Nestled in the very heart of the hills between Valdelsa and Valdera, in the middle of the ancient, huge Selva di Camporena, as the Middle Age people used to name that enormous and deep forest, the medieval, picturesque village of Iano, boasting thousands-year- old Etruscan origins, overlooks a magic landscape of touching beauty. In clear days the view encompasses the splendid towns of Volterra, Pisa and runs westwards up to the Tyrrhenian Sea while enjoying a majestic sequence of green, ochre, brown, yellow and the stunning, rose-shaded colours of the sunset which lays softly down onto the mild hills of the countryside near Florence. The exclusive property proposed by GH Luxury Estate is a truly magnificent ancient Tuscan farmhouse in raw stone, masterfully restored in passionate compliance and respect of the local tradition and spirit of place; the building stands out for its strategic position, right outside Iano, where to find basic services and a few gourmet restaurants. This magnificent ancient country house lies in the middle of a 10,000 sqm perfectly maintained private park finely planted with cypresses, olive trees and flowering shrubs and enriched by a huge infinity pool featuring luxury finishing in raw stone and mosaic-tiles, whirlpool area and state-of- the art water control tools. All rooms of the huge ground floor are connected and embellished by impressive arches, wooden- beamed ceilings, fireplaces and stone staircases, all of them featuring a traditional style though with a contemporary, refined touch; they all open onto two huge porches, perfectly equipped for outdoor relax and meetings. A private gym with indoor whirlpool and a billiard room enrich the ground area, from where a staircase in stone and crystal climbs up to the 1 st floor, featuring six bedrooms and six bathroom, a private studio and a loft equipped for indoor relax. Building materials and finishing are of highest quality and include cocciopesto floors, made according to a very old and typically Italian technique, dating back to ancient Roman civilization, which mixes crushed bricks together with lime, hand-made encausto-technique plasters, where natural coloured pigments are hand-mixed with water and wax, and travertine marble components in all rooms, embellished by elegant architectural details such as columns and arches. The property stands out as one of the most prestigious in the area, notably for the perfection of the restoration, its classy-country style and its central position in a charming landscape. A special area inside the property allows helicopter landing and an international golf course (27 holes) is just a 10 minutes’ drive away.
