Elegant farmhouse surrounded by greenery
This elegant farmhouse is located near the small and ancient village of Scrofiano. Accessible by a short stretch of white road, it enjoys privacy and an enchanting panorama without being too far away from the services and main roads to reach all the Sienese attractions. After a short cypress driveway, you will reach the square in front of the farmhouse, overlooking the well-kept meadow surrounded by flowerbeds and a large swimming pool in the centre. The stone farmhouse has several accesses from the ground floor that allow multiple uses. In fact, the owners have been doing B B activities for a few years using the 4 bedrooms with en suite bathroom on the ground floor and its breakfast room, and the entire first floor as an elegant residence. The latter consists of a large and bright kitchen – dining room connected, through a wooden staircase, to a living area from which you access a large terrace with beautiful views over the garden, pool and the woods surrounding the property. The sleeping area on the east side of the farmhouse consists of 3 bedrooms, a study and 2 bathrooms plus convenient storage room. Traditional wooden ceilings and soleplates, natural wood flooring and walls painted in bright and sunny colours make the rooms particularly enjoyable. The bathrooms, all of large dimensions, are refined with valuable materials and are fitted with bathtubs and showers. The house is sold partially furnished; the furnishings are of high quality and refined taste. On the ground floor, there are also some utility rooms for the management of the farmhouse such as storing gardening materials or whatever else. The property includes over 4 hectares of surrounding land mostly for arable land.
The farmhouse is located close to the small village of Scrofiano, in the town of Sinalunga. The origins of the village are to be found during the XI Century, although the name can deduce a probable Lombard origin. Scrofiano preserves, almost intact, the medieval structure with the classic elliptical plan arranged with the largest diameter in the east-west. The village also retains some parts of the walls, remains of towers and two of the three doors. It is still possible to see the “Cassero Cacciaconti”, an articulated construction in the city centre, whose courtyard and gateway remained almost intact. Scrofiano is part of the much better known “Valdichiana” within which, along a wonderful circuit of about 40 km, it is possible to touch the 9 major centres of this area: from Cetona to Chianciano and Montepulciano passing from San Casciano dei Bagni, Cortona and Sarteano up to Sinalunga. There are four gates to Valdichiana: you can choose to go North dropping from Crete; you can take it behind coming from the East and along the Trasimeno Lake and then over the pass between a luxuriance of olive groves; you can take it from the West going along the Orcia river and then, from Sarteano, starting to feel the fresh air of these place so ancient as to be suspended in time; you can finally arrive South from the “autostrada del sole” taking the Chiusi exit and along the picturesque hilly bends that connect Montepulciano to San Quirico, along those amazing landscapes. The nearby Sinalunga offers as well all the amenities of a modern town and retains an old town full of churches, works of art and Medieval buildings of great charm that makes this place a perfect destination between culture, holidays, hiking and flavours.
