PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Less than 10 km from the historic center of the most Gothic city in Tuscany, a unique condensation of artistic and architectural, environmental, cultural and gastronomic wonders, we find Finestra su Siena, an ancient stone farmhouse that shines again thanks to an exclusive and recent intervention of recovery that has safeguarded the original architecture while adapting it to a contemporary, practical but very elegant style. The pickled wooden beams, shades with an enveloping effect on the internal walls, the light-colored windows, the wooden floors alternating with the original terracotta ones, modern design furnishings and accessories, are some of the characteristic features of this building, which is distributed over four levels to comfortably accommodate up to 16 people. To complete the picture, a park and a swimming pool for exclusive use and a splendid view that crosses the rolling green hills studded with vines and olive trees and frames the profiles of the city of Siena: a perfect context for having all the most coveted destinations that dot the medieval city of the Palio: the Valli dell'Orcia, della Chiana, the Crete Senesi, the Chianti and the unmissable villages of eternal charm such as Montalcino, Pienza, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, all reachable in modest times through splendid panoramic roads bordered by soaring cypresses and enchanted landscapes. Well connected to the main expressways to reach tourist destinations and airports, it is a short walk from the railway station and the major shopping centers of the city (7km).
The house has four levels covering an area of about 450 sq m. On the ground floor a large French window leads into the living area with sofa and dining table. This area leads to two double bedrooms (with direct access to the outside via a French window) that share a bathroom with shower and a sitting room gathered around a fireplace and connected with the kitchen and with a double bedroom with joinable beds and ensuite bathroom with shower. This floor is served by a further bathroom with shower with access from the kitchen. From the living room staircases lead up to the next floor and down to the basement where is located the laundry room. On the first floor, accessible directly from the outside as well via a stone staircase, is a a sitting room (with panoramic balcony), a large kitchen, two double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) served by a bathroom with shower. The top floor consists of the attic, composed of a large open-plan living room, a double bedroom served by a bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) with private bathroom with shower and tub.
he circa 2000 sq m, fenced-in park surrounding the villa is covered mainly in lawn and bordered along the perimeter by a mixed-hedge screen. From the entrance gate to the property, a short drive passes in front of the main entrance, where you can unload your luggage, and then leads to a private covered 6-car parking area. In the beautiful well-tended garden are mulberry and olive trees, holm oaks, bushes of St John's wort, wisteria, wild roses and lilacs, while all around the pool area are fruit trees and oleanders. The atmosphere is tranquil and reserved, encouraging you to spend time outdoors and to organize pleasant meals under the pergola furnished with table and chairs outside the kitchen French window and next to the pool.
