For a thousand years Il Mulinaccio was part of the holdings of the Ricasoli family’s Castello di Meleto. Originally it was a communications tower and later a mill before becoming a villa.
The property consists of the main house with five double bedrooms and two double bedroom apartments in an adjacent building. The villa features large, traditional rooms and covers an area of 440 sq m; the apartments cover 160 sq m giving a total area of 600 sq m.
The house was completely renovated in 1999, and great care was taken to ensure this was done sympathetically, respecting the historical structure of the building.
Wherever possible authentic local materials were used so that, whilst the property has all the comforts of a modern villa, many of the original features including meter thick walls, brick and timber ceilings, cotta tiled floors and open fireplaces remain.
Il Mulinaccio is situated in 2.4 hectares of park like grounds. There are beautiful established trees and shrubs as well as maintained lawns, a swimming pool and a practical kitchen garden. There are outside areas for sitting or eating. A stream runs through the property on its way to joining the Arbia river, flowing to the Mediterranean.
The large swimming pool of 14 x 7 meters with diving board is set in a secluded part of the garden, surrounded by woodland. It is reached by crossing a wooden bridge over the stream. There is a BBQ, bar fridge and covered table with gazebo at the pool.
Il Mulinaccio has views towards Castello di Meleto and the medieval hilltop village of Vertine. In addition the attractions of Florence and Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Pisa, San Gimignano, Montalcino and Montepulciano, are all within a drive of an hour or so.
