Tuscan Country Villa and Guesthouse, Garden, Pool

Situated near the medieval town of Cetona, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, this meticulously restored country home, complete with a guesthouse and well-maintained park, is currently available for sale. The structures, spanning 386 square metres, have undergone a thorough restoration, preserving the original architectural integrity. The result is an elegant and comfortable private residence boasting a total of six bedrooms and refined living spaces. The encompassing 2.7 hectares of land features a beautifully landscaped park adorned with flowering plants and mature cypress trees, a wooded area, a small olive grove, and an unusually large swimming pool, accompanied by an outdoor Jacuzzi.

Conveniently located amenities can be found in the nearby village (3 km) and the centre of Cetona, slightly farther afield. The property’s proximity to the A1 motorway (approximately 15 km away) facilitates easy access throughout Italy. Several key artistic and cultural towns in Tuscany and Umbria, including Chiusi, Città della Pieve, and Orvieto, are reachable within half an hour, while major sites like Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, and Arezzo are within an hour’s drive.

The main house, spanning 290 square metres (3,120 sqft) and featuring four bedrooms and five bathrooms, underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2012 while retaining its rustic charm. Spread across three floors, the dwelling offers direct external access to each level, interconnected internally. The expansive open-plan ground floor includes a functional fireplace, a dining room with direct access to the outdoor porch, and a spacious double living area. The newly designed, sizable kitchen opens onto both the full-length porch and a spacious terrace for al fresco dining. The basement, accessible via a spiral staircase from the kitchen, retains its original purpose as a wine cellar and laundry room, now complemented by a full bathroom.

An impressive marble staircase leads from the living space to the first-floor sleeping area, which encompasses four bedrooms and four bathrooms (three en-suite), along with a study or potential dressing room. The original outdoor staircase provides a spectacular view, infusing the study with natural light.

The house’s renovation expertly preserved the essential elements of the original rural building while incorporating modern luxury features and finishes. The interiors, with light-coloured walls, maximize natural light through numerous windows, and many rooms are double-aspect, ensuring abundant light throughout the day. The lower level features classic terracotta tiles in the kitchen and distinctive flooring in the living areas, while the bedroom level boasts solid oak parquet and painted bright white original wooden ceiling beams.

The guesthouse, a charming stone structure directly facing the main house, spans 87 square metres (936 sqft) and offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms on a single floor. A corridor connects the bedrooms and bathrooms, maintaining privacy and independence for guests. Reflecting its former identity as a barn, the guesthouse has undergone careful renovation, preserving its natural stone and brick walls, along with roof beams and tiles. Neutral yet warm wall colours contribute to a cosy and bright ambience.

Both residences are equipped with custom security grilles on all windows, which can be fully opened, and a sophisticated alarm system operable remotely via a dedicated app. Additionally, an old well on the property has been ingeniously repurposed for storage (9 sqm – 97 sqft).

Encompassed by approximately 2.6 hectares (6.7 acres) of land, the villa is surrounded by an expansive 8,500 sqm park featuring large lawned areas, various terraces, seating areas, and Mediterranean plantings. Indigenous cypress trees and mature olive trees, some exceeding a century in age, yield a harvest of high-quality olive oil annually.

Adjacent to the villa is a splendid 15 × 6 m swimming pool, complemented by a travertine and terracotta sunbathing area. The Jacuzzi tub is situated just behind the pool, with a small orchard above it.

Accessed through an elegant automatic gate, the enclosed and fenced property offers a sweeping upper driveway leading directly to the front of the house, accommodating parking for several cars. An additional secondary lower-level driveway provides ample space for multiple cars, ideal for catering or staff needs.

The remaining land to the north of this lovely country home, approximately 1.8 hectares, comprises a wooded area, part of which has been recently pruned and felled in compliance with provincial regulations.
