This beautiful farmhouse complex has carefully restored with great attention to detail, so as to combine authentic architectural features and an original rustic style with all modern comforts. It consists of a large main house and an outbuilding (dependance). They are set in lovely, well-tended lawns, within a 400-hectare estate of farmland, comprising olive groves and vineyards, just outside San Gimignano (8 km). This privileged position commands superb unrestricted views of the surrounding woodland and hills and guarantees privacy and tranquillity.
Centrally heated throughout, the properties have bright, generously-sized interiors, in which many traditional Tuscan design features have been preserved, such as: wide brick archways interconnecting rooms, sloping terracotta-tiled and wood-beamed ceilings, stone or tiled floors, light painted walls, open wood-burning fireplaces and wrought-iron bedsteads. Many of the bedrooms have floor-length net curtains surrounding the beds, with bedspreads and window curtains in elegant matching fabrics. The kitchens and bathrooms have been refurbished with an eye for style and provide all requisite modern fittings and appliances.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL: The gravel drive extending from the property’s entrance gates first runs past the “dependance” outbuilding, which is set on a raised lawn terrace, overlooking the pool terrace below. The drive then continues up to the main house, where a number of “tufo” rocks (local volcanic stone used for building) have been left on display as an eye-catching ornamental feature. There are ample shaded parking spaces nearby.
In front of the main villa, the lower sun-terrace consists of a paved pool surround and lovely, well-tended lawns, where loungers and sunshades invite you to relax and take it easy! The pool itself measures 7x14 metres and maximum depth 1,4 m. Next to the house, a covered-in loggia, accommodating a large wooden refectory table and with an idyllic scenic backdrop, makes a wonderful spot for outdoor dining.
Access to the villa is via an approximately 1.5 km stretch of unpaved road in good condition.
