Luxury Villa in Tuscany - Italy
In the very heart of Val d’Orcia, a Unesco World Heritage Site in Tuscany, you can find a truly unique mansion consisting of a 17th century noble villa of about 800 sq.m., with a charming paved courtyard that opens towards a panoramic garden of 5.000 sq.m. with a 15×7.5m swimming pool.
The property includes about 6 hectares of agricultural land, with olive grove with 1000 plants, 400 of which are in full production.
The majestic main building has a suggestive U-shape, with an internal courtyard, resembling a cloister.
The courtyard leads to the large living area, made up of several areas dedicated to different purposes: reading room, music room, living room with fireplace and ribbed vaults, kitchen, cellar, bathroom and much more.
Also on the ground floor you can access the external pizza oven and the large external pergola area, where you can eat outside in the shade.
On the first floor there are 6 large and elegant suites, 3 of which with en-suite bathroom, decorated in an antique style preserving different elements of the original structure: doors, terracotta floors, fireplace, ceilings with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. Everything has been designed to keep the period style alive while guaranteeing a stay with all comforts.
In the same building on the first floor there is an apartment currently used by the keeper as an exclusive residence with the following layout: a living room with kitchenette, two bedrooms, a study and two bathrooms.
What catches the eye is the preservation of many original materials: the terracotta floors and the staircase that connects the two floors in original period travertine are two great examples.
All systems are fully functional and independent, although they may need a technological update. The water supply is guaranteed by an exclusive property well. The energy supply is guaranteed by the national service. The heating is independent and powered by LPG. The telephone and internet connection are already up and running.
The whole property is in good condition, by the way a light refurbishment is recommended to bring it to a more contemporary standard.
The property includes outbuildings to be refurbished, excellent for further tourist-accommodation development.
The land has an extension of 6 ha of which part are cultivated with olive groves (1000 plants), part with arable land and part constitute the park of the villa on which there is a swimming pool of 15X7.5 meters, with panoramic views of the iconic rolling hills of the Val D’Orcia.
The internal courtyard, furnished with large Pienza terracotta vases, tables and chairs, the ancient well and an old functioning oven, create the atmosphere of a “small square” where you can dine or converse outdoors.
The property is located in a dominant position, on top of a hill with a 360° view over the entire Val D’Orcia. Looking out the window, the panorama at every season will seem like a different picture, made of iridescent colors.
The property is conveniently located just 4.5 km from the nearest town and is equidistant from the most fascinating towns of the Val D’Orcia: Pienza, San Quirico d’Orcia and Montalcino are all less than 15 km from the property.
The International airport of Florence is about 1 hour and a half and that’s where you can hire a car and drive down to the estate.
