Full description:

This charming country home is nestled in the tranquil Tuscan countryside, a scenic walk from the village of Panzano and just a short drive from the artistic centres of Florence and Siena.

The main home dates back over 400 years while the central tower, originally used to guard lands from enemy incursions, is believed to have been constructed in the Middle Ages. Sirondole was bought in the 1960's by the present family and has been permanently occupied by them ever since; it was attentively restored for twentieth century use in a way that deliberately avoided intrusive modernisation and retained everything possible of the original fabric.

A house of this period and character in which the basic work of structural rearrangement has been done, and in so unobtrusive a manner, has become a rarity these days, and the opportunity it offers for imaginative development with some basic renovation work in the personal taste of a new owner, is fabulous. The home is surrounded by 1.5 hectares of terrain, including approximately 150 productive olive trees which provide enough rich Tuscan oil for home use throughout the year as well as generous gifts for friends.

Sirondole is comprised of the main home, 387 m2 , with central tower, and outbuildings.

The house is divided into two floors. The ground floor hosts a spacious open kitchen with a central fireplace, study/bedroom, guest bathroom, bathroom, and a storage room and a cellar. The original layout of the upper floor has been retained and provides 5 bedrooms (including a spacious "dormitory" in the central tower), 2 bathrooms, plus 1 ensuite bathroom, a large central sitting area and the main living room of the house with the great beamed open fireplace. A door/window leads out of this room onto a small terrace from which a staircase in "pietra serena" leads down under the big arch on the front of the house; at the bottom is the original bread oven.

Outbuildings include a loggia against the main front of the house, a boiler room and a large barn (93m2) with lean-to garage attached.

The location, near the much sought-after village of Panzano in Chianti, is exceptional even in an area of exceptional locations. At a scenic 1,5 km walk from the village and protected by law from further development, it commands a broad view of the Tuscan countryside in which virtually nothing has been changed or added since the house was built. To sit under the mulberry tree outside the kitchen door with a glass of wine and watch the sun declining over the skyline at the Church of San Leolino, is to imbibe the very spirit of Chianti itself.
