Property Description

This extra ordinary country house is a beautiful, private 12-hectare (30-acre) estate tucked away in Chianti, the heart of Tuscany, between Florence and Siena, half way between Montespertoli and San Casciano, just 30 minutes away from Florence.  The ultimate in privacy and independence, both the exterior and interiors of this fine old farmhouse (casa colonica) have been immaculately restored to a very high standard by its decorator owner. Every detail of the restoration has been done with total respect for nature and for Tuscan heritage.The house is beautifully decorated throughout with terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and beamed ceilings.  The bedrooms are attractively furnished with four poster beds and enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside.  Each of the six bedrooms is adjoined by its private bathroom graciously decorated with old mirror frames and antique lamps. The upper bedrooms all have air-conditioning, combining charm and tradition with contemporary comfort.  The living areas are colourful and furnished with high-quality fabrics, antiques, fine custom linens and table ware.  The large state-of-the-art kitchen leads onto a terrace, where a large loggia (pergola) overlooking the garden and the swimming pool keeps it cool in summer and provides shade for outside dining and al fresco meals. The modern amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, washing and drying machines, satellite television, remote-controlled gate entrance, phone, fax etc .  The house is accessed by a 700 meters private road and surrounded by an extensive and well-tended garden that rolls gently downward from the house towards the swimming pool, which is situated among sloping green lawns and fruit trees.  Near the swimming pool (12 x 6 m) and around the garden and terraces, there is an abundance of outdoor furniture, teak pool furniture, wrought iron and rattan settees, benches and chairs, marble tables and sun umbrellas for shade.  The property enjoys a spectacular view of a Xth century castle and a panorama of typical Chianti countryside with rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves, cypresses and distant farmland.  The domaine comprises 350 olive trees, over 100 walnut trees, a small river delineating its southern boundaries and several hectares of forest providing delicious shade in the summer.  Living area 500sqm, a concrete stable could be converted in a separate guest house.
