This dream house, completely renovated and decorated by its owner in 2012, is perched atop the rolling hills of Tuscany.
Within this property every detail and hue, fabric and feature, bears the personal imprint of the owner, a well-known Italian designer. You may recognize the perfectly manicured grounds and impeccably coordinated interior from past published pieces in numerous international magazines and design books. Or, you might just enjoy settling in for a restful, well-coordinated get-away in the lap of luxury, surrounded by the wonders of nature. The villa is built amidst the rolling Tuscan hills, and is comfortably tucked within 50 acres of private woodland. It faces a lush back garden, seasonally awash in the bright spectrum and fragrant scents of roses, jasmine, and lavender, and shaded by verdant olive trees. Several outdoor seating areas offer southwest exposures and glorious sunsets.
This property offers magnificent contrasts, an eclectic mix of contemporary design and Old World antiques. Enter the home and you will find yourself inside a large living room that leads out to a gracious, covered patio with beautiful swimming pool. The ground level also offers a cozy, compact office space with desk. Guest will also find a rustic, yet modern, well-stocked kitchen with wood burning oven and fireplace. An archway leads into a formal dining room with seating for 10 and an informal dining room, nestled next to a log fire with seating for 6. There are also two air-conditioned double bedrooms: first one with walk-in closet, en suite bathroom with tub and direct access to patio and the second one with en suite shower room.
On the first floor, guest will find the four other bedrooms (three doubles and one twin), all with air-conditioning. The first two each have en suite facilities whilst the third double and the twin share a shower room. All of the beds in the house, from the twins to the four-poster queen, have striking architectural details that make them instant conversation pieces.
The property also features a lower floor with separate entrance where the guest can find a twin bedroom with en suite shower room, along with the convenience of an in-house laundry room with washer and dryer.
The villa opens onto a lush formal garden surrounded by low, rustic stone wall and covered patio facing the 14m x 5.5 m heated swimming pool. Other al fresco dining areas furnished with tables and chairs are found near the front alcove entry, and the back. The property is spectacularly landscaped with shrubs, greenery, olive trees, and tall cypress trees.
This villa is beautifully positioned in the rolling Tuscan hills and offers a natural hide-away, with amenities that let you plug into the real world: satellite TV, DVD and CD player, Wi Fi connection, telephone, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
