This amazing farmhouse will take your breath away. Placed in the countryside of Pienza , on top of a hill with a 360-degree view over the hills of Val d’Orcia, it is fully restored respecting the Tuscan traditions of style and local materials and surrounded by quiet and silent nature only.
The property occupies a perfect secluded location in the Tuscan countryside with the added benefit of convenient proximity to Pienza with its numerous cultural sites and unforgettable architecture. The very heart of Pienza is just 6 km away, but also the other iconic places of Val d’Orcia are all at your fingertips, as San Quirico d’Orcia, Montalcino and many others.
The House is in excellent conditions, tastefully refurbished and currently divided into 2 separate apartments, with independent access, but it could also be brought back to one single villa. The first house is characterized by an explosion of colors, each one typifying a specific room. The total area of the house is about 255sqm spread on two floors.
The ground floor features several French windows, thus guaranteeing maximum natural light all day and they will let you access the house both from the living room and the kitchen. The majestic double living room with arch, will impress you. The flooring, the stone fireplace and the original wood beams will give you the feeling of real authenticity. From the living room, you have direct exit to the external paved area, where you can enjoy a drink or have dinner looking at the “painting” of Val d’Orcia stuck in front of you. The kitchen is refurbished in a rustic style, with precious details as the marble basin and the ceramics on the walls, that give a touch of color and light to the severe style of the room. Still on the same floor, there are a studio, a guest bathroom and a lovely double bedroom, with step-in closet and a “magic” bathroom, that will lead you directly to the covered area of the 24x4 meter swimming pool.
On the first floor, there are two spacious master bedrooms, characterized by a warm wood flooring and colors on the walls. The red bedroom enjoys an amazing yellow bathroom with double basin and precious ceramics, but the best part is the elevated bathtub with Jacuzzi. The other bedroom features lighter colors, still with the same cozy and warm elements of wood and ceramics. From all the rooms, you can enjoy beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
The other house is similar but different. The element that mostly characterized the second apartment is wood, which dominates each room, in terms of flooring, original beams, and classy details that you can discover as you step into the rooms. Also this house enjoys a number of French windows, to let the sun get in and shine in every room. The total area of the house is 255 square meters spread on two floors.
The ground floor comprises a spacious kitchen spacious with old wood beams that spread around a scent of antique. All the elements are traditional and let you imagine how people in the past bustled about cooking for their big families. From the kitchen, via a few steps, you access the first living room, which could be also used as the official dining room when you have guests. Here you can admire a big, old fireplace, probably used in the past not only to warm up the house, but also to cook their meals. The double living room is accessible both from the living/dining area and from 2 French windows; from here, you can access the guest bathroom and also the lovely bedroom, placed on a mezzanine, that kids will love for sure and will use as their play room.
On the first floor, two spacious double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms are placed; one enjoys a step-in closet. The en-suite bedrooms make life equally comfortable for guests and family. As you step into each bedroom, you can feel the same atmosphere of noble landowners, thanks to the care for details and all the classy features that the current owners have chosen to make the property look so precious. The house enjoys all modern comforts and what is important to notice is that all the connections to the systems are placed far from the house, including the air-con machines, so that the house, the pool area and the garden in general are completely silent.
The property enjoys a big annex of about 245 square meters. Divided into two big rooms, that could be used as a garage and storage for the gardening tools. On the other hand, it could be also used as spacious, silent rooms to practice Yoga. The best part of this annex is that it is underground and the entrance faces the opposite side of the house, so you can hardly notice it. The small white road for cars leading to the garage, is distant from the house, thus guaranteeing further silence.
The property sits on a 1,8 hectares land and up to 5/6 hectares of additional land could be bought. It is all agricultural ground, meaning that no one will ever build around the property, which will stay forever free from any modern building. The extension of the land, will let you enjoy full privacy. Other houses can be seen only from a distance. Taking care of the garden is not difficult, since it is all grass around, meaning that no great work is required to keep all in good order. The garden enjoys an amazing 24×4 swimming pool, partly ending into the house: Just imagine having a swim in the internal area, when it’s cold outside and looking at the beautiful panorama in front of you. On the other hand, enjoying the external area of the pool will be a pleasure, too, since it is placed in a very private area, overlooking the Val d’Orcia sweet, rolling hills.
Thanks to the location, the renovation and the structure of the house itself, this property has great potential for accommodation. It could be used as a holiday home and rented weekly with excellent profitability.
