Chianti Hills – Large farmhouse with guesthouse
Ideally located as both a home and as tourist accommodation this large versatile property can be used in several different ways. Presently used as holiday accommodation the property can be used as a large private home and using the independent apartment and the guesthouse for friends and family or for paying holiday guests.
The farmhouse was finely restored between 2000 and 2002 keeping and enhancing all the traditional features intact such as stone walls, wooden beams, original terracotta floors and stone fireplaces.
The traditional look doesn’t mean that modern comforts and amenities are missing: a 7-kW photovoltaic system (installed in May 2008) produces 9,000 kWh of electric power each year, covering up to 80% of the farmhouse energy needs. Another solar system is used to produce hot water for showers and heating. There is also a gas system connected with three underground tanks (1,600 litres each for a total of 4,800 litres of fuel) which can integrate with the solar system functions. The independent apartment on the ground floor and the guesthouse are fitted with independent gas heating.
Water supply is given by a natural spring, which provides excellent-quality water. A 90-m well with 40,000-litre cistern is used for irrigation.
The buildings are also fitted with satellite TV, telephone switchboard, Wi-Fi internet connection and alarmed cabinets.
A perfect blend of the old with the new.
