Wonderful villa in the heart of Chianti, a few kilometres from San Gimignano with panoramic views of the ancient village
Poggibonsi (SI) // 300 sqm // 3 bedrooms // 3 bathrooms // swimming pool // garage // sauna // garden
The property consists of a large comfortable 300 SQM villa located in the hills between Florence and Siena. Restored by the current owners with meticulous care, the original building has been converted into a splendid country house full of warmth, charm and comfort. The property is accessed through a cypress-lined avenue in the typical Sienese style. All the internal areas have been furnished in a combination of modern and classic style which blend wonderfully with the ancient "cotto" floors and wooden beams in the typical Tuscan style. The external facades retain their exposed stone, brick and terracotta roof tiles.
On the ground floor is the huge kitchen ,which, as was the case in all the original country houses, is the most important part of the home where families gather. Equipped with all modern luxuries and comforts, there are the original Carrara marble sinks and the large fireplace. The dining area extends outside through a large furnished loggia with a shaded area for outdoor dining. The kitchen leads to the double-height living room where the attention to detail is exceptional with the fireplace impressively framed in stone, the stairs, the accessories for the carved sandstone windows, and the decorated walls. Above the living room is a study with two sofas which can be transformed into two comfortable beds. The floor is completed by a large bathroom with hydromassage tub and direct internal access to the garage. Upstairs are three very spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom with a four poster bed opens onto a spacious terrace from which you can look out over the garden and swimming pool. Also on the first floor are two bathrooms equipped with all comforts.
The beautiful garden surrounds the house and ensures complete privacy and is adorned with pathways in Chianti stone which lead to a large infinity pool that is positioned so as to enjoy the best view of the Sienese hills and San Gimignano. From the terrace above the swimming pool you can enjoy a drink or lie in the hammock enjoying the fresh evening air. A fourth bathroom under the terrace is equipped with a sauna area. The gardens are landscaped with essences of the Mediterranean scrub, olive and cypress trees, all of which overlook the beautiful valley. The property includes a large garage and three outdoor parking spaces.
Few territories can offer such a rich and evocative panorama as that of Chianti: green hills scattered with kilometres of vineyards and olive groves, narrow villages nestled inside large medieval walls, winding roads, castles and fortresses. Renowned throughout the world for the production of its excellent wine, the Chianti area is characterised by the continuous alternation of valleys and gentle hills but also by rugged and solitary hills covered with oaks, cypresses and pines. The whole area is dotted with ancient villages, abbeys, castles, farmhouses and villas: an architectural landscape made with simple and warm materials such as sandstone and terracotta which have been adapted over time to fit the natural landscape with striking harmony.
