A small estate for sale in Tuscany, in the beautiful countryside near to Trequanda in the province of Siena. Consisting of a large (c.500sqm) stone Villa Padronale in the traditional style, 3 outbuildings including guest/staff accommodation for a further c. 200sqm, swimming pool and tennis court. The land around the house is beautifully kept, including lawns and well ordered vineyards and olive groves. The main building, dating to around 1700, is fully restored and provides enormous interior living spaces with many original features left in tact. The centrepiece is the main salon, covering some 135sqm, with a central brick column from which spring 4 old brick arches. The salon is thus split into 4 nicely defined seating and/or dining areas, with a large old fireplace in one of them. The building, in a characteristic L-shape, is defined by its colonnaded walkways with brick arches on the ground and first floors, overlooking the piazzale area. Adjacent to the Villa is a large stone and rendered building, laid out over three floors and split into various uses including apartments (for guests of staff) and workshops on the lower floor including a cantina. There is another outbuilding in the residential complex, with laundry facilities. The layout of the complex feels like a small hamlet, rather than simply a home with outbuildings.
The estate extends to a total of some 60 hectares, including 35 of woodland, 3 of olive trees, 3 of vineyards, 9 arable and 11 set down for forestation. With beautiful views over the Tuscan landscape, and offering great privacy in a very sought after location, this is a must see for anyone searching for a substantial slice of the Tuscan dream.
