Beautifully restored farmhouse and barn located on a hill amidst chestnut covered woods. This is an inspired hideaway for families and parties looking for some peace and quiet yet only a few minutes drive to the amenities of Licciana Nardi and the valley road with easy access to the motorway and train station.
A private track leads to the gated driveway. The property comprises a group of buildings set around a courtyard all of which have been sympathetically restored externally to retain a rustic feel without completely removing the authenticity.
The interior has been designed to include much architectural detail. Thoughtful lighting emphasizes the many contrasts including exposed stone walls, arches and original beamed ceilings. Furnishings combine traditional design with modern comfort and practicality. The barn has been converted into a superb ‘loft ‘style contemporary living room to include a custom designed kitchen with marble work surfaces and integral basins. The kitchen has professional oven and large American fridge/freezer. A large table can accommodate up to 12 people. The comfortable sitting area is fitted with an open fireplace and is equipped with CD mini system. Doors lead to a pretty terrace with steps down to the garden. The infinity pool at the garden level cascades down into a plunge pool at a lower level. The decked terrace is equipped with recliners for sun enthusiasts.
The original chestnut barn overlooks the pool as a charming reminder of the property’s rustic origins. The main building comprises 6 bedrooms sleeping a maximum of 12 guests comprising 2 double rooms, 1 with en suite bathroom, 3 twin rooms and a children’s room furnished with bunk beds. The 3 designer bathrooms feature hand made tiles and contemporary fittings. An additional area with doors onto the courtyard provides a calm and relaxed living space with Cable/satellite TV. A store room at a lower level houses a washing machine.
Please note that every bedroom is equipped with a portable fan. The property does not have air conditioning.
This property has a rustic feel as it is set lower down on the estate at the edge of the woodland. The beauty of the property is that you feel as if you are miles away from anything while in effect you are only a couple of minutes away from the local town with a selection of traditional shops and services. This is a real ' getaway from it all' property without the inconvenience of being miles from anywhere.
A picturesque chapel sits at the entrance to the estate, which also makes this a lovely venue for weddings.
A table tennis table is available on request.
