Description in Detail
Casa di Silvia is an original medieval tower dating back to the 12th century, situated on top of a hilltop in the picturesque Chianti countryside. This tower has had several additions and renovations up until the 1700s which now makes up an appealing vacation home with 7 individual apartments used for tourist rentals. The property is found on an elevated private Tuscan hill, composed of 21 hectares which include 3 buildings: the main Villa (used as a tourist vacation home), an old farmhouse where the current owner and his family live, a renovated annex with a small kitchen that is utilized for outdoor events, and a beautiful and well-restored stone wine vault, with the property measuring roughly 1200 m2 in total.
The property is rich with water thanks to useful irrigation springs and more importantly the well that has regular concession and allows the house to be autonomous regarding all its necessities. Surrounding valleys and hills dominate the view, as well as the house’s olive grove, which has roughly 100 organically grown plants in a terraced grove. Around 40 Bolgheri Cypress trees line the driveway.
The surrounding land offers 2 hectares of untouched farming land that can be cultivated for various uses such as a vineyard, for truffles, saffron, or even as fields for rearing horses.
