Welcome to the Tuscan countryside: enveloped by rolling hills and carefully lined by cypresses, this one-of-a-kind property sets an impressive precedent for historical luxury homes in Italy. Its extraordinary natural materials and quality finishes define this 19th century home, whose gated entry is just a taste of the marvels that lie inside.

Are you ready to step inside a fairytale home? Lines of cypresses and holm oaks wind down to the driveway, setting an idyllic background for an impressive property. Around it are 6,3 ha of land, covered in olive groves, woodland, and arable land. This is a naturally alluring home that’s one with its environment – where design and craftmanship meet the idyllic presence of the outdoors.

The Farmhouse

This magical estate welcomes you through lines of cypresses and holm oaks accompanying you to the property. Nestled in endless greenery, you spot the elegant stone facade of the main building, whose main part dates back to 1811.

However, some documents suggest that it might even be older than that, going back to the 1600’s. It was later restored in 2004, and the result is an estate that carefully blends contemporary comforts with timeless Tuscan charm.

This 410 sq.m. estate is divided into a main three-story home, flanked by an additional 150 sq.m. outbuilding.

Ground Floor:

Enter this majestic farmhouse and be greeted by a large gourmet kitchen, featuring an informal dining table and a large, raised fireplace. From there, step inside the formal dining room, showcasing a wooden table which could sit up to ten people. Next to it you find a spacious lounge area with plenty of library space for your favorite books.

All of these rooms all present the same timeless Tuscan style, with elegant, beamed ceilings, as well as a great number of French doors allowing you to step outside from every room. On this floor you also find two bathrooms and a laundry room.

First Floor:

Access this floor either via the internal staircase, or through the outdoor stairs. You’re welcomed by a lounge area showcasing the same style of the rest of the house, which leads you into the three bedrooms and three bathrooms, two of which are ensuite.

A charming walkway leads you to the master suite, which benefits from an ensuite bathroom and exceptional views of the whole property.

Second Floor:

Welcome to the ancient tower of the home, which now hosts a charming office area with adjacent bathroom. It is undoubtedly from here that you get the best vistas of the Tuscan countryside.

The Annex

A few steps from the main home you find the 150 sq.m. annex, which is composed by three rooms on the ground floor, and three more rooms with three bathrooms on the first floor. Renovations have started but they need to be completed – it could become an additional guest house for you to rent out or for your friends to stay in.

The Land

The farmhouse is set on 6,3 ha of sprawling grounds, which are covered in olive groves, woodland, and arable land. Part of the land is also employed as a large, gated park, which offers incredible views of the Tuscan countryside.

Not far from the farmhouse, some work has been initiated for the construction of a panoramic pool facing the rolling hills. All around the property you find endless ornamental plants, cypresses, and other trees, making this a true Tuscan paradise. Picture events hosted by the poolside with friends and family, or sunset drinks overlooking the landscape!

The Location

This majestic property is immersed in the lush landscapes that characterize the Chianti Senese, between the renowned hamlets of San Gusme and Rosennano. It is located at the end of a well-kept white road, which leads to an electric gate opening to a cypress-lined pathway. This allows the property to be extremely private, as it is only partially visible towards the end of the road.

This area is world-famous thanks to its charming hamlets, the rolling hills dotted by woodland, vineyards, and olive groves. The Chianti Senese represents the true soul of Tuscany, with its romantic and magical landscape – the perfect spot for those looking for tranquility and relaxation.
