Within a few minutes from the characteristic village of Castel San Gimignano, in an unspoilt countryside, lies this beautiful 2 bedroom farmhouse which is being restored to a very high standard.
The property is set in an idyllic position, in a very quiet part of the countryside, yet a short drive from a main road, and enjoys privacy and breath-taking views.
The farmhouse measures 125 square meters distributed on a single floor, with a large dual aspect living room, a separate kitchen, 2 dobule bedrooms, 1 family bathroom, and a storage room which could be conveniently turned into a second bathroom. From the kitchen and living room there is direct access to a sun bathed terrace of around 40 square meters overlooking the swimming pool.
The level of finish is superb, the architect looking after the renovation is renowned for the patient restoration of all original materials which can be re-claimed and reused, adding charm and character to this building. From hand mage terracotta tiled floors to chestnut beam ceilings, exterior stone walls in the same stone as the original barn and claiming those of the surrounding countryside.
The large openings in the living room and bedrooms will host iron framed windows with a large single window pane, and are pivoting on the centre line, allowing for uninterrupted views both when windows are closed or open. The owners at the moment have the opportunity to choose the interior fittings in order to create an ambience suited to their taste, further on probably these will be chosen and fitted by the architect, as the works progresses.
The property is free on 4 sides, with an 800 square meters private garden hosting a swimming pool in a south west position and enjoying panoramic views of the countryside with olive groves. The grounds also host a double covered car port.
This property will become a superb second home for those who wish to enjoy a private retreat and beautiful views, and also an excellent investment opportunity as the same is perfect for tourist rental, the discerning type!
