DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS, STATE AND FINISHES The country house (350 sqm 3,765 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) dates back to the 18th century and was originally a hunting lodge. The building was finely restored and furnishes and boasts classic features mixed with modern comforts (alarm, video surveillance, heating, led spotlights and stereo music system). Fixtures are mostly hidden inside the walls with dark wood shutters; the ground floor is paved in handcrafted Tuscan terracotta, while the first floor boasts natural oak wooden planks. The building is laid over two floors organized as follows: - Ground floor: garage/technical room (boiler, pool machinery, water pump and control panels), equipped kitchen with ample outdoor oven, cellar for wines, ample bathroom with shower, laundry room, pool room with bar corner, library/painting room with piano and double bed; - First floor: ample living room with original fireplace (here one could build a second kitchen), two double bedrooms, master bedroom (where one could also realize an en-suite bathroom) and two bathrooms with shower. Behind the house there is a ruin (250 sqm 2,690 sqft) which underwent a conservative restoration so that it now constitutes a sort of courtyard for the farmhouse, with a well converted into a campfire. The volume of the ruin could be used to build another farmhouse in the property. A canopy (roughly 25 sqm 269 sqm) completes the property. EXTERNAL AREA The estate spans 45.4 hectares of land, split between arable land (34.4 ha) and woodland (11.0 ha). The land also houses a truffle ground with two natural spring and over one hundred different species of fruit trees (recognized by the province of Siena). The estate is contoured by a stream of water and is not far from the Canaloni del Farma. From a naturalistic point of view, the estate is almost untouched and located between two important protected areas (Val di Farma and Val di Merse). The reserve is rich in indigenous fauna such as boars, roe deers, fallow deers, deers, badgers, porcupines, pheasants and hares.
