Discover the Real Tuscany With This Beautiful Country House

Property of the Week: This gorgeous Tuscan villa is the perfect retreat for exploring Italy.

By Serina Tatham

Enviously positioned atop a hill in the Tuscan countryside, this villa is a masterpiece. A perfect marriage between old and modern design, it was considerately built to ensure the interior was bright, with large windows bringing the outside in.

Placed over the ruins of a 19th-century country house, the 2,744-sq-ft villa is a reimagining of traditional countryside buildings (think stone-covered walls and wooden beams).

The villa’s main body is spread over a single floor with plenty of doors to extend the living space outside. Laid over three floors, there are two towers (one at each end of the house), featuring ample windows overlooking the garden and surrounding landscape.

Entering the first tower on the ground floor, the living area, open-plan kitchen area and dining room have spectacular views of the countryside and famous rolling hills. Windowed corridors join two towers to this central building where, on one side, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom, and on the other side there is a sitting area and further bedroom.

This second tower can be used as a guest annex for visiting friends or family as it can be accessed independently of the main house. As great care was taken in choosing furnishings that seamlessly integrate into the building, the home comes fully furnished.

The villa is surrounded by a meticulously maintained two-acre garden made up of paved walkways, planted areas, a large pool, multiple patios ideal for alfresco dining and two olive groves.

While you’ll feel fully immersed in the countryside, some of Italy’s most historic cities — Pisa, Florence and Siena — can be easily reached in under an hour and a half, making this the perfect retreat for exploring Italy.
