Farmhouse For Sale in Tuscany
This fully restored farmhouse on a hunting estate sits on a hill on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, enjoying wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and hilltop villages and yet just 10 minutes from the principal train station and motorway exit of Chiusi-Chianciano.
The farmhouse has 460 sqm of floor area over two storeys and is currently arranged with the principal accommodation on the first floor. Accessed via the original external stairway and outside loggia, one finds a bright and airy apartment with 5 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen dining room and living room with a large impressive fireplace.
On the ground floor there are a further two apartments both with two ensuite bedrooms each, a large open plan kitchen, living room, dining area and charming terrace for outdoor living and dining during the summer months.
There is a purpose built studio space of 50 sqm which is currently used for painting and photography retreats due to the wonderful views which can be enjoyed from the windows. Should further accommodation be required this could be converted into another apartment.
The restoration has been carried out with great attention to detail maintaining many of the original features whilst adding high quality bathrooms and kitchens to ensure the utmost comfort.
In addition to the main house there are two further annexes with total floor area of 200 sqm, which could be restored and converted into liveable spaces. The views from both annexes are once again panoramic.

The gardens surrounding the property total a hectare of private land, boasting numerous established trees including pines, oaks, cypresses, as well as olive trees, lavender and rosemary beds.
An open sided barn alongside the main house has been adapted to provide shaded parking during the summer months.
