The farmhouse is part of an estate consisting of a barn conversion guesthouse, pool area, gardens, courtyard and approximately 60 hectares of land, some of which are olive groves.
The property was restored in the late 1990's in archetypal Tuscan style using natural materials complementary to the landscape in which it is set, offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms, spacious sitting room, and kitchen.
Plenty of natural light thanks to the many french windows giving access to the courtyard and terraces that surround the property.
Although considered a farmhouse this property is actually more than this. Upon closer inspection it becomes evident that this property possesses a lot more detailed character than the standard farmhouses found in the area. The detailed stone pediments set around the windows and the use of both arches and rectangular windows are testament to the property probably being built for someone more important than the average contadino / farmworker. The property is accessed via a charming courtyard bordered by the main house, the guesthouse, store-room and stone forno (bread oven), a fig tree dominates the centre of the courtyard. The reception room in the main farmhouse can be accessed either via the internal staircase, or the external stone stairway which adds further character and charm to the facade of the property.
The ground floor of the main house consists of an equipped kitchen, sitting room with access to both the swimming pool area and the rear courtyard, a bedroom, bathroom, and storage. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms - the master suite, two single bedrooms and a further bathroom. These first floor bedrooms sit either side of a spacious sitting room which divides the space between the master and the guest rooms.
Guesthouse Barn Conversion
The barn consists of 3 separate spaces each of which are divided by high and wide stone arches. There is also a mezzanine area accessed from the kitchen area, which could easily be used as a sleeping area or study. There are two bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms.
Gardens & Grounds
The south facing swimming pool is positioned to the rear of the main farmhouse in an area offering panoramic views over the valley and nearby villages. There are some nicely planted areas surrounding the pool, however the current owners have chosen to leave landscaping to a minimum so as not to disturb the beautiful natural habitat surrounding the property. The total amount of land belonging to the estate amounts to approximately 60 hectares.
The property is set in the hills which surround San Gimignano, in the province of Siena. San Gimignano is a protected UNESCO world heritage town due to its beauty and unique architecture. The town offers supermarkets, banks, shops and an abundance of restaurants as well as any other services or amnesties one may need. For town attracts many tourists especially during the summer, which make all of the properties in the area good investment opportunities thanks to the rental potential. The fabulous views and tranquil location which are not found easily, mean the property does sit in an isolated area accessed via a white road through the forest. The location is perfect for nature lovers (deer and wild boar are frequently spotted) and those who seek peace, quiet and untouched Tuscan beauty.
