The first floor is accessed from an original stone staircase from an inviting lobby area.

Within the grounds and not too far away from the house is a large swimming pool ideally located to enjoy the Tuscan landscape.The buildings have been well maintained over the years however some elements might need updating. The garden is mature and the boundaries are now established with bushes and trees and one might want to cut these back to expose the full Tuscan panorama.
