The property is accessible via a gravel road in good condition; an electric gate opens onto the garden and lawn.
The magnificent house, presumably dating from the nineteenth century, retains the original brick façade that was perfectly preserved after the complete restoration works done in the late 90s.
The house consists of, on the ground floor: an entrance hall, a cosy living room with dining room, a second living room with fireplace, a kitchen, a bedroom with study and bathroom.
Outside there is a winter garden and a beautiful veranda, which leads to the stone pavement that runs around the property. Here one also finds an outdoor barbecue. In this same area, accessible from the exterior there is a bathroom / changing room, two technical rooms housing the LPG boilers and wood pellet boiler, and the laundry all of which are accessible from the outside and serve the swimming pool.
The first floor includes a second entrance that overlooks a double living room with fireplace, a dining room, a second spacious kitchen with terrace, a bathroom and a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This floor also houses a study / living room that connects internally to the ground floor and up to the second floor.
Climbing to the top floor one finds two more bedrooms, each with large vestibule and a large bathroom which is accessed through a hallway. Completing this floor is a terrace that overlooks the stunning valley.
The annex is divided into two large rooms: the first serves as a storeroom, the second as a garage with automatic door.
The garden perfectly circles house, and is kept as lawn with terraced areas done with stonewalls that are fixed without mortar, as is the ancient Tuscan tradition - "A secco". In the garden we find a panoramic swimming pool 6x12 m with large paved area, perfect for sunbathing.
It would be possible to section off the ground floor of the farmhouse from the other two floors, thus generating two units fully independent from each other.
