Description in Detail
Romantic sunsets over the hills, the peace and tranquility of the surrounding unspoilt rural landscape, and all of this in proximity to the main roads connecting Florence and Siena as well as a nearby village. These coveted features make Antico Casolare Tuscan Sunset a unique property that will steal your heart and make you feel right at home.
A charming tree-lined driveway with a private entrance gate leads to the house. The property, originally a monastery dating back to the 1400s, consists of a single building of about 850 square meters, divided into three units: the main house of about 500 square meters, an apartment with separate entrance of about 200 square meters, and an area used as a cellar and warehouse of about 150 square meters.
The Main House is distributed onto two levels. From the outdoor courtyard, through a French window on the right we enter a large living room with monumental fireplace; continuing through brick arches we find the large kitchen with direct access to the back garden sheltered by a quaint patio, ideal for outdoor dining in the warm weather and fresh air. Also, on this floor we find a large room with full bathroom, currently used as a closet room but could be converted into a bedroom.
A practical stone staircase leads to the first floor, which also has an independent entrance via an external staircase. From the central hallway, separated by a door we find a sleeping area on the left consisting of 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; on the right is the living area consisting of an airy living room, study, and attic from which additional rooms could be obtained as needed.
All the rooms on the upper floor are very spacious, comfortable, and luminous due to the numerous windows that offer stunning views of the picturesque countryside, especially at sunset.
Entering back onto the outdoor courtyard, on the left side we find access to the newly renovated apartment also distributed on two levels: we have the living room-kitchen with access to the back patio and bathroom on the ground floor, and two rooms with en suite bathroom upstairs.
From the kitchen, there is potential to open a connecting door to the closet room in the main house, thus reconnecting the two units.
Along the side of the building, we find the cellar and storage area which, with the apartment, were added to the original core during the 19th century.
In the garden, there is also a beautiful brick oven and a lovely circular-shaped gazebo.
The property is rounded by about one hectare of fenced green where there is the potential to build a beautiful swimming pool.
There is also an additional 10ha of land, partly forest and partly olive grove with about 300 olive trees.
The property is in good condition, with the main house in need of only some updating.
If you are looking for a comfortable house with an authentic flavor, Antico Casolare is the ideal choice as a primary and secondary residence. The perfect place to take refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city and to appreciate the joys of the countryside without giving up the convenience of the municipal amenities nearby.
