A truly charming country property with far reaching views, infinity swimming pool and guest house. The whole property has been restored to a very high standard providing accommodation suitable for use as a private home or as a B&B rental property.
On arrival at the property one is immediately struck by the beauty and tranquillity of the location. The charming ancient stone-paved courtyard at the heart of the property leads to both the main house and the guest house. The main house, being built into the hillside, has various entrances as well as an original stone stairway leading to the first floor accommodation where there are six ensuite bedrooms. To the lower ground, with access from the gardens one finds the seventh bedroom with its ensuite bathroom. All bathrooms are finished to a high standard with marble surfaces, both traditional in style but providing comtemporary standards.
The ground floor has large open plan rooms, all with exterior access. A grandiose pietra serena fireplace is the focal point of the main sitting room whilst the draw of the dining room is its french doors on the panoramic pergola; an ideal environment for al fresco dining during the hot summer months. The ground floor also has a kitchen, WC and separate study.
The Guest House
To the opposite side of the courtyard one finds the guest house, again built into the hillside with exterior access into both the first and ground floors. The ground floor has a kitchen-diner, living room, bathroom and laundry room then to the first floor one finds two double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a further bathroom.
The Gardens & Grounds
The grounds cover approximately 3 hectares with manicured terraced gardens around the residences with herb and lavender beds and fruit trees. There are also approximately 40 olive trees producing a good annual oil for the family's use. The rest of the land is laid to woodland and there is a large infinity swimming pool with rock features and truly fantastic views.
The property is located in a quiet rural position yet within easy reach of the San Donato entrance to the main Siena-Florence road therefore allowing approximately 30 mins travel time to either city. Castellina is 15 minutes away, as is Poggibonsi, where a good range of services and restaurants can be found.
