Prestigious seventeenth century villa of around 500 m2 once owned by a family of nobles called Borghesi. The villa enjoys a secluded location, surrounded by approximately 10 hectares (25 acres) of land, and due to its elevated position has commanding views of the surrounding countryside, including to Monte Amiata and San Giovanni d'Asso. This medieval walled town is famed for being the heartland for white truffles and is the focal point of the Crete Senesi. San Giovanni d'Asso can be reached on foot within 15 minutes.
The villa has two floors. From the main entrance on the ground floor a wide, arched corridor leads to the kitchen, the dining room, a study, a bathroom and an extremely spacious salon.
Arched glass doors lead to the terrace and afford views over the surrounding countryside.
Within the salon elegant marble steps adorned by wrought iron railings lead upstairs to a sitting room with a panoramic terrace on one side and sleeping quarters on the other. In total there are five double bedrooms and a smaller guest room. All are ensuite.
The complete restoration of the buildings was finished in 2009, and faithfully respected the characteristics of a 17th-centry villa.
The swimming pool is located on the side of the villa with the most panoramic views. The pool is newly built, with a water cleaning system based on salt. The dimensions of the pool are 14 metres long (46.9 feet) by 5 metres wide (16.4 feet). The depth of the pool is between 120cm (4 feet) and 150cm (5 feet), depths which respect the official norms laid down for holiday home swimming pools.
