An elegant Manor house which harks back to more genteel times, with a grand entrance gate, frescoed architraves, spacious rooms, stained glass windows and a feeling of grandeur long since past.
This beautiful property is currently run as a successful upmarket holiday home catering for stressed executives seeking comfortable living and easy access to many of the beautiful surrounding Tuscan towns and cities.
The property is approached via the elegant gates and into a path lined with box hedging.
The house is divided currently into three main living areas.
The smaller house which sleeps six people is open plan on the ground floor with a cosy lounge and kitchen/dining area, a full size bathroom and shower room. The first floor has 2 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. Outside this part of the house is a wonderful rose scented seating area which is ablaze with colour for much of the year.
The main house was rebuilt in the 19th century on the site of a 14th century house. The ground floor is entered via some beautiful wooden doors into an impressive entrance hall with painted beams and borders dating back to the 1930's.
On this floor we find a family/reading room with the warm decorated panel ceiling which captures the character of the house.
The dining area has a wooden inlay ceiling and decorated border. An arch leads through to the main living room which has a traditional fireplace, perfect for chilly evenings. The kitchen is hand made and spacious enough to prepare whatever Italian delight one chooses. There are doors from both kitchen and dining area to a shaded patio area for outside dining.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, one ensuite, a family bathroom and a further shower room. The theme of painted borders continue on this floor. The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality.
The owner's living accommodation is accessed via a separate entrance on the north side of the property. This area requires further cosmetic decoration but offers a large living/dining area with open fireplace and picture windows looking over the countryside, a kitchen, three double bedrooms and bathroom and small washroom. The attic space lends itself to further development.
There are a number of annexes including one which already has approved permission to convert to a further independent guest cottage which would accommodate four people. There is also a little chapel which could be converted into a studio, a cantina which houses the laundry area and fridge/freezers, a garage and further workshops.
The large terrace overlooks the pool and orchard and beyond to Lago Montedoglio and the hills. The swimming pool area is perfect for relaxing and leads down to the orchard, ideal for meditation and reading. The orchard contains a variety of fruit and nut trees.
This property, having completed its first full year of business, is a wonderful opportunity for someone with flair and entrepreneurial skills.
