Inspiring Tuscan Villa with Stunning Views, Unique Countryside Retreat
Exclusive opportunity to buy an inspiring Tuscan countryside retreat with swimming pool and olive grove set on a hill overlooking the Appenines in between Arezzo and Cita di Castello. This gorgeous villa in authentic Casa Colonica style is completely renovated with high quality materials and equipped for all modern comfort.
Renovated Tuscan Country House
This Tuscan hilltop property sits 600 m high overlooking the centuries unchanged Tuscan landscapes. Fully restored inside and out in 2006, the main house retains completely its original aspect with authentic tile flooring and ceilings. There are five bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms over two floors as well as an attic which can easily be converted into a sixth bedroom.
This typical Tuscan villa comes fully furnished. It has a ground and top floor, which are separately accessible by both interior and exterior staircases to allow for independence. The ground floor has a fully dressed kitchen, a dining room and sitting room with an open fire place. The top floor features three bedrooms, a mezzanine with tv room, and access to the attic. There is wifi and an internet hookup. Outside there is an original bread oven.
A small renovated chapel on the property, overlooking the valley and a picturesque, walled Tuscan village, could be converted into a romantic guest house or bed & breakfast opportunity.
Garden with Stunning Views and Big Swimming Pool
Two pergolas and an open veranda offer wonderful outdoor living space with stunning views. The landscaped garden, with lavendar and rosemary bushes, is 15,000 m2 with a large 6 x 15 m swimming pool. A technical room below the swimming pool provides ample storage for a lawnmower, washer, dryer, and furniture.
The property has over 7.5 hectares of garden, olive grove and woodlands. The approximately 50 olive trees - old and young ones - produce excellent home grown oil. A well provides an abundance of fresh drinkable water for the household as well as for the automatic irrigation system in the garden. Two gates and an electric fence secure the garden.
Due to its splendid position on a hill top, the views are unobstructed and unspoilt over 360°.
The nearby village is connected with a good road and can provide in all needs for food and services (bank, post offices, supermarket, renowned restaurants).
