An ideal second home within easy reach of Rome. This fully restored farmhouse and newly built guest cottage are situated in rolling countryside, providing perfect peace and tranquility. The main house provides 3 bedrooms and bathrooms but can also be divided to contain a completely independent 1 bedroom guest apartment with its own entrance, kitchen and access to the pool. Both the main house and cottage are surrounded with paved terraces with a covered portico providing plenty of space for dining and relaxing. The restoration has been carried out sympathetically whilst including modern comforts such as underfloor heating, solar panels and a photovoltaic system which has greatly reduced the running costs of the house.

La Quercia Vecchia is surrounded by open countryside with stunning views up to the town of Proceno, to Radicofani and Monte Amiata. On the borders separating Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio the property is ideally placed for visiting the medieval towns surrounding the Val d’Orcia to the north, skiing on Monte Amiata and a direct route to Rome avoiding the A1.

The property is approached by a cypress tree lined driveway leading past the guest annex to the main house. There is approximately 1.12 hectares of manicured garden with mature oak trees and fruit trees including cherries, plums and apples. A barbecue area with outside table and stone barbecue/fireplace is in the perfect position with spectacular views to the town of Proceno whilst the gated pool area is ideal for relaxing and sun bathing around the 10 x 5 m pool with roman steps.
