Renovated late 1400s stone farmhouse with pool, cottage and garden for sale in Castellina in Chianti, Siena.
On the ancient Roman route connecting Siena to Florence, just 2 km from Castellina in Chianti with shops, restaurants and amenities, and just a short distance from famous wineries, for more than five hundred years this locality has witnessed the lives and stories of the local community: from transhumance to Christian pilgrims and to the ancient Chianti Classico farmers who settled here for its excellent climate, the natural water springs, the prairies and woods, ideal for pasturing their animals, constructing the first buildings in the late 1400s.
Over the centuries this place has been transformed into a small borgo where you can still breathe the sense of community and fellowship.
Within a private 30 hectare estate, the former farmhouses have been transformed into elegant residences all with private swimming pool and garden.
With a separate gated access and an exclusive park, the property perfectly preserves its original raw stone structure, the various buildings added over the centuries as the farm grew, create a scenic movement that makes it unique: roofs with terracotta tiles, large brick arches, porticoes, terraces, stone courtyards, terracotta vaulted ceilings in the old stables, each corner tells a story.
Meticulously renovated into a main residence and apartments to host tourists, all with separate entrances and differing in type and features, it overlooks an extremely well-kept lawn park with tall trees, flowers, and Mediterranean shrubs.
Here the swimming pool with sundeck area finds its perfect location to experience the peace and quiet of this very special place.
The former barn has also been converted into a two-bedroom cottage and overlooks a stone-paved terrace featuring a pergola, a relaxation area and stunning views of the park.
The ground floor of the farmhouse is made of an office and storage rooms that offer further potential for conversion to residential use, as does the second barn now used for outdoor dining and hobbies. With a loyal international clientele, the property is the destination chosen by tourists and travelers from all over the world who return here each year for their vacations in the heart of Tuscany.
Monteriggioni just 20 km away, and just half an hour from Siena, San Gimignano and Florence, it is ready-to-move-in and investment property with annual income, a top-buy also for private use to live with family and friends.
