A real casa colonica (country home) on a plateau, overlooking unblemished rolling tuscan countryside. The house, a large and authentic farmhouse, once property of the Principessa Corsini, now belonging to an artist for more than forty years
A large and authentic farmhouse, 40 km from Florence in the heart of Tuscany, overlooking rolling tuscan countryside, once part of the Principessa Corsini estate, now belonging to an artist for more than twenty five years.
The artist has kept the genuine structure, introducing light colours and clear spaces in harmony with the original sense of the farmhouse.
The living quarters are on the first floor, as customary. Though simple and essential provide most modern comforts and conveniences. (The groundfloor, once stables, are now unlived-in studio storage space.)
A large balcony ideal for outdoor eating and living, with magnificent views, leads off a well-equipped kitchen with cooker/oven, good cooking gear & dishwasher. The house sleeps 4 people comfortably.
One large room - double bed, one large room -medium size bed and one double sofa bed in the library. Everything is decorated tastefully with artifacts from foreign travels and artistic curiosities.
The single bathroom, also large, is bright and spacious with shower and a bath. There is a wood-burning stove in the living room and air-conditioning in some of the rooms.
A very large garden area and woodlands surrounds the house, and a small plunge pool sunk in the ground surrounded by flowering shrubs adjacent to a reclusive sunbathing area. The small pool, (4 m. diameter, 1.20 m. deep) is not enough to swim in but is delightful to cool off.
The single owner when not traveling resides in a small haybarn next to the house, but at a discreet distance and completely independently; there is enough space and distance for everyone.
The house is most suitable for mature adults with a broad interest in aesthetics, art and quiet relaxation in a countryside setting. It is not particularly suitable for children.
It is ideally situated for peace and quiet and reflection, at the same time the nearest shops are only 2 ½ km away, Castelfranco di Sopra, with everything you could need including an excellent Pizzeria, gourmet shop, weekly market, cafe’s, patisserie and small supermarket.
