House :Three Bedroom Split Level Terraced House San Gimignano
Casa di Gloria is a lovely house on a beautiful estate near San Gimignano. It has a pretty secluded garden area, the perfect spot for relaxing, or dining al fresco whilst enjoying the fantastic view both of the large swimming pool and of the countryside with San Gimignanoâ??s medieval famous towers visible in the distance.
Casa di Gloria is a lovely terraced house situated in the century old Fattoria Scopeto. Originally a group of traditional Tuscan farmhouses, Scopeto has recently been restored and divided into traditional terraced houses and a few apartments; some like Casa di Gloria which are rented, and others owned by Italians families who enjoy them as weekend country retreats. The enclosed grounds of the estate are full of mature trees and a large swimming pool (15m x 8m) enjoying lovely views of the surrounding countryside has been added.
Its entrance leads to the lovely living room with original terracotta vaulted ceiling and a characteristic fireplace surrounded by settees and an armchair. The owner who has artistic flair has added lots of homely touches to make the house very comfortable and welcoming. There is a pleasant dining area in the living room, a separate fully equipped kitchen, and just off the kitchen is a handy second shower room. Upstairs, a corridor lined with pretty pictures, leads to three nicely furnished bedrooms, a master bedroom with a large double bed where an extra bed can be added on request, another with a slightly smaller double bed and a third with single bed, as well as the main bathroom with bath tub.
San Gimignano with its medieval towers, wealth of monuments, craft shops and excellent restaurants is only 5km away and a joy to explore. Casa di Gloria is in a convenient location for visiting all of Tuscanyâ??s major sights, with Siena and Florence both easily accessible via the road, bus and rail links at nearby Poggibonsi 13km away and Certaldo with its interesting medieval quarter and home of the famous â??Mercantiaâ?? craft fair is only 7km down the road. A parking space is in the grounds of the estate.
