The Villa of Poppies is an 18th century villa recently restored to a high standard yet keeping all the original features – mixing faded red brick with original stone externally; beautiful beamed ceilings, terra cotta floors & travertine marble bathrooms internally. Sunny, bright, airy & spacious, the interiors are finished perfectly with an eye to comfort & designed with Italian influence.
A large sitting room with doors to the garden leads through to equally large kitchen which is fully fitted – dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, cooker and larder together with a large pine table (seating 8/10) & chairs with pine dresser and side board – 3 doors open onto the brick covered terrace, perfect for al fresco dining with a large garden table & chairs, together with a barbeque.
One double bedroom en suite on the ground floor & 3 bedrooms & marble bathrooms upstairs, one with its own private balcony. All the bedrooms are distinct and individually beautifully decorated. Outside a there is a 12 x 6 metre pool with a D end and steps to the shallow end. The gardens and pool are lit at night. The farmhouse is surrounded by its own fenced garden and gates, ideal grounds for family and relax. A perfect spot to relax with the local wines & olives as the sun sets over the mountains.
Situated down a quiet track, close to the village and its amenities, the property lies only 10 minutes from the beautiful, ancient, walled town of Castiglione del Lago. Close to the Tuscan border, easy driving distance to many beautiful towns such as Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Spoleto, Gubbio and an easy train journey to Florence & Rome.
This is a beautifully quiet family home. Outside the gates you can go for a run, walk down the quiet country tracks through vineyards & olive groves or simply sit by the pool and relax. Get away from it all. No one will disturb you.
