The single storey structure was built using wooden trusses allowing high ceilings and light-filled rooms. The rooms wrap around a central loggia providing the ideal environment for shaded outdoor living and dining which is so very important for the enjoyment of the Tuscan spring, summer and autumn. The principle reception room boasts open-plan living with spaces flowing from the kitchen-diner to the seating area and opening onto the gardens and loggia. The focal point of the main seating area is the majestic, fully functioning fireplace and the property also has heating and cooling systems throughout for summer and winter. For those wanting a quieter space for relaxation or home-working there is a separate study room and there is a laundry and guest WC to the rear of the kitchen. All the bedrooms lead off a corridor running the length of the north wing of the house. The rooms are all suitable as double bedrooms with two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom.
