Monticiano villa description

The house in Via del Pizzicore is divided into three floors: two bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a shower room in white mosaic, a walk-in closet, kitchen and living- dining room, with a bread oven, a fantastic fireplace, large windows with balcony and a glass terrace with a view of the valleys and the Tuscan hills. It is totally renovated and restored respecting the original stone walls, the chestnut-wood beams and antique tiles, introducing modern technology and concepts as well as art in the design of the staircase that turns as a sculpture from the ground floor to the third floor in travertine stone and wood.

The large fireplace itself is a sculpture, extending from the living-room to the bedroom on the third floor. The fusion between antique and modern was also respected in furnishing and decorating the space, obtaining a result of style, elegance, and simplicity. Special tile, mosaic and stone work was used in the bathrooms and the kitchen, which is designed with real cooks in mind. The house is equipped with new appliances: television, radio, washing machine, refrigerator and telephone. The hot water and heating system is adjustable to individual needs

                          Year Purchased: 1980

                          About the owner: Siglinda Scarpa is an Italian artist now based in North Carolina. Siglinda creates vessels and pots for cooking that, however sculptural, are unmistakably functional. Quite apart from these, she makes purely sculptural pieces that Georgia O’Keefe would understand very well. These pieces Siglinda calls Clouds, like the clouds of a summer day building to a gathering storm. In addition to her work as an artist, Siglinda is a tireless animal rights activist. As founder and primary benefactor for cat sanctuary The Goathouse Refuge in Pittsboro, NC, Siglinda fosters a safe haven for cats that were dispossessed or scheduled for euthanasia by public shelters. Though still in its infancy, The Goathouse Refuge has placed many cats and kittens in forever homes thanks to Siglinda’s support.

                          Why the Owner Chose Monticiano:
                          I chose to purchase this property because it is located in the village where my mother grew up. It is a beautiful area. Wheat grows in the winter and the hills are covered with the most vibrant emerald green. For the holidays you will be able to taste specialties of the local cuisine. Spring explodes in March, with all the wild flowers and mimosa blossoms. The fruit trees start to bloom then and reach their peak in April. It is time for fresh asparagus, artichokes, peas, and all the new lettuces. May and June are fragrant with roses, lilacs, irises and peonies. Every house has flower pots and urns outside the door. July and August are opulent with fruits. Peaches, plums, cherries, and apricots are picked ripe from the trees. It is the time to go swimming at the seashore and have a great fish dinner in Orbetello or Follonica. In Oct and Nov people are making wine, collecting chestnuts and wild mushrooms in the forest.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          In the village there is a cafe & one little store. It sells basic things. Shopping is done in San Rocco a Pilli, a nearby small town, where you can find everything, from the bank to gourmet stores. If you are coming from Roma it is fun to have lunch in one of the small villages along the road (Orvieto is a neat place to visit, & so is Todi or Montepulciano). It is 15 min from Siena, 35 min from the seashore, 40 min from San Gimignano, 1 hr from Florence, 40 min from Arezzo. The Merse is a river with hot springs. There are two spas in Bagni di Petriolo, 10 min away. You can also go into the river itself, where the natural pools are & there are miles of forest all around. San Lorenzo has a beautiful church & you shouldn't miss San Galgano, the most spiritual and gorgeous Gothic abbey in Tuscany. It is in the middle of the Tuscan hills a few miles on the road after Monticiano. There are many good restaurants in the area; a very special one I care to mention is in Pari, a gorgeous little village toward Grosseto. The name is LOCANDA DEI CACCIATORI. It is in a private home & the food is great & not expensive. Wed morning there is an open market in Siena. You can find the most gorgeous wool sweaters, fabric, linen, flowers, baskets, copper pots (even antiques) at unbelievably good prices. Do not miss Arezzo. The first Sun of the month is antique market, & the streets are full of real antiques.
