Tuscany - about 8 km from the historic center of Sarteano (SI)
The property for sale is located in a strategic point of the area: 12 km from the A1 highway (exit Chiusi-Chianciano Terme), exactly a halfway between Florence and Rome, at the same time, being easily reached by train as the railway station of Chiusi is in the vicinity. From here, you can get to the important historical and gastronomic sites like San Casciano dei Bagni, Hotel and Spa complex included among the Leading Small Hotels in the World and The Great Spa Hotels in the World; Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, Orvieto and Perugia. The nearest airports are: Leonardo da Vinci in Rome Fiumicino, Peretola in Florence and Sant'Egidio in Perugia.
The property boasts an awe-inspiring location being surrounded by timeless nature and beautiful natural park of Monte Cetona. The house stands on a particular rock outcrop and is benefited by a natural "window" that opens on the underlying expanse of Val d'Orcia and allows enjoying a magnificent west-facing panoramic view, especially in the evenings when you can admire incredible sunsets of intense colour shades tingeing the sky and valley itself.

PODERE "Il Sasso" consists of a traditional two-level country house, composed as follows:
G.F. (196 sqm) - The main entrance is placed on the west side of the building and leads to a large room with an ancient rock that, at the time of construction, was incorporated inside the farmhouse. This original element that gave its name to the property, is supposed to be "unique" in its kind. The living area consists of 3 large rooms including a billiards room, a large dining room and a lounge with old fireplace. The kitchen is also elegant; here we can find bespoke furnishings, a characteristic braciere / fireplace and a wood stove. On the same level, there is a half-bath and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
1st FLOOR (159 sqm) - The first floor is accessible via a beautiful internal and ancient external staircase flanked to the east façade of the structure. On this level, there are 5 large bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom, a sitting room with fireplace and wooden loft which was installed thanks to the generous interior volume. One of the bedrooms above enjoys a private outdoor space represented by a delightful covered panoramic terrace, located at the roof level.

The house is surrounded by beautiful paved courtyards and green areas, perfect for outdoor dining and entertainment during the warmer periods of the year.
In front of the farmhouse, on the lower level, there is delicious two-floor dependence (88 sqm). Its ground floor is presented by a nice living room with stone kitchenette and a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, at the basement level, there is a living room, WC and a double bedroom. Just next to the dependence, there is a small tool shed / utility room (7 sqm) and a large underground tank for the collection of water from the private well.
In the isolated place, there is a 6,30 x 12,00 swimming pool with depth varying from 1.20 m to 1.60 m, with technical room and special equipment. In the same area, we can find a wide paved area with pergola, also completed with facilities and wood-burning oven / barbecue.
The property also includes an agricultural ANNEX currently used as a tool shed, for additional 100 square meters.
Private agricultural land covers 16.02,22 ha in total and consists mainly of woodland, arable land and pastures surrounding the buildings plus green areas embracing the property (completed with lighting and irrigation system) and the pool area. The main entrance to the property lies via paved driveway that leads up to a small parking place on the back side of the house. The green areas around the buildings are very seductive being composed of aromatic and ornamental plants, fruit trees such as cherry, fig, apple and plum.

State of repair:
The property is currently in optimal state of repair, having been subject to skilful restoration / reconstruction that took place in 2005. Today, it is presented in optimal living conditions being also inserted to the international tourist rental circuits and for this reason it has been exemplary maintained for the last ten years.
Structurally, the buildings (FARMHOUSE + DEPENDANCE) are characterized by stone exposed perimeter walls, partially redone and plastered with special mortar that gives antique effect, perfectly combining with facades in exposed natural stone. The roof was completely reconstructed, equipped with thermal insulation and waterproof system and recovered with classic Roman tiles.
Internally, there are characteristic ceilings with beautiful chestnut beams and terracotta tiles. On the first floor, the ceilings are the same but "a capanna" shaped which makes the interior volume of the bedroom more spacious and pleasantly "moving". The major part of the internal walls is plastered and painted in warm colours. The floors of the farmhouse are characterized by typical Tuscan handmade terracotta, while the fixtures are made of wood (wooden interior doors, wooden window frames with thermal glass, internal shutters and mosquito nets), terracotta thresholds.

All essential amenities are within 10 minutes by car, at the center of Sarteano.
