Small equestrian estate with guest house, pool and horse riding facilities, between Siena and Arezzo in Tuscany.
Lovely Tuscan farmhouse of 320sqm with a restored barn as a guesthouse for another 130sqm, in a pretty location near a small village in the countryside between Arezzo and Siena.
Dating back to the 1600s, the main farmhouse was restored in the 1980s, retaining a lot of the original materials. Laid out on two floors, with internal stairs and an external stone staircase leading to the large loggia on the first floor.
The ground floor has a large, country kitchen, accessed from the beautiful plant-covered veranda. A high arched opening leads through to a living area, behind. The high ceilings are all barrel vaulted. Old wooden doors lead off into a utility room and bathroom on one side and a study/bedroom on the other; both of these have access to the internal stairs and to the enclosed and covered veranda that is situated beneath the loggia. The first floor is dominated by the main living room, with a lovely rustic fireplace as the centrepiece, which has a door to the external loggia.. Behind this room is another large and well equipped country kitchen. Two large double bedrooms complete the floor, both of which have access to the big bathroom. The main house is approximately 280sqm, plus the loggia and the veranda for a further 40sqm.
Adjacent to the main house is the guesthouse, offering approx 130sqm of further living space over two floors.
On the ground floor is a large living room with a wood stove, a dining room with fireplace, a kitchen, a bathroom with shower and independent toilet and a laundry / storage room. On the first floor is a large double bedroom with bathroom and a covered terrace.
Also on the grounds are storage shed/workshop of about 20sqm, and a pretty greenhouse/limonaia of about 30sqm. The grounds around the house are fenced and gated, and cover around 1 hectare and include an above-ground swimming pool with wooden decked surround. The extent of the estate runs to a total of 5 hectares including woodland, pasture and a walnut plantation. Just across the gravel road from the main buildings is the stable building of approx 60sqm, equipped with two open-sided barns for a further 46sqm. The main paddocks for horses are situated in the pastures beyond the fenced garden of the houses complex. A must see for those seeking an Italian house with stable facilities; a rare find.
