Description in Detail
I want to live here! This is what comes to mind when you arrive at Villa Chianti Sunset, right from the welcoming entrance in the garden. The home was designed down to the smallest details so you can enjoy Tuscany as one should, Villa Chianti Sunset is truly pleasant and a great home all-year-round. It is divided into three units (easily reunited into one) allows you to host friends from all over the world and share moments of pure joy sitting in front of the various fireplaces or comfortably in the garden enjoying the view of golden sunsets… drinking wine and sharing dreams… This is the spirit of this beautiful home!
Villa Chianti Sunset is a real treasure due to its picturesque views over the rolling Tuscan hills and the exquisite renovations which have kept the rustic Tuscan elements. The bathrooms were all designed by the well-known interior designer Riccardo Barthel and the finest materials and finishing were used throughout the home during the renovations. Throughout the home, there is still the original terracotta flooring, antique fireplaces, wooden-beamed ceilings, and brick archways. The outside of the building still boasts the original stones and shines the glam of a traditional Rustic Tuscan Casa Colonica.
Villa Chianti Sunset lays on 1 hectare (2.47 acres) of land with about 90 olive trees and includes a lovely infinity pool of 9 m x 14 m, sunbeds, a charming pergola, and a plethora of outdoor seating areas for relaxation and long Tuscan meals. The views from the poolside, garden, and bedrooms are like picture-perfect frames of Tuscany, so awe-inspiring! In the distance, over the hills, vineyards, and olive groves you can see San Gimignano’s medieval towers dotting the rolling hills. The home’s garden completes its perfection with amazing golden sunsets!
The historic main home, which was the ancient farmhouse, measures 450 m2 (4,844 ft2), it dates back to the 1200s and in the entrance, you can still see the remnants of the original tower. The large kitchen was the old bakery for the entire town, now it’s renovated but still boasts the Tuscan warm charm. On the ground floor, there are also two inviting living rooms with an antique fireplace, a dining room, and a bathroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms and another separate bathroom. All of the bedrooms have wonderful views of the countryside.
During the 1800s another apartment was added to the home measuring 120 m2 (1,292 ft2), it would be easy to connect it to the main home as there are still doorways present in the current traditional walls. This apartment has its own independent entrance and includes a large kitchen, a dining room, a large living room with a fireplace, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
There is a third small apartment of 80 m2 (861 ft2) which was the home’s old wine cellar. It has been renovated into a sweet guest house with its own independent entrance, parking area, and garden; making it ideal for staff or guests. The apartment includes one bedroom, one bathroom, a warm living room with a fireplace, a kitchen, and a dining room.
