This beautiful independent cottage is the result of the skilful renovation of a country church and is spread over two levels. On the ground floor, there is the large living room with a scenic stone wall. Going up three steps, you reach a large open-plan masonry kitchen overlooking the external courtyard. To the right of the living area there is a dining room, which has a beautiful fireplace, a closet and an access to the garden. On the other side of the house are the master bedroom with a large walk-in closet – originally a second bedroom – and a large bathroom with shower and tub. A beautiful terracotta staircase leads to the first floor, where there are a comfortable living area, a bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The property has a brick paved courtyard ideal for outdoor dining and a large garden. The floors are handmade terracotta, the ceilings in rafters and bricks. The property has recently undergone a thorough renovation, carried out using quality materials and attention to detail.
The renovated farmhouse is located in Santa Colomba, in the municipality of Monteriggioni (SI), in a hamlet of medieval origins on the slopes of the Montagnola Senese, which is one of the main hilly areas in the province of Siena and has been declared a site of community interest. Among its peculiarities are the extraction of the yellow Siena marble, used over the centuries for various cathedrals in Italy and of a particular building stone, the “tower stone”. The property is about 14 km from the city of Siena and 10 km from the castle of Monteriggioni, from where it is possible to enter the Florence / Siena motorway junction and reach all the main arteries of Tuscany. Also within a radius of about 20 km is the La Bagnaia golf club. An excellent compromise between the peace of the Sienese countryside and the city of art.
