Welcome home in this masterpiece of eco-friendly architecture in the most beautiful enclave of the Italian countryside – Tuscany. This showpiece of unbridled luxury was carefully created in 2007 from an ancient Tuscan farmhouse, whose construction materials such as bricks and stones were repurposed in the renovation.
The result is the pinnacle of sustainable living: solar panels, insulated roof, rainwater cistern, and carefully chosen fixtures to ensure top-notch thermal insulation. Thoughtfully designed to harmoniously blend with its surroundings, this unique structure adds sleek contemporary touches to a timeless estate, without detracting from the natural environment.
The Country Home
Capturing breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside, this impressive property is set to deliver one of the most remarkable homes in the area. Built in 2007 from a careful renovation of an ancient farmhouse, it now offers 392 sq.m. of comfortable accommodation over four floors.
The careful renovations created a home that satisfies the highest sustainability standards, with solar panels, an insulated roof and great thermal insulation thanks to the best fixtures. The home is also appointed with underfloor heating that uses olive nuts as fuel, as well as a cistern for rainwater recovery.
Step inside this architectural marvel and behold the beauty of the entrance, which leads you to a large lounge area with a raised stone fireplace. This is the great spot for a taverna style living area, thanks to its rustic Tuscan style featuring classic beamed ceiling, cotto floors and stone accent details in the arches.
On this floor you also find a laundry room, a technical room, and a bathroom.
This floor is accessible both through an internal wooden staircase or from the outside. Here you find a spacious kitchen flanked by an informal dining area, which also provides access to the panoramic paved loggia.
On the left, a stone arch leads you into the lounge area, comfortable and bright thanks to the double French doors leading you into the garden. On this floor you also find a bathroom.
Going upstairs you enter the nighttime area of this home, featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The style is coherent with the rest of the house, with wooden floors and panoramic views of the property from every room.
This floor hosts a third bedroom and its ensuite bathroom – from here you get the best vistas of the entire estate.
Next to the main home you find a 100 sq.m. outbuilding which needs renovation. It can become a comfortable guest house for your friends to come over and enjoy the Tuscan countryside with you, or an additional rental property.
This home sits on 1.2 ha of panoramic land, featuring a manicured garden filled with trees and ornamental plants, as well as about 240 olive trees. This means that you can start producing you very own organic olive oil – after all, what’s more sustainable than homegrown foods?
Scattered around the lush garden you find several patios for al fresco dining, a treehouse, and an amazing panoramic stone porch. This is a home that cherishes and provides true outdoor living at its finest, great for children and pets.
The farmhouse is sited on an easily accessible location near Civitella in Val di Chiana, and the nearest town with services is less than 1 km away. Here you will be able to find all comforts such as stores, pharmacies, and schools. The Arezzo area is characterized by its tranquility and quiet nature, but all the key Tuscan towns are less than an hour’s drive away.
This means that you have the freedom to choose to relax in the privacy of your estate, or take day trips exploring the countryside, enjoying great food and wine, and strolling around some of the most beautiful towns in the world. The location is also great if you want to rent the property, as it’s close to the more touristy areas but still in a quiet and relaxing spot.
