On a hilltop with fabulous 360° views out over the surrounding countryside this villa is within an exquisitely designed and beautifully maintained residential complex with landscaped grounds, mature olive trees and a stunning swimming pool of 8 x 20 meters.
The residence is accessed by an impressive cyprus-lined driveway, automatic gates suspended on beautifully crafted stone columns and graveled driveways. On entering the grounds one is immediately transfixed by the elegant layout and the stunning views from every angle.
There are 5 large historical ex-farmhouses on the estate, some privately owned and others divided into smaller units. This particular property, of 300 sqmts, stands alone in a private garden of just under one acre. A private pool of 10 x 5 metres would be permitted. The whole property has been restored to perfection with only the highest quality reclaimed materials used and all of them in keeping with the traditional Tuscan style.
On the ground floor there is an entrance hallway, living room, dining room, kitchen leading out onto a covered porch (with spectacular view out over the rolling hills of the Val di Chiana and towards the town of Foiano), a study with a bathroom, and a laundry room with a small guest bathroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one with a dressing room, all with ensuite bathrooms. The property has air conditioning installed and a large basement and private garage. An extension of approximately 20 sqmts would be allowed on the ground floor.
The developer who orchestrated the restoration of the complex is a ‘maestro’ in his own right and has a solid reputation in the area for having constructed two other equally beautiful developments which are all excellently and competently managed. The obvious advantage to buying a home within a residential complex is the knowledge that the property is secure and looked after in one’s absence. More interestingly perhaps is the social aspect which has provided an immediate sense of belonging to a community for many of the current owners.
