ITALY, TUSCANY, SIENA, MONTEFOLLONICO
Real estate portion of a beautiful prestigious building complex in the historical center of the delicious and ancient village of Montefollonico, originally an integral part of the Castle, a few steps from the “Chiesa del Triano”.
It is characterized by the former barn (a unique and large open space), by the panoramic view that can be enjoyed from the windows that allow a wonderful view of the Val d’Orcia, the ancient and charming cellars and for the unusual internal garden where there is an ancient tower with access to the garden. From here the view sweeps over the surrounding countryside and Montepulciano.
Montefollonico is a village of medieval origin within the Municipality of Torrita di Siena. There are the main services, excellent restaurants and prestigious resorts and it is only 5 km from Montepulciano, Pienza and Torrita di Siena.
Places of interest such as Cortona, Rapolano Terme and San Quirico d’Orcia are within a radius of 30 Km. The provincial capital, Siena, is about 65 km away. The nearest airport, Perugia, is only 75 km, whilst Rome is about 1.5 hours by car.
Description of Buildings
The property is currently divided into three units: the first two placed on the first level and the first consisting of an old barn of about 200 square meters, with a traditional Tuscan Tuscany, supported by a series of masonry arches with stone columns; while the second consists of an apartment of about 100 square meters.
At the level below we find the third unit, consisting of four ancient and characteristic cellars of about 250 square meters with windows overlooking the Val d’Orcia.
All the rooms retain intact the original features of the era of construction: the ancient cotto tile floors, the ceilings in beams and bricks, the ancient columns, some fixtures, the arches. A skilful renovation will bring to light the ancient splendor of these original and special spaces.
The property includes a small garden courtyard, with an oak wood which leads to the entrance of the terrace of the ancient “castellane” walls dating back to 1270, from which you can see a breathtaking view of the Valdichiana and Val D’Orcia.
This property, which can not be identified either as an apartment or a farmhouse, lends itself to multiple uses: the barn can become a beautiful and unique open plan space with high ceilings; the apartment of 100 square meters can be transformed into the sleeping area and can accommodate up to 4 bedrooms with bathrooms and wardrobe areas; the ancient cellars, if connected with the upper floor, can be transformed into a hobby area, a tavern, and rooms serving the upper floor.
It could also be used partly as a dwelling and partly as an workshop or art studio, an area for painting or exhibiting works of art. This and much more.
