ITALY, TUSCANY, SIENA, CHIANTI
Delightful stone farmhouse of about 440 sqm with ancient watchtower dating back to the 15th century, 2500 sqm garden with olive grove and panoramic terrace with incredible views of the Sienese hills, in the heart of Chianti.
The farmhouse of 440 sqm consists of the ancient medieval watchtower, two other units built later in the 19th century and the cellar. Divided into three levels including the tower, it is currently in need of renovation and consists of two communicating apartments with independent entrances on the east and west sides respectively, thanks to which it can be easily divided into two separate units.
Entering on the ground floor is the kitchen, the double living room with original stone arches – very bright thanks to the large windows – in addition to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Going up the stairs you reach the second floor hosting the sleeping area consisting of a living room with a small balcony with panoramic views, a large hallway, a bedroom and a bathroom.
A further staircase leads to the third floor of the tower which hosts the dovecote with the possibility of using it as a sitting room or bedroom.
Completing the interior spaces is the cellar with wooden door currently used as a storage room but can be transformed into a cozy cellar dining/games room or garage.
The farmhouse is immersed in the greenery of the wonderful Tuscan hills and enjoys great privacy thanks to the peace of surrounding nature. The private garden of about 2500 square meters hosts olive and fruit trees and the panoramic terrace is perfect to spend relaxing and convivial moments for outdoor lunches and dinners.
