The property is in excellent condition, after undergoing meticulous renovation work about ten years ago: the bricks, all selected from original materials recovered in the area, and the wood and terracotta floors were chosen in order to provide maximum comfort and warmth inside the house.
The top of the range kitchen, with Gaggenau elements, is the best the market has to offer, as are the fixtures and the skilfully placed windows that provide as much natural light as possible.
This is a rustic farmhouse with a contemporary style.
The park that surrounds the farmhouse is entirely fenced in and was designed by Paghera S.p.A., offering an enchanting scenario with tall trees and century-old olive trees, as well as several varieties of plants and flowers.
In this setting, there is an infinity pool made by Castiglioni, with Gandia Blasco exterior decor elements, making a relaxing oasis surrounded by greenery.
There is also an annexe of about 25 sqm complementing the property (currently used as a tool shed) and a sheltered area of 30mq for vehicles.
Facilities & utilities
Underfloor heating, an alarm system, an air-conditioned wine cellar integrated into the kitchen.
