Full description:

This highly versatile house can be either a four or a five bedroom home with a garage. The 15 x 5 pool has an electric cover and an underground walk-in pump room.

The name of this house is Dolcevento which means 'sweet wind'. It describes the gentle breeze which ventilates the house even in the hottest of Summers. Its position was chosen by one of the pioneers of real estate agents in this area offering services to the overseas buyer and the man who influenced the foundation and successful running of the Italian Property Gallery. The property was described by a major British Rental Agency as their best property for three years on the trot.

The access to the property is via a largely tarmac road up to the beginning of the property. A vintage car can even make it to this property.

The property is on two floors; the ground floor comprises 2 reception rooms - one with a fireplace, an eat-in kitchen with a separate kitchenette for food preparation, a downstairs bathroom and a utility room (study, laundry, workroom etc ) and a fully finished garage with another bathroom off it making it easy for swimmers to use.

The landscaped garden provides three areas of activity; a formal Italian garden with a fountain, a patio style garden with awning and built-in barbeque for 'al fresco' dining just outside the kitchen and the pool area offering spectacular views of the Apennines.

The pool is 14.75 x 5.5m, with Roman steps, ranging in depth between 2.4 m and 1.2. It has a fully automated chlorination system which is supplemented by a further automated pH regulator and an electro-hydraulically driven cover to protect it from dirt and heat loss.

On the south-eastern side, cleverly hidden, are the solar panels and the photovoltaic cells, a laundry drying area and garden shed. Above this area is a large games lawn.

The systems within the house are of the latest specification and the photovoltaic cells even produce excess energy that produces an income for the owner.

The building was restored using all original materials and maintaining the local Tuscan architectural style. The windows are all fitted with nets and are double glazed and the original walls are over 60 cm thick, offering natural insulation from the heat/cold.

The house can be purchased with all its white goods and fitted kitchen with dishwasher, American refrigerator, washer, dryer, 5 ring hob, electric oven and microwave. The other items within the house can also be negotiated separately. The beds are all new, one of the reception rooms has new furniture and the rest of the house is furnished with antiques.

This is a fantastic house, in a wonderful location at a well-thought-out price.
