Villa BuonConvento | Property for sale
Zone: Crete Senesi - Siena
The property is completely secluded yet only ten minutes drive from the centre of Buonconvento with its excellent range of shops, bars, restaurants in the province of Siena, located about 70km south of Florence and about 25km southeast of Siena in the area known as the Crete Senesi.
This well converted former farmhouse has been restored to a high standard whilst retaining many of the original features such as wooden beams, arched ceiling and various fireplaces including the large one in the original kitchen. The floors are mainly polished terracotta and the modern bathrooms have travertine tiles and multifunctional showers. Currently run as an agriturismo, it could easily revert to a very comfortable family house with separate guest accommodation.
Facing mainly south and west, the farmhouse comprises eight/ten bedrooms, five bathrooms (some of which are en-suite), six reception rooms, main kitchen with excellent preparation and work surfaces with plenty of ground floor access to the gardens, pool and cantina. The farmhouse would easily split into a main unit (facing south and west) comprising large living room with adjacent main kitchen, dining room, study, TV/entertainment room with balcony study area, fireplace, kitchen bar and bathroom, bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom and five double bedrooms and two bathrooms at first floor level reached by two attractive stone and terracotta staircases. The two ground floor apartments are on the south and south-east side of the farmhouse each with two double bedrooms, with one on a balcony reached by circular iron staircases, living area with kitchen corner and direct access to the gardens.
The gardens around the house are mainly lawn with attractive brick built well and a raised swimming pool with a covered BBQ area. The swimming pool is reached by steps from the garden and looks over the house to the expansive sweep of hills and farmland to the south, west and east of the property. In the distance is the mountain top town of Montalcino yet it is nearly impossible to see any signs of human habitation from either the gardens or the swimming pool area. To the west and south side of the house is a large brick terraced area.
The cantina (70 sq. m) is set into the hillside behind the house and provides not only three very good storage areas but also has a dual purpose wood and gas central heating and hot water boiler system, a 15,000 litre water storage tank plus a further 3,000 litre water tank all supplied by mains water.
The land is made up of approximately 30 hectares of arable land plus a further 10 hectares of woodland.
