This lovely ancient farmhouse dating back to the 17th century has enormous
potential as a business venture but could equally be a wonderful large
family home. For those who seek countryside living, and yet hanker to be
close to a beautiful city, then this house could be a perfect match.
The house has its own private courtyard and an amazing arched portico with
built in barbecue which is ideal for summer dining.
The accommodation is set over three floors.
The ground floor comprises a living area which could be a separate guest
apartment if required or could be utilised in other ways. At present it
offers a rustic kitchen area and an original baking oven, a small dining
area, double bedroom and small bathroom.
The first floor can either be accessed internally or via external stairs
via a Loggia. This floor has some magnificent rooms. There is a large
reception room with fireplace and open staircase leading to the second
floor. On one side of this room there is a small kitchen/dining area and a
drawing room/library. On the other side there is an impressive grand salon
with high ceilings and big windows.
The second floor offers three double bedrooms, one ensuite and a further
bathroom. There is a study which could easily convert to a further bedroom.
The views over the hills to the neighbouring cities and towns, and rolling
countryside is magnificent.
Attached to the house is a large garage which could be converted into
further living space if required as there are two further garages.
Within the grounds there is also a small guest cottage which has a kitchen,
double bedroom, bathroom and dining/living area and its own private terrace.
There are two further garages/workshops which are excellent for parking and
storing one's olive oil from the 800 trees on the property!
The land is a joy containing Olive trees, fruit trees, (figs, prunes,
apples), nut trees, woodland and ample terracing for a swimming pool.
