The property consists of a large main house, a guest house, a custodian or staff apartment, independent garage and 2 Ha of land, the majority of which is olive grove. The excellent location is sought after by many as it enjoys both Chianti countryside and close vicinity to Florence.
Restored by the current owners in the 1990’s this typical Chianti farmhouse was built using local stone on solid foundations and dates back at least 150 years. During restoration considerable effort was made to retain original features and characteristics such as hand-crafted stone sinks, hard wood beamed ceilings and cotto flooring. The house offers approx. 500 sqm of floorspace consisting of 7 double bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. The original lay-out has been modified by the current owners to create two separate living areas each with its own kitchen, to suit their extended family situation. The property is still connected internally and all areas may be accessed without going outside, however both areas enjoy privacy and can be made securely separate by simply closing and locking a door. The interiors of the property have been finished to a high level of quality which is apparent throughout. Blending more modern materials such as parquet flooring with more traditional materials such as stone antique fireplaces give the property an authentic yet contemporary feel. Both kitchens were custom made and fitted and some of the bathrooms feature marble his/her sinks and shower basins. The ground floor of the main farmhouse has multiple access points which also create a lot of natural light inside.
Situated adjacent to the main farmhouse is a two floor stone barn ( 110 sqm floorspace ) which has been converted into a studio apartment on the first floor and garage/storage area on the ground floor. The lower floor could be easily connected to the first floor to make a unified habitation with at least two bedrooms.
There is a small studio apartment ( 28 sqm ) built for a custodian or staff located a short distance from the main house.
