The art of gracious living combined with the feeling of great history, this house has it all. Beside the fact that it is only minutes away from the historic hilltop town of Montone, the main residence has been restored around an ancient watchtower dating back to the Longobardian era.
One sweeps through the impressive gates via a tree lined driveway to be met by the principal residence and stunning surrounding land and guest accommodation. There are so many unusual and tasteful features to this property such as the ancient fountain, the superb courtyard paving from around Italy, the use of marble in the main house, the amphitheatre area around the pool, and so much more.
The main house has three floors and includes the original tower. The ground floor has an apartment which has a bedroom, lounge, small kitchen and bathroom and this apartment also has a loggia area. Also on this level the tower has a lounge/dining area, bathroom, strong room, cantina and, another unique feature of this house, a fully operational lift for all floors.
The first floor of the house has a lovely portico area which has two entrances. One of these enters into a spacious fully fitted kitchen with original fireplace, drawing room also with fireplace and up a few stairs to a large dining area. The other entrance leads into an ante room or guest reception area which has a wonderful arched window to gaze on Montone and the hills. In this area we also find a marble bathroom.
The second floor of the tower has a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with again wonderful marble, jacuzzi bath and double stone basins. There is a second bedroom on this floor.
The first guest cottage, close to the pool also has a tower and a wonderful arched loggia for outside dining and apertives. The ground floor has a kitchen adjacent to the Loggia and on the other side a changing room/shower area for the pool. The first floor has a bathroom and small bedroom and the second floor has a further bedroom with views to Montone.
Across the courtyard there is an old Granaio. On one side of this annex there is a stunning drawing room decorated in an Eastern theme with rugs and tapestries. On the first floor there is olive wood flooring and a wonderful library area. On the other side of the Granaio there is a second studio and loggia.
The surrounding gardens have a mixture of mature trees, shrubs and wonderful array of flowers. There is a large swimming pool and jacuzzi area as well as the unusual amphitheatre and the walkways around the property are a joy to behold.
This is an exceptional property.
