on a dedicated terrace, which grants the possibility to keep fit in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Last but not least, the property comes with 200 olive trees which can easily be exploited to produce enough oil for a whole family.
The property is in excellent conditions and thus usable right-away. The presence of 4 bedrooms and a dependance allows the starting of a hosting activity without any problem, given also the presence of a pool and a tennis court which could grant a nice diversion for guests. In alternative, thanks to the excellent level of privacy granted by the position, it is always possible to use the property as a private residence.
