The Manor House
An elegant and spacious manor house offering at least six bedrooms, fully habitable with all its original features, on the edge of a picturesque hill village and complete with outbuildings and land.
The main floor of the house has a very large central sitting room, running from the front to the back of the house, with a terracotta floor, painted beams and a stone fireplace. At one end the double doors lead out onto a large stone terrace with a lovely view, below which there is a terraced vegetable garden, and adjacent to which there is further land with cherry and fig trees. At the other end of the sitting room, the doors give onto stone steps that lead down to a large flat grassy area, private and very suitable for a pool.
Off the living room is a fantastic farmhouse kitchen, fully restored and working, with a stone sink, cotto floors, painted beams, and a wood burning stove set in a fireplace with wooden mantelpiece. The main floor also contains two other large rooms, currently unused, an entrance room, a bathroom with shower and a laundry room.
There are arched stone cantine/wine cellars below the house, accessed from the kitchen. Central heating (oil/gas/wood options) has been installed on the main floor.
A stone staircase with an iron balustrade leads to the first floor and a further very large living room, off which there are four bedrooms, all with cotto floors and frescoed walls and ceilings. There is also a bathroom furnished in pink marble. Above this there is a second floor, currently used for storage and with a similar room layout to the other floors.
The outbuildings consist of a large barn attached to the house which is mainly derelict, probably the original gate house. This contains a bread oven and well house on the ground floor and a few other rooms above, mainly roofless and in need of total restoration. There is a second two storey building needing work adjacent to the grassy area that could be developed to house facilities for a pool, and a third derelict building nearer the village a short distance away. There is car access and plenty of room for parking on the property. Adjacent to the house there is an area of land running up the hill, estimated at around 30,000 sq.m.
