Located along a road once used by pilgrims in their travel to Rome, this building is located on the place where pilgrims stopped to pray, and in fact the residence was obtained through the conversion and subsequent restoration of a small and the annexed rectory.The building has been masterfully restored to preserve its countryside look, exalting the beauty of external stones and keeping the terracotta floors and the masonry fireplaces on the inside.EXTERNAL AREAThe building is surrounded by 1.66 hectares of land, mostly earmarked to garden and completely fenced, a characteristic granting the property privacy and security. Further enriching the exteriors, we can find a beautiful 10 x 4,5 m above-ground swimming pool, fitted with a nice wooden solarium offering a breath-taking view of the surrounding countryside.Around the property there are numerous paths in the woods, particularly indicated if one is looking to be involved in biking and hitch-hiking.USE AND POTENTIAL USESThe property is currently used as a holiday house rented out to tourists. The ample size allows the hosting of up to 12 people. The presence of 6 bedrooms would allow keeping one of them while renting the others out.Alternatively, it is always possible to use the building as a private residence, leaving some of the rooms unused in case we want to host friends and or relative in this most renowned area of Tuscany.The villa is very close (50 m) to another building, slightly smaller, currently part of the same hosting business. The two buildings can be bought together for a total price of EUR 2.300.000,00. A description for the properties is VISIBLE HERE.
