This is the beloved holiday home of a Florentine family with strong American connections as well as a great appreciation for the Tuscan country side and it’s pleasures.
This beautiful villa is set in the heart of Etruscan Tuscany, immersed in verdant country side and with stunning views. It is also close to the auto strada allowing easy access to all major points of interest.
Around the villa are 20 hectares of organic vineyards and olive groves producing a very fine “Chianti dei Colli Senesi", extra vergine olive oil and various other fruit trees as well as another two hectares of woods which provide delightful nature walks.
The house is a typical Tuscan hill house, restored and added to over the years as the family grew and changed. The villa offer air conditioning. The bathrooms were last restored in 1990 and are all of good quality and condition and the kitchen was re done in 2000. It has a decidedly “Italian designer” look to it whilst still incorporating all the elements of a country kitchen including a delightful open fire place flanked by a small comfy sofa for reading by the fire.
It opens onto a pergola covered terrace for dining al fresco that looks onto a spacious outdoor area and garden. The terrace is furnished with table and chairs, a barbecue and a wood burning pizza oven. From the terrace you have wonderful views and can also see the pool.
This is a two-storey house (about 200 mq. in total): the ground floor includes a large dining and sitting room, a kitchen with dishwasher, American coffee machine, microwave and all other domestic appliances as well as an open fireplace, a store room with the washing machine, a twin bedroom, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
