Restored Chianti Farmhouse with Infinity Pool
Restored Chianti Farmhouse with Infinity Pool. Nestled in the hills of the most sought after and coveted area of Chianti, this farmhouse is in the municipality of Gaiole in Chianti, close to the most famous castles such as Brolio, Meleto and the Rocca di Castagnoli.
The magnificent farmhouse which is spread over two levels and includes annexes, swimming pool and land, is situated at an altitude of 390 metres above sea level.
The property underwent careful and fine restoration between 2010 and 2012 by the owners, an architect and his wife who, with great passion and competence, brought it back to life, transforming it into a wonderful home.
The 300 sqm property is accessed via 1km of white road where you are greeted by a gate embraced by a beautiful climbing Clair Matin rose.
Externally there is a large courtyard mostly paved with a large pergola covered with strawberry grapes and roses, ideal for breakfasts and relaxing summer dinners.
There is a greenhouse obtained from an ancient pigsty, whose roof partly houses 4 solar panels which contribute substantially to the heating of the water in the bathrooms in the summer.
The restoration was characterised by great judgement and respect and in fact the stones and all the original materials have been preserved and enhanced.
In 2010, the roof of the entire building was completely rebuilt, adequately insulated, and built in compliance with anti-seismic regulations.
