Area:
Not many properties can boast a view and sunsets like this one, stretching from Monte Cetona, Sarteano and Chianciano, past Montepulciano and Chiusi Alto all the way to nearby Citta della Pieve. The closeness of Citta della Pieve is a huge bonus, an increasingly lively medieval town that holds concerts, festivals and markets throughout the year and has great restaurants and shops. The A1 autostrada is within easy reach allowing quick and simple access to airports, major cities and towns and villages throughout Tuscany and Umbria. Chiusi railway is just 6kms with high speed train links to Rome and Florence in 90 minutes.

Land:
The property is fully fenced with electric gates and a private driveway leads to the main house through beautiful mature gardens. Lush lawns and seating terraces are all facing the magnificent views and lead down to the wonderful swimming pool area and pergola, the pool itself is 14 x 7 m with Roman steps and ideal for serious swimmers. The remainder of the land is woodland, fruit trees, a vegetable garden and most importantly, olive groves that can produce up to 1000 kgs in a good year.

Outbuildings:
Stone and brick Guest cottage (102 sq.m), fully restored in 2004 with a two bedroom apartment with kitchen on the first floor and one bedroom apartment with modern utility and ironing room on the ground floor, close to the main house but entirely independent for guests or staff.
Annex (20 sq.m.) -  Once a psychiatrists studio, ideal for an art studio, private office or further accommodation as it also has a bathroom and lovely views over the swimming pool
