Recently restored farmhouse, now converted into a charming guesthouse consisting of seven units situated just south of Siena in the Val di Chiana.
The property, originally a farmhouse dating back to the 15th century, has been completely restored by the current owners who converted the property into a beautiful country guesthouse. This charming resort offers three suites and four apartments, with the potential of offering a further two apartments (two units are currently used as breakfast room and storage). The suites consist of two bedrooms, lounge-dining area, and bathroom, whilst the apartments consist of one bedroom, lounge-diner and bathroom.
The owners endeavoured to restore the property using traditional Tuscan materials keeping true to the buildings heritage and character. The quality of the materials and the owners efforts are clearly visible, as the property completed in 2011 still looks like a brand new restoration.
During the conversion into a guesthouse, the current owners kept open the possibility of returning the property to its original "private house" condition. By paying careful attention to load bearing walls, and the plumbing network, the owners are able to convert the property into a "one family" private house relatively easily.
Accessed via a quiet country lane, the property is situated in a panoramic position, with beautiful views over Lucignano and the surrounding Tuscan landscape. The 6 ha (15 acre) of land which comes with the property is comprised of olive groves, gardens, pasture land and a pool area.
Within the grounds the owners have erected a gazebo which is used for outdoor dining during the summer. Permission has been given to build a further 1300 m2 of space.
The property is situated just outside the historic town of Foiano della Chiana, famous for its Etruscan-Roman origins and annual carnival. Siena can be reached in less than half an hour, and the highway is less than ten minutes from the property.
