Formerly this characteristic stone house of 381 m² was the holiday home of an internationally renowned artist who came to Italy in this place of absolute privacy in the woods of Gaiole in Chianti near San Gusme, Tuscany, where his life was illuminated by creativity within these spartan environments, where he could work surrounded by silence and uncontaminated nature.
The property includes 1,4 hectares of land, mostly woodland, and it also comprises a ruin with potential to become an annex.
On the ground floor, the house includes a lobby with utility room and bathroom, a large living room with fireplace, a kitchen of the same size with fireplace and another room of good size with lower ceilings.
Upstairs, connected both internally and through an exterior staircase in stone, we find another hall with fireplace, three spacious bedrooms, a small bathroom and a very large living room with fireplace. The view from this floor is of the hilly woodland surrounding the property.
A lower wing is connected to the manor house and here we find an old wood oven and a passage that brings us to the other side of the house, this wing of 114 m² net also includes three rooms with potential to become a residential dependance thanks to the internal heights. Outside there is a lovely enclosed patio, ideal for outdoor lunches, dinners and sunbathing, and on the other side of the house we have a porch, ideal for parking the cars in the shade.
Water and electricity are present at the property that can therefore be inhabited even in this spartan manner, but a full restoration is desirable and would greatly increase the comfort. As mentioned above there is a nearby ruin with the possibility of being reconstructed creating a second dependence.
Passing the property you finally arrive at a chapel and a medieval fortress, nowadays memories of the past to be admired only from the outside, but which occasionally receive visits from exploratory walking travelers.
The perfect home for those who are willing to drive along 2 km of gravel road in order to fully immerse in the uncontaminated nature where one can enjoy long walks in the woods and truely escape from a hectic life in the city.
