Property description

Stone country house in the woods, Monteriggioni, Siena - TuscanyCharacter stone country dwelling with superb courtyard, cottage, barns all in 110 hectares of private land for sale in the outskirt of Monteriggioni, Siena. In a spectacular setting in the outstanding countryside of the Sienese Montagnola, just 5 km from Siena and 6 km from the castle of Monteriggioni, a territory lived and exploited since Etruscan times and named the ancient forest of Siena: its treasure, a vast territory on the edge of the city where hermits sought solitude and from which the men of the Middle Ages sought sustenance, with remarkable testimonies such as hermitages, Romanesque churches, castles, but also small farms and dry stone walls. Within the forest, time, marked by natural rhythms, slows down and still allows to reconstruct the reality of the old days. Surrounded by more than 100 hectares of ancient woods with oaks and chestnut trees, the Fortilizio del Bosco welcomes in a characteristic stone-walled courtyard that is the centerpiece and fulcrum of the entire property and where the imposing three-story manor house stands out with its turret, along with a guest house in the form of a three-story cottage, a green house and storage barn. Formerly a rural nucleus with stables, it was initially recovered and brought to new life in the 1970s as a vacation home for the Italian family that still owns it today and has lived here four generations of everlasting memories. The manor house is a dwelling rich in historical details and traditional features such as antique terracotta floors, ceilings with majestic chestnut beams, and wood-burning fireplaces present throughout the living area. The central entrance lobby opens onto two reception rooms and the wooden staircase leading to the upper floors. The main reception room benefits of French windows, two wood-burning fireplaces featured in the dining room as well, perfectly set in front of a wooden table that can easily seat up to sixteen people. The modern kitchen, with a central island, is well connected to the dining area, the laundry, the downstairs bathroom and utility rooms. Upstairs house eight spacious and bright double bedrooms and four fully renovated bathrooms finished in modern style. Up a spiral staircase the turret, with an endless and breathless view: from here you can glimpse the hills of Chianti Classico along with ancient parishes and villages nestled among vineyards and olive groves. The second building overlooking the courtyard, once used as a barn and cellar and recovered as a guest house with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, needs some updates, as does the Guardian House, slightly detached from the central core. Within the forest, in front of the Guardian House, persist two small annexes used as storage, to be recovered. The landscaped gardens that immediately surround the complex, perfect for an in-ground swimming pool, overlook the olive grove with some 300 plants, lawn and benefits of a 260-meter-deep well. The entire property land is fully fenced. A multiple-use charming residence in a rural position but close to the city of Siena and to the major centers of historical and cultural interest of this Tuscan province that boasts four Unesco heritage sites, among the best wines loved worldwide and a millenary folk tradition: the Wood Fort House is a perfect property to be lived all year round, ideal as a leisure and vacation home to enjoy with family and friends or to host tourists and travelers for their holidays.PROPERTY Ref: SIE2608Type: 110 hectares estate consisting of private forested including 1075 sq m/ 11571 sq ft ancient stone borgo with a 600 sq m/ 6458 sq ft three-story manor house with a turret, a 260 sq m/ 2798 sq ft three-story guest cottage, a 100 sq m/ 1076 sq ft two-story guardian house and 115 sq m of barns within the courtyardPossibility to build an in-ground pool
