Property descriptionOn the hills of the Tuscan Maremma, in the municipality of Scansano, 420-sqm country house in panoramic position with 10 5 m swimming pool, wine cellar and vineyard (Morellino di Scansano).
Easily reached and close to a town providing all services (2km; 5), this country house with cellar is perfect for whoever is looking for a quiet location not far from the sea but allowing nonetheless a quick access to the other Tuscan towns (Scansano, Grosseto, Castiglione della Pescaia, Follonica, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Firenze...).
The closest airports to the property is in Grosseto, but the terminals in Florence, Pisa, Perugia, Rome and Bologna are equally convenient.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The main country house (310 sqm 3,336 sqft) is laid out onto two floors:
- Ground floor: living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, studio and bathroom. An ample portico hosts an outdoor relax area.
- First floor: 2 double bedrooms, a shared bathroom and a nice master bedroom with walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom.
The annex (150 sqm 1,614 sqft) includes three 3 ample rooms with direct exit to the garden. Currently, the building hosts a hobby room, closets and a laundry, but the surface is enough to create a guesthouse with two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the left side of the building there is a convenient garage.
The property has also a cellar (40 sqm 430 sqft) equipped with the tools needed to produce wine by using the grapes harvested in the vineyard.
STATE AND FINISHES
The country house is in excellent condition and boasts those characteristics typical to Tuscan countryside buildings: stone walls on the outside with a nice portico supported by stone pillars and wooden beams, plastered walls on the inside with sections of exposed stone walls. The ceilings are supported by barrel vaults on the lower floor, while on the upper floor we can see some beautiful wooden beams. Floors are covered in terracotta in the day zone and parquet in the night zone.
On the outside, the property is surrounded by 7.0 hectares of land, partially covered in garden (8,000 sqm) and partially in vineyard (2.0 ha). It is also possible to plant 2 more hectares of vineyard in the property and buy some more in the vicinity.
The vineyards are registered as Morellino di Scansano DOCG (1.4 ha), Maremma Bianco DOC (0.4 ha) and Toscana Rosso IGT (0.2 ha). The vines, planted between 1968 and 2004, include Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Ciliegiolo, Alicante, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Ansonica varieties. The yearly production ranges around 15.5 tons of grapes, split into 10.0 tons of Morellino di Scansano DOCG, 3.0 tons of Maremma Bianco DOC and 2.5 tons of Toscana Rosso IGT.
The land includes an olive grove too, with 460 trees producing a nice variety of olive and thus a good Tuscan olive oil.
The portico hosts a useful relax area fitted with BBQ and wood oven which could also be used as dining area to enjoy the beautiful vista and the nice climate of the area.
Finally, the property is completed by a beautiful 10 5 m panoramic swimming pool with terracotta solarium.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property, thanks to its size and the excellent number of bedrooms, is suitable both as a private residence and as a B&B. The cellar grants the production of a good quantity of wine which could be either used privately or sold for a small income. Same goes for the olive oil.
Whats more, an improvement plan has been recently approved and it allows the construction of a second 110 sqm cellar which would allow the owner to take care of all the steps of wine-making, starting from harvesting up until bottling and labeling.
