Description of buildings
The farmhouse measures 637 gross sqm, is spread over two levels and is currently divided into two large, completely independent apartments.
The entrance hall leads directly into a large living/dining room with a central fireplace, in which you will be pleasantly surprised by the large spaces (with exposed white wood ceilings over 4m high) and numerous French doors looking out onto the garden.
Laterally, there is a kitchenette with a pantry. Also on the ground floor, opposite the living room, there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.
A beautiful decorative staircase, with solid stone steps embedded in the wall, leads to the upper floor, which consists of two large bedrooms, a study/lounge completely overlooking the living room below and a bathroom.
The heart of this apartment is again the living/dining room, which also has ceilings over 4m high, this time with natural wood beams, and large windows. In the living space, in addition to the dining area, there are also large sofas and armchairs facing a stone fireplace and a billiard table. The kitchen is large, with a pantry at the back and, if necessary, it can be closed off by double sliding glass doors. On the ground floor there are also two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The upper floor can be reached thanks to an exposed steel and wood staircase that ends in a large hallway/lounge, which overlooks the living room below.
Following on, the sleeping area consists of a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a wardrobe, another two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The property comes complete with an annexe, used as a warehouse/storage area and car garage, which has a gross floor area of 274 sqm and a 55 sqm storehouse.
Energy efficiency class: G.
The farmhouse is in perfect condition, recently renovated with high quality materials and finishes, and is divided into two large dwellings, almost equal in size, with pale stone floors in living area and parquet floors in the sleeping area. The only difference between them is the colour of the ceilings (white in apartment 1 and natural wood colour in apartment 2).
The property is complemented by three hectares of private land; the area surrounding the buildings is lawned and is bordered by hedges and a fence. On the opposite side to that of the entrance to the property, a swimming pool with a sundeck has been built.
Usage and potential
Thanks to its location, in the open countryside and at the same time close to a medium-sized town like Grosseto (6 km) and to the Tyrrhenian Sea (9 km), Cascina San Rocco is ideal both as a main residence for one or two families and also as a holiday home, with the possibility to combine it with tourist accommodation.
