Restored Tuscan Casa Padronale with guest apartment, an independent guest cottage, pool and 30 hectares of land.
Felcino Bianco is situated on the Tuscany/Umbria border with wonderful views into Umbria. The property isn't far from the beautiful village of Monterchi and the city of Arezzo, with mainline train station and access to the A1 autostrada, is only 30 kilometres away. The building dates back to the early 18th century and as well as being a private home it has also been used as a music centre with concert hall. Within the main house there is an independent apartment and there is also a guest/staff cottage a short distance from the main house. The environment is ideal for artists, musicians, writers and for lovers of wildlife. It is the perfect retreat.
You enter the house via steps to the front door under an archway to the first floor with a spacious entrance hall, from the there one enters a large sitting-room with fireplace and original stone and wood work. Off this is a large main bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The next two rooms are used as studies but could be used as additional bedrooms. There is the main eat-in kitchen from which steps go down to a spacious dining-room and cosy sitting-room. Double doors open out to the garden.
From the entrance-hall a staircase leads up to the top floor with five bedrooms (3 double and 2 singles), a large living-room and a fully equipped kitchen and sitting-room. Below the first floor are large rooms which contain the water management systems, a wine cellar, a music room with ante-room and the concert hall which seats 50 people. These rooms also have their own external doors onto the terracing outside.
Close by are outside storage buildings and the woodshed, stone-built with tiled roof, and the cottage which may be used for family, friends, rental or staff. The cottage contains a ground-floor double bedroom, hall and shower-room, with upstairs an open-plan fully fitted kitchen/diner and sitting-room and has its own heating system and an outside terrace. The estate contains several olive groves (with circa 350 trees of which 250 are mature, producing approximately100 litres of top-class oil p.a.), fruit trees and 20 hectares of woodland. A private well supplies the property with water.
