Originally a grain mill, dating back to 1606, this building has been totally converted to create a beautiful home. Externally, the property still looks like something out of a fairy tale with its picturesque little arched bridge and original water flow channels. Set in a valley and surrounded by olive groves, fruit trees and woodlands, it is a very peaceful and private position. Shops and restaurants are nearby at approximately 1.5 kms, while the town of Montalcino, famous for its Brunello wine and olive oil, is just 9 kms away.
The property is reached by an unsealed driveway, leading to a parking area.
Within the grounds on a higher level, just to the rear of the house, is a private swimming pool (10 x 7m), while just off the kitchen, is a lovely covered terrace with dining area and barbecue.
Inside, the rooms are typically Tuscan in style with exposed beamed ceilings, cotto floors and either white-washed or exposed stone walls. The spacious living/dining room is divided by columns and there is a glass inset in the living room floor where the original mill flow stream can be seen. It has been furnished throughout to a high standard and amenities include a telephone/fax, satellite television, stereo CD player and wi-fi internet access. Gas central heating and firewood are included during the winter months. A baby cot is available.
Entrance from front terrace to a spacious open-plan living/dining room with fireplace. Large modern kitchen with gas hob, electric oven and dishwasher, and door leading to covered terrace with barbecue. Large pantry with fridge/freezer. Bathroom with shower. Utility room with washing machine.
