Full description:

With its panoramic views of the Tuscan hills of Chianti, this charming country house for sale in San Casciano Val di Pesa is a piece of Tuscan history. It was built on the ruins of a 16th-century farmhouse, which in turn was built on the ruins of the Castello di Montecalvi that belonged to the Cavalcanti family and destroyed by the Ghibellines in 1261.
The house sits on top of a hill and overlooks the Valley of the Pesa River. Its property consists of 20 acres of land, mostly wooded with mature oak trees. There are fruit trees, bushes of rosemary, roses, lavander, and lilacs close to the house. A fresh water spring from the hill supplies all water needs. Also on the property are 85 producing olive trees. An ancient hunting/sighting tower, of two floors, which was used to store wine and oil is included as one of the outbuildings. The tower could be restructured as guesthouse or as a study.
Near the large courtyard , there are two paved terraces, each with its own view. Climbing vines under a pergola with a view across an olive grove and up the hill creates another outdoor seating area and makes a perfect place for pleasant summer dinners. The property is part of a game reserve, which is populated by wildlife such as deer, hare, porcupines, and wild boar.
The property is close to the main roads. It is only minutes away from the motorway, which takes you to the Centre of Florence in 30 minutes and Siena in 40. Chianti Classico with its wines and typical gastronomy, villages, castles, and art are easily accessible. At the bottom of the hill is the renowned Cantina Antinori.
The farmhouse is divided into two apartments, each with two floors and each with its own entryway for a total of a little more than 3,000 square feet (280 sq meters). Each apartment has its own central heating. The roof is insulated. The interior of both apartments is comprised of traditional exposed beamed ceilings and archways and tiled terra cotta floors. On the ground floor, the larger apartment consists of an entryway/ sitting room with a large fireplace. A kitchen with dining room, connected by an archway face south to let in maximum sun. In the dining room there is a large tiled wood stove,which heats both rooms. A full bath in Sicilian tiles completes the downstairs.
On the second floor there are three double bedrooms, a study perfect for use as a child's room, and full bath with strikingly handsome Tuscan ceramic tiles in blue and white.
On the ground floor of the smaller apartment, there is a large kitchen/dining room with a fireplace perfect for grilling. There is also a spacious double living room with a handmade Italian wrought iron and glass door fitted to the arch to the outside . On the second floor, there are two double bedrooms and a full bath.
The compensation paid by buyer for the mediation shall be equal to 3% of the sale price plus VAT Bill on.
