Stunning restoration of an old farmhouse in a panoramic spot few minutes from the shops.
The farmhouse is the result of an incredible job leaded by the owners and their expertise.
The house is 300 sqm and it consists of 2 floors, with two living areas, a studio room used as lab, and an amazing kitchen, and of course a bathroom in the ground floor; in the first floor there are 2 bedrooms, there could be three, plus 2 more bathrooms.
You access to the house through a private gate and reach the house in 100m dirt road. The house has a beautiful iron-structure veranda where you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view.
The ground floor boasts wonderful original features, like the floors with antique terracotta tiles, but the kitchen where there’s the original cotto tiles dated back to the ‘800. The kitchen is an incredible room with a huge 3-meters sink recovered from a 1700 convent. Still in this room there are both wood and gas kitchen.
From the kitchen you reach the dining room with a fireplace rebuilt on the old recovered base dated back to 1800.
Another living area with the same details like the hexagonal cotto tiles and the tuscan ceiling with restored beams.
Here there’s the studio room now used as lab, which can be the 4-5th bedroom, and the bathroom with shower. All ground floor rooms have access to the front garden.
On the first floor there’s the first double bedroom with a studio room next to it, this one can be another bedroom as well, and a bathroom with shower.
