The main farmhouse boasts all typical features of Tuscan farmhouses and includes elements such as exposed stone walls, chestnut beams, terracotta, arches, pillars with terracotta capitals, and open fireplaces.
The farmhouse needs to be finished internally and measures 670 sqm, arranged over 2 levels - 510 sqm farmhouse + 160 sqm porches. The layout is spacious and the views are unique.
A self-contained guest unit located in its immediate proximity measuring 50 sq.m. is ready for immediate occupation.
In the area surrounding the house is an open shed of 300 sq.m. used as a hay barn, a barn of 425 sq.m. formerly used as a stables with 5 metre high doors. Another barn of approx. 120 sq.m. used as sheep shed.
Basin for the collection of rainwater of approx. 2500 m3 with electrics and plumbing connected to the house.
The farming business in which we find the various buildings and included in the price but can be separated in case of sale, extends of approx. 24 hectares (approx. 84 acres) plus additional 10 hectares (approx. 25 acres) detached at approx. 800 mt.
The land consists of 2.7 hectares with olive grove in two separate plots, 2.63 hectares of coppice, and 2.97 hectares of wooded pasture (now woodland), and 23.66 hectares of arable land, perfect for vines.
The characteristics of the subsoil, important especially for the drainage and the mineral salts contained herein and the land with stones allowing water to flow through guarantee good ripening of the grapes, for a wine with delicate and interesting bouquet.
From the detached plot of land, which is clay-rich, wines that can be kept longer could be obtained. For over ten years already the 'DOC ORCIA' has been recognised, a fairly new qualification but, considering the characteristics of the product, destined to rapidly gain a bigger market share. The land with south-eastern exposition goes downhill to 220 mt where the river Orcia flows and thanks to this, can be irrigated for approx 6 hectares.
