Tuscan farmhouse with guesthouse, annexe, garden and swimming pool
A lovely property located midway between Cortona and Montepulciano and not far from a town offering all the necessary services (2km; 5’), ideal for home and income. Surrounded by vineyards growing the world-famous Nobile di Montepulciano the property is a short drive from most of the major centres of art and history.
The main farmhouse (404 sqm – 4,347 sqft) is split into two independent apartments, one of which is currently is used as owners accommodation while the other is used for holiday rentals providing a useful income.
– Apartment N°1
– Ground floor: entrance hall, kitchen/living room with fireplace, bedroom with en-suite bathroom;
– First floor: living room with fireplace, two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
– Apartment N°2
– Ground floor: entrance hall, kitchen, living room with fireplace, powder room and bedroom with en-suite bathroom;
– First floor: living room with fireplace, studio with fireplace (convertible into a bedroom) and bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
A guest house (56 sqm – 602 sqft) is located not far from the main house and includes a kitchen/living room with a pizza oven, double bedroom and bathroom with shower.
Finally, a small annexe (34 sqm – 366 sqft) is located right next to the pool and includes a laundry room and a storage room with separate entrances.
The farmhouse is a classic example of a rustic Tuscan countryside house: a masonry building with stone elements enclosing extremely fine interiors and retaining all the original features. Here we can find terracotta flooring on the ground floor, wooden boards flooring on the first floors, marble flooring in all the bathrooms, finely restored wooden beams, stone fireplaces and brick arches still visible amidst the plastered walls.
Surrounded by approximately 4,950 sqm of land (1.2 acres), partly used as a garden (which is well maintained and dotted with flowers and trees) and partly as a small olive grove. Right in front of the farmhouse is located a gravelled square, with an old olive tree in the centre. Crossing the square from the farmhouse one can reach the 12 x 4 m swimming pool which is surrounded by brick-built garden walls. The main farmhouse has a surrounding large terrace, very convenient for outdoor relaxation.
The entrance to the property is through an iron gate with intercom and a beautiful cypress-lined gravelled avenue linking the property directly with the municipal road network, thus granting very easy and convenient access.
If desired, the main farmhouse could be easily adapted back into a single residence by opening connecting walls on the ground and first floors.
