This large villa on the edge of a typically Tuscan hilltop village in the province of Siena is built in Sienese brick and its 3 floors have been transformed into 3 independent and luxurious apartments making it ideal for use as a holiday rentals business or for shared use by family and friends. Double metal gates lead into a driveway and a large parking area where a small outbuilding provides storage space for garden equipment and pool furniture.
The ground floor apartment can be entered both from the village street and from the garden. The outside doors lead directly into a spacious kitchen / dining room. Large windows and the light–coloured granite floor tiles, which are used throughout the property, combine to create a sense of space and luminosity. Attractive brick arches lead into the sitting room area from where French doors give onto the large terrace at the rear of the building. A central corridor gives access to the bedroom area where there are 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are en suite.
An external staircase leads up to the first floor and an entrance hall shared by the 1st and 2nd floor apartments. On the first floor and at the rear of the building large shuttered windows in the main living area allow excellent views over the garden and surrounding countryside. This open space has a fitted kitchen and dining area at one end and a sitting room with an open fireplace at the other. There is a master bedroom suite with en suite full bathroom (tub and shower) as well as a roomy walk-in wardrobe. The 2 other double bedrooms each have en suite bathrooms, and there is also a guest cloakroom.
On the second or loft floor is the third apartment with a unique atmosphere created by the massive roof beams, sloping eaves and electronically controlled roof skylights. The internal staircase leads into the centre of an open plan kitchen/dining/ lounge area, there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom and 2 other double bedrooms which share a bathroom.
