Condition and finishes
The total renovation was carried out about ten years ago and was done with great attention to detail, in order not to change too much the style of the property and to fit well in the context of the countryside, with some concessions to modernity which blend in well with the rustic style, so as to make the final effect fresh and pleasant.
The property includes 10 hectares of land, and the closest part to the house is fenced. On the property there are 500 olive trees which produce a tasty Tuscan oil. A pleasant covered veranda connected to the house allows you to enjoy the panorama sheltered from the sun during the hot summer days. In the courtyard in front of the house there are two annexes, the old oven, although to be partially restored, and the old barn, where it would be possible to create for example a gym with sauna.
It is the perfect solution for those who want a house which is not isolated, a short distance from a village for basic necessities, surrounded by nature.
