Full description:

The name of this house is Dolcevento which means 'sweet wind'. It describes the gentle breeze which ventilates the house even in the hottest of Summers. Its position was chosen by one of the pioneers of real estate agents in this area offering services to the overseas buyer and the man who influenced the foundation and successful running of the Italian Property Gallery.

Not only this, but this property was described by a major British Rental Agency as their best property for three years on the trot.

The access to the property is via a largely tarmac road up to the beginning of the property. A vintage car can even make it to this property. Only the driveway would be considered a gravel road.

The property is only on two floors which is a great advantage; the ground floor comprises 2 reception rooms, one with a fireplace, an arch into the eat-in kitchen with its separate kitchenette for food preparation, a downstairs bathroom off one of the reception areas and a utility room (study, laundry, workroom etc ) which leads directly into the fully finished garage. The garage even has another bathroom off it making is easy for swimmers to use.

Up the stone stairs, there are three en-suite bedrooms. It would be possible to convert this property into a five bedroom house by making one of the reception rooms into an en-suite bedroom as well as the garage into an en-suite bedroom.

The building was restored using all original materials and maintaining the local Tuscan architectural style. The windows are all fitted with nets and are double glazed. The original walls are over 60 cm thick and offer natural insulation from the heat/cold.

The garden was landscaped and provide three areas of activity; a formal Italian garden with a fountain, a patio style garden with awning and built-in barbeque for 'al fresco' dining just outside the kitchen and the pool area offering spectacular views of the Apennines. There is also a large games lawn above the house.

The pool is 14.75 x 5.5m, with Roman steps, ranging in depth between 2.4 m and 1.2 m. The pool was created for easy maintenance with a fully automated chlorination system which is supplemented by a further automated pH regulator. The pool has an electro-hydraulically driven cover to protect it from dirt and heat loss.

On the south-eastern side, cleverly hidden, are the solar panels and the photovoltaic cells, a laundry drying area and garden shed. Above this area is a large games lawn.

The systems within the house are of the latest specification and the photovoltaic cells even produce excess energy that produces an income for the owner. The garden is lit as is the pool.

The solar panels produce hot water for 6 months of the year and there is an efficient boiler for the winter. The water in this area is excellent for drinking and has good water pressure.

The house can be purchased with all its white goods and fitted kitchen with dishwasher, American refrigerator, washer, dryer, 5 ring hob, electric oven and microwave. The other items within the house can also be negotiated separately. The beds are all new, one of the reception rooms has new furniture. The rest of the house is furnished with antiques.

This is a fantastic house, in a wonderful location at a well-thought-out price!
