This impeccably restored country home, located in Pienza, and ten minutes from Montepulciano, offers an exceptional panoramic view of the entire Val d’Orcia, designated as a World Heritage Site by unesco for its unspoiled natural beauty.
The property includes a three-story house, separated from a one-story house by a large, gated brick courtyard. Both structures, including one at the rear of the house that encloses a two-car garage, and a large room suitable for an interior swimming pool with full view of the outdoors, were renovated in the 90’s, using antique terra-cotta tiles, open beamed ceilings, and local stone. Multiple windows supply a light-filled ambience and vistas that seem like paintings. The 11,000 sq. Meters of land contain 225 olive trees, a mature garden of perennials, roses, fruit trees, sculpture by Piero Sbarluzzi, and ancient oaks. The home is ideal for family living, or alternatively, to create three rental units, agriturismo, a B&B, or cooking programs. Besides the one-story house, with its own entrance, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, and living room with a fireplace and patio, the larger house contains 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. One of the bedrooms currently serves as a media room. Since this structure contains several entrances, it can be divided into two additional units. The front door leads up broad stairs to the second level into a foyer, living room with a fireplace, master bedroom, and tiled bath with a Jacuzzi bathtub and shower. A door separates the foyer from a hallway leading to two small bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. At the end of the hallway is a third room. One can exit to outside from here as well as access the third level, with a large bedroom and another access from an external staircase graced by a pre-Renaissance octagonal column. At the base of the three-story house is a centuries-old wine cellar (cantina and dispensa), with cabinetry, stove, under-counter refrigerator, and sink. Four interior steps lead to the ground level, which also is accessible from the front garden. On the ground level is a bathroom with shower and a spacious, professionally-equipped kitchen, with a large granite-covered center island, custom cabinetry, and glass doors to the courtyard. The courtyard, with a wood-burning pizza oven, abuts a laundry room and two storage rooms. A wide arched wall separates the kitchen from the dining room with a fireplace and double arched glass doors (secured by wooden doors) to outside. In addition to the excellent building materials and charming features of this property, this turn-key country home surrounds one with the beauty of the Orcia valley, spectacular sunsets, convenient shopping, comfort, and tranquility.
