The property is a beautifully restored historic country home offering complete privacy while being within walking distance of the small picturesque renaissance hill town of Monte San Savino with its many restaurants, shops and weekly market, and within a short drive of the city of Arezzo and its art treasures. Monte San Savino has its own exit from the A1 motorway and is strategically located between Florence and Rome and close to the expressway between Siena and Perugia.
The villa is spacious and generously proportioned. A large family kitchen with travertine floor leads to a graceful dining/drawing room with beamed ceiling and an open fire. French doors open directly onto the sunny veranda and a covered ‘limonaia' offering the opportunity for all-weather indoor/outdoor living in summer months. An ancient wood fired oven provides alternative cooking options.
Solar panels provide economical hot water and under floor heating. Upstairs three large double bedrooms benefit from adjoining private bathrooms. The master bedroom has a private terrace and a reading room/bedroom situated in the tower above. To the rear of the house there is a further double bedroom with self contained kitchenette, living room and bathroom offering the option of a separate apartment with its own entrance. A large utility room and study offer further possibilities for a sixth and seventh bedroom. The beautiful salt water swimming pool with travertine edging (13m x 5m) is situated in lawns below the house and benefits from a shower and changing room.
The house may be purchased with up to 30 acres (12 hectares) of land consisting of parkland with ancient dry stone walls, woodland, olive grove and vineyard, by negotiation.
