This distinctive and prestigious farmhouse is located in the countryside of San Giovanni d'Asso, recently part of the municipality of Montalcino. It is an important building complex that covers a built area of approximately 900sqm, completely restored and habitable. The property includes about 3 hectares of land, consisting mainly of parkland and olive groves; inside the park there is a swimming pool that overlooks the valley.
San Giovanni d'Asso is located 50km from Siena, the administrative center of the county, and places of interest such as Pienza, San Quirico and Montepulciano are no more than 30Km far. The nearest motorway exit is in Bettolle that is 25Km far and the Chiusi station, from which you can reach Florence, Rome and Milan, is located 55Km away. The seaside town of Castiglione della Pescaia is approximately 100 km far, while the small ski
resort of Monte Amiata is 60Km far.
The property consists of four residential buildings and some outbuildings. Three are located in the main building while one is detached. The main unit is on two levels and measures a total of approximately 290sqm; the levels have been divided and the upper floor has external independent access. The ground floor, which could be divided into two units, comprises entrance hall, 2 habitable kitchen, double bedroom, 2 large bathrooms, turkish bath, spacious living room and large lounge with a fireplace and study. Upstairs we find the dining room with kitchen, living room, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a panoramic terrace. The first apartment, still part of the main body, is on two levels, covering an area of approximately 140sqm. The ground floor has a large living room with fireplace, kitchen and bathroom. On the upper floor are the sleeping area with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. The other independent apartment is exactly equivalent to the above described. The separate unit is divided into two separate dwellings, both on multiple levels. The first portion, measuring about 130sqm, comprises a large living room with fireplace and kitchen area and a bathroom. The upper floor consists of two bedrooms and a comfortable bathroom. The second portion consists of three levels, including a basement and measures approximately 160sqm. The ground floor consists of large open plan lounge with fireplace and kitchen. The upper floor consists of the sleeping area, where there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. The semi-basement, while being used as a large living area and equipped with bathroom, is technically a garage; the change of use should not be a problem. The property is completed by annexes, used for the most part as technical rooms and remittances.
The property is surrounded by a large garden with panoramic views. Inside the park there is also placed the private and scenic pool, which allows you to enjoy absolute privacy. Completing the estate there are some parts of forest, arable land and a small olive grove.
