A true paradise on earth, this wonderful country house is the result of a careful and classy restoration beginning in 2010 of an ancient observation tower of the Castle of Ripa d' Orcia. Thanks to its strategic position, completely immersed in the Val d'Orcia, listed on UNESCO Wold Heritage Site List, it enjoys a breath-taking view of the Castle of Ripa d'Orcia, Bagno Vignoni and Montalcino, as well as the rolling green hills of Tuscany. Its location is also privileged and well protected despite being about 400 meters above sea level. It ensures a mild climate that allows you to enjoy the outdoor areas all year long. The property is now a private house on three levels, on the ground floor all the rooms have external access ensuring great brightness despite the thick stone walls of the old tower. The spaces are large and comfortable and above all finely furnished and designed, from the beautiful and large kitchen with direct access to the fully equipped BBQ area, to the dining room connected with the covered veranda, perfect for a winter garden and then the terrace, where there is always sun and perfect for relaxing or sunbathing throughout the day. The main entrance opens onto the living rooms, from which one can access the study and the bedroom, as well as two bathrooms. On the same level externally one finds the purified chlorine pool with direct access also from the terrace/solarium.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms with three bathrooms and large central hallway, also here the elegance and comfort are the core of the furniture that respect the authenticity of the past but also give a touch of modernity.
The underfloor heating system can also work as a refreshing system to ensure maximum comfort during the summer. In the basement with direct access to the outside there are two bedrooms with a bathroom and a living area with kitchenette, perfect as an independent apartment or for a care taker, the laundry room, utility room, pantry and a large garage of 47 sqm.
Completely fenced the property is surrounded by a plot of approx 3ha 2066mq with about 400 olive trees in production, surrounded by greenery and nature. To access the property there is about 6km of dirt road in great condition that runs along the ancient Via Francigena, a truly beautiful panoramic path.
22km from Montalcino, 18km from Pienza, 5km from Bagno Vigoni, and only 90km from the wildest and most unspoilt coastline.
