Wonderful stone farmhouse of 230 sqm perfectly restored and surrounded by the private garden of 3000 sqm. The property is located just 30 km away from the metropolitan city of Florence in a privileged position overlooking the surrounding hills full of olive trees and the town which is located a few km away. The atmosphere you breathe is typical of the Tuscan countryside intense in its colours and welcoming in its paths.
Greve has added the denomination "in Chianti" since 1977, is part of the metropolitan city of Florence in Tuscany, located on the via Chiantigiana, which connects Florence with Siena passing through the suggestive panorama of Chianti. Strategically positioned to easily reach the traditional farms producing wine and oil but also the famous trattorias after tasting the typical Chianina steak. Summers are cooler than those in the center of Florence enjoying a favourable and mild microclimate.
Leaving the state road and following a well-beaten secondary road, you reach the gate of the property. Entering and looking at the cottage you immediately perceive how much care the owners have reserved for the renovation made with local stone cut and laid by hand. The main entrance on the ground floor leads to the large living room with an ancient fireplace and to the typically Tuscan-style kitchen. A storage room and a large compartment currently used as a clearing area complete the living area. The porch overlooking the eat-in kitchen is suitable for dining out on summer evenings inebriated by the intense scent of jasmine that covers the pergola. Through a comfortable wooden staircase you reach the sleeping area on the first floor, the four double bedrooms are served by two bathrooms located in the central part of the floor but both with windows.
A welcome feature is reserved for the master bedroom which overlooks the loggia which is also habitable. The garage connected by a door to the living area can accommodate a car and the cellar.
Accessing the cottage from two independent entrances, one driveway and one pedestrian, you get to the 3000 square meter garden where can be created a wonderful infinity pool. The partly flat garden has been planted with fruit trees, the hedges are always green and lush, a corner where you can make BBQ. Totally fenced and mechanically irrigated make it easy in maintaining. Outside the fence, 5 cars can be parked in a private area. A small strip of land adjacent to the parking area is sold and it is possible to use it to expand the spaces.
State and finishes
Fully furnished in a rustic Tuscan style and restored using recycled materials, the cottage is perfect in all its parts. The ancient terracotta was used for the floor of the living area, the parquet was laid in the rooms while for the kitchen decorated tiles were chosen that make the environment comfortable and familiar. The cottage is warm in winter and cool in summer because it is protected by the thick walls that characterize it.
Perfect for a family who wants to live in the countryside without sacrificing the convenience of services, and the proximity to Florence.
