In the heart of Southern Maremma, right on the Tuscany-Latium border, at 10km from the gorgeous medieval village of Capalbio and the coastline, a semidetached farmhouse in good conditions of approx. 2.500 sqm, 1 hectare of land e 100 olive trees.
Set on a hilly position in a country shabby-chic hamlet combined of other 3 real estate units and manicured gardens, the house benefits from a private section of the courtyard most likely served for private parking and home’s access.
Entering the front door one may feel a pleasant surprise of contrast, like stepping from reality into a wonderful lofted space with timber vaulted truss ceilings, double heights and galleried rooms. This magnificent space, of approx. 90 sqm and triple exposure, combines a sitting area by the fireplace and a dining place, divided by a spiral stairway and it is contiguous to a very charming kitchen, fully equipped with an original antique hat cabinet from Borsalino; a door opens to the maid room and toilet.
On the opposite side, a double French window opens onto a generously sized porch and garden, a sunny field of green lawns, patched with century-old cork oaks and cypresses. Following the ‘L shaped’ layout an hallway leads to the sleeping area which comprises: a twin bedroom, two shower-rooms, the stairway and, at the very end, an independent double bedroom with two direct accesses to the front and the back garden own private porticos.
On the attic floor a large landing leads to: a double en-suite bedroom with bathroom; a twin bedroom that enjoys an eagle view over the downstairs reception room and en-suite shower-room. Symmetrical to this space but on the opposite side, an open galleried room with separate cloakroom and shower-room.
A few elements and fittings of fine rural-antique origins such as doors, handles, appliques give charm and character to the house. Designed and built in 2000 with materials and techniques to make it thermally insulated, the house provides walls sealed from the heat in summer and the cold in winters.
The estate comes with a project to develop both a swimming pool and a guesthouse of 40 sqm, successfully submitted, which provides a favorable and exploitable asset that would not only add value and upgrade to the property, but also improve its enjoyability.
About the area: Maremma is one of the most unspoiled regions in Tuscany and Latium that, in the last decades, has become one the most exclusive holiday destinations both for its fascinating beauty of the coastlines and the archipelago’s islands, the many medieval hamlets in the hilly countryside and for its fabulous weather. Last but not least, the excellent tradition in food and wine and its easy accessibility, Rome and Fiumicino’s airport at just over 1hr drive, requirements that make this estate evermore alluring.
