Immersed in the rolling Tuscan hills, in the heart of the extraordinary natural setting of the Val d'Orcia, this typical farmhouse, surrounded by about 1 hectare of land, is for sale. It is an ideal starting point to discover the history and culture of one of the most fascinating territories of the Bel Paese, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its breathtaking landscape.
The property is in a quiet, non-isolated position and is easily accessible via a small unpaved road, in excellent condition, that after just 500 metres leads from the asphalt road to the farmhouse, continuing through the hills in the distance.
The property comprises the farmhouse of approximately 310 gross square metres and an annex of 74 gross square metres used as a shed/garage.
The farmhouse is spread over two floors, with the entire ground floor dedicated to the living area with spacious rooms, all with direct access to the garden and connected by large arched openings: the living room with a large fireplace, the dining room, the kitchen and the sitting room with the staircase leading to the first floor. On the same floor, there is also a small bathroom and a room that can be used as a storage room.
On the first floor there is the sleeping area composed of four bedrooms: one bedroom served by an en-suite bathroom and three bedrooms served by an external bathroom, one of which has a fireplace, currently used as a study, and with independent access from the loggia with a panoramic view.
On the front of the farmhouse is the wood-burning oven.
The property is completed by an annex used as a tool shed/garage, with a surface area of approximately 47 gross square metres, located near the entrance gate to the property.
Condition and finishings
The farmhouse in Val d'Orcia has been renovated and is in excellent condition. Both externally and internally it retains the typical characteristics of old Tuscan farmhouses: the facades with visible stone, the roof tiles, the interior floors in handmade terracotta, the ceilings with beams and terracotta tiles.
In the living room on the ground floor there is a large fireplace, while outside there is the old wood-burning oven, fully functional, which all farmhouses were once equipped with for making bread and, today, perfect for making pizza.
The farmhouse is surrounded by about one hectare of private land, mostly used as a garden, with lawn and fruit trees, complemented by a small, well-kept productive olive grove. For those who wish, it is possible, by requesting the necessary authorisations, to build a swimming pool.
Use and potential
The property is perfect for those looking for a home in the true heart of the Val d'Orcia, in a pleasant and quiet position, close to some of the most beautiful historical centres of Tuscany, such as Pienza and the thermal resorts of Bagni San Filippo and Bagno Vignoni, about one and a half hours from Florence and two hours from Rome for day trips.
Due to its unique location and typical, traditional characteristics, the property is also ideal as an investment during periods in which the property is not used, by entering the international weekly rental circuit.
