Tuscan villa for sale on the lower hills of the Apennines just outside the historic city centre of Sansepolcro. Large and spacious restored 17th century 3 Bed villa which could easily make up to 6 bedrooms.
Sansepolcro Villa Property
The villa dates back to the seventeenth century and is a classic example of stately architecture. The building has a symmetrical facade with windows framed by elements in pietra serena. The door is located in the exact centre of the façade and is surmounted by a small balcony accessible from the reception hall. On the façade, in the centre of a square tile, the coat of arms of the Order of the Hospitaller Knights of St. John (more commonly known as the Knights of Malta) stands out.
Inside, efforts were made to keep the seventeenth-century layout of the villa with the respective finishes (terracotta floors, wooden beams, wooden window frames) wherever possible. One of the most interesting details is the stone fireplace in the living room, original and made from a single block of stone.
The villa was structurally consolidated in the seventies and in the nineties, the plumbing and heating system was refurbished.
This Tuscan villa for sale has a surface area of 425 sqm over three floors comprising:
– Basement: historic cellar with masonry vault;
