Full description:

This truly unique and fascinating 3 bedroom 2 bathroom property has been obtained by means of a careful and yet original renovation of the central nave of the Church called "Romitorio di San Francesco" dating to the early 1300's.

This church was part of a small farming hamlet just a short distance from the centre of Castelnuovo Berardenga. In fact all services in town are within reach on foot. Siena is only 20 minutes away.

The property is located in the beautiful Chianti countryside, and on the famous route of "La Eroica", the historical bicycle rally.

The property is accessed through a private gate, within the hamlet, that opens onto the exclusive garden of approximately 150 sqm. Entrance into the 300 sqm house is through a beautiful arched French window that opens onto the open plan living space composed of a sitting room, dining room, open staircase to second floor and kitchen. Beyond the fully equipped and modern kitchen, there is the 3rd bedroom with a full bathroom. This bedroom shows the original front façade of the ancient Church, with 2 windows (now open niches) beautiful stone and the original arched panel above the church door which would have displayed a fresco dedicated to Saint Francis.
The floors are in a very original resin that give this property a contemporary feel.

Up the open staircase in wrought iron and hard wood treads, one reaches the grand living room with beautiful beams on ceilings and 2 wood trusses, a French window that opens to the landing of the outdoor staircase where one can admire a breathtaking view of the Sienese countryside. This living room also has a double facing fireplace. Skylight over the staircase gives this room even more charm and light. Form here one can access the master bedroom with overlook onto the staircase, a full bathroom with shower and bath tub that also has a skylight so one can admire the stars while in the bath. The second bedroom, spacious and bright and a storage room are also on this floor. The entire second floor is in hardwood.

There is underfloor heating throughout and towel heaters in the bathrooms.

Outdoors there is a convenient storage area under the external staircase and a wisteria pergola with a sink ideal in all seasons as an outdoor retreat.

The garden has various light posts and a tall hedge to ensure privacy from the other properties of this ancient hamlet.

One parking space is allocated to this property just a few steps from the entry gate.

About Property Hunt Italia, Mantignana

There are many ways to search for the perfect Italian property: My way is different.

In my years devoted to foreign clients and Italian properties I have learned a few secrets which I’d like to share.

First and foremost, some properties appeal to certain people while other clients are completely taken by something very different. On the other hand, there is a type of property that is universally appreciated, whose intrinsic value is immediately grasped regardless of origin or background.

Clients have varying expectations of their Italian house hunt and this fact is closely related to time: How many trips will it take to find the ideal property? How long will take to get it right? Listings are based primarily on TIMING.

In light of the foregoing I have personally and carefully selected only properties that are SPECIAL because of their matchless location, exceptional architecture or rare history. They are listed in the following categories:

- “Practically Perfect” encompasses fully restored homes ready to move into and enjoy from Day 1.

- “Revamp” reflects homes that will require some updating or minor work
- “Phoenix Projects” are amazing properties that deserve to be “brought back from the ashes”. They are complete renovations waiting to retell their centuries old tales.

Italy offers so much in terms of special properties reflective of its highly sought after lifestyle and timeless beauty; make certain your house hunt truly makes the most of the best on offer. Make sure your new home embodies the best of Italy.
