DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The tower (roughly 450 sqm – 4,842 sqft, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) is the heart of the property and is laid over four floors in total. The building boasts the typical batter and thick stone walls usually seen in medieval fortifications. Interiors boast classical finishes such as stone and terracotta floors, wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
The building was already documented in the 14th century, when it is first mentioned in a document allowing for the construction of the nearby church. The protruding walls on top of the building point out how the building was probably supposed to have a further floor, no longer existing.
The remaining buildings (roughly 150 sqm – 1,614 sqft in total) are currently used as garages, firewood shelter, tool sheds and pool house with bathroom and dressing room.
A beautiful vine-covered pergola offers a convenient outdoor area for al fresco dining or just to relax and enjoy the pleasant climate of Tuscany.
The tower is located right at the center of a 2.0-ha plot of land, fully fenced and covered by a well-maintained garden which also accommodates the 12 × 6 m swimming pool.
