A classic Tuscan villa with a period exterior and a wonderfully modern interior has just come to the market with 600sq m of living space.

Inside the front door opens onto a grand hall with a study on one side, and leads into a large open plan reception which combines kitchen and dining area – it also has French doors out to the garden; just off this living area is the guest bedroom suite.

Upstairs is another large reception room with a working fireplace and state-of-the-art entertainment facilities. There are additionally five bedrooms and four bathrooms and steps up to a large gallery which overlooks the living room on the ground floor, and enjoys views both north and south across the landscape.
