In the heat of summer there is nothing better than to sit under the cool shade of a wisteria covered porch, in a peaceful setting, looking out over a typically Tuscan landscape. This period farmhouse built in classical Sienese red brick is simply beautiful and has many appealing features including the original vaulted ceilings on the ground floor, two large interconnecting lofty reception rooms and an abundance of natural light which pours in from the many French windows and the enormous arched glass doorway which leads out from the dining area into the garden.
In the garden there is an annex (designated as limonaia, pizza oven and wood sheds) of approx. 135 mtq which could be converted. The mature garden is approx. 1200 mtq with a further 1.5 hectares of farmland with olive trees.
Built on two floors and approx. 300 mtq internally, the property consists of the following:
FIRST FLOOR - Spacious and luminous master suite with walk in wardrobe, a further 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, 3 small walk-in rooms used for storage (one of which could be used as a small study space) as well as a large kitchen/living area.
GROUND FLOOR - a huge double living room, a kitchen, a dining room, a guest bathroom, a study and various large store rooms which could be converted into living spaces.
Neighboured by another period building, equally beautiful, the property enjoys privacy, but is not isolated. The access road is excellent and leads in to a private gravelled courtyard. The property also has an alarm system.
It is a short drive (5 minutes) to the quaint town of Foiano which has all services and is famous throughout Italy for its annual Easter carnival and the extraordinary floats that are presented each year. Foiano is well positioned for enjoying innumerable Tuscan towns within a radius of 60 minutes: Lucignano 7.5 kms, Monte San Savino 12 kms, Cortona 23 kms, Montepuliciano 23 kms, Pienza 33kms, Siena 52 kms.
The surrounding landscape is that of undulating hills covered in olive trees, interspersed with vines, corn and wheat fields and the occasional splash of yellow sunflowers. A genuinely beautiful setting. A swimming pool would be permissible.
