Beautiful farmhouse restored to a very high standard and situated in a panoramic position close to the towns of Panzano and Greve in Chianti.
This impressive property offers peaceful countryside living, whilst lying just 30 minutes from the renaissance capital of Florence. Situated in an elevated position, the property offers breathtaking views over the valley. A view which combines vineyards, forests, olive groves and hilltop towns.
The property is set in approx. 3 hectares of land, which is comprised of landscaped gardens, a pool area, olive groves, and a vineyard. The vines are tended to by the nearby fattoria, who in return supply bottled wine to the owners. The current owners enjoy the olive harvest as many neighbours and friends come along to help with approximately 120 litres of very good quality extra virgin olive oil produced annually.
The property was completely restored in 1997, to a very high level. The restoration followed a Tuscan rustic theme which cleverly blends high quality natural materials such as stone, cotto and woods, with state of the art utilities such as under-floor heating and air-conditioning.
The house dates back to 1680, and was a derelict barn when the current owners purchased it. The main house measures approx. 481sqm and the layout is as follows:
Ground Floor: Reception room with impressive fireplace, large formal dining room with French doors giving access to the garden, a large kitchen with an informal dining area, large open fireplace, spacious pantry, boiler and utility room, guest bathroom and a delightful wine cellar which has an impressive vaulted stone ceiling.
First Floor: A stairway leads to the first floor comprising a large master bedroom with 2 dressing rooms and a large en-suite bathroom featuring a spacious Turkish bath and shower. The master bedroom also offers access to a private studio which leads to the garden via French doors. The first floor also provides a morning lounge area with sit-in fireplace and 3 double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. There is also a laundry room on the first floor.
Tower: A stairway from the morning lounge leads to a reading gallery/mezzanine and a further bedroom with bathroom.
There is a separate barn which has been converted into a stylish one bedroom apartment, ideal perfect for guests or a nanny. It measures approx. 50sqm, and is partially restored. The layout comprises a large living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The land includes 0.94 Ha of Chianti Classico vineyard, 150 olive trees, landscaped garden with many terraced areas and mature trees and flowers. The pool has been set in an area of the garden which provides all day sunlight, and panoramic views as well as privacy. The pool measures 6m x 12m.
