Main Building

Ground Floor

The entrance hall opens out into a spacious living/dining room stretching the length of the building and divided into sections by traditional brick arches. There is a fireplace in the central section and satellite TV with DVD and panoramic glass doors at one end of the living room lead outside. The formal dining area is located at the other end of the living room and glass doors here open out onto a covered, furnished terrace.

The dining area opens into the large, well-equipped kitchen with ample work surfaces, a restaurant-size gas range with steak grill, oven, fridge with freezer and dishwasher. An open brick arch in the kitchen creates a delightful informal dining area on one side. And more doors lead you outside, making this whole area light and airy.

Also on the ground floor is a laundry room that includes a washing machine, clothes dryer and ironing facilities and a bathroom with washbasin and WC.

First Floor

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and three twin bedrooms. There are two more large bathrooms with bathtubs and shower facilities and a smaller bathroom with washbasin, WC and shower.

The owner has personally directed the restoration of the house and her impeccable taste in colors and fabrics is seen throughout. The building feels light and airy while still maintaining the traditional building with beamed ceilings, brickwork and the cotto floors. All the tiles in the the kitchen and bathrooms are decorated by hand.

Both are included in the price.

Also within the grounds is a separate gym with 7 specialized pieces of equipment, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, and a Turkish bath. The keyholder will provide you with the access keys.

The Tuscany region

Famous for a wealth of art, history, striking landscapes and outstanding produce, Tuscany really does have the best of all worlds.Slightly further afield but definitely not to be missed are Florence (85 km) and Rome (200 km). The golf green at Chianciano Terme is at a 45 minute drive and the Ugolino golf green near Firenze is an hour?s drive away.

The grounds surrounding the house are part of a farming estate, complete with formal park at its center. Lying 23 km south of Siena, Villa Serravalle is perfectly placed for visitors to explore the gentle, carefully-cultivated hills occasionally broken by picturesque towns and villages.The nearest village of Buonconventoa is 3 km away and contains shops and restaurants. Montalcino - famous for the prestigious wine, Brunello di Montalcino - is 12 km away and the historic city of Siena is 23 km away.
