Description in Detail
Casa nella Collina is a typical stone country house located just above the hills of Greve in Chianti, in the beautiful landscape of the Chianti region near Florence. This house offers a panoramic view all over the hillsides and important monuments close to Greve, such as the Pieve di San Cresci, Castello di Montefioralle and Castello di Colognole.
The property is composed of two buildings, the main villa of about 250 m2 and the second building, dedicated to the 3 apartments used for the agriturismo. The total measurement is approximately 400 m2 and offers 7 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms. The villa has been completely restored in 1997.
In the main villa, there are 3 of the bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the current owners live there at the moment. From the main villa, you can reach a separate little apartment only accessible from outside, with only a bedroom including a little fridge and one bathroom. The owners rent this room as well.
In the second building, one apartment measures 70 m2, one about 45 m2, and the smallest one is approximately 35 m2. They all have one bedroom with a bathroom and they are complete with kitchen and outside furniture. They have independent entrances and are all decorated in the typical Tuscan style, with wooden beams and large windows to enjoy the view. Each building has central heating and an antique wood stove to keep you warm during winter times.
The land belonging to the property extends to approximately 4.6 hectares, so divided: 1.8 hectares of olive groves, 3,500 m2 (0.35 ha) of vineyards, and the remaining 2.45 hectares of forest.
In the garden surrounding the property, there are several patios and furnished areas, a grill/barbecue area, and the 5.8 m x 12 m saltwater swimming pool. In 2011 a photovoltaic system was built and produces about €2,000 of electricity a year. There is an artesian well outside with very good potable water.
This property shares a border with another property only on the backside, but still gives the absolute feeling of being free on all the four sides with complete independence. It has two entrances with two gates, one leading to the main villa, the other one leading to the second building.
