Apart from an immaculately restored 3 bedroom town house that has been sympathetically finished with original features and modern touches, this property also has a pretty terraced garden and fabulous swimming pool that is partially covered by the old barn. Not to forget the beautiful views of the historic hamlet and over rolling hills to horizons filled with the silhouettes of cypresses and olive trees. Its not often we get so excited about village properties but this is truly special, the modern appliances, white walls and metal doors contrast perfectly with the old beams and stone floors on the first floor and there are 3 ample sized bedrooms with wooden floors and a separate sitting room on the second floor. The ground floor rooms have been converted into a kitchen and bathroom for the pool and garden area and a further room for guest accommodation if necessary.

Monterongriffoli is a rare part of Tuscany that time has left untouched, with very few inhabitants (only 9 are permanent residents) and the only noise coming from the chiming bells of the church. Every day amenities can be found at the nearby San Giovanni d’Asso but there is a fruit and vegetable supplier that visits the hamlet once a week. Siena can be found just 45 kms away by car and airports are still very accessible at Florence (120kms) or Rome (230kms)

The property is reached through a pretty gate and arched entrance leading to the garden of around 100 sq.m with stone walls creating terraces featuring various areas for sitting or dining amongst the olive trees or playing boules.  The true highlight of the external area is the pool, made inside the old barn and maintaining the original ‘capriata’ beam, half of the pool is delightfully covered in shade whilst half is external.
