Charming country house with garden
This charming country house with garden is the result of the conservative restoration of a small rural house with adjoining garage. The building, of remote stone construction, is located in the splendid setting of Ancaiano just 13 km from Siena. The garden of the house is accessed via a small private road, where, through a large driveway gate, you can easily park 1 or 2 cars in the private courtyard. Crossing the garden, which lies on the natural slope of the land, you reach the paved area in front of the entrance to the house. This outdoor area, bordered by an ancient stone wall, overlooks the municipal road and the typical valley below dotted with farmhouses surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. From the entrance, you are welcomed by a large living area located on the ground floor in what used to be the farm shed, consisting of a large open space with kitchen area, dining area and the living area is developed in front of a typical wood-burning fireplace. On the same floor, there are 2 closets, 1 study, 1 bathroom and a large multifunctional room. An internal staircase leads to the first floor of the oldest part of the building, where 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom have been planned, but instead a large bedroom with en suite bathroom and wardrobe could be planned as well. The project includes latest-trend finishes such as bleached wooden beam ceilings, hand-made terracotta in the lightest shade and natural lime plasters. There will be an underfloor heating system with heat pump and ventilated roof, latest generation fixtures and thermal insulation that will bring the building in energy class A. Being under renovation it is possible to customize the details and finishes and above all take advantage of an important tax relief. In the courtyard, it is also possible to build a swimming pool.
This charming property is located in the locality of Ancaiano, in the Municipality of Sovicille, on a sunny slope, a few kilometres from Siena. The hamlet is characterized by ancient farmhouses, nineteenth-century villas and Romanesque churches as well as a typically Tuscan surrounding countryside where the fields are designed to be beautiful before being comfortable to cultivate. In the immediate vicinity, there are all essential services such as banks, supermarkets, schools etc. Ideal both as a residence and as a country house or for tourist rentals.
