Stunning view. This stone house offers a big luxurious kitchen, a huge terrace and salt water infinity-pool en-suite. It is rare to find the pool as a natural extension of house and terrace. This magnificent independent house on 4 hectars private terrain with panoramic view of the Chiana Valley including the 2 lakes, Trasimeno and Chiusi, is surrounded by newly planted vines and olive trees. "Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme" at hand on the terrace for your Italian cooking.
The house sits on a hill above Sarteano only 2 km away. Sarteano is a traditional and genuine Tuscan town with 5000 inhabitants offering 10+ restaurants, bars, a decent COOP super marked, butcher, bakery, fresh pasta store etc.
The A - Z renovation finished in June 2016. The 3 story house has 3 double rooms (two of which can sleep 3) and a single room, 3 bathrooms, 1 toilet, 1 outdoor shower. Luxurious and cozy kitchen with open fire place and a long wooden dinner table that sits 10, sitting room with fireplace and balcony. From the kitchen you walk straight onto the terrace equipped with outdoor furniture and a BBQ. The infinity pool is an integral part of the terrace area from where you have a breath taking view of the valley and the lakes. The lower floor has its own kitchen suitable for those desiring a semi-separate unit.
The philosophy of the renovation has been to go for natural materials with an emphasis on solid wood and travertine. Tuscan stile with a Nordic element and a scent of the Middle East. You will find solid oak wood and travertine floors, Armenian hand painted tiles, Phillip Starck sanitation, solid wooden 4 cm. table top and 90 cm wide SMEG stove in the kitchen. Every item in the interior decoration has been chosen with care by the owners, some are uniquely tailor-made for the house.
You can expect extremely friendly reception and service by our local Sarteano "maitre" , who can also arrange a babysitter or private chef for you if so desired. Linens, mid-week cleaning service and change of towels is included.
You can take walks or cycle in the woods behind the house or visit Tuscan sites and nearby villages such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Radicofani, Cetona and Chiusi or visit thermal baths in Bagno Vignoni, San Casciano dei Bagni and Bagni San Filippo.
