Description of the buildings

The tall trees of the secular park delineate the boundary of the property, only interrupted by two entrances one on the front of the villa, the other at the farmhouse.

A path paved with stone, lined with perfectly well-finished hedges, leads to the homes surrounded by  the garden with a swimming pool located on the back of the house in a discreet location.

The buildings measure  a total area of about 640 square meters for a total of 20 rooms including 8 bedrooms served by 7 bathrooms and multiple living areas.

From the landing it is possible to access the large terrace of 52 square meters located on the rear of the villa, overlooking the pool and the park below.

From the living room a staircase leads to the first floor, fully intended as sleeping area with five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The property possesses also a large wooden building hidden among the trees in the park, a kind of multi-purpose area surrounded by greenery, covered but open on the sides.

State and finishes

Both the villa and the house have been restored with great care, paying attention to detail in the creation and choice of materials, recovering where possible the original ones and choosing new, high quality materials.

Particularly high quality finishes are the old paved road in front of the villa, the ancient stone staircase inside, the wooden coffered ceilings in the living room, the bathroom in the master suite fully tiled in marble.

External space

The nine acres of land with centuries-old park surrounding the villa, are an essential element of the charm of the property.

In the external arrangement it is possible to recognize three different spaces, the garden around the house and the villa, with pool; the large open space where once horses were kept; the enchanting forest reachable through a scenic avenue, a kind of tree-lined tunnel that leads to the edge of the forest where there is a big “gazebo” in wood.

Use and potential

The convenient access, the proximity to the town of San Gimignano, the thermal station and the most famous art cities of Tuscany, make this property a place suitable for either a private residence or vacation house, ceremonial home where to host events. Very useful is the proximity to the airports of Pisa and Florence and the presence of the autonomous house that allows receiving guests while maintaining their privacy and independence.

The villa is currently used for tourist activities with excellent returns.
