Tuscany

A typical 18th century Tuscan hill house. It sleeps 5 people in the main house in three bedrooms with two bathrooms and an additional two people in an attached but independent mini apartment. The villa offers all modern conveniences and some very particular details including a carefully designed and comfortably furnished solarium with large heated spa bath, a few steps from the house. Carefully and lovingly restored with a passion and dedication above and beyond the normal. The Owner being very particular in choosing every last detail from the handmade taps to the pure linen curtains that have been hand dyed to ensure just the right delicate shade. Most pieces in the house are either antique or found treasures, all lovingly selected for their original feel and rustic characteristics. ACCOMODATION: On the ground floor is a commodious eat in kitchen. The kitchen has a large and handsome open fireplace as well as a comfy sofa covered with luxurious throws and pillows. The floors are made from beautiful pre used Pietra Serena that was bought form the Siena council and hand cut to create the flagstones (this some times means the kitchen chairs might wobble a bit). The ceiling has massive chestnut beams that support the upper floor and glow gently against the hand finished white washed plaster. The kitchen comes equipped with a large sink, convection oven, a small fridge (there is a larger on in the summer house), a small dishwasher, espresso machine and is well equipped for serious cooks. Through out the house the heating runs under the floors and is independently controlled for every room. This is a very comforting luxury that makes bare feet in winter a pleasure and does not clutter the rooms with radiators. Through an 18th century door one finds an elegant formal dining room that is open to the garden via a massive archway. In the other direction through a service room is the pergola-covered terrace. From the terrace one can access a mini apartment that was once the pigsty and comprises a kitchenette, eating area, sleeping area on a split-level with double bed. The en-suite bathroom is in the old dove coat and has lights and fans cunningly hidden in small arches near the ceiling that once served as entrances for the birds. The mini apartment is considered a part of the villa and cannot be rented separately. All downstairs rooms are open to the garden or terrace via French doors Upstairs one crosses through a loggia reached by a graceful and rustic staircase. The loggia is furnished with a table and comfortable chairs for reading or playing cards and has stunning views of the surrounding hills and dales with Citt della Pieve in the middle ground. It would be the perfect place to watch the sunset or take your breakfast with the most stunning even light flooding in through the cleverly designed, vaguely modern wrought iron windows. From the loggia one enters a spacious sitting room/study with large fireplace, comfy sofas and armchairs.
