Immersed in the quiet of the Tuscan countryside, we are pleased to offer for sale a historic house set on a marvelous natural terrace from which the whole city of Siena and its surroundings are embraced with the eye.
The property appears as a large estate set among the green Tuscan hills, but fragmented inside because it is divided into two distinct housing units. The main complex, where the former historic lemon house is located, is currently used as a refined relais, and has been restored preserving all the original charm. This is told through the architectures kept unaltered, the exposed wooden beams of the 700, the period furnishings of different origins and the open fireplace of the 600, one of the many valuable pieces present in the house.
The living room, strong point of the structure, is framed by the pastel colors of the large windows that make it incredibly bright and act as a natural frame for the wonderful garden. The large living area on the ground floor is completed by the traditional kitchen with an exposed island that summarizes, in the stylistic choices of furniture and details, the rustic component of the house which also has access to an open space. Next to the entrance, a study area, a bathroom where the raw materials dissolve and at the same time enhance the modern furnishings by Philippe Starck, a resulting space between the bathroom and the hallway that allowed to obtain numerous recesses for storage use Laundry.
From the ground floor, going up the stairs, you will find a mezzanine to use as a storage room at a height or another corner wardrobe, and then a first floor where we find the master bedroom, another wardrobe area and a bathroom, with Jacuzzi, with a characteristic view over the roofs.
Next to the lemon house, the adjacent structure, again with exposed brick, introduces us into another living area with double access to the outside, and five bedrooms, one of which is a loft, all with en suite bathroom. Even in these environments the choice of colors, furnishings and finishes played a key role in creating a different inspiration from the more romantic to the Moroccan style.
If the first building has been perfectly restored, the second, used as a manor house, needs improvements. This, at least in its first nucleus, was built in the 1729, as evidenced by a glazed terracotta Madonna placed in a small travertine frame in the North facade, and has belonged to the same family for almost three centuries.
The dwelling, set on two levels, opens on the ground floor onto a large living room with a dining room in exact correspondence of which is a level terrace which can be used as a relaxation area, a first bedroom, bathroom, utility room and traditional kitchen with original 800 hearth. On the first floor there are five bedrooms with three bathrooms, while on the second large spaces, to be restored, with an incomparable view of Siena and the surrounding hills.
Outside, a large garage / greenhouse of around 56 is located a short distance away.
The whole property is set in a unique naturalistic context, whose prestigious note is made up of a garden dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.
The lemon plants are a prominent role in the garden furniture; together with lemons, exotic plants and wisteria pergolas that with their colors and their fragrances make the external environment magical thanks to the presence of an aviary and a panoramic swimming pool.
The exterior is completed by a splendid olive grove in production of about two hectares, an orchard of about one hectare and a part used for the special saffron cultivation.
Its strategic location, about a five-minute drive from Siena, with its beauties, the Chianti cellars and the important spas, make this property a unique investment of its kind.
Siena is about 70 km from Florence and its airport.
