An unusual house within walking distance of Sarteano, set into the hillside, in a tranquil position, with perfect views on all sides. The house, originally a mill dating back to 1400, has been cleverly restored to make the most of its special features, notably the gushing stream that runs down along the west side of the house and the transformation of the lower floor of the mill into a wonderful open space with an unusual fireplace and dining area for entertaining. Originally restored in 1973 further works to the plumbing, wiring and updating kitchen and bathrooms were carried out in 2019 and the bedrooms have air conditioning. The rippling sound of water pervades the house and adds an atmosphere of calm and peacefulness. Add to that the little cottage on the other side of the lane, perfect for your guests or rental income.
