Changing your life, finding new friends and moving house are difficult decisions for you and your family, but everything becomes more natural as soon as you lay your eyes on this splendid property. It is in a small borgo surrounded by the Tuscan hinterland a short distance from Barberino Val D’Elsa.
Skillfully restored by the architect/owner of the property that is composed of two floors and is split into 3 apartments in addition to the main house for a total 455 sq.m.
Its strategic position inside the borgo apart from being very safe for you and your family and friends, you become part of a small community made up of a few families where above all children can learn about Italian hospitality and Tuscan conviviality.
The Main House
After having parked in the paved courtyard in front of the property, we go through the main glazed door to enter the day area of the main house characterised by an enormous double-height open space, culminating in a beamed ceiling supported by a majestic central truss. The careful attention to detail, the choice of valuable materials such as the palladian floor made of travertine and onyx which are enhanced by the natural light which brightens up and warms the atmosphere of the dining and reading area and the sitting room.
To make the atmosphere more convivial there is a large minimal fireplace incorporated into the wall library of the room where there is a starcaise leading to the floor downstairs, where there is an all-purpose space, a very big study with many windows and loundry and a toilet.
In addition to the natural light, the continuity with external spaces is an important feature of the restoration project that took place in 2008.
From the dining area there is a French window leading out to the terrace, where you can eat out by candlelight under the Tuscan starry sky. Via a corridor we pass from the living area to the sleeping area, where we are surrounded by a different atmosphere with wood floorings, except for the master bedroom where the original cotto tiles have been preserved, and the ceiling features white painted wood beams.
This area develops on several levels: on the first level, a step higher than the living room, you can find a bedroom, the main bathroom made precious by Bisazza mosaics, and a storage. Walking up two steps you can find the master bedroom and another bathroom.
The house features an underfloor heating for the living area and radiators in the bedrooms and bathrooms working with gpl system. In addition to the heating system and the fireplace, a pellet stove has been placed in the living room, to be used if necessary. The ventilation and insulation of the roof, together with antihumidity plaster make all the rooms healthy, transpiring and perfect for a numerous family.
In addition to the main house there are 3 more apartments, all enjoying indipendent entrance from the courtyard: 2 of them are placed on the ground floor and they both feature an open-plan kitchen/living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The third apartment is placed on the first floor and, compared to the other apartments, it enjoys an additional double bedroom. The finishes of the 3 apartments are similar: cotto florings, wood beams painted white, bright and luminous rooms ready to be rented out to get a good income.
If necessary it is possible to open doors and join the two apartments to the main house to get more bedrooms and bathrooms.
What makes this house unique is having 1260 sq.m. private garden although you are in a small Borgo. This way, in addition to the common paved courtyard and the 2 terraces (accessible from the living area) you will have the privilege to enjoy a private garden where you can raise your children lightheartedly.
