Rare spacious apartment with large garden in historic Siena village
Life in a historic medieval Tuscan village offers many advantages: an authentic sense of community and belonging; shops & services are often just a brief walk away; cultural events throughout the year animate social life.
Yet few historic village homes have a back garden allowing full enjoyment of the moderate climate. With its large private garden, this spacious home in Serre di Rapolano, just half an hour from Siena, is a rare find.
The property comprises a large apartment on two levels (329 m² approx.), a garage (29 m² approx.) and a “storage building” configured as a mini-apartment with bath (12 m² approx.). A unique private garden (267 m² approx.) completes the picture.
The completely furnished living quarters consist of a large living room with a working fireplace (it has a stainless steel flue), a study, a walk-in closet, 3 bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms, all on the first floor. The ground floor has a large entrance hall, another 2 bedrooms, each with a bath, and a breakfast room with entrance to the garden. One of the bedrooms opens out to a pergola in the garden. The kitchen and dining room, with a large fireplace suitable for cooking, is located on the mezzanine between the two levels.
The garden overlooks the English forest created in the 19th century by the Gori Martini family, on the old charcoal burners of the castle. In addition to two pergola, the garden includes a small fish pond and a cistern.
The home is in good to excellent condition. The ground floor was recently renovated.
In addition to being in what is arguably the most beautiful part of Tuscany, Serre di Rapolano is known for its travertine stone quarries; in mid-May it hosts the traditional medieval spring festival Serremaggio. The nearby Rapolano Terme is known for its warm thermal pools. Siena is an easy 30 minutes away via the Siena-Bettolle motorway/highway.
