On arrival at this traditional style Tuscan villa one is immediately struck by the tranquillity of its location, the wonderful panoramic views and the welcoming traditional Tuscan interiors. The property was originally a farmstead which dates back to the 1890s. Its current owners restored the house and landscaped the grounds and subsequently have maintained it in excellent condition as a much loved family summer residence.
The accommodation of the house is spread over two floors with sitting room, dining room and kitchen found on the ground floor, leading out onto the ‘temple-like’ dining loggia. There is also a WC, laundry room and staff bedroom with bathroom on this floor. The rooms to this floor boast high vaulted ceilings and charming original features such as the old vaulted bread oven in the dining room and large fireplace in the sitting room.
On the first floor the rooms are distributed excellently providing ample accommodtion for a large family and/or several guests. One finds a study and five double bedrooms, all with ensuite bath or shower room. The style of the bedrooms is both traditional Tuscan with the exposed beams and terracotta floors whilst modern comforts are provided with bathrooms replaced in 2015 and air conditioning for use during the summer months.
Beautifully landscaped gardens complete the villa with wonderful views to be enjoyed across the breathtaking countryside and towers of San Gimignano in the distance. There is a large swimming pool, 7 x 14m, with an infinity edge set away from the house, surrounded by a terracotta sunbathing area. The large shaded loggia serves as a further living space for the summer months with both a dining and seating area.
The villa is located close to several villages and towns for shopping, services and dining out. Florence can also be reach easily, either by car or by train, in approx 30/40 mins and both Pisa and Florence airports are approx 1 hour by car.
